I am so excited for this post because today marks one year as a married woman to my wonderful husband, Cody. Today, I wanted to show more photos from our wedding day – it’s so fun to look through them and kind of relive the day. (thank you to the wonderful Limelife Photography team for taking these photos so we can remember all of the details forever).
Cody – it has been an amazing one year being married to you and 5 years (almost 6) of being together! Life is fun and always an adventure with you and I am so happy Stillwater, Oklahoma brought us together. :) Here’s to many years and memories to come!
Cody and I are in Oklahoma for a long weekend of visiting our families and friends as well as celebrating our 1 year wedding anniversary (tomorrow) at our alma mater’s homecoming game! Oklahoma State University is where we met so it means a lot to be able to celebrate surrounded by the people we love!
I quickly wanted to share that I am featured on one of my favorite bloggers, Lee of Style Bee’s blog on a blog tour! Check it out :)
Recently I was introduced to Picture it on Canvas, a custom printing service that hand prints your photos onto canvas, slate, metal, tote bags, to name a few. PIOC was kind enough to send me an 8×10 canvas and because Cody and I are just a few days away from hitting our one year anniversary (CRAZYYYY!), I decided to choose a photo from our wedding day by Limelife Photography.
One thing I love about PIOC is you can also log on to your instagram account and select photos from your feed to get printed! Another thing I love is how quickly the canvas shipped to me. With project deadlines, it’s so good to know I can place an order and the product will arrive in a timely manner. Always, always a bonus. ;)
How awesome would it be to create a gallery wall with your favorite instagram photos?? What a dream.
Oh and by the way – if you sign up for Picture it On Canvas’ newsletter and you will receive coupon codes and special offers!

Bostonians! What’s that I hear? You have no plans for Thursday evening?? Well, you are in luck because my friend, Kathryn of Bash Studio, is putting together an exciting soiree celebrating Neatly Nested for their one year anniversary! Unfortunately I am unable to attend as I will be traveling to Oklahoma, but I wanted to extend an event to my Boston readers. It sounds like such a fun night! Also, I know the RSVP date says 10/20 but feel free to send Kathryn an email by the end of tomorrow (10/22) if you would like to attend! :)

The entire month of October is dedicated to breast cancer awareness – including educational campaigns and numerous events to raise funds for research to fight and hopefully cure this terrible disease. I have touched on this subject a little on here before but I want to open up again about a personal story of mine. On November 4th, 2004 my mom passed away after fighting a very short and difficult battle of stage 4 breast cancer. Being that I was a sophomore in high school at the time, it felt like there couldn’t have been a worse time to lose her (not that there is ever a good time to lose your mom). And as I sit here writing this with tears filling my eyes, I think about all of the events in my life she wasn’t apart of (getting my driver’s license, prom, high school and college graduation, my engagement, my wedding and eventually my kids) because of this awful thing called cancer.
Even though I cannot put into words how much I miss her, I am certain she is the very reason I am where I am today. The reason this blog exists. The reason for my motivation. The reason I smile too much. The reason for my “always look on the bright side” rule. The reason for my strength.
Anyway… I want to encourage you all to schedule your next mammogram and call your moms….like right now. :)
Now, to end this personal post with something light – I have gathered a few pink decor/furniture pieces along with some pink-inspired interiors.
