Positively Selfie

Everyone is self-conscious. 
You can deny it all you want, but deep down you know it's true. 
And I'm part of the everyone.

One of my goals this year is to be positive. And I've been doing well with it, except when it comes to me.
I've never thought I was a pretty person until Zach came along. I've never thought I was ugly, but just average.
I still don't believe I'm as pretty as he says I am, but I'm working on it. And having Snapchat is helping.
Since I take a bunch of selfies on Snapchat, I figured I would start taking some and posting them on Instagram.
Bedtime selfie
Feeling good selfie
Curly hair don't care selfie
Sunday selfie
My hope by posting more selfies is that I'll be more comfortable in my own skin and feel more positively about myself.

Driving to Grandma's

Who knew that a trip to my grandma's yesterday would prompt a blog post?
Well it did.

My grandma lives 30 minutes inside the Ohio border from Richmond, IN, so the drive to her house is all country roads.
With yesterday being a gorgeous day, like every other day this week, I had beautiful views the whole way to her house. As I was stopped at a stop sign I snapped these pictures with my phone.
Pretty, right?
I love driving to her house.
Then you get to her town and it is the cutest town.
Up until about 10 years ago, it literally was a one stoplight town. Now it's a 2 stoplight town.
And a few months ago, the county fairgrounds committee voted to move the Montgomery County fairgrounds to just outside her town. But that's beside the point.

As I was leaving my grandma's to meet my friends for coffee, this song came on the radio and I thought it was perfect!

Blate Night

If you're not living in Cincinnati (or Dayton, in my case) you're missing out. 
Tuesday night I got to meet a bunch of wonderful ladies and get to know the girls behind their blogs. 
Thanks Sarah for the photo!
We had Mexican and of course I couldn't go without getting a margarita!

I was too busy chatting away I didn't get hardly any photos but I did snap this goofy one with Heather!

You can see more photos from Erin, Heather, and Jax, or search #cincyblate on Instagram!

I had the best time! If you get a chance to meet a fellow blogger or bloggers DO IT!! It's so much fun!

Sneak Peek

So I've been a slacker at blogging the last week, but it's okay! Great things have been keeping me busy and I can't wait to tell you about it! But until I can, here's this:

Zach and I have been married for a month today!! 
ONE month! It feels like just last week we were in our honeymoon! Here's a sneak peek of our wedding photos from our photographer!

 (So they might be cropped screen shots because I haven't had time to put the photos in my computer yet. Sorry guys!)

New Family Member

I was going to write a crappy post about what I didn't like about this weekend, or specifically Friday, but then Saturday really turned my weekend around. 

Everyone, meet Aurora!
She's a year old and her coloring is called "torbie".
I love her tail. 
It looks like a raccoon's tail and it's very fluffy.

Sebastian isn't a big fan of her right now, but they did share this moment together. 
Sebastian was watching her explore and then the squirrel came onto our balcony and both cats ran to the window to watch him. The squirrel was drinking standing water on our pool floatie and the kitties about ran into the door. 
While we were relaxing she crawled onto my lap and laid down. I LOVE that she's a lap kitty!
She's just so cute!!
