Atlanta, Wedding

Our First Dance: International Dance Studios

Before the wedding, Stephen and I took dance lessons. It started out like Bambi first learning to walk with a lot of stepping on each other’s toes, running into walls, and stopping every two seconds because we kept messing up. For three months, we had weekly date night to step up our skills and have a first dance that did not resemble two middle schoolers slow dancing to “This I Promise You.” *Disclaimer – we ...

How to Save Money in 2017

One of my big goals for 2017 is to save money. I’ll be totally honest, it isn’t super cheap to live inside the city of Atlanta.

2017 Goals

Every blogger needs two things near the end of the year, a yearly recap post and goals for the next year. I did my recap yesterday, so guess what today is? I say it every year, but I really want to better myself this year. I always start energized and ready to take everything head-on, but then by Jan. 20 I’m totally burned out.  My resolution most years is to lose weight. I did that in 2016, so I’m not adding it to my list, but I ...
