With the new year means lots of changes ahead, personally and business-wise! 🙂 But before there is change, I love taking this time of the year to reflect on the past twelve months.

I initially met Paige’s parents before having the privilege of meeting the ever-so-sweet, Ryan and Paige months later! It was because they knew Ryan’s plans to pop the question, so they were naturally excited for their daughter!!! If you were to meet this darling couple, you would be excited for them too because they were […]

Saturday afternoon around 3:30 p.m (this is Alex, it was 3:15). Alex picked me up from his house after “working” a couple of hours (one of many lies told that day…) so we could head to the beach for our favorite Florida tradition — Sunset, sand, and Mi Gente tacos (yum!). After driving past our typical […]

Oh, these two. Chris and Chanel stole my heart years ago when we got to know each other during their exciting engagement season. Since then, we celebrated their wedding back in October 2016 (it was a fun day I’ll NEVER forget!!), and now we celebrate the coming of Baby Liquido!!! Seeing Chris and Chanel share their […]
