As much as I can, I try and spend time with my sister (Katie of Katie Jean Designs) and her amazing family. Last night we got to celebrate her husband Jonce’s birthday! I love getting some practice with my camera, and loved even more getting to capture this great night. Katie and Jonce will soon be moving along with their two little boys, Caden and Clive, so I am trying to soak up as much time with them as I can.
I decided to help Katie out and make dinner and a cake for the evening. We made raw vegan tacos (one of our faves) from My New Roots. This recipe is amazing… you can find it HERE.
Then I found this AMAZING new blog called This Rawsome Vegan Life. While drooling over all the recipes, I found a raw, vegan, carrot cake! Super simple to make and came out delicious! We topped it with lavender, pistachios and walnuts. The lavender added such an amazing flavor. You can find that recipe HERE.
And the rest of the night was full of impromptu portraits, blowing out candles and chess….
What a beautiful family. Love you Jonce! Happy Birthday!
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. 🙂 My Place may be tiny, but I am determined to make it adorable.
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!
Once again I am in the mood for some Etsy lovin’! Here are some pieces put together to display my eclectic mood at the moment. I love the simplicity and fun in all of these products! Since I am exhausted at the moment, this post will be a bit shorter and sweet, but still great!
Love the simplicity of this purse, reminds me of Europe!
So while wearing these wonderful pants, I would be sitting in this wonderful chair, surrounded by furniture from this wonderful shop: Old New House who also happens to be the current Etsy featured seller!
