The Ultimate Blogger Guide to Health and Wellness

Since the beginning of the year, I have embarked on an overall health and wellness journey for my body that has settled specifically into yoga and meditation/mindfulness. Time for some blogger real talk. If you were around last year, you saw that I was actively working on my mental health. Doing anything I could to help settle my anxiety and depression. It all worked for a while. And then winter hit and suddenly nothing I did, including ...

Springtime in Chicago

Lately, I’ve been consuming all things spring. From springy music that puts a little pep in my step to the fresh flowers at the grocery store. Which, obviously, includes spring fashion. And, oh boy, I’ve got tons of stuff coming up for you guys. Keep an eye out for your Thursday morning posts because the spring style I’ve got going on it killer. This dress in particular isn’t actually that springy. Black isn’t a ...

Wedding Day | The Wedding

Today’s the final installment from our wedding day. The Wedding. And all of the photos that inevitably come after that. Every familial combination you can think of, all the friends, bridal party combinations, etc. EVERYTHING. The very definition of non-traditional We wrote our own ceremony [read: Sarah wrote it and I said “yeah, cool!”] and threw so many traditions out the window. Zoe was our ring dog, we had mixed gender ...

Wedding Day | The Photos

You’ve seen the getting ready pictures. Now enjoy the proper photos. We did our photos before the ceremony so we could properly enjoy our own cocktail hour. Best. Idea. Ever. I was handed a whiskey sour as soon as we finished the ceremony and was able to enjoy it! So if you’re able to do photos between getting ready and ceremony, I HIGHLY recommend it. Nobody will be surprised to see that we included the dogs in our shoot. Zoe ...

Wedding Day | Getting Ready

Stile.Foto.WED It’s been nearly 6 months and I haven’t shared my wedding stuff yet. Partly, I’ve been decompressing from what was a stunning, emotional, and HUGE day. Partly, I’ve been letting family and friends get to photos and stuff first. Partly, I just don’t quite know how to fit everything into a blog post. So I decided to go with three. And partly, it’s honestly something I’m still processing. ...

Paso Robles | Wine Country for Millennials PART TWO

Wine country was easily one of the most magical experiences I’ve ever had. Taking a break from the city and going out to relax, enjoy some mountain air, and tour wineries was exactly what I needed to unwind from a crazy winter and what’s shaping up to be a very wet spring [focusing on the fact that it’s going to make for some inspiring flowers and blooms very soon]. Read the first part of our Paso experience here. Our ...

Honeymoon | Casa Cenote, Tulum, Mexico

When you send a blogger and her photographer on their honeymoon, you’re bound to get more photos than you bargained for. And, thus, I’m still sharing content form my honeymoon and not even remotely sorry. Today’s post takes us to Casa Cenote, or Cenote Manati, a lovely little cenote which we found thanks to my ever favorite Rosie the Londoner. As we were in Tulum, I kept looking back at her posts form her Tulum adventure ...

Honeymoon | Cabana Life

We’ve reached that point in winter where everyone’s sick of the cold and aching for spring, warmer weather, and some sun. I had been saving these photos for exactly that time of year. And as NYC is having snow days and Chicago is less than 20, it seems like the best time to share these photos. They recall, for me, an incredibly romantic and relaxing break in the craziness of life. Just my wife, me, and the beach for endless sunny ...

Puppy Love | I Love You Sixteen

My puppy is one of the most important parts of my life. Next to my wife and my other puppy, that is. Basically, my life revolves on those I share a home with and I wouldn’t have it any other way. When we first adopted Zoe, I had no idea that my life would, quite literally, go to the dogs. I just wanted a fuzzy companion to cuddle and love, and I wanted to give a dog a second chance at life by rescuing. Little did we know that would ...

Grounds and Hounds

It’s an ill kept secret that I adore coffee. It’s even LESS of a secret that I adore dogs. So what happens when I get the opportunity to work with a coffee company that donates money to dog rescues? I pounce on the opportunity, wagging my invisible tail!   Have a Little Dog With Your Coffee Grounds and Hounds might just be my new favorite brand of all time. Over everything else. Just. In general. I’m officially in love ...
