Today marks Patrick and I’s 8 Year Anniversary. EIGHT YEARS!! I can’t even begin to grasp how long that truly is, but I honestly can’t remember what life was before Patrick walked into my life. Divine timing brought us together at the exact moment we needed each other most, and for the last 8 years I have fallen more and more in love with him every single day. It is true that when you know, you know. I’ve known for a great deal of time that Patrick is my person. It is clear in the way we treat each other, the way we stand beside each other and the way we root each other on in everything we do. Our relationship allows us to be fearlessly ambitious, while keeping things in perspective. As long as we have each other, we can get through and tackle just about anything that comes our way. How incredibly comforting is that? Patrick is my greatest blessing in life and I feel so fortunate to have been able to spend the last 8 years of my life with him and look forward to a million more.
Jumped in the car for an end of Summer road trip with Hammitt! I had so much fun sharing some of my favorite stops when venturing up to wine country. I always, always stop at the Sonoma Valley Fruit Stand when going to or coming from wine tastings!! This little fruit stand gives me all the feels and is filled with the freshest fruit to grab for the ride!
This is perhaps one of my most requested blog posts – my must-have, ride-or-die, hero products. Each one of the products listed in this master list is a product I couldn’t see myself living without. Some of the items are even included in the Sephora Beauty Insider Appreciation Event that ends today (ROUGE: 20% off wth code YESROUGE, VIB: 15% off with code YESVIB, Sephora Beauty Insider Members: 10% off with code YES INSIDER). The items aren’t listed in any specific order and are favorites for my specific beauty needs! This is in no way sponsored or in collaboration with any of these brands.
The best part about being engaged?! There is always a reason to celebrate!! Patrick and I got engaged this Summer and we are starting to think about all of the events surrounding our wedding. By now, you know that my go-to wine is Chloe Wine Collection. Their Prosecco is an all-time favorite and my choice for all celebrations! I know that so many of you guys are recently engaged as well, so I thought it would be fun to share a quick and easy engagement brunch you can throw this Summer! Plus, it is a great excuse to buy a cute new white dress and drink Chloe Wine Prosecco with friends. It’s a win-win!
