the beginning: our wedding day

Hello and welcome! I’m just beginning this whole blog thing and I’m hoping to share with you this new journey I began (almost) one year ago. You’re welcome to follow along as I write about being a wife, a Christ-follower, a family, a homemaker, and (hopefully someday!) a mom.  I’ll be posting recipes, design and DIY ideas, photographs, insights, and anything else I feel like writing about. But really, it’s just a blog about life. It’s about finding the beauty in the ordinary moments. In the everyday. Because, after all, the ordinary makes up the majority of our lives.

“Enjoy the little things in life, because one day you’ll back and realize they were the big things.”

And so the name Our Beautiful Life (or Our Bella Vida as my friends in Costa Rica would say) seems to fit perfectly. Follow along with me on the journey of little things & the big things…Our Bella Vida.

It seems only appropriate that I start at the very beginning of this journey. One of those not-so-ordinary, big life moments. Our wedding day. This Sunday marks our one (!!!) year anniversary. It was June 28th…an absolutely beautiful and dreamlike summer day. It was the fastest day of my life and I found myself wishing I could just freeze the moments as they flew by. I had been planning my wedding day since elementary school (no joke!) and how amazing it was to finally live it. Our love has only grown since that day one year ago, and I’m looking forward to celebrating many more anniversaries with my favorite man.

Below you’ll find a few snapshots of our day.
