Rachel and Miguel are not strangers to waiting. You see, Miguel is from the Netherlands, and Rachel grew up here in the D.C. area. When they fell in love online, they had to wait to finally meet each other. Then began years of waiting between trans-Atlantic visits. And a few years ago, Rachel waited in […]

From the first phone call I had with Brooke, I knew this day would be so so special. We connected easily, especially about losing family members too young and I knew her, and her future husband, were going to be an incredible couple.

Sometimes, things work out exactly how they were meant to. Last year when our honeymoon to Hawaii was canceled, along with our wedding and my bachelorette, I was devastated. This year when we rebooked the trip, I was hesitant to get excited but as it got closer and closer I realized our dream of going to Hawaii was coming true! We got to celebrate our marriage, our first anniversary, and our delayed wedding reception in the most beautiful place on earth.

After thinking about it for a while I realized it would be a great fit for me to have something to workout at home. Before purchasing the bike, I tried out a few of the Peleton Digital classes and really loved them.

Pretty much everything in 2020 was unusual and Christmas was no different. It was our first Married Christmas and I had dreams of a perfect two days of wrapping presents, holiday movies, hot cocoa, and lots and lots of relaxing. But then, our basement flooded right as we left for Christmas Eve dinner. While it […]

Because 2020 has been so crazy, I feel like I’ve forgotten to celebrate all our first memories as a married couple. Much of our year has been focused on moving into, maintaining, and fixing up our new house together which has definitely felt like one big “first” in many ways but other than that I […]
