I think I am officially the last person in the world to jump on the Blue Apron bandwagon. But I finally tried the food delivery service and I loooooved it. You would think that since I’ve gone freelance I would […]

A Little Peek At My Bridal Shower

Date: August 24, 2015 at 12:59 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 22

I don’t know how to write this post without being overly cheesy and sappy and gushy. If you are having an “I’m angry and I want to stay that way” kind of day, I suggest proceeding with caution. My whole […]

The past week or so has not been my favorite. It’s been frustrating dealing with this flare-up over the past month (longer, actually — time flies when you’re in the bathroom). After going to the doctor, all my bloodwork came […]

Throwback Thankful Things Thursday!

Date: July 9, 2015 at 10:53 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 20

Do you remember Thankful Things Thursday?! I swear I’m still a good, honest, grateful person (well, most days). I just don’t do such a good, honest, grateful job of writing about my thankfulness. Today that. all. changes. Today is the […]

My Many Stages of Wedding Planning

Date: June 23, 2015 at 2:24 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 27

I’ve gone through several stages of wedding planning. The first stage, immediately post-engagement, was EXCITEMENT. Everything was love love love and I was happy and glowing (“glowing” = riding a steady champagne buzz for the first month of our engagement) […]
