We’re living in a world where it’s easier to quit on relationships instead of practicing new and exciting ways to strengthen them. Why is that?

In a fast-paced technology driven world I too forget to sometimes stop and smell the roses. Before I got married, Stevie and I decided to participate in a pre-marital program …

Did you ever think you’d see the day when riding in cars with strangers, having dinner delivered to your doorstep, and the best one – finding Mr. Right through a little swipe on a dating app would be an actual thing? I’ve personally always wished that dating could revert back to the innocent old days of sitting in a booth talking about silly things and eating ice cream.

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.
