Hi all. It's been a little while since I've posted, so I thought I should write an "official" post about my absence. When I started this blog a few years ago, I was exploring different outlets of creativity in my free time. I had just started doing more crafts, and my day job was pretty … Continue reading Farewell for Now
Almost heaven, West Virginia...Russ and I are both Mountaineers at heart, and this weekend we spent some time in the good 'ol mountain state, hiking and chasing hot air balloons. When we were in college, one of our favorite fall traditions was the Mountaineer Balloon Festival. Sadly, the festival hasn't been put on for a number … Continue reading Wild & Wonderful Weekend
Yesterday was our 4th wedding anniversary - yay! We didn't kill each other yet! We celebrated by getting takeout from our favorite restaurant and having a quiet dinner at home. And we also decided to plan a special trip for our 5th anniversary next year - we hope to go to Europe! Getting to use my … Continue reading Happy Anniversary To Us
It's a cloudy Saturday morning, and we are celebrating with pumpkin chocolate chip pancakes and Netflix. It's a perfect day so far.
I told y'all about the surprise summer dates that I had planned for Russell throughout the summer...what I didn't tell you is that they were my cover story! The entire time, I was planning a surprise 30th birthday party for Russ and didn't want him to know. I set up a bunch of other surprise … Continue reading Cheers & Beers to 30 Years Surprise Birthday Party
I've wanted colorful hair my entire life. When I was a little kid, I used to hoard those Halloween colored-hair-spray-in-a-can contraptions that would turn your whole head (and your brush, bathroom, clothes, and lungs) hot pink. Arguably, the best time to experiment with wild hair color would have been high school or college, but I … Continue reading Saying Goodbye to My Roaring 20s with (subtle) Sunset Hair
A few weeks ago, the hubs and I had another surprise summer date at my favorite local restaurant. Bistro19 is where my bridal shower was held, and where Russ and I celebrate every special occasion - each anniversary, birthday, even a good day at work because I don't believe in looking very hard for reasons to … Continue reading Summer Lovin: Peach Tasting Surprise Date
Just a little #flashbackfriday action for you...four years ago today, my best friends hosted the most amazing bridal shower for me - southern peach themed, of course. (I admit, I have a problem). It was such a nice day, at my favorite restaurant, with my favorite people. Now that everyone is growing up and having babies … Continue reading Sweet as a Peach Bridal Shower
My favorite flower...it's always so happy. Good inspiration for today. Be colorful. Be bold. Have fun. Smile. Get some sunshine (but wear sunblock). Live. Bloom.
Stood in 94 degree heat today to buy two boxes of fresh Georgia peaches from The Peach Truck. I can't wait until they are ripe enough to devour and to can!
