Our Love Story: Part 6

"Here's the thing about this love story of ours. Its long. And drawn out. And mushy-gushy. And even a bit cheesy. But it's true. And I've decided to take my time writing it, capturing all the special details of those moments I never want to forget. So if mushy-gushy, cheesy love stories aren't your thing, I totally get that. Just know that I'm writing this as a gift - to my family, and my children, and their future children - and also, for [Parker] and me - so that on those days when the kids are screaming, the laundry is overflowing and the bills are rolling in...on those days when it all just seems so hard, we'll have this to remind us of those first moments when we fell in love. And if sappy, detail ridden love stories are your thing, well then you've come to the right place." -Ashley Stock

Winter Semester 2011

BYU. I was unpacking my stuff in my dorm room and in walks Parker with Tessa. This was our third meeting in person. He hung out with my mom and dad and Tessa and I for a while and I was all sorts of awkward. He was funny, though. One of the things I clearly remember was that he made us all laugh the whole time.

How We Wore It | Looks of Love

Hi there! This month for our How We Wore It series we decided to amp up the pinks and reds and purples to create some fabulous Valentine's Day outfit inspiration! I have a special place in my heart for Valentine's Day as it's also our wedding anniversary! This year Parker and I are celebrating 2 years! Woot woot! More on that later :) 
This ^^ was the photo we used for inspiration this month. We wanted it to be a pretty generic photo that we could pull all sorts of inspiration from and how cute are those macaroons?! :) I was taught to never wear red and pink together... so I decided to defy those rules and put the two colors together using this fun rose print skirt and my red top! I loved the end result! It was so girly and fun and definitely got me in the love month spirit! Also, I'm sad you can't tell in the photo (probably because it was blindingly bright outside), but I'm wearing super bright pink lipstick as well. It was the perfect addition to the pearls and the red heels to complete this Anniversary/Valentine's Day outfit!
How fun is this cute heart overlay? hehe I couldn't not add it. 

Also, sorry for the lack of photos :( We were super pressed for time! I'm planning on wearing this darling outfit on our anniversary date this weekend so we will take more photos of it then! 

Skirt (considered a blogger favorite on pinterest lol cuz ya. It's awesome!): Chicwish
