My name is Diana Elizabeth. My husband and I live in a restored 1952 red brick home that sits on a former citrus grove in Phoenix. I'm a journalist who went from writing about fashion and reporting off the LA red carpet to a photographer and FORD model. When I'm not behind or in front of a camera, I enjoy blogging about my home projects, and the things that make me happy with camera in hand.
I appreciate old homes, love adding fruit trees to our yard, and I firmly believe making a house a home is a wonderfully fun ongoing project. I'm bravely jumping into the domestic life hoping one day I will bake a homemade pie so I earn my badge. This is a glimpse into my life and work.
Get In Touch
So it’s Facebook official. What does that mean? That’s such a lame expression, I don’t get it. But, I changed my last name on Facebook and so now I’m onto the legal part of it – thanks to HitchSwitch.com, for $39 they filled out all the forms and had envelopes stamp ready and everything for me to make the change. Here we go! New identity! Does this mean my driving record will start over? Cause that would seriously be nice.
Thank you to my friends who have been courteous to give us time and space since we’ve been married. Like Mike said, “We won’t call you, we’ll wait to hear from you guys.” If you have a friend who gets married, it’s very nice to give them space – if you must, send a text to say hello, or even an email, but don’t expect a response until things die down. I have spoken to a few friends but it’s only them returning my call and I really have appreciated this once in a lifetime of newness to get to know my Mr. Wonderful.
Our honeymoon will be in the new year since he has a few medical cases this week to handle and I’m totally fine with it. He looks so cute in scrubs, it’s amazing how he even manages to make it out the door in time when I’m busy pinching his cheeks and hanging off his neck every morning.
My mom emailed me and asked if I’ve cooked a meal for my husband yet. Well, sheesh. I went grocery shopping recently and so far, I’ve made a nice sandwich for him for lunch. He hasn’t had any stomach problems from that meal or died yet, so maybe I’ll move onto dinner.
So what changes once you’re married? This is what I’ve found so far, and I can only imagine this is due to truly marrying the perfect person.
“Just because there’s space sweetie, doesn’t mean you have to fill it,” he said to me the other night as I came home with all these girly baskets, fun things to make sure he’s very aware that he now lives with a girl. He makes me laugh. He lets me be me. He also promised in his vows that he would. And he’s making me into the best me I’ve ever known.
Diana Elizabeth hasn’t gone Christmas shopping yet. Uh-oh.
I’m Diana Elizabeth, named after Princess Diana and Queen Elizabeth. I'm a lover of photography, flea markets, gardening, and God. Follow me as I explore the domestic life.
