This pregnancy is flying by, and I can’t believe that we are 2/3rds of the way there! After I shared my first trimester update, I got a few requests to share more on my pregnancy as I leave my second trimester, I wanted to share how we’re doing! How’s Mama? I’m feeling pretty good! That […]

Second Trimester Pregnancy Update

When we found out we were expecting, we thought it might be fun to wait for the big reveal until the birth. But, after talking it over, we decided to would be nice to know to help plan/decorate, and to bond further with the baby. And, if I’m being honest, with COVID effecting the pregnancy […]

Baby S’s Big Reveal | It’s a…

After our baby announcement last week, I thought I would put together a little first trimester update/Q&A! I’m not sure how much baby related posts I will do throughout my pregnancy (let me know if you want to see more!), but I wanted to share more about how we’ve been what’s been going on during […]

First Trimester Update | Q&A

The secret is out, and I am so happy to finally announce, I’m pregnant!! I’ve been keeping quiet on the blog/Instagram for a while, mostly because during the first trimester I just felt very blah and not myself. I also can’t keep a secret to save my life so I just decided to hit the […]

A Happy Birthday, Indeed

Social distancing has quickly become the “new normal” for all of us in the past few weeks. And while staying at home isn’t all that bad, not being able to make plans with friends or family, or going out to dinner is definitely starting to wear on the Summerfield house. But, I honestly do take […]

Social Distancing Together

While the holiday season can be a festive and magical time of year, it can also come with many stressors. Shopping for gifts, hosting, cooking, and yes, seeing all of your family and friends around the clock. But how do you split your time during the holidays so you can see everyone, and do everything? […]

Splitting Time Around The Holidays

Can I be real and just say it?… Marriage is hard work! Brian and I have been together for almost 7 years, and we still work at our relationship. It’s a never ending job; something that takes time, understanding, patience, and lots of love. In our first year of marriage, Brian and I have learned […]

What We’ve Learned From Journaling Together

From the moment we met, I knew Brian was meant to be in my life. After our first date, I knew he was the man I was going to marry. And here we are, 7 years later, with our first wedding anniversary just days away! You can read our love story to get all the details […]

Our Wedding Day

Your wedding day can be many things, but the one thing it should always be is a personal experience for you and your spouse. There are so many ways to incorporate personal touches throughout your wedding to make it memorable for you as a couple. They don’t need to be big obvious things, just simple touches […]

How To Personalize Your Wedding

With our anniversary fast approaching, and watching a lot of our friends get married this year, I can’t help but think back to all the things we learned during our wedding planning journey.  It was such a fun (and stressful) time in our lives, and we learned so much along the way. Here are some […]

What I Learned While Wedding Planning

Our first anniversary is coming up, so I am getting pretty nostalgic with wedding memories. I wasn’t writing a lot last summer since we were swamped with wedding planning, so I wanted to share some wedding memories with you this month! First on the list is my bridal shower; thrown by my family and Maid […]

Our Garden Party Bridal Shower

A part of me wishes we went on our honeymoon right away. That we had woken up the morning after our wedding, rushed to the airport and flew to a relaxing vacation away from all the stress of life and wedding planning. But after going through it all, I am so glad we waited. Brian […]

The Benefits of Waiting to Take Your Honeymoon

I have always loved traditions and symbolism, so it’s no surprise that I used both throughout our wedding day. The poem “Something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue,” is something that most brides honor on their wedding day to bring them luck and a happy marriage, so I wanted to share what I had […]

Something Old, Something New

If there is one thing you need to know about me, it’s that I love flowers! So, naturally, I wanted to save my wedding bouquet in some way. I looked into a lot of different ways to preserve bouquets prior to our wedding, but there was one way that I thought was really unique. I found a picture […]

How To Save Your Wedding Bouquet

How Brian and I met isn’t a crazy story. It wasn’t a meet cute from a classic movie, or a even a “funny you should ask” kind of a story… But, I love it because I can remember the exact moment we met. Honestly, I can’t say that about anyone else, not even my best friend. I remember […]

Our Love Story

When planning our wedding, my husband and I really wanted our ceremony to represent our love and be very personal to us. We wanted to have some sort of unity ceremony, but I didn’t want to do something that we have seen before. After a bit of research, I came across an ancient Celtic tradition, […]

Making Handfasting Cords

On our one-week anniversary, I thought I would share a bit about our mini-moon to Kohler, WI! As a wedding present to my new hubby, I bought us one night at The American Club. Instead of a physical gift, I decided that we needed a little time to celebrate our marriage since we aren’t going on our […]

Our Mini-Moon In Kohler

With our wedding coming up in less than 3 months (oh my gosh!), I wanted to share a post on my bridesmaids gifts! It took me a while to decide on what to get for my amazing girls, but I decided to stick with something that they could use on our actual wedding day. Here […]
