My boss John grows the most wonderful flowers, especially irises, 
at his darling little cottage in town. 
I hope to hone my own green thumb up to his standards one day.
In fact, in the process of redoing my house, I've started planting as well~

Andy and I adventured with half of our groomsmen to book our wedding venue,
and to rough it around Turkey Run afterwards. 
It was quite a successful day, and I can't help but be ecstatic for more wedding planning.

The iron in the rock bluffs mixed with the moss and it made my heart stop.
So beautiful.

Homecoming

I've found myself traveling to visit loved ones in different towns with newfound free time. Which I suppose means I still have no free time -.- Here are a few snaps from when I got to visit Lauren, my twin-y. She came all the way from Austin, Texas. It was full of ice cream and cats. ~

Turkish Coffee

Turkish coffee, coffee, party,

My friend Santana is a cultured fellow, and is always finding new ways to share it with others. These are a few pictures taken from our Turkish coffee day. It may not be my favorite cup of coffee, but it certainly was a treat!

Wes Anderson Wedding Announcement- MirAndy





I finally decided to post our Wes Anderson inspired wedding announcement video.
This was inspired by a similar video I saw years ago.

Andy and I have many wonderful memories made of Wes Anderson movie dates.
He has always been a big inspiration to the both of us.
I cannot wait to marry this guy. Hopefully we won't have Wes Anderson
mishaps and hijinks on our way to the altar

Goodbye EIU

I graduate tomorrow morning, and I'm having a flood of emotions running through me. Is this it? Have the best years of my life come and gone so quickly? I still don't know how to properly do my taxes.  Is there more for me after this? Where do I go from here?

It all came a went so fast. I can say that in my young life, these ARE the best years I have seen, so far. I still have many years to make new friends in other places. I still have things yet to learn that this campus could not teach me. I can however say, that my days here were well worth the student loans I will be paying off for years to come. You won't be soon forgotten EIU~

Josh Doniek: A Retrospective

Josh is a friend who holds a very special place in my heart. He will be sharing his wonderful company at our wedding, and at many other shin-digs for years to come. He really is a special soul.

As far as his art goes, you can clearly see his bright personality shine through, and his show was truly breathtaking. I could not be more proud of him. I even went home with one of the pieces!

Whitington Wedding

I was happily the maid of honor in my friends Krista and Cory's wedding. It absolutely lovely, and I had a hoot on the dance floor. I could not be happier for them. They are so clearly in love.
I'm new to the world of curls. I felt self concious most of the night.
It's pretty hard to sit in a wedding dress.
