Today marks three years of marriage for Dan and I! We’ve been together for five years and I just can’t believe how quickly time is flying!

We moved twice, had a baby, completely renovated our home, and started a business. The past few years have been a wild ride but I definitely wouldn’t want to share it with anyone else!

I’m a church going, catholic school, believing kind-of-girl but I think there comes a time in everyone’s life when they can truly recognize God’s plan at work. He brought Dan into my life, no doubt about it! Every time I find myself obsessing over my own plans for our life I have to remind myself that His plan has and always will be the best one. I find our marriage to be proof of that. I feel beyond blessed to have Dan in my life!

Can’t wait to see what the next three years will bring!

This weather is definitely taking me back to the year we got married! It has been gorgeous! Fall is creeping in which can only mean one thing… time for pumpkin spice EVERYTHING! Last week, I made the pumpkin spice cupcakes and this coffee was perfect with them!

This version is great to keep in the fridge and use throughout the week in your morning coffee or you can mix it altogether at once in a crock pot for you and your friends!
