Welcome to my blog! I hope you can find a home within these pages. If you're a hot-mess than you're in the right place.



Lately, I've been getting really sentimental listening to love songs and imaging our wedding day. So, this playlist is all the feels.

When my fiancé (boyfriend at the time) first started dating we were long distance. He traveled the country and I stayed in Wisconsin. Some of the songs on this playlist are the same songs I listened to while he was away. 

Its crazy to see how our love has grown and transformed. Our love had started shy and exciting. Our love had hurt sometimes from being apart so much. Our was so sweet, our love was stretched. Now, it has felt like I've loved Sam for all of my life. To think -- I will spend the majority of my life with Sam than I did without him. And man I am so glad for that!

But, love isn't always found in a person. Maybe you are just in love with life right now. I believe the same fuzzies that you get thinking of someone, you can get thinking of how blessed you are to live life. 

I hope you love this playlist!
