Doing your own engagement photos

     Ian and I recently did our engagement photos, and I decided it would be fun to do it ourselves vs a professional photographer. I know hiring someone would have probably yielded better quality photos but we both are very happy with the photos we got. Reasons I did this: 1.

Island girl

Today is my last full day in paradise AKA Kauai….. I want to cry just thinking about going back to Washington..dull and cold PNW, but all good things do come to an end.

Maxi skirt

On my recent shopping trip I scored this maxi on the sale rack from Charlotte Russe, it was the only maxi in size “small” and I had to get it! Back then when I was in high school, I remember maxi skirts and dresses being the “it”, but none of them would fit me because I was too short. I haven’t changed much in … Read More Maxi skirt
