Raleigh Travel Diary

Downtown Raleigh!

Stephen turned 27 exactly a month ago today! To celebrate his birthday, we spent a wonderful and relaxing weekend in Raleigh, NC. We’re at an interesting point in our lives, because we don’t know where we want to move next. We are currently in a temporary place about 45 minutes south of Asheville, but we want to relocate to a bigger urban area within the next year. So the trip to Raleigh really had a dual purpose!

Our Beautiful Wedding Video

Me and my handsome husband on our wedding day!

To say that August 29, 2015 was the best day of my life is definitely an understatement! To be totally honest, I have trouble writing about our wedding. I simply don’t have enough faith in my word-craftsmanship. Trying to depict that beautiful day through my writing would be like attempting to recreate the statue of David with a chainsaw, or the Mona Lisa with a twelve-pack of Crayolas.

Greetings from the Sunshine State! Stephen and I drove down on Thursday and are having a wonderful time! Adam and Andrea’s wedding was Saturday; it was stunning and a ton of fun! I met some of the coolest people, and they had hands-down the best wedding cake I’ve tasted. It was a tower of little gourmet eclair puffs covered in rich crystallized caramel and flowers.

The Confident Girl’s Guide to Social Media-ing

The Confident Girl's Guide to Social Media-ing

Social media is such a two-sided coin. Personally, I’ve always loved it! Back in the myspace days, my friends and I used to go out and do little photoshoots for our profile pictures. We’d delight in our deep fifteen-year-old captions like “Behind Blue Eyes,” for an angsty up-close shot of our Maybelline-rimmed peepers. Oh, myspace! I miss the personalized wallpaper and profile songs a little…

Easter Sunday in Gypsy 05

Easter Sunday in my Gypsy 05 jumpsuit

Happy (way belated!) Easter from the Trevathans!!! We had the most amazing Easter Sunday– our first as a married couple! I’m still learning my way around WordPress and Lightroom, and it’s definitely a process. A fun and satisfying process though! So that’s why these beginning posts are trickling in sporadically instead of being more “real time.” 

A Hikable Feast

Me hiking in Caesar's Head

Stephen and I had the most beautiful, craziest hike in Caesars Head, SC a couple weeks ago. Let me tell you about our day! We left home around 11am armed with granola bars, clementines, and a little Tupperware of homemade black bean burgers and spinach. I gave up animal products and refined sugar for Lent, so the granola bars were all Stephen. I dislike those teeth-injuringly hard Nature Valley ones anyway, and they’re Stephen’s favorite. (He’s crazy– Team Chewy all the way!)
