Four years later and I will always remember this moment.


Four years later and I get all teary eyed when I look at our wedding photos and think of that perfect day.

Four years later and we still manage to crack each other up.

Four years later and I’m still obsessed with all things wedding, can we do it again?

Four years later and I always love our random chats before bed.

Four years later and you’re always my favorite dance partner.

I’m so excited for the next four months, four years, forty years. I’m excited for it all and I’m so glad to have you by my side for this never ending amazing adventure.

Happy 4th Anniversary Matt, I love who a whole lot more every single day.




/end the schmoopfest.


happy thursday!

Off & Away.

by katelin on August 26, 2014

This weekend was like a trip down memory lane. Memories of my childhood, of my college years and family reminscing.

Friday: Worked from home, organized things, worked out, read some and had a generally delightful afternoon. The evening was spent with my in-laws watching bad movies, chatting about babies (my sister-in-law is due any day) and eating take out. Twas just the kind of end of the week evening we needed.

Saturday:  My productivity streak continued. I organized around our apartment and made my way to my parents’ house to help my little brother pack his things for college. It was seriously the most surreal experience helping him organize his things into two big bags (one of which was the suitcases I used when I left for college twelve years ago) and help him sort things and donate others, especially since it was all in my old bedroom. It was some quality bonding time and I’m just so excited for the kid and can’t believe moving day is almost here.

After the day o’ packing I came home to a sick husband so our evening was quite low key. We ate grilled cheeses and watched too much TV. Rocking Saturday night really.

Sunday: A morning of cleaning and reading and relaxing and Sons of Anarchy watching (yes I’m rewatching that wonderful series).

The evening was spent with family and wishing my brother farewell officially. Luckily my emotions were kept in check and instead I just ate all the tasty things in sight. Eventually Matt and I said our goodbyes

College bound!

The rest of the evening was spent with my nose in a book and it was just dang delightful. A perfect end to a memorable wedding.


happy tuesday!

TweetWednesday night my Twitter feed was flooded with stories of Ferguson. I, admittedly, had no idea what was going on.
