Proposal <3

6 Jun

On May 25th, 2013 my boyfriend of a little over two years, Kevin, asked me to marry him!  As promised, here’s our proposal story 😀

Back in the day (when I was much more lithe) I did a little bit of modeling on the side.  It’s been years since I’ve consistently gone on jobs but I still receive requests from photographers once in a while so when I received a request to work with J. Davis Photography, it wasn’t too out of the ordinary.  I am taking an international trip here in a few days so the idea of making a little bit of money from a photo shoot sounded good and Kevin encouraged me to take the gig.  I thought, “why not?” and accepted the offer.  After a few weeks of grooming and (trying) to get back into shape, the day of the shoot arrived and I was pumped!

Life Updates and Back to Blogging :D

28 May

Hello blogging world!  It has been months since I have posted and I figured it was time to jump back on the wagon.  It’s been a fairly exciting first half of the year with some really good trips, lots of hours logged at work, and a couple of health scares but things have (sort of) settled down 🙂

Fall and Halloween Shenanigans!

29 Oct

Learning something new…

25 Oct

Hello hello 🙂 Welcome to my first ever blog, and attempt at learning how to develop a webpage! My name is Charisse “Reesy” and I work in neither writing nor web development. In real life, I am an emergency technician who (dun da da dun!) saves lives every day…sike. Really, I am an ED tech, but the “saving lives every day” is questionable…only on some days 😀 I decided to start this project because I have a burning need to share my passions: fashion, music, traveling, my mini chihuahua “Tank” and my family.
