Skye Turns 7

You would think spending your birthday with princesses at Walt Disney World would be hard to beat… Honestly, that didn’t meet our expectations in the first place last year, but it’s certain idyllic.

Stepniowski Year in Review 2015

More feet…

Over the past eleven years, we have visited Selby Botanical Gardens in Sarasota, Florida several times.  Aside from being such a magical place, it’s also the spot where Luke and I were married.  I remember it like it was moments ago. We got some pretty cool pictures yesterday, including a few really amazing ones of the orchids […]
