Southern Newlywed


Every Friday on the Southern Weddings blog, we do a fun series called “Southern Newlywed” that includes home tours, favorite recipe round ups, date ideas, in-depth interviews, and more from inspiring Southern couples. Dave and I were delighted to be featured last week, sharing a peek into our kitchen and our ten favorite (mostly healthy ;)) recipes!


We had so much fun spending lunch time with Heather of Jake+Heather, who took these fun photos–we’re so happy to have professional shots in our first apartment, and I know we’ll always cherish them. Head over to see the full post here!

    Loved seeing you on Southern Newlyweds last week! Y’all are so cute together and I very much enjoyed the recipe ideas. Quinoa caprese is one of my favorite go to dishes as well but I somehow never thought of adding chicken to it. Will do that next time for sure ;-)

    Pretty pictures! Your apartment is so cute :)

    We made the white chicken chili recipe this week and it’s so good! (and SO simple!)

    I loved this post and your great recipe ideas! It can be easy to get in a slump with weekday meals, but this was good inspiration :)

    I accidentally left this comment on the southern weddings blog, but you guys are adorable and your hair is stunning!!!

      Aww, thanks friend! My hair was being disagreeable that day, so I’m glad it didn’t show! ;)
