In Real Life

Merricks outfit: See details here

We found out a couple of months ago that a dear friend was getting married. We were, of course, thrilled and decided to go out for the ceremony in Provo, UT. I'd been emailing with Merrick because she did an incredible painting of baby Nat, and since she was in Provo, I figured that we owed it to ourselves and the blog world to meet up.

I was a little nervous since she is my very first bloggy meet up. But she was every bit as adorable, sweet, fashionable (she wore the orange pants!), and overall lovely as I had hoped. And her baby gave me a hug goodbye. And she didn't make fun of me endlessly for my attempt at writing out how to pronounce my name. I'd call that a blogger success. (Her husband, although he did not offer me his trucks and baby love, was still very nice, as well.)

Merrick has a way better camera/tripod/photography skillz than I do, so she snapped a few photos of our (too short) time together. And despite my inability to pose without looking ridiculously awkward, it was a total blast. Thanks, Merrick!


  1. I wish I could have been there too!

  2. So fun! Again, wish it had been longer! Next time I'm in DC, I'll call you :)

  3. Oh wow sounds like you guys had a lot of fun! I have never had the courage to meet up with a fellow blogger (only at this one blogger meet up I went to last year ;P) I love your guys' outfits you look great!
