2015 Favorites

Kate Spade Bow Heels

Garrett and I are trying to figure out what to do for New Year’s Eve. This is going to be the first time since we’ve started dating that we will actually be together for the holiday! I’m so appreciative for his work as a paramedic; the job is not easy and it’s even harder around the…
