• Smile Brilliant Night Guard Review

    Hey, everyone! It’s been a minute. I hope you’re all doing well, and enjoying fall! A few months ago, Smile Brilliant reached out to me and asked if I wanted to review their custom night guard. I don’t know about you, but grinding my teeth at night has always been an issue for me (especially when I’m stressed). I’d often wake up with an achey jaw and severe headaches, and I knew it came from grinding at night. So, when Smile Brilliant reached out, I was more than excited to test out a potential solution to a painful problem. If you grind your teeth at night, you might experience: Stiff…

  • What I Love About Being a Business Owner

    Hi, everyone! It’s been quite a bit since I last blogged, and there’s a reason for that! For those of you who don’t know, Nic and I started our own business in 2020, and it’s kept us VERY busy! Last year, we dreamed up and opened Door County Delivered, a service delivering local Door County products straight to your doorstep! Door County has always had an incredibly special place in our hearts. I grew up in the county, Nic and I met in the county and got married in the county. So, I think you get the picture. Opening this business and being a business owner has been bliss. Of…

  • Friday Favorites – July 24, 2020

    Happy Friday, friends! I am back on the blogging train, and am bringing back Friday Favorites! Every Friday, I will highlight some of my favorite things from the week…. books, food, movies, quotes, thoughts… who knows! The possibilities are endless. The Country Ok, the country is my favorite. Don’t get me wrong, the city is beautiful too, but there is something about the country you can’t beat. The starry night skies, the birds chirping, the quiet morning and evening walks, sunsets over the lake, full trees blowing in the wind, familiar faces… the country is full simple joys around every corner, and it makes my heart so happy.    …

  • Christmas in July – Greetings Cards You Need to See

    Merry Christmas in July! Cue the Christmas music! It’s no secret that I love Christmas, which means I’m a huge fan of Christmas in July. Hallmark Christmas movies have been continuously playing in the background, and let me tell ya, I’m not complaining. I celebrate this holiday year long in some way, whether it’s playing an occasional Christmas movie every few weeks, jamming out to Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas Is You or keeping a little snowman on our bookshelf. I love to keep the Christmas spirit alive all year. I’m really excited to have partnered with Basic Invite and share some of their beautiful greetings cards in…

  • Whitening Sensitive Teeth at Home

    Hey, everyone! I hope 2020 has been treating you well. I am starting off the year off as a married woman, and I am LOVING every single minute of it! Seriously it is the best. And I have SO many exciting blogs in the works, I can’t wait to keep sharing them with you! Recently, I was sent Smile Brilliant to test and honestly review, and I was beyond excited to give it a try. I’ve always had sensitive teeth and sure do love my coffee, so when I found out these products are incredibly conscious towards sensitive teeth, I knew this would be the right fit for me. Seriously,…

  • Forever Newlyweds

    I can’t believe the last time I blogged was a month before the big day, and here we are a little over 2 months later, MARRIED! We got married on September 28, 2019 in Egg Harbor, WI on the most beautiful fall day. The days leading up to our wedding were cold, cloudy and rainy. I kept checking the weather forecast like clock work, and it kept saying it was supposed to rain on our wedding day. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have minor freak outs. Quick tip here – people will tell you not to check the weather forecast before your big day. I’m going to…

    One Month Until The Big Day

    I’d be lying if “Today I Met The Boy I’m Gonna Marry” hasn’t been stuck in my head on repeat this last week. I’d also be lying if I said my stomach wasn’t full of butterflies everyday, too. We are ONE MONTH AWAY from our big day. Where did the time go?! How is it only 30 days away?! It feels like yesterday when I met Nic. I still see him sitting by that bonfire and I still remember taking a seat next to him. I also vividly remember knowing, in that exact moment, I had just met my future husband. People often ask me if I really knew in…

  • VIICode Eye Mask + Eye Spray Review

    Hi, everyone! I hope you are all doing well and enjoying the sweet summertime! Wedding planning is in full swing, and we’ve been loving every minute of this exciting adventure. Recently, I had the pleasure of working with VIICode to review two of their products. If you remember, I reviewed VIICode Oxygen Eye Cream two years ago, and absolutely loved it. So, I was beyond excited to try more of their products. The first of two products I tested was the VIIcode O2M Oxygen Eye Mask for All Night Repair. To cut to the chase – I LOVED it. The eye mask rejuvenated my eyes and made them feel fresh…

  • Grief, Loss & Healing

    My sweet, precious grandpa passed away two months ago. For those who don’t know, we were best friends, and he held a big piece of my heart, and I’ve always held a big piece of his in mine. Losing him has been one of the most painful and difficult experiences I’ve been through, and I still often cry thinking about him. Every single day I think about how lucky we were to have him for 89 years, but it never would have been long enough. Spending time with those you love is never long enough. All the memories, photos and videos are a constant reminder of his love, laughter, gentle…

  • Wedding Thank You Cards – Basic Invite

    The wedding countdown is getting REAL! I can’t believe we will be married in four months, and I also can’t believe how fast time flies. Wedding planning has been a dream, and I’ve loved every little part of it. If you remember from my previous Christmas in July post, I talked about this adorable company called Basic Invite. Well, I loved them so much, I’m working with and writing about them again! This time, for our wedding thank you cards! Here’s what I love about Basic Invite – the freedom to let your designs and ideas come to life. I wanted to incorporate our color palette into our thank you…
