Everyday Beauty (January ’15 edition)

February 13, 2015

“The wonder of life is often most easily recognizable through habits and routines.” – Anne Lamott These days I’m more inspired by everyday moments with friends and loved ones than I am by grandiose landscapes and exotic places.

December 28, 2013

I’ve struggled over the past few weeks to find the words to describe just how great our wedding in Boracay really was. The words aren’t coming as easily as I would like. We are fortunate and so happy that we invested in professional videographers to capture the day. Here’s a teaser.
