New Digs

So I feel awful that I haven’t been on in awhile! Wedding season has taken over!

I am happy to say I finally got moved into my adorable studio/guest house, and am so excited to show you all a few of my favorite details. It seems when I moved in, I had all my little details put together and in their spot before anything else. I will say I finally did buy some silverware! Progress. ūüôā My Place may be tiny, but I am determined to make it adorable.

Enjoy!

The Party of the Year

Although many of you may consider all those big red carpet events some of the biggest of the year, you are wrong. Sorry to break it to you. But if you missed out on this amazing birthday party I threw for my sister and her husband along with some of her friends….you missed it. Plain and simple. With a vintage inspired, Big Fish, countryside, early 50s theme.. this party was complete with Cocktails in mason jars, beer in the wheelbarrow, whiskey tasting and of course pie. We had ¬†a wonderful confetti pinata, made by my brother, chocolate tasting, bobbing for apples (which almost every guy actually did) and a bounce house in the back for the kids. It was a great night of relaxing eating pie on picnic blankets socializing and of course celebrating Katie and Jonce’s 30th Birthdays. I had so much fun planning this with my sister’s friends Paige and Kym. Although it was a lot of work, it totally was worth it! So here are some¬†wonderful¬†pictures, all courtesy of Ventola Photography. There are quite a few pictures. But there were just so many unique and wonderful moments! ¬†Enjoy!

One of my favorite parts of the whole experience was a surprise for the Birthday Guests! We had some of Katie and Jonce’s friends design special garments and pieces especially for the two to wear to their party. The day before we delivered the garments with a formal invitation to the party! They had known ahead of time where and when the party was…but none of the theme or decorating details and it was killing them! Katie’s dress is by the wonderful¬†Monique Sandoval from Ouma, and her headpiece is by the talented¬†Jenn Wood from Mignonne Handmade. Jonce’s bow tie is from the local wonder Aaron Kimberlin and his bowties at Dapper and Dash.

Thanks to everyone who came! It was a blast!

That day we celebrate our Mommas

So tomorrow is Mother’s day! Mom’s I must say, are amazing. Watching my mom and my sister elegantly handle all of their responsibilities, makes me that much more excited to be a mom myself! ¬†This little collection makes me think of my mother, and all the mothers out there. Their warm heart and¬†unyielding¬†grace makes for one amazing lady. After getting to finally spend a Saturday doing nothing in particular, I scoured the thrift shops around me and got caught on a vintage rage. Today I was inspired ¬†is eco-friendly products and vintage wonderfulness of course!

Enjoy! And go call your mom if you aren’t with her right now!

You know the type. The person who only buys their shoes from Italy, their wine from France and their watches from Switzerland. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that. I personally own a jacket from Italy, a ¬†watch from Switzerland … Continue reading
