Dear Monday, Last week was full of lots of traveling. This week looks a lot like Fireside Drive on repeat. I’ll take it!

Dear Charlotte, Ty and I have only flown through your airport but never explored your city until last week! But, we had the best time with one of our past couples, Brian and Megan, seeing their city, filming a commercial for Brian’s job at Pfeiffer University, and savoring all that Charlotte has to offer! We’ll have to come back to explore more soon! 

Dear Weekend, You were full of all the things we love – friends, food, and family! We spent the night with Nate + Kelsey before our wedding on Saturday because they live super close to the venue we were shooting at!! We ate tac0s (my fave!!) drove around Liberty’s campus, and taught them how to play euchre. We stayed up way too late but they were still acclimating back to our time zone after being in Thailand, so it’s justified ;] Then we drove from the wedding on Saturday night to Tyler’s parents house in NOVA to celebrate a belated Mother’s Day with his Momma yesterday. Needless to say we’re a bit tired this morning, but we’re thankful for our people and time with them!

Dear #cleaoonvacation, You’re visiting our house this week and you’ve started out the visit mad because you smell Bokeh Boy’s scent from when he visited last week. Don’t worried ‘ole girl, you’re still our #1!! Now we just have to figure out a way to keep you from eating all the (new to you, since your last visit) poisonous plants around the house. So far the baby gate (installed by the previous owners) is finally getting some use to keep you upstairs!! And to think I’ve tried for the past 3.5 years to get rid of that thing, haha!

Dear Ty, I got a wild hair last week and deconstructed the whole bathroom downstairs. You’ve been telling me for years that you couldn’t believe I hadn’t touched it since we moved in. Welp, after successfully taking the mirror off the wall, all the outlet covers down, and removing all the other fixtures in the room, I guess you can say it’s finally happening! See ya never baby blue bathroom.

Happy Monday sweet friends!! This week is full of lots of celebrating for us because it’s Ty’s birthday week!! He’ll be turning the big 2-7 on Thursday!! I can’t wait to shower him in all the things he loves!! We hope you have the best week too :] 


The idea for Dear Monday developed from a deep love for storytelling. Letter writing kept us close in spirit though thousands of miles kept us physically apart for quite a while throughout our dating relationship. This became the foundation for what our business was built upon. The idea that “true love can go the distance”. And even the seemingly small things like a simple note here or there, two hearts can be connected and a story can be written that is so much more beautiful than our minds can simply dream up.
