St. Augustine Engagement Shoot from Ariel Rose Photography

It never fails, when a bride-to-be finds out I'm a wedding blogger they automatically ask me for advice. They want to know everything there is to know about planning weddings like stylish little sponges. Two of the first words of wisdom to ever leave my mouth after such a conversation is one, to make sure to love your photographer and two, to make sure you do an engagement session. Because they not only give you beautiful images to treasure forever, the session will also allow you to get comfy...

Light Caramel Popcorn

I was on a flight from LA to Boston (Virgin America which if you haven't flown, ummm...it's awesome) and they gave me a bag of caramel popcorn. And the whole damn bag was only 100 calories. The BIG bag at that. So thus began my obsession with caramel popcorn. Which I may or may not have every day with my soy mocha. So here is my skinny gift of goodness. Caramel Popcorn without any guilt at all. Yum. 1 bag 100 calorie popcorn 1/8...

Skinny Vanilla Soy Mocha

Like clockwork, come 3:00 every afternoon my sweet tooth kicks in and I find myself scrounging for something sweet. And caffeinated. More often than not, I'm left with a sad little handful of chocolate chips in an attempt to curb said craving. So when Abby introduced me to this crazy easy to make little chocolate number, the inner sugar-a-holic within me perked up. Plus, I figured that saving $4 every day by making it instead of starbucksing it was worth every last penny. 4 ounces...

New Haven Wedding from Raw Photo Design

One of the best parts of my job is sharing weddings with you. Weddings that I know are going to make your jaw drop. It's my favorite thing ever. This one was set in The New Haven Lawn Club and the building alone is enough to drop that jaw, but the bride, her gown, the flowers (I could go on and on)... let's just say Raw Photo Design had something extra gorgeous to capture on this...

Philadelphia Wedding from OneLove Photography

We all collectively love this couple here at SMP. In major part because their wedding captured by onelove photography is the perfect amount of city chic and a healthy dose of gorgeous fashion; but maybe even more so for their fun, silly moments caught on camera. These two are adorable. There's no denying it. And you can see even more of their Philadelphia shindig...

Whoopie Pie Cookies + Tips for Baking with Kids

Baking with kids. It's one of those things that as a mom, I know I should be doing. But as a sort of frantic, totally spastic baker who rarely follows the instructions, well baking with little ones sort of makes me a bit crazy. But this year, I've vowed to slow down. To savor the moments. To enjoy the journey. Which means that every Sunday, Audrey and I bake. And she gets to pick the recipes. And I don't try...
