february re-cap

I know y’all aren’t surprised that I disappeared from the world of blogging because this happens. In fact, my disappearances are probably more reliable than my posts, at this point in time. But it’s the end of February, and I thought I’d share some February things with you.

We booked our wedding venue.

Grad school is still happening.

But not for long! I try to ignore this most days, but there are 10 weeks until my graduation. Which is so not enough time to finish all the things that must be finished — most importantly, my Master’s portfolio & defense exam. This is the main reason I don’t blog these days, but I should be back in full form in early May!

Inspiration for Feb. – March

I see a lot of bloggers posting inspiration & photo posts via Pinterest, and I really dig it on others’ blog, so why not do it here? Here are some pins that have been working for me in February.

Who knows if Faulker actually said this last quote (quotes are often mis-attributed on the internet), but I do still love the sentiment.

Enjoy March, everyone!



  1. what venue is it? and what photog did you go with? ahhh i love wedding planning. let me know if you need any vendor recommendations.

    also, i saw that “faulkner” quote and thought the same thing. love the sentiment, but not sure he said that. either way, writing is best. (actually, you’re best, but faulkner was never lucky enough to know you, so i can’t attribute that quote to him.)

    • it’s the antique rose emporium in independence, texas! i am so excited to be getting married in a giant rose garden, an old fashioned chapel, and a restored victorian home! the pavilion where the reception will be (the dinner & the dancing) even has this stone fountain!
      my photographer is jennifer jones with luxe photography. she is working with christy cude, which is how i found her. i just adored christy’s engagement session & one thing led to another…. and if you’ve got any tips about bridal gown shopping / choosing a boutique, that’s where i’m focusing now. our caterer and florist and baker will be local to college station.
      and writing IS the best. i try to stay up with it & blogging, but often, i don’t. that’s why i love the sentiment of the quote: reminds me to focus. 🙂
