Late Night Cravings

Darlings,
Last night was one of those nights. 
After spending what felt like the whole day doing homework and online quizzes I decided to make an emergency run to the grocery store. After all, there is nothing Dove chocolate ice-cream bars cannot fix. So there I was, speed walking like a maniac in my sweats and v-neck tee (definitely my finest look) looking for the ice cream isle.  Good thing the place was pretty deserted.
Mission Accomplished!

Wedding Wednesday: Provence, France

Darlings, 
It's that time of the week again and this time we are going to 
Provence, France... can it get any more romantic than that? I think not.
One and Only Paris Photography definitely did a breathtaking job 
capturing each and every gorgeous moment.

Nothing Like an Amish Cinnamon Roll...

Darlings,
A couple of days ago my family and I decided to visit our nearest Amish community 
for some delicious and mouthwatering treats at a home based bakery. 
Let's just say that because of their exquisiteness we have made it a tradition 
to go there at least once a year.
The people are so incredibly friendly and so happy with the simple things in life 
that I seriously almost considered giving that lifestyle a try for a couple months. 
Now, I wish I could show you in more than four pictures how
 amazing these trips always turn out to be but the community prefers 
privacy in the picture-taking aspect (Disclaimer: Permission was asked for that first picture)
If you have the chance to visit an Amish community, do it. 
You'll love it.

Feliz Dia de los Padres! {Happy Father's Day}

(Ferry rides would scare me to death but my dad was always there making sure I felt safe)
Papi,
Today I want to take the time to tell you, once again, how much you mean to me.
Ever since I was a little girl you've always been the one I run to. 
You have made me laugh, encouraged me, and inspired me for twenty-one years
and I ask God that you continue to do so for at least a hundred more.
You always tell me how proud you are of me, 
but today is my turn to tell you how very proud I am of you. 
You are an amazing person and an even more amazing father.
Thank you for always being there for me and in so many innumerable ways.
Te amo.

Ride Away

Darlings,
There is something very relaxing about riding a bike on a gorgeous summer day. Since today  was absolutely beautiful my mom, sisters, and I decided to do just that. It was absolutely lovely AND we got to see the cuuuutest little skunks (don't worry, we still smell good).
