Our wedding photos have arrived! I know what you’re thinking right now. You’ve seen our wedding photos (here and here and here and here and here). Well, our photographers sent us our high res photos, which means I get to spend the weekend zooming in on all those beautiful moments that now seem so far away. Also, I plan to spend the next few days convincing my new husband that we need a life-size version of us on a canvas. I mean, it’s on a canvas so it’s art. Clearly. Confession: our high res photos arrived almost exactly one month ago in the most adorable little box with a cute little wooden USB with our names carved in it but I’m a ditz and didn’t even realize. Dope. Yay for Christmas all over again! Happy weekend! xoxo

Spoiler alert: spillage of emotion below.
thank you to each and every one of you.
i started this blog a year and a half ago as a creative distraction from work and life. what it has become is something so much more. it’s a place for me to explore and grow — from new recipes to fun outfits — and to connect with friends, new and old. i love getting comments from readers, adding amazing new blogs to my own reading list and learning something new about myself and all of you with every post. i feel so lucky and so loved.
so thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for playing along. happy thanksgiving!
p.s. this photo was used for our wedding thank yous. cute huh? thanks again to John and Sue Fan, of Blue Koi Studios, for the incredible wedding memories and for being so lovely.
we adored the teterías (Moorish tea houses) in Granada’s Albaicin
Okay. I could seriously post about Spain for the next two weeks. I can’t stop looking through our photos and reminiscing on all the sweet moments we shared. But hey, there’s more life to be lived. So as one last post from our honeymoon, I’ve pulled together a few groups of photos from some of my favorite moments in Spain. I hope you’ve enjoyed traveling with us!
the gardens of the Alcazaba palace, Seville (this is where i got lost in the maze that reminded me of the Red Queen’s castle!)
it’s safe to say i’m not exactly religious, but somehow we managed to visit every single church in Spain. the architecture inside La Mezquita Catedral de Córdoba was stunning and so worth a visit.
Zaragoza was our second city and we wanted to stay forever
i couldn’t go through all these Spain posts without showing you a flamenco photo. as someone who spent nearly 15 years in lyrical sandals and leos, the flamenco dancing blew me away. never before have i seen such incredible footwork (no really, their feet were moving so quickly it was a blur!). i couldn’t keep the smile off my face as we enjoyed an hour of pure magic. if you’re visiting Spain, make a flamenco show a must-see.
thanks for following along! xoxo
I can’t believe summer is over already. I say that nearly every year, but this summer I really really mean it. I went from a Ms. to a Mrs., showered a friend with baby love, spent far too few weekends down the shore, shopped A.LOT. and gained an adorable baby nephew. Let’s take a look back at some of summer’s sweetest moments.

neon and black strappy love

welcoming my 30s with a little sparkle
rekindling with an old flame
bright bright bright polish everywhere

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for letting me share our wedding day with you throughout this past week. I’ve loved reliving all the special moments that made our day so wonderful. They say your wedding day flies by and it’s impossible to remember all the little details. It’s so true. But we found ourselves two amazing photographers who captured every cherished second. Thanks to our friends and family and to all of you for all the love this week. I hope you enjoy a few final favorites. Cheers!
i never told you what the guys and girls wore: these handsome men bought black Calvin Klein suits and slim ties … except that sore thumb back there who apologized in his best man speech for wearing more white than me.
a kiss for my Anya.
just look at those cheeks! her momma (Chris’ sister on the left) made that adorable headband.
they swear they’re 2.5 years apart, but i think my MIL needs to come clean … they must be twins!
the girls wore charcoal silk chiffon Amsale dresses. since they range in height from 4’9″ to 5’9″ and my two matrons of honor are pregnant, i let them choose their own styles and pale pink shoes. funny how they all chose similar dresses and hair. as a gift, i bought them Tejani bangles in various styles.
he’s so excited his feet aren’t even touching the ground! i didn’t get a chance to tell you how nervous i was right before the ceremony. we’re talking full-blown panic attack. sitting on the altar i could hear this cute little nephew of ours giggling and begging to “sit with Risa!” bless that little monster because he scared away my tears and those giggles soothed my nerves.
my little baby sister (who happens to be the tallest of us all) could not for the life of her get my shoes on.
his sister has a baby girl, my sister has a little man (and baby boy on the way) … and we have the cutest niece and nephew on the planet.
the end … or perhaps it’s just the beginning.
thank you. xx
