Please know that there are much better things in life than being lonely or liked or bitter or mean or self conscious. We are all full of shit. Go love someone just because, I know your heart may be badly bruised, or even the victim of numerous knifings but it will always heal even if you don’t want it to, it keeps going. There are the most fantastic, beautiful things and people out there, I promise. It’s up to you to find them. Chuck Palahniuk

Well, hello there.  I am Treana and that quote is basically a perfect description of my feelings on life and love (swear words and all).  I live in Colorado with my husband LB, our daughter Lyla, and our two dogs, Walter and Skip. After six years together, we got married in August 2014. You can find all of our DIY Wedding projects, a little bit about our story, and TONS of wedding pictures and a wedding video on our wedding page.
