I’m a small-town bride. Like, really small. Like, 1,200 people small. After living in this sweet, wheat farm, rural, wild turkeys in our yard, town of Waitsburg, Wash., for one year, I actually know 90 percent of everyone in this city. And it’s wonderful. But, being in such a small, rural area, I knew it […]

Who knew that picking the song to dance to for our first dance would be so stressful? I thought it would be easy; my music loving fiance would suggest something, send me a link and I’d be all YAY! I LOVE IT! That so has not happened! So far, we’ve gone back and forth suggesting […]

Let’s talk about M-O-N-E-Y. I’m kind of passionate about my finances. Currently on my nightstand is a book by Charles Schwab on investing.
