Engaged

They met in the summer of 2016 through a mutual friend. Brooke doesn’t remember exactly how they coordinated their first meeting, but she does remember that they drove around the countryside and small town in Wyatt’s truck, talking and driving for hours and finding out they had a lot in common. “Wyatt has always been […]

Tips

I live in Iowa so it’s inevitable that the months of January through March are pretty cold.

Family & Kids

I woke up on Saturday to the sound of wind battering against the windows. Thankfully, when I checked the weather, it was supposed to die down a bit by the afternoon, but it was still chilly. Carleen scoped out this location and I love the options we had, blocking as much of the wind as […]
