Our Engagement Pictures

I'm so happy to share our engagement photos! Roehl and I were nervous at first on the day of our shoot, but our amazing photographer made us feel comfortable after only a few minutes...and it made it that much easier to have fun! 

All photos were taken by the awesome Emily of Emily Takes Photos

...and they lived happily ever after

California Dreaming

I got to join Roehl's family last weekend for a good old fashioned road trip to San Diego. I'm so lucky to be marrying into such an amazing family whom I love so much. :)

We only had a couple days, so we maximized our time by visiting some popular local haunts like Old Town, Little Italy, and Pacific Beach. It was such a wonderful breezy & dreamy weekend!

Roehl's sister Jen even came all the way from Florida! Sibling love :)

We didn't get a chance to eat tacos el gordo, but we did indulge in some delish Mexican-style shrimp and lobster in Old Town...yummy food was everywhere!

Of course, I have to post a zillion photos of this little guy!

I got caught up trying to capture all the funky logos throughout Little Italy!

While some people might find Old Town to be cliche and corny, I can't get enough of it! I feel like I'm in another world whenever I'm lucky enough to visit.

I had such a fabulous time, and I was blessed to come home with a ton of family memories I'll cherish for the rest of my life.
