I still can’t believe last week was real life. If you follow me on Instagram or social media, you may have seen that I spent the last week traveling in GREECE! My best friend Morgan and I planned this trip back in January. We both were going through a tough season and decided we wanted […]

If you follow me on Instagram, then you probably saw that I just got back from visiting PANAMA earlier this week!!! My best friend Morgan (who I also traveled to Greece and Argentina with in the last two years) has been serving in the Peace Corps in Bocas del Toro for a little over a […]

I feel like this post has been anticipated for so long!!! After over a year of planning and prepping, Caroline and Costa tied the knot last weekend at Quirk Hotel in Richmond, Virginia! I’ve always called Caroline the real-life Barbie doll, and her wedding day was the epitome of vintage Barbie inspiration!! I knew that […]
