How this year shaped up

How this year shaped up

It feels like five lifetimes have passed since I wrote this post on 2/21/14 discussing my awesome, happy, wonderful agenda for the first half of 2014.  If anyone needed proof that I am not a psychic, there it is in writing, people. But despite the […]

The Agenda for 2014

The Agenda for 2014

I swore to myself I would do a better job documenting this year than I did last because it really hit me late last year just how much Vince and I rely on this blog to remember the details of our lives. Especially as we […]

The New Year’s Eve I had no reason to forget to blog about

The New Year’s Eve I had no reason to forget to blog about

I have NO idea why I forgot to document New Year’s Eve 2013 – 2014, because it was bad. freakin’. ass. As with all New Year’s Eves, there’s an immense amount of pressure to make it epic and throw down and blah blah blah. You’d […]

Vince’s Store Bought Birfday

I can’t believe I’m writing about this well over a month after the fact, but what can I say? Life. It’s good right now. 🙂 This year was Vince’s 35th birthday – 35th!!! I met Vince when he was 25 and every year on January […]

Oops…. Excuses and an Update

Well, I had ever intention of blogging every day the month of November and… yeah that didn’t happen. In fact, it looks like I’m not going to make much out of December either. So what the hell happened? A new job. A renewed focus on […]

Epic Honeymoon ReCap – Episode Seven: Park Guell

Epic Honeymoon ReCap – Episode Seven: Park Guell

Unlike Sorrento, Rome, Florence, or Palma Majorca, when Vince and I got to Barcelona we were there to stay for awhile. Which meant I bought multiple travel guides and even a pocket English-Spanish book thingy that I didn’t use once. Pro Tip: Rick Steve’s guide […]

Nick and Ashley’s St. Augustine Wedding!

Nick and Ashley’s St. Augustine Wedding!

Friday, November 1st Vince and I enjoyed a lovely summer fall evening in St. Augustine, FL for Nick and Ashley’s wedding! First, some back-story. Vince went to high school with Nick in Inverness and they reconnected a couple of years ago when they realized they were […]

Epic Honeymoon ReCap – Episode Six: Romantic Haven in Barcelona

Epic Honeymoon ReCap – Episode Six: Romantic Haven in Barcelona

So, I won’t lie. There was an adjustment period after staying in the Deluxe Owner’s Suite on the Epic and having a butler who left us awesome little gourmet snacks and champagne. That adjustment happened in a private apartment we rented in Barcelona on Carrer del […]

Epic Honeymoon ReCap – Episode Five: Relaxing in Palma Majorca

Epic Honeymoon ReCap – Episode Five: Relaxing in Palma Majorca

Palma Majorca was our last stop on the cruise and all I knew about the place was that it was in Spain and it’s where gorgeous pearls came from. So after walking for 8 hours in Pompeii, running all over Rome, and hiking from the […]
