Hello friends, family, and followers!
Last year, I posted a healthy new habit I made each month, and along with those posts, I updated my blog with life experiences and photos from that month. I love looking back on those monthly posts to see where Derek and I were at in life, and what memories we were making at that time. Since I am not doing my healthy new habit for each month this year, I haven’t been posting as much as I would like.
I started this blog to have a place where I could share all of the many photos that I take, the videos I make, and the things we experience in our everyday lives. With that being said, I am going to start doing “journal entries” posts on my blog.
I blog mostly for myself, but I also do it for Derek, for friends and family, and eventually, our future babies. I don’t know if anyone will read these, because most of the time, people only care when you have something really exciting going on in your life. And sometimes we do very exciting things like travel, renovate our house, or adopt a dog, but most of the time we are doing not so exciting every day things just like everyone else, and I want to remember the small moments just as much as the BIG exciting ones.
So here it goes!

A couple of weeks ago, we helped our sweet friend Allie film a video for film school. It was fun to be on camera and feel like a celebrity for the night, and to also watch Allie do what she loves and see her work her talent. Allie graduates next month with her bachelor’s degree in film. I have known her for about 10 years, and I am so proud of her! Here is the full video if you’d like to watch it!
Wedding season is in full swing, and to say my life is busy at the moment would be an understatement. Between working weddings, planning weddings, and attending weddings, almost every weekend from now until June I am going to spend celebrating someone else’s love. And I absolutely love it! Look at these two beautiful soon to be brides, that I get to call my good friends!
Weddings and events are definitely one of my biggest passions in life. Probably because romance, and celebrating fall into my list of top five favorite things. (the other 3 would be traveling, dogs, and home decor) I am so happy to finally have found what I am passionate about, and be able to work my two jobs that help me fulfill that passion.
Design & Styling: Forevermore Events
Venues: The Ledges Golf Club & St. George Social Hall
Life tip: find what you’re passionate about and do it every single day.
Along with being busy with friends’ wedding celebrations and work, Derek and I went out of town to Vegas for the night to see one of our favorite bands last week. Mayday Parade has been one of my favorites since I first heard them back in 2007! Derek bought me these concert tickets for Christmas, so we were really excited that the day was finally here! This was the fourth time I’ve seen them live, but it felt like the first time. The night was filled with nostalgia and happy tears. We ran into a few friends from home, and had a lot of fun! (Also shout out to our good friend Garrett for coming with us, and buying our hotel room last minute when our plans fell through!)
Life Tip: Find some good friends who enjoy the same music as you do.
This past weekend, I saw most of the people I love, and I am so happy about it. Whitney and the girls (and Benny) were in town, so I spent most of the free time that I had with them. It was good to have family time, and spend time with my sisters, and of course, see my babies. They are growing up way too fast, and it’s hard not to see them every day like I used to. Averie lost her first tooth, and is learning how to ride her bike. And Kaelyn is out of the toddler stage and turning into a cute little kid. (going on 17)
On Saturday, we celebrated Demi at her bridal shower! I am one of her bridesmaids, so me and the rest of the girls put it all together and hosted it. It turned out way cute, and everyone had a good time! I wish I had taken pictures of the decor and food, but here are a few of my cute friends. (They are more fun to look at anyways.) Only 26 more days until her wedding day!
On Saturday night, we went to Buddy’s house to hangout and spend time with him since we hadn’t seen him for a while. When I say I haven’t seen my friends for a while, I mean a few weeks. It hasn’t been very long, but since we see them so often, a few weeks feels like forever! Alyssa joined us and Demi, Austin, Auston, Kayden, and Maggie eventually came over. Brandon, Maddy, Bryce, Ashlyn, and Nik were also there.
Life tip: Reach out and make time for your friends and family. Some of the best times you’ll have is not because what you were doing, but because who you were with.
On Sunday, we went to breakfast at Bishop’s with Lyssa, and we later went hiking with Auston, Kayden, Brady, Austin, Demi and her whole family. The weather has been so bi polar lately. Some days it will be sunny and a hour later it will be downpouring rain and windy. It is hard to know what to wear, when to wash my car, and if I should make plans to do things outside, until the day of. Yesterday was the perfect day for hiking, so we did just that. We had a lot of fun and Harvey did too!
This month is only going to get busier and more crazy, but since most of the stuff I have planned is fun, and I love my jobs. I am ready for it! I don’t know if any of you have read to this point, and if you have, thank you! I am going to try to make more time out of my crazy schedule to blog more often, because I love to do it. Thank you for stopping by my little personal corner of the internet.
Life tip: Always make time for the things you absolutely love to do.
Onto the next adventure, Wren
