Blogged THREE beautiful weddings this week, so the blog is looking awfully pretty!! 😍 Today I’m gearing up for tomorrow’s wedding & going to my little brother’s football game tonight. (Senior year!! What the what) We always love a good Friday over here!! 🖤
Talked for a hot minute on stories this week about something that I’m super passionate about - money & financial planning. ;) You’re probably like - hi Jessica let’s not talk about money on insta. But actually how about we do? Just for a minute. Everyone always talks about how we what you see on social media isn’t real and la di da - but what about the pressure to “keep up” that’s putting you in debt? Not 👏🏻 worth 👏🏻 it 👏🏻 This is just a little PSA to myself & everyone out there - you don’t HAVE to live like everyone else. You don’t HAVE to go into debt to keep up. You don’t HAVE to have the latest and greatest. Breaking news - you are fully adequate without those things. In fact, there are things that are way more worth your investment like retirement & money market accounts. 😉 One of the best life decisions I ever made was to surround myself with people smarter than me (aka financial advisors and the like) to help me make wiser decisions than I’d ever make on my own. 10/10 recommend. Because your money is supposed to give you the freedom to LIVE and not make you a slave to your credit card companies. ✨ I’m officially off my bandwagon now, but if you’re local to stl and want a bomb financial advisor, let a girl know & I’ll send you my person!!
I won’t even lie about the fact that I was teary while these two were saying their handwritten vows to one another. ✨ Ben & Courtney make the greatest team and I’m so freaking stoked that they’re married!!! 😍🙌🏻
Grateful for days to dream with dear friends & connect to good WiFi to upload all the things. Not too shabby for a Wednesday 😉
Pretty sure one of the best part of wedding days is being surrounded by all your fave people ❤️ // life lately looks like pouring through thousands of images & chatting with so many sweet 2020 & 2021 brides! Not one bit upset about it 🙌🏻
It’s wild to me how God always knows what you need before you could ever dream it up. I distinctly remember the first time @andreavehige and I ever got coffee and I left thinking, “Good gosh that girl can TALK. And I’ll probably never talk to her again.” 😂😂 (Don’t worry, the feeling was mutual lol) Fast forward through a series of only God events and somehow we tolerate each other. ;) Dozens of weddings and even more late night chats in the Rural King parking lot and you’ve got yourself a dear friendship. 🖤 Thanks for being the best travel buddy, always reading my mind via eye contact across the room, and overall being the MVP. You are sacrificial, incredibly loyal, and a gift to everyone around you. Only good things in store for 23, I CAN FEEL IT ✨😉 happy birthday!
