This is my first year linking up for the Ultimate Blog Party and I'm excited!! 

Ultimate Blog Party 2013

 My name is Stacy & if this is your first time visiting, here is a little bit about me!

I married my husband Eliot in August 2012! So far married life has been great! :)
We had been dating since 2004, so I can't say married life feels that different, but I still love to call him my hubby!

We have no kids yet, but maybe some time in the not-so-far future! :)

Our dog, Juno, is wild & crazy, but we love her anyway! 
We adopted her and she is a puerto rican street dog!

I used to be a teacher but went back to school this year to become an occupational therapist. It was scary to leave my job and go back to school but I am so happy I did {and only 6 more months till I am done}! 

I also have an etsy store where I sell nautical inspired accessories called Dixie Bell Designs.... pretty soon I hope to expand my store to include belts, dog collars, and dog leashes! 

I was born and raised in Massachusetts... where I am currently realizing there are only two seasons, summer and winter, what happened to spring??

I love to travel and experience new things! 
I also love iced coffee, wine, photography, and summer!

I love to plan parties and panic a little when I have nothing to plan! I am having a Kentucky Derby birthday party in a few weeks and I am really EXCITED! 

My family is SUPER close and I don't know what I would do without them!

Basically, I love my life, and love to use my blog to document it! :)
