Saving Dates, Making Memories | Giveaway

Flipping through the pages of my high school yearbook brings back memories of old friends and good times. I thoroughly enjoyed those years. In fact, I have maintained my relationship with several of the people lining the pages. I can thank Facebook, and growing up in a small town, for that.

What I admire most about the people I went to school with is seeing how successful they have become. Putting the "class superlatives" aside, my former classmates have surpassed the predictions made about their "real world" success. Some have even started their own businesses. Like my friend Katie's business called, Saving Dates.

Disclosure: I was not compensated for writing this post. This is something I wanted to share about my friend because I am proud of her. Opinions and views are my own. But the fact that she is fabulous is indeed a fact. 


  1. I say start planning as soon as you can, and always carry a small notepad to write down ideas, and ask for help if you need it.
