Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I love the pictures. Especially the one in Paris where your red tights match your lipstick. But I'm just so curious, why do you have a MAC tattoo? It looks like the same font as the cosmetics company and I was wondering if that's really what it was for.

    Thanks!

    I adore that you are very talented just as your husband is. There is no shadowing in your marriage! It is such a great honour to be able to read your blog and twitter. I have learned so much already!

    It is wonderful that God brought such talented people together that compliment on another so much! I look forward to their next tour when you all come back to Club Retro in Orangevale, CA! :)

    I really like your blog. I love your photos and the pics with you and Josh are awesome! You guys look so adorable ;]

    I was wondering what the tattoo on your neck meant - it's really cool. Who took the pics of you guys together? They came out super nice!
