Our Wedding

Twas the Night Before Our Wedding

by

Our rehearsal was a perfect day by itself.  I spent the majority of the morning at the pool with my bridesmaids and mom just relaxing and laughing. Like I’ve said before, our wedding wasn’t a stressful affair.  The planning was so much fun and even though there were challenges (like living 4,000 miles away from […] Read more…

See You in the Morning, See You in the Evening, See You at Supper Time

by

When I was growing up every night my mom and I would sing this same little song right before she closed the door and I had to go to sleep.  I can still see her standing in my bedroom door.  The little song went: “See you in the morning, see you in the evening, see […] Read more…

It’s the Little Things

by

This week I started making mental notes about all the little things that make me happy even when I don’t realize it.  Don’t get me wrong, even when I lived in Indiana and had a crazy hectic schedule I still looked for the little things to make me happy.  I’ve never been much of the […] Read more…

Whadaweek, Whadalife

Oh boy.  It has been an amazing and emotional week for Miss Gillespie (soon-to-be Mrs. Courtney).  This week, flight prices almost cut in half which caused a ripple effect of our friends and family booking tickets to Hawai`i for the wedding.  Every time someone new booked a ticket I would jump up and down screaming.
