Isn't it Romantic?

For all my faithful readers out there (Mom), I know, I know, it's been a long time since my last post. Whenever I let more than a couple days go by without blogging, I suddenly feel this immense pressure to deliver the perfect post, or else why did I let so much time go by? So here I am breaking down this wall by starting with a ramble, definitely not perfect. Also, I'm going to enact these 5 steps for staying inspired to prevent this from happening again! I might not be going back to school, but that doesn't mean I should lose all semblance of discipline and productivity (not that I wasn't the queen of procrastination, ask any of my study partners: I'm the worst distraction.)
If you made it through that paragraph, what I really want to write about is the beautiful event I was blessed to be a part of last weekend, the marriage of my best friend, Whitney Gearhart, to her best friend, Noah Starksen. I won't hide the fact that I was more than a little jealous that he rode away with her at the end and I was left to go back to the hotel without her. But such are weddings right? I shouldn't have been so surprised.

Whitney and I in the prime of our cuteness.

When I think of Whitney a million memories come to mind. Our preschool crushes, our Hanson obsession, petty arguments over who got the name Crystal when we played mermaids, rants about "stupid boys" and planning friend anniversary cruises to Antartica (we can be a little strange), and those froyo dates where we talked about anything and everything. We've been through every stage of our lives together. It is something so unique and special. Seeing her last name change to Starksen causes my heart to smile every time. Whitney and Noah, you are beautiful together. You are strong. You are creative. You  bless those around you with your love and laughter. All the distance you have endured has only brought you closer. You might just be my favorite couple. I hope to find someone who compliments me as well as you compliment each other someday. Lovelovelove you both.

Go here to see some gorgeous pictures from the special day!

Hope you've had a wonderful start to your week!


  1. Taylor, these photos are terrific. Thank you for sharing. I recall the two of you girls when you were very little and I must admit that you were indeed full of cuteness!
    But now, you are both incredibly beautiful. I know that Whitney's parents must be very proud and of course I KNOW that yours are, Taylor.
    Love your blog and most of all I love you.

  2. Thank you so much for your encouraging words! We're working on regaining that cuteness! ;)
