    Date Night In Box: December Faith Box

    This month’s Date Night In Box was a winter wonderland theme! It was filled with so much fun for our evening in, and I loved that it wasn’t just Christmas themed! With all the craziness of the holidays, it was so nice to just sit down together and reconnect for a couple of hours. This month’s box was the perfect way to do just that. First, I made these adorable treats before he got home. He’s not one to spend time in the kitchen, so I just did them so they were ready for our date night after the kiddos went to bed. They were so cute and adorable and…

This is the second month we’ve tried the Faith in Box, and…

    It’s the Little Things

    The other day my husband came home and surprised me. It wasn’t anything crazy or big, and it literally was free. BUT HE THOUGHT OF ME … and it was very evident that he had. You see he brought home a book from me. He had gone to the local radio station to do an ad for work that day. They had a table of books they were giving away for free. He knows I love reading, and took the time to look for one he thought I might like. My sweet hubby came home and I quote said, “So, I got you something, but I don’t know if you’ll…

    The Look of Love

    I’m not sure if you all know that I photograph weddings occasionally (Life by Charley Danielle). I actually photograph families and babies as well, but there’s something about weddings that make them my favorite to photograph. Maybe it’s because I like capturing such a special day and letting a couple relive their moments through the story my photos tell. It could also be that they make me think of my own wedding day or that I’m a helpless romantic. Regardless, they are my favorite! It’s such a beautiful thing to see, the look of love between two people… and sometimes it’s more evident than others. This past July I photographed…

    Radiate Positivity

    Radiate positivity … emit optimism… be kind. I LOVE this y’all! I’m a pretty positive person … seriously you can ask anyone that knows me. I generally have a smile on my face, always say hi to people (even those I don’t know), and try to see the good in all situations. I’m the kind of person who likes to hold the door for strangers, who allows traffic to move into my lane even when it’s crazy, and who has bought items for people in need because it breaks my heart. I like to make others smile; I guess I have quite a bit of empathy for others around me.…

    My hubby and I are celebrating 9 years of marriage today .. almost a total of 14 years! We are 3 years short of spending half of our lives together! Y’all that’s crazy to think !! We’ve owned two houses, had two beautiful girls, supported each other in job changes (so thankful for my hubby’s job now and the fact that I’m able to stay home with our girls), lost family members, and dealt with some obstacles along the way. We have had countless adventures and have gotten to experience life together. We were babies starting our relationship … and in the years we’ve grown together. Our vows we said…

    Date Nights for Any Budget!

    Because I love planning (and sharing! I swear in another life I was a travel agent or an event planner!) I decided to compile a fun list of dates to get you inspired to have a good time with your sweetheart! I gave a variety; it doesn’t have to be super extravagant. You could write them down and put them in jar, pull one out randomly to decide the week of, or you could pre plan them. I’ve also picked three ideas and had my hubby pick the one he wanted to do; that way he’s kinda sorta included in the planning process. πŸ™‚ Pricey dates: -Get dolled up and…
