Caseapp Personalized iPhone Case

And, the weekend of love has finally arrived! With Ryan off work this weekend, he surprised me with dinner reservations tonight at my favorite Italian restaurant, Maggiano’s. I’m excited to have an excuse to dress up a little and eat way too many carbs. We’re also hoping to get out to the movies this weekend – any good recommendations about what we should see?

We all are guilty of having our phones with us at. all. times, so why not have a case that’s meaningful to you? I love having one of our family photos with me at all times!

@Disneyland is full of hidden scenes and little details. This area in particular, right around the corner from Fantasyland, was my favorite of them all! Maybe because we were there early before the crowds came pouring in, or maybe I was taking a moment to be nostalgic ... either way this was the first time in a few months that I felt happy and 100% myself. Perhaps that’s the magic of Disney that Walt always talked about.  #adultsatdisney #disneyland

  • I can’t stop obsessing over this book! It’s Behind-the-Music meets Almost Famous, and I had to constantly remind myself that I wasn’t reading an interview in Rolling Stone Magazine. I just love when a book comes around that makes me fall further in love with reading than I already am. Have you read it? What are you #currentlyreading? #bookworm #bookstagram
