“When I see your light shine, I know I’m home”-Vance Joy

October 6th, 2018 was the best day ever. I can’t stop thinking about it. Somehow a year and half of planning came together flawlessly. Everyone kept telling me I seemed so calm during the day and morning before, but it was impossible to faze me. Everything was awesome. It felt totally surreal. Even though the…

Frugal, Fancy, Friday: Fiance Edition!

Vacation last week set me back a bit in my posting, but here’s a special “Frugal, Friday” featuring my wonderful fiancé! Andrew does not love to shop, but he looooooves to save money, so consignment and thrift shops are perfect for anytime he needs a new ‘fit. First up, Andrew’s literal favorite shirt. I could…

You are loved

As I started to say goodbye to my friends and family today, I couldn’t hold back tears. I often cry, so this wasn’t entirely surprising, but in that moment I was so overwhelmed by how lucky I am and I didn’t want the weekend to end. I’m extremely grateful people traveled from all over the country to celebrate with me, and those who couldn’t be there reached out to wish me well. This weekend was a really special one, but also the latest in a series of incredible memories I have with these beautiful, brilliant individuals. I never want to take for granted how fortunate I am and what a privilege it is to feel this love.

Also… I got…

Frugal, Fancy, Friday: Cape Edition 2018

The Serio family heads to the Cape this weekend for our 15th annual summer vacation! Over the years our fashion sense has evolved, but we always have a few staple items. Most important, our “Serio” branded apparel. Since 2007, we’ve ordered custom t-shirts each year for our wiffle-ball game. As we got older and less…

“Oh, the places you’ll go!”-Dr. Seuss

There is nothing like a good adventure I have been incredibly fortunate to travel to a number of countries in the world. However, after plugging in the places I have been on this map, it is clear that I have actually only seen a small fraction of the world. Make yours @ BigHugeLabs.com As a…
