Thanksgiving Place Cards

November 18, 2018 1 min read

When I first started practicing my hand lettering skills, one of my favorite things was making place cards for dinner parties. I loved to see the way people light up when they see their name beautifully written by hand. It is a simple way to show your guests how loved and important they are to […]

Today we celebrate the feast of Saint Teresa Benedicta of the Cross. She died in the Holocaust and she was pure light in this darkness.  I love this quote by her: “God is there in these moments of rest and can give us in a single instant exactly what we need. Then the rest of […]

Paul asked me to marry him on January 6, 2018 in Joshua Tree, on a pile of boulders overlooking the vast land, just the two of us. It was pure magic. We are getting married on December 8, 2018 (the feast of the Immaculate Conception!). We asked Sarah to come to my neighborhood to capture […]

The Resurrection.

For years now, I’ve been saying that my story is one of resurrection. I have lived days, months, years in darkness and one day the stone was rolled from the tomb and my life was flooded with light and hope.  Something I love about the liturgical calendar is that the cyclical nature helps us reflect […]

It’s no secret that I am (overly) excited about finally getting to be the bride. I have worked with so many amazing couples planning all the tiny details of their weddings. When we begin to work on their paper goods, I always ask lots of questions about their story, their personal styles and how they want […]

Then Sings My Soul.

March 15, 2018 2 min read

A few weeks ago Ike and Emily were singing How Great Thou Art.  Then sings my soul, My Savior God, to Thee, How great Thou art, How great Thou art. Then sings my soul, My Savior God, to Thee, How great Thou art, How great Thou art!  My heart stopped at “then sings my soul.” That’s it. My […]

Taking the Leap.

March 05, 2018 1 min read

This week I’m over at the Grotto Network sharing about when I took the leap to be an entrepreneur.  “While running a business as a young woman can be a challenge and require risk-taking, I found it to be true that “with greater risk is greater reward.” It feels like such a privilege to get […]

I have owned and worn every size from 0 to 16 at some stage in the last 29.5 years.  I remember going into The Limited Too in fifth grade and having already sized out of their clothing. So we would go and shop for my cousin and she would find such cute things. Then I […]

January 16, 2018 1 min read

Before we got engaged (holy moly, I’m engaged!!!) Paul and I wrote an article together for the Grotto Network. As we worked on it and went back and forth discussing our relationship, it was the moment I knew for sure that I wanted to spend the rest of my life with this man. (Don’t let him show […]
