When the Head and the Heart Aren’t Connected

By September 30, 2014 General Posts


When your head & heart aren't connected

I’ve went to church almost every Sunday since I was a baby with the exception of Sunday’s where I was truly ill. I don’t say this to brag about my church attendance. I say it because sometimes you can grow up going to church, youth group, Christian conferences, etc. all of your life and still be missing the point. Read More

Take the first step

Taking the first step is the hardest. Whether it’s starting running again, writing a book, or even starting this post. I’ve drafted this post in my head so many times over the last few days but it’s finally time to sit down. It’s time to type and tell you what God’s placed on my heart.

Mr. Fix It

By September 27, 2014 General Posts

Ahoy! Peter here. It’s a rare occasion I scrabble into the writer’s seat of Allison’s blog but I had something I felt compelled to share. Now, I’m aware that about 90% of you are ladies out there reading these posts…or at least that’s what Facebook is showing our “like”-base to be. None-the-less, this post isn’t for you. So, ladies go take this phone (or computer, iPad or ChromeBook) and throw it at your husband who’s probably still enjoying his Saturday snooze. Or if you’re not in close proximity, just share it with him. *hint hint*

#ramsingmarriage – Hair & Makeup

By September 26, 2014 #ramsingmarriage

Many girls dream of the rare day that they get to have their hair and makeup done. I’m one of them. Having my hair and makeup done by someone else is what I would call a dream. It’s so relaxing and such a treat! Growing up, the only time my hair was professionally done was for prom and weddings. That was just my hair…our wedding day was the first time my makeup has been done in a salon and it was so much fun.

Hilary, my amazing friend of  Craig Paulsen Photography, took these beautiful photos at The Retreat Day Spa & Salon in town. If you’re looking for a photographer or a place to get your hair or makeup done I highly recommend both!

So, enjoy some more photos with a cup of tea or if you’re a coffee drinker, your morning brew. Have a great weekend!

Relaxing in a salon on your wedding day is such an amazing experience. Read More

My Story is Beautiful, Alex

By September 25, 2014 My Story is Beautiful

Being in your mid-twenties can be tough. You leave college thinking that you can own the world and will conquer it all. You snag your dream job and walk right into your destiny right away. Well, then the reality check sets in and you find yourself working odd jobs wondering when your real life will start.

Project Sewing Workshop

Sound familiar? This is how my life after college began, and along with some of my own personal wrestlings, I started to believe my life lacked purpose.

From Work to Workout

Allison showing off her new favorite sweater.

There are some days that I just want to wear something that I can transition right into a run after work… Now, taken into consideration that I don’t go for runs as often as I’d like (a fact that I will be changing in the coming weeks), this was something that I wanted to also wear because it was seriously comfortable. But, for any of you who want to transition to a run (while changing pants in the car while your husband drives to the next location for their photo shoot for the evening…let this be some inspiration)!

Our Second Engagement Story

By September 23, 2014 From The Archives

Two weeks ago Peter was emailed that they had recovered some of our blog. While all the photos are gone from easy access, the text is still decipherable after a lot of time spent looking at code. Over the next few months I’ll be re-posting some fan favorites as a From The Archives series. Today I bring you our second engagement story, since today is September 23 and we were engaged for the second time on March 23!

#ramsingmarriage – Shoes

By September 22, 2014 #ramsingmarriage

The Ramsings show off their cool wedding shoes.

Peter and I love fun shoes and fashion. I think it might even be one of the things that sparked our interest in each other initially (well and our love of God). Planning the details of the big day was colorful and planning out our shoes was no exception.

#ramsingmarriage – First Look

By September 19, 2014 #ramsingmarriage

Today, I’m excited to finally post #ramsingmarriage photos on the blog! (If you’re wondering why I’m using the hashtag #ramsingmarriage start here first). Yes, I’ve been making you wait because I hadn’t even taken the time to view all of them for more than a couple of seconds until recently. Peter and I got them back as we were landing in Iowa and we impatiently waited through the hour-long drive home to view them (not enough cell reception in Iowa to view them as we rode to my childhood home). We quickly viewed (really, only a couple of seconds per photo) all 649 of them the night we arrived home. It was well worth only getting 4 1/2 hours of sleep to view all of our pictures before we were up and off to set up for our Iowa Reception.

My Story is Beautiful, Hilary

By September 18, 2014 My Story is Beautiful

Hilary shares her story.

“Am I doing it right?”

I remember hearing the phrase on a daily basis in Beauty School. Whether it was about eyeliner, teasing hair, or choosing the right colors for your skin tone- I, the wide-eyed cosmetology newbie (who was instructed to “fake it till I make it”) was searching to answer questions I didn’t have answers for.

“How are you supposed to do this?” “I just can’t seem to make it look like the picture.” “Why can’t I do it like they do it?” Read More
