January 6, 2014


There's truly something so magical about the winter light. In Phoenix, we have months and months of the harsh, bright (hot!) sun gracing us with it's presents, so when the cooler months roll around, I tend to cherish every moment of the soft light that shines down upon is in the city. January truly is such a special month, not only for it's amazing light, but also for holding some of the soon-to-be best days of my life. T-minus 12 days and counting!

This weekend really went by way too fast, but I did knock a few wedding errands off my to-do list! Finalizing our cake order, meeting with our wedding planner, Katherine of Lucky & in Love, picking up a few accessories, helping pick out bridesmaids shoes and so much more. On Saturday, I spent a few hours in downtown Phoenix in the neatest salon having my hair and makeup trial done by the extremely talented Marianna Marie of Blonde and Banker. We chit chatted about the local music scene, makeup, hair, and realizing even more that our paths have crossed in the past (we're talking way back in 2007!). She did an amazing job on my trial, and made me feel absolutely beautiful! I'm so excited to have her be a part of our big day!  

Today, I'm back in the office after working from home for almost the past two weeks. I feel very blessed that my job allows me to work at home during such special times of the year,  but I do have to say, extra coffee is much needed today for a lady who has been out of the office for so long. If anyone feels like bringing me any, I would certainly not be opposed! Scott did make me a yummy breakfast and packed me a very happy lunch for my first Monday back. Since the new year began, I've been focusing on eating healthy and listening to my body better. So far, I've been feeling great and also feeling less bloated (tmi? meh!). I've been reading up on the Whole30 program and feeling very inspired to eat less processed foods and more fruits and veggies. I'll admit though, I'm really missing sugar - daily treats are my thing!

Ok, I'm off for a busy day of work and wedding errands this evening! We're in the home stretch now, and I'm getting more and more excited as the days slip closer and closer to January 18th. I would love to read any bridal/wedding advice ya'll might have for a bride to be!

  1. I just left Phoenix because my hubby got a job in Louisiana. This makes me homesick! Arizona is so beautiful, and I get to see it every time I look at your posts. :)

  2. Stay calm and try not to stress. When the big day arrives, none of the details will matter. My wedding was in November and it poured all weekend, but we made it work. Have fun and can't wait to see pictures.
