↠ my sweetest zachary, i’m so happy it’s you ♡ a few snippets from our magical day in iceland spent with the most wonderful humans. three weeks in & i’m still so giddy with excitement about waking up next to you every day. here is to forever my love. and ever and ever and ever.
↠ physically in portland, but mentally still strolling the floral lined alleyways of mykonos with my love @zach_fields ♡ been struggling with jet lag since we got home, falling asleep at 6pm & waking up at 4am ◡̈ anyone have any tips on conquering jetlag?!
↠ today is #WorldOceansDay. a day where we stop & take a look at the damage we’ve done, where we are now & where will be in the future. did you know that every time you purchase a single use plastic item (water bottle, straw, to-go utensils & cups, shopping bag, etc.) that those things don’t really ever go away? 91% of post consumer plastic isn’t recycled & the harsh truth is that a vast majority of that ends up in our precious oceans. it is predicted that by 2050, our oceans will contain more plastic than fish...& if that isn’t scary enough, by 2021, the world revenue for plastic water bottle purchases will reach 200 billion dollars annually. all to say, we have a little problem here on earth & it is absolutely our responsibility as citizens of this planet to rise up & take care of the abundance that God has given us. this little bag of trash is only a fraction of what i walked past on my way from the parking lot to this rock on the beach. we all need to start doing our part & put our oceans, humankind & our world before our own every day conveniences ☼ ⋒ ☾
↠ as our honeymoon is coming to end & we are sat in the airport lounge with a delayed flight, i am feeling so grateful & so blessed to have had the opportunity to live out our dream honeymoon! we spent every day basking in the sunshine, eating lots of gyros & baklava, & honestly just laying around watching gossip girl ♡ thanking Jesus today & everyday for my sweet @zach_fields & the abundance of blessings He has given us both. until the next trip!
↠ i decided on this trip that i would try an alcoholic beverage for the first time, ya know, since i’m a full grown married adult now (lol), took one sip & then ordered a virgin strawberry daiquiri ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ the moral of the story is, you don’t have to be anything but yourself or try to fit into the world’s stereotype of who it thinks you should be! so be you & keep on shining your light!
↠ as i was walking near this house, a passerby named jodi told me she thought this home matched my instagram. we chatted for a bit about travel & then i took this photo. turns out jodi was right. i now feel so connected to this little orange home in a sea of white. i always did love being the oddball out. if you see this jodi, thx for the encouragement ⋒ ☼ ◡̈
↠ my mood this past week. why hello instagram, it has been over a week since we last spoke via a photo! what a wild & wonderful week it has been. if you wanna catch up on the fun & nightmare that happened right before our wedding, check my story highlight!!! despite such events, @zach_fields & i had a beautifully successful wedding in iceland surrounded by the best of humans! i can’t wait for you all to see the photos & video ♡ but for now, we are currently relaxing the days away in santorini, what a life! being married is the best ☼ have you been to greece? send us your recs!
↠ took a whimsical & spontaneous trip to the desert with my mother for a little pre-wedding relaxation & pampering. we spent our time strolling through farmers markets & antique shops, drinking lots of lemon water & smoothies, & doing face masks from @BurtsBees ☼ we especially loved the detoxifying clay mask with charcoal & acai oil as well as the exfoliating clay mask with plum extract! also, the lip scrub with honey crystals is so dreamy! very thankful for this weekend & for all of these little acts of self care that are helping me prepare for my wedding next week! #BurtsBees#ad
↠ tomorrow we hop on a plane & jet off to forever ♡ we are both filled with so many emotions as we are closing one chapter & beginning the next. don’t even know how to feel but i do know that i love you so much sweet zachary! i can’t wait to be your wife! four more days!
