Back to Blogging

It has definitely been a bit since I wrote an actual blog POST and not just photos on social media!  A year of wedding planning and the few months following our wedding were incredibly busy and I needed to take the time to focus on the most important things. 

Now that things have somewhat started to settle down, I am ready to get back to working on this blog!  I have a lot of content ideas and will eventually share our wedding with all of you, as well as some advice for brides.

I hope you all have been well and I am excited to be back!

xoxo, Shannon

Sunday Prep for a Great Week

Sundays are one of my favorite days of the week!  I make sure to take time out to prepare myself for a great week ahead.  It makes the week just a little bit smoother and as stress-free as it can be!

Our Proposal Story

I am so excited to finally be able to share the details of one of the most magical days of my life with you!  The holidays and the first few months of 2017 have been quite a whirlwind, sorry for the delay!

I knew something was happening on the morning of December 11th, because Johnny was so emotional.  He told me he had a surprise planned for me, and ended up taking me to get a massage.  That was the last time I saw him until he was proposing that night.  When I walked out of my massage, two of my friends who now live in Wisconsin, were there to pick me up!  I was shocked!  We spent the day together eating brunch, getting my hair done, manis and pedis, and love notes from Johnny at each place we went.

Snowman Christmas Tree

Christmas is my favorite time of year!  I have a traditional green Christmas tree with lights and ornaments, but the past few years I also added a bit smaller snowman tree.  I have gotten so many compliments on it, I wanted to share a quick post so you can make one of your own. It's so simple and so cute!!
