We are safely two-thirds into our summer, and I must admit, I was purposefully remaining as un-scheduled as possible. We (royal we...

A couple of weeks ago, my husband and I celebrated five years of marriage. We had an awesome night! It included some live music, some drinks, awesome food, and a couple of fun gifts.
