Insecurities + Confidence

My fellow blogging friend Brooke Kupcho  (in my hair post a few weeks back) had the great, but challenging, idea of teaming up to create a post for our readers about insecurities.  She generated some real/hard questions, and myself and a few other  bloggers are sharing our answers over on her blog www.brookekupcho.com. Fun fact! Brooke and her husband are from the midwest, and the are co-founders of an amazingly beautiful magazine…

Pumpkin Mexican Pizza

One of my most request meals when I would come home from college was what my mom called Mexican Pizza.  You can make this delicious dish in so many different ways… but basically, it’s pizza made from cornbread, and stuffed/topped with Mexican goodness! Although being in LA has not caused me to miss Oregon’s relentless rain, I do miss the foods that it produces. Especially during harvest season.  Pumpkins, squash, pears, apples,…

Teaming up to talk about HAIR

From frizzy to silky locks and bedhead to viva la glam, this blog post will address all things hair.  I’ve been getting a lot of questions about my hair routine/products that I use, but I thought it would be more insightful an impact full to address these questions with a collaborative response. So I decided to reach out to a couple of my curly-haired blogging friendlies.  These women understand the…

Eva’s By Reclamation

Lauren Graebner. My college roommate, teammate, co-captain, co-creative, cooking bud, adventurer, and best friend. This woman has more creative juices flowing through her than she knows what to do with.  She won pretty much every award for her designs in the Oregon State fashion shows.  Lauren, and my other roommate, bridesmaid, and best friend – Thea – have a patent on one of their designs!   As I started dreaming about the floral,…

Wedding Q & A

What were you thinking when you woke up on your wedding day? It felt similar to waking up on race day, but 100 times more.  I was excited beyond measure but so at peace at the same time.  I went for a prayer walk alone on the morning of our wedding.  I walked down to the train bridge (where Jer proposed to me) and I took a video of my…

Little Flock Designs

Many of my wedding guests and blog readers have inquired about the signs that the groomsmen carried down the aisle during my wedding ceremony.  Well here is the answer! For the record, this was by far my favorite wedding idea….   In the beginning, when the wedding planning, preparing, and pondering had just begun, I was full of an “Auj Poj” of ideas. Look up the definition of the word “bricolage.” It perfectly…

My vows in full

Babe, As I stand here about to take your hand for life, I am reminded of the poem you wrote me once in a letter during our 3 years of long distance.  It was a short and simple note that read “Like a butterfly to the cage, stomach flies to the emotional rage.” You still give my stomach butterflies when I see you. whether its for the first time in…

LArchives

trip to LA video Wednesday October 8th My new husband and I set off down the 5 in a 14 foot U-Hual truck packed to the brim with Crate and Barrel boxes, our grand parents furniture, and Jeremy’s motercycle nicely tucked in and covered with quilts to prevent my parents from noticing (unsuccessful).  Around 5 p.m. after a tearful and prayerful goodbye with our parents, we began the Journey of…

The story of how I got engaged

Well wow. What a day… I new this day was coming (probably for the last 3 years or so… but when it finally came it seemed surreal. Today I said YES. It was the most important yes of my life, aside from when I say yes again in the synonymous words, “I do.” I said yes to marrying the boy by the fire that captivated my heart and stirred my…
