Rule #1 of blogging……..BLOG!

Yeah I’m pretty sure I’ve failed miserably with that lately.  It’s clearly no surprise that I haven’t posted in oh say….5 MONTHS (eeeek), but no worries I’m definitely not deceased (yes I actually received emails asking  me this….) nor have I given up with blogging completely.  As a lot of you already know, I recently got engaged and as most of the women reading this can relate, I became utterly obsessed with every single detail got a little caught up in the planning process.  Sooo with that said, I decided to take a little break and just enjoy everything as well as take some time for myself.  I definitely did not anticipate taking an entire 5 month hiatus, but I guess I had a little TOO much fun.  Now it’s time to dive back into what I love most and that is cooking and creating recipes!!

I’ve actually been working all week on trying out some new summer recipes, especially since we recently purchased a brand new grill, so I have lots to share with you before fall approaches!!  But before I share with you all that deliciousness, I just have to show you a little sneak peek of our gorgeous engagement shoot that took place in Charlottesville last month.  Our photographer Jodi Miller and her hubby Kurt are absolutely amazing to work with and ladies getting married I highly recommend hiring a husband and wife couple!!  They make the whole shoot so comfortable and even show you how to pose because let’s face it, I’ve never been a model nor will I ever BE one.  I must say though, I can take a pretty sweet #selfie from time to time.

I’m really looking forward to sharing the rest of these photos with you once they are received!
