Hi y’all, I’m Lindsey. I grew up in the golf cart capital of the world, Peachtree City, Georgia. After graduating from high school, I attended the University of Alabama, where I received a Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training (Roll Tide!). I currently reside in Charlotte, North Carolina, with my husband, Dustin. I love gouda cheese, barbecue chips, and a good Moscow mule… or 3.
To be completely honest, it took me a while to actually start this thing. I have been thinking about my voice, my heart, and how I want to reveal each of them to you for nearly a year now. When this little idea began I knew I wanted to do 3 things:
1. Be myself.
2. Be realistic.
3. Make it fun.
I know we all follow blogs, Instagrams, Tumblrs, etc that seem WAY too good to be true. That’s probably because they are. So when I decided to start my own blog, I wanted to make it as real as possible. I think that’s why I chose the above picture. I had my DREAM wedding in Charleston, SC in June 2016. The week leading up to it was absolute hell (search wedding in the sidebar to read about it), but this day was the best. However, at the point in the day when this picture was taken, we were both sweating profusely, my veil almost went in the marsh, and my bouquet was so heavy I made my sister switch with me (I’m actually embarrassed at the amount of #firstworldproblems in that statement, but so be it.) I easily could have posted one of of sunset pictures by the water that still make me swoon, but this picture is much more “us.” “Us” is my husband, Dustin and I. We have been married a little over a year. We are coming up on our second anniversary with the Queen City and I can’t say enough wonderful things about the place we call home. We are both transplants to Charlotte and have loved every minute of living here.
I’ve got lots of exciting things planned for this blog, so please stay tuned!
