We got married on September 2nd, the Friday over Labor Day weekend. It was such a gorgeous day outside. Not too hot, and not too cold. A perfect overcast with the sun shining at just the right moments. I was so beyond thankful. Since we had our venue picked out very early on, the vibe of the day was pretty clear to us. We wanted to embrace the beauty of the venue itself, surrounded by the beautiful grounds, tall trees, hills, and greenery. We highlighted the sage greens, the neutral creams with a hint of gold. We wanted a timeless, romantic feel and that is exactly how it came to be. We had a year to plan, which meant all the DIY projects I could possibly fit in to that time frame. I can’t capture everything in one post, so I am breaking things down, up first: The Details.
Since I have started this blog, I have had the opportunity to meet some extraordinary, inspiring women. It's not often you meet someone who is so passionate about what they do, that it just radiates from their being. I had the privilege of meeting the woman behind Maeve's All Natural and try her prodcuts.
Me and my my hair haven't always gotten along. When I was younger, everyone had thin, straight, blonde hair and I had thick, wavy brunette hair. I never had any urge to go blonde—that would be a disaster—but I did always want straighter hair. As I got older, I learned to love my hair.
