It’s Valentine’s Day and we’re celebrating LOVE today. I’ve almost been married for two years and sometimes I have to pinch myself. I am truly blessed with the best husband.

“Love thrives where love is rooted in commitment. Embrace a deeper sense of responsibility for and accountability to your loved ones, and you’ll be cultivating fertile soil where lasting love can take root. Love requires commitment, and commitment requires abandoning our exit strategy.”

I read that this morning and thought, “Wow so good. Stevie and I have come a long way from our good old college days..”

College days? Well, …

Happy almost Thanksgiving! The hubby and I are currently in Austin, Texas enjoying some much needed quality time with his family.

I’m excited that this year I’ll get to introduce Stevie to some of my family’s traditions! Yep we’re heading to my mom’s house for Thanksgiving in Dallas on Thursday. Say what??? All yumminess aside, if someone asked me 3 years ago if Steve would ever get to experience …

One question you guys often ask (especially lately!) is when Stevie and I will have kids. By the looks of this photo it must be time, right? Not so fast….

Girl Talk (Boys skip this part): When we were in New York last week something felt different. I noticed I was a few days late – but that’s normal when I travel. What I couldn’t understand was why I started spotting. That never happens to me. I somehow convinced myself I was pregnant and told Steve the news. Stevie looked at me like God knows how many times when I’ve …

It’s wedding season (and almost my 1 year anniversary!) so today I felt inspired to share 10 things you didn’t know about my wedding day. For any future brides-to-be out there, sometimes the not-so-perfect things play into that perfect day.

Here’s what you didn’t see in our breathtaking wedding photos. The weather forecast projecting RAIN, the pounds of double-sided tape holding up my dress, a bloated belly, a very sore you-know-what from my Brazilian wax experience, and my personal favorite – a COLD SORE flare up on my upper lip the morning of the wedding. Yep, this totally happened to …

Last night I was laying in bed getting ready to turn out the lights, when I felt it on my heart to tell my husband a few reasons why I love him. I’m convinced that when this happens God is telling me, “Hey Saz, I know you’re busy and all but it’s time to check into reality girl..”  This isn’t the first time I’ve done this or the last time, but it’s been a while since we’ve had a cozy ‘pillow talk’ conversation.

When all of my married friends told us, “After you get married, you’re in for a real …

I can’t believe it was one year ago today when my sweet husband proposed to me. Time flies!!!! It feels like it was only yesterday. I never got the chance to share our engagement story so I knew today would be the perfect day.

Last year I spent time with Stevie’s family in Austin before going home for the holidays. He drove me to Dallas on the 22nd and mentioned he was going to stay with a friend that night before making the drive back to Austin. The next morning I got a call from him saying we should grab …
