Today I actually did my hair, even though I was working from home all day, and as sad as this sounds – it made me feel glamorous. And that got me thinking…yikes, this is really sad – I should make an effort more often… And that got me thinking about my favorite glamour icons from […]

Alisa and I have been prepping for weeks, and had a successful and enjoyable time at Bridal Fest yesterday. We made some amazing new friends – from other vendors and folks in the biz to new brides – it was a great day filled with many wonderful things. Here are a few photos of our […]

To celebrate the start of my favorite time of year, (and the first official day of fall!) I wanted to share a freebie with everyone – a festive October desktop calendar.

Stormy days are actually some of my most productive: cleaning, cooking, organizing, and most importantly – pining away after sale items from J Crew. I am seriously considering the red trench… And I’m in love with the Anthro dress… and this cardigan from Gap looks pretty snuggly… Ah, the joys of online window shopping.

Looking Ahead

Today marks the end of the last full week of Summer for the Roys – yes, it appears we’ve already progressed into the rainy season up here, but next week Matthew officially starts his Master’s program at Eastern Washington University. To be back in school again is a dream come true for Matthew – we’ve […]
