About Me

Wife to Joe, Mama to our three daughters:  Waverly Maye, Avalon Elle & Remerie Rue.  I love fashion & design, creativity, anything innovative, and a celebration (of any kind!).  Here is my story!

My husband & I met when we were in high school math class (he was a junior, I was a sophomore), and have been together ever since. We both moved back to our hometown of Virginia Beach after finishing college in Southwestern Virginia. It seemed right since we both come from families with four children who we still remain super close to.  I am a teacher and my husband is a superintendent for a construction company.

Our 18-month engagement began after I was proposed to on stage at my annual high school fashion show. After a combined effort of much planning & preparation from close family and friends, we had our dream wedding – a backyard, vintage, garden affair at my Great Aunt’s house in June 2011.  We found we were expecting a sweet daughter about six months later!

We adore our three little girls, who have become our world, & nothing is more important to me than being a mom.

I love documenting this special time in my life, as we raise our sweet babies!  Please email me at abrickner1@gmail.com with any questions that you have.

    Just stumbled across your blog through a comment on mine and in the most stalkerish way—were you a Tri Sig at Radford? I feel like we went there at the same time. EIther way–your daughter is beautiful and I love your blog.

    So glad you found me because now I have a new blog to follow. Did you go to VA Tech? I'm from Roanoke, so I know the SW Virginia area well. And your little Waverly is just adorable and quite the fashionista. I look forward to following along.
