Trip to Asheville, North Carolina

Hello,

Asheville, North Carolina will always be one of my favorite places to visit. It’s a laid back atmosphere with lots to do. We always have a good time and this trip was no exception. We spent most of Saturday downtown. Here are a few pictures from our visit. My dresses are both from Queen Styles Boutique. The burgundy dress is on sale right now!

Babymoon: Charleston, South Carolina

Hello!

We had our babymoon! It gave us an opportunity to vacation before our baby boy gets here. For our babymoon, we went to Charleston, SC. We always have a good time in Charleston; it has a lot of charm. We didn’t really plan the activities for this trip like we normally do. I have to admit, I’m a planner so it was hard to just go with the flow but it was great seeing where our vacation took us. We ended up eating at restaurants we would’ve never gone to and exploring the beach like we never would’ve if we had planned every detail. Isn’t it funny how we try to have so much control over certain things in life when giving up control is really what’s best? There’s nothing wrong with being a planner. When God made me, He knew exactly what He was doing. Planning allows me to be efficient, productive, and effect. It’s a great quality to have; however, sometimes when we give up control we’ll open the door for new experiences to happen to us. Here are a few photos from our babymoon:

My bathing suit is from Target. It was so comfortable!

Anniversary Trip: Aspen, Colorado 

Hello!

For my anniversary with my husband, we went to Aspen, Colorado. It was breathtaking. The people there were rarely on their phones and spent time reading newspapers. It reminded us that we needed to slow down too. We packed only a carry-on bag so I didn’t have room to bring my camera but I did take some pictures:

Right before our couples massage. It was so relaxing!

We rode a gondola to the top of Aspen Mountain. It was beautiful!

It snowed on and off for two days!

It was a wonderful trip!

What Inspires You?

Hello!

    I just got back from attending a Bachelorette party in Miami and had an awesome time. I had forgotten how much I miss living in an environment that is so rich with culture. In Miami, the culture is in the food, music, and the way people dress, and talk. I started to realize how inspired I felt and wondered when was the last time I felt that inspired. I really missed having that inspiration. Before I started to go down that negative path of thinking, I started to think about the resources I have now that could inspire me. There are so many times we are waiting for a place or someone to inspire us but we have to realize that instead of waiting, we have the power to inspire ourselves. Don’t get me wrong, I think drawing inspiration from people and places is very important but there are so many other things we can be inspired by. It could be the sunset, sunrise, your loved ones or yourself. Together, lets make a habit of taking control over what inspires us. Feel free to tell me something’s that inspire you in the comments.

Anniversary Trip: Nashville, Tennessee

Hello!

I hope you all have been doing well! In my last post I shared with you all that I was heading up to Nashville, TN to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We truly had a blast! I snapped some pictures along our vacation and wanted to share them with you.

We try to stay open to different types of music. We explored the Country Music Hall of Fame Museum and learned a lot!

This wall was right behind our hotel. I thought it was so cute and quirky.

This was one of my favorite outfits for sure. The shirt is from makemechic.com. While I snagged this skirt at Target from The Who What Wear line. The boots are from Aldo. The hat is from Old Navy.


A local artist created this image and I thought it was too pretty not to take a photo.

Charleston Trip

Hello!

    I’ve included in several of my posts how I am gearing up for graduation, which means my portfolio show is coming soon. I’m so excited! I’ve been working intensely to get everything in place and formatted so whenever I get the chance to take a break, I make sure to take advantage of it. One of my high school friends got married in Charleston, SC over the weekend and we made a mini-vacation out of it. I have some pictures below. By the way, most of my excursions are on Snapchat.
