Vendor Spotlight: A Lark Creation

The Confession That Started it All “He’s kinda cute!” Those three words, which should’ve been a secret, started something big and even led to a Charlotte engagement. They were out with friends, hanging out, and having a good time. Neither of them was looking for a relationship, but, when something is just right, what else […]

Mama Knows Best A love story can start at any time. The beginning of this particular love story started as a typical spring day. Michelle got ready and went to work at the office where she’s a nurse.

2019: Goals, Dreams, and Plans

A New Year! I’m always a little torn about how I really feel about this time of year. For one thing, I love change and think it’s a huge part of what makes life fun. But I also adore Christmas and am always a little sad to see that season end. Goal-setting and new beginnings are some […]

2018: A Year in Review

About a month ago, we got to take a family vacation to visit friends in Nashville, Tennessee, family in Louisville, Kentucky, and then on to Indiana for some family time just the four of us. We had so much fun, and I described part one a couple of weeks ago and just realized that I’d […]

Roadtrip: Tennessee, Kentucky, and Indiana Vacation Pt. 2

Tears welled up in her eyes and threatened to spill down her face as she stood listening to the words her almost-husband was saying. As he read the vows he’d written himself he described his past: the dark days he’d had to face alone and the light that came into his life when he met […]
