DIY Magnetic Board

This weekend we were having a hard time trying to figure out a Christmas gift for my husband’s step-mom. So I decided to make her a magnetic board. I have done this before, but took pictures to show you the steps.

Things you need:
Photo Frame (you can use any size)
Sheet of metal (I found this with the duct work at Home Depot)
Tin Snips
Fabric (Big enough to cover the metal and then some)
Spray Adhesive
Hot Glue

Laying Wreaths Across America

Yesterday we had the honor to volunteer at Arlington National Cemetery to help lay wreaths on all the soldiers’ graves. There were more than 241,000 wreaths laid yesterday by tons of volunteers. They replicate this at many national cemeteries across the country. Over the USA, more than 900,000 wreaths were laid, which is amazing. We were told, before laying your wreath, to read the name of the individual out loud, so you can think about what they did for us and our freedom. We were able to lay about 4 wreaths each. But before the wreath laying, we got to watch the changing of the guards at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. It was a GORGEOUS day, and the sun was perfect:) Here are some photos from our day at Arlington Cemetery.

Peacock Feather + Rustic Wedding

I have talked a little bit about my wedding. I wanted to give you a look to what it turned out to be. I submitted my wedding on StyleMePretty. I was looking for a place for the bride to submit on, but I can’t find it (please comment if you have a link!). So photography credit goes to the wonderful Janne Photography. Here is what I submitted as a description for my wedding.

Jordan and I got married September 6th, 2015. This was also our 10 year anniversary of being together. November 1, 2013, Jordan I went to this little spot in Cincinnati, Ohio that overlooked the city. Just a casual night, waiting for time to pass before meeting up with friends. Before I knew it, Jordan was on one knee, PROPOSING! I had no idea this was coming, but was thrilled it happened! That winter, my mother and mother in law started wedding planning. We visited our outdoor venue when it had snow on the ground and booked it. Taste tested caterers and cakesĀ and attended a bridal expo.
