We Bought A Home!

The big blog reveal!

We spent February moving into our new home, so that’s why I’ve been on semi-hiatus & that’s why these vlogs are so late!


Best of 2017

It’s true; we all think 2017 was pretty terrible.  When I look back, though, so many amazing things happened in 2017.  We spent the full year engaged (today, we are 100 days away from our wedding!) and laid some pretty exciting seeds for big things in 2018.  I couldn’t be looking forward it more!  Here are my favorite moments of 2017, though.

5. My Bridal Shower (November) | It was amazing an overwhelming to have so many people from all different parts of my life together!  See the photo post here and the vlog here.


loved my Free People dress & flower crown; eating donuts with my MOH

4. Montreal Trip (September) | We road tripped over the border to Canada, and had a carefree weekend.  Watch the vlogs here & here.


blown away by the Chinese garden at the Botanical Gardens; the view from Mont Royal!

3. Diva & Deepan’s Wedding (May) | Matt & I agree, this was hands down the best wedding we’ll ever go to.  Watch the vlogs here & here.


Boston besties ready for our first sangeet; Matt & I dressed up for the wedding!

2. Kelly & Frank’s Wedding & Chicago trip (October) | This only ranks higher because we made a little vacation out of it!  Chicago is a special place to us since it’s the first place we ever traveled together.  Watch the vlogs here & here.


all dressed up for the wedding; a recreation of a photo we took on our first trip at the Bean!

1. Japan Trip! (March/April) | It feels so long ago already, but going to Japan was literally making a lifelong dream come true.  I can’t say enough about this trip and how amazing it was – here‘s the photo post with links to all the vlogs so you can see yourself.

We’re off today to our last wedding of the year — we’ll see you in 2018!

November’s End

It has literally just occurred to me that today is the last day of November.  Where did this month go?!  Things have definitely been hectic, but the least I can do is this one last blog post before the month is over!


[1] We kicked off the month with my bridal shower! [2] We finally got to play the SNES! (in my wedding make-up) [3] We had a big meeting with our wedding venue and things got so real.  Are you sensing a theme here?! [4] I finally got my hands on some of Essie Wild Nude’s including my new favorite, “Exposed.” [5] ULTRA SUN & ULTRA MOON RELEASED! [6] We put our Christmas tree up! [7] I rocked many a moon, including this sweater from J. Crew & gorgeous Alex & Ani necklace. [8] This dachshund creamer arrived in the mail the other day as a shower gift from my friend Kelsey! [9] We tried Tora, a new restaurant in Chinatown, and loved it!

I think things are only going to be more hectic as we wrap up 2017!  What were your favorite November moments?

Wedding Prep & SNES

Weddings & video games are the theme for the year, no?  We also do some foodie things.  (Remember this?)  So, an average weekend.

Weekend vlogs are back on schedule!  I didn’t know if I was going to post this today, because it’s actually a very special day.  We got engaged one year ago today!  Instead of rushing a post for that, I’ll talk more about the engagement so far soon!


Engagement Photos

Today, for Wedding Wednesday, I wanted to share just handful of our engagement photos.  These were taken by G. Riggieri Photography in Scituate, MA.  We had so much fun taking these photos with Gabby and couldn’t be happier with how they came out!  I love her aesthetic and feel like it perfectly matches my own.  I can’t wait to take pictures on our wedding day!

*while it lasts!  gallery should be available for 1 year.

June, Going So Soon?

Alright friends, I think you can tell by the lack of posts lately that June has been a really hectic month.  How is it over already?  I didn’t get any of the posts up I wanted to.  I only read one book!

The good thing is, I took a lot of lovely photos that I’ll share with you now.


[1] If you’ve never walked around the Kendall area of Cambridge, I suggest you do. [2] Cookie Monstah’s red velvet cookies are my jam. [3] We visited Quincy Quarries! [4] We took our engagement photos!  More on this to come.  [5] I fell in love with orange kalanchoe. [6] Our indoor garden grew! [7] #SailBoston did not disappoint!  [8] We went to one of my favorite places: Watch Hill, Rhode Island. [9] Summer blooms were around in full force!

I do have a backlog list of posts and videos that I promise will be coming your way soon!  For now, enjoy your Fourth of July holidays!

Wedding Tasting Vlog

The would have worked better for Wedding Wednesday, but I just had to talk about that Pokémon Direct!  In truth, last weekend was a bit all over the place– we definitely ate a lot, and we got some really cool adventures in as well!
