After Kaleb and I got married, we began hosting movie nights at our apartment for the weeks leading up to Christmas. We invite all of our friends and anyone else who is up to …

How I Survived Long Distance

Pin it

If you’re at all familiar with the story of how my husband and I began dating, you probably know we started out long distance. Months before I moved to LA, Kaleb was already living there while I was at home in Alabama. There was 0 hesitancy when we started dating because I already had plans …

What I’ve Learned From My Sister

Pin it

I begged my parents to give me a little sister when I was little. Of course, I don’t remember that part very well. I remember my mother being pregnant and I specifically remembering proclaiming we would name her, “Barbie Doll.” I clearly didn’t win that battle. I remember the day my sister was born. I …

If you don’t know me: Hi, my name is Taylor. I married a guy I met at a YouTube convention and have a family that consists of us, my step-chinchilla, and two maltipoos named Selfie and Hippie. (Fitting right?) If you do know me (or follow me on Instagram), you know my animals. I’m obsessed …

It’s Time to Rid Your Life of Toxic People

Pin it

“You are who you hang out with.” Perhaps one of my mother’s favorite things to quote to me. She isn’t wrong. She’s actually very right. (No surprise there!) Fortunately/unfortunately I was homeschooled. I didn’t have your typical middle and high school experience. I tried out public high school for a couple months my freshman year …

4 Thoughtful (and useful!) Engagement Gifts

Pin it

“OMG! Everyone I know is getting married!” I’m slowing entering this phase of my life where everyone around me is getting engaged, married and beginning to send out pregnancy announcements. (Eek!) I know I scared my friends when Kaleb and I got engaged in the summer of 2014. I was the first of all of them …

What Getting Married Really Means

Pin it

In a world of wedding magazines, shows, brands, and more, how can you NOT dream of your wedding day? I would lay in bed at night at 15 years old and wonder, “Where is my husband-to-be right now?” I spent hours on Pinterest, picking out the theme I wanted at the time, the dress styles …
