Summing Up Sunday

by Courtney on January 14, 2013


Talk about a great Sunday. Actually, talk about a great weekend. I had fun with friends on Friday, a fantastic date night on Saturday, and a little bit of QT time with my bestie, good food, shopping, and relaxing on Sunday. Basically, it doesn’t get much better than that. The day started off with an […]

Two thumbs up for the holiday weekend! Although I actually took the night off from blogging or taking any photos, Jay and I did end up having a nice evening, complete with a glass of wine, some of my favorite pizza, and a few hours hanging out with good friends. Oh yeah, and we finally […]

Sweet Treats Galore!
