J+C Wedding Day Details

On Thursday Chelsea and I will celebrate two months being married, so I thought I would reflect on all of our wedding details this week! Today I’ll be sharing all the special details of our wedding day. Tomorrow I’ll share some photos of all the wedding day events, and then I’ll wrap up the week with a couple posts about our reception day.


Our ceremony and reception happened on different days. Our ceremony was a small, immediate family affair at Chelsea’s parents’ house and our reception was a brunch gathering of all of our favorite people at an event space in Seattle. Continue reading

Friday Favorites: Kamp Kaydee 2019

Last weekend, I hosted the annual sorority retreat with my chapter advisor sisters for the newly elected chapter council. Kamp Kaydee, as it was named when we hosted it for the first time six years ago, is an opportunity for us to come together for a glamping weekend.

The retreat focuses on leadership development, goal setting, and planning for the semester ahead. It’s always such a fun weekend, and my favorites today are all things Kamp! Continue reading

Kamp Kappa Delta 2019

This weekend, I hosted another Kamp Kappa Delta with my sorority advisor sisters. We host this retreat as an opportunity to get to know the newly elected chapter officers and help prepare them for their term. I always look forward to this weekend because we are fully immersed in our sisterhood for 24 hours, and it is truly a time to bond and learn.


We host Kamp at Continue reading

Ringing in 2019

With just a few days to prep for NYE, I enjoy checking out shops in person to see what they have in stock for the celebration. This year I love what I found at Crate and Barrel. Their NYE collection is a collaboration with Layer Cake and it is perfection! I love the color scheme – a mix of pink, mauve, gold, and grey. I also love that it’s not specific to New Year’s, so I can use it for other celebrations throughout the year.

Noon Year’s Eve Charcuterie Board

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas holiday surrounded by loved ones! We had a lovely time celebrating with Chelsea’s family. Now, as we prepare to ring in the new year, I am excited to share a great idea for your party – big or small – a charcuterie board!

I don’t know about you, but I struggle to make it to midnight on New Year’s Eve, so I’m excited about the concept of Noon Year’s Eve, which makes going to bed at my normal bedtime of 9 p.m. perfectly acceptable. 😉

A charcuterie board is nice because you can cater it to the exact needs of your group. You can also customize the amount of food based on the size of your group. And, it’s perfect for noon or a midnight snack!
