When your cat is more photogenic than you

Life

Ever experienced envy at the fact that no matter how you photograph your pet, no matter what absolutely ridiculous pose they are in, they still manage to look cuter than you? If so, I feel you. I delete basically every selfie, and then turn around and take 100+ photos of my flawless feline child. I can put on makeup, find perfect lighting, try and fix my hair, and take a…

Engagement Photos Show We are Hipsters

Life

Against Alex's wishes, we are indeed, without a doubt, hipsters. There is nothing he can do to deny it any longer. No longer can he recoil and say "I'm not a hipster!" The evidence is damning. And, with that, I'd love to share some of our engagement photos taken by the AMAZING Ron Dillon! It was very easy to just be our incredibly awkward selves around him, and he really…

Travel Diaries – Niagara Falls

Travel Diaries

I'm trying to take advantage of everything I can around us on the east coast before we head out to Texas! So a few weekends ago we headed up to visit Niagara Falls, since Alex had never been there before. After accidentally almost crossing the border into Canada (none of us had our passports on us) we finally parked on the right side! After a quick lunch at Hardrock Cafe,…

Travel Diaries: San Luis Obispo – California

Travel Diaries

I thought it'd be nice to take a gander back at one of my favorite vacations ever, and that vacation was to central California. I went to a bunch of interesting places! The city I stayed in  was Cambria, which is a lovely little town and I'd LOVE to go back there someday!  This travel diaries is going to look at San Luis Obispo (also called SLO), a quaint little…

Travel Diaries: Bemus Point

Local Flavor, Travel Diaries

Bemus Point is somewhere I always used to go as a child. We would watch music shows here, eat dinner out here, and eat ice cream on the main little street. It's a quaint little town and while visiting my parents on a day off, we decided to take the boyfriend around and show him the places we like to go near my hometown. One of those places is Bemus…

Travel Diaries: The Maryland Voyage

Travel Diaries

This past week was my boyfriend's spring break, so we planned a trip to Maryland to visit his family and to explore the area! It was a total blast! We did a LOT of relaxing, listening to music, talking, and just chilling out, which was a lovely change of pace. We were trapped together in a car for a total of 8 hours (there and back) and still aren't tired…

Cat Camera!

Life

Waaaayyyyy back when, like back in July, I mentioned that I can a cat disposable camera. I left it sitting around though and it took me ages to get  around to actually doing anything with it. Well, I FINALLY brought it to CVS and had it sent out to be developed! I got the camera at Urban Outfitters and was really excited to use it, mainly because of the cats.…

Travel Diaries: San Destin

Travel Diaries

Back in 2012 I went to San Destin, FL over spring break to visit my parents. Since it's still so cold outside, with no end in sight, I'm desperately looking back at past vacations to the warmth! Sitting in front of my heater looking at the ocean is pretty sad, but at least I feel warm!! Beware: Image heavy post below!! Destin had BEAUTIFUL beaches and the Harbor Walk Marina…

Favorite Things about Erie

Life, Local Flavor

I grew up in a smaller town that is snowy what feels like 60% of the year. Since I've moved to Pittsburgh, what seems like permanently (at least for now), I've been thinking about my hometown. When I was little, I always wanted to move away to a big city (which I've half accomplished I'd say!) and now I'm looking back and I want to share a little about Erie…
