    Letters to the Bride – Quality Time

    As we draw nearer to the wedding, just 8 days away now, my friend Jo brings us the next letter in the To The Bride series. Tonight, she’ll cover the importance of quality time. This is perfect for us because Cole’s job keeps him away from home so often that we really strive to make the most of the time that we do have together. Jo lives in and loves her home town of Houston. She is a project manager by day and a gal that is always looking for a laugh and a creative outlet (i.e. blogger) in her spare time. She has a love of travel, is fond…

    Letters to the Bride – Newlywed Life

    Hannah Rachel Boutique Try-On & Review

    If you follow me on Instagram, you’re familiar with the shopping haul videos I post in my stories.

I wanted to share the heart and story behind this shop that makes it so special.   The three pieces I’ll review here are the top shown above, the vest shown below, and a tie-front dress.

    Guide to The Emerald City as told by The Future Embertons

    On August 21, 2017, my 22nd birthday, and the 4th birthday that I spent with Cole, he surprised me with two plane tickets. For years, I’d dreamed of going to the rainy coffee capital of the country, and the backdrop of the Twilight movies, Seattle. Four months later, after my last final, we watched YouTube videos on how to pack for a week in a carry-on, and made our way to DFW. Together, we navigated the airport, successfully found our terminal and boarded the plane. I hadn’t flown in over five years, but I was uncharacteristically calm as the plane took off and we climbed to cruising altitude. Stepping off…
