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
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).

My favorite Christmas present this past year was the planner Russ bought me. (I got a lot of strange looks from family and friends when … Continue reading Journaling & Planner Fun
I've been wanting to make this post for awhile now and since I'm so glad that I finally can, I'm staying up later than I should to put it together. Today, Russell and I went on our first date of the summer (yeah, I know, summer doesn't officially start until next weekend), one of several … Continue reading Summer Lovin: Freedom Farms Brews & BBQ In The Field Surprise Date
Been undoubtedly stressed lately, feeling overwhelmed. Took a breather in our backyard to remind myself...bloom. Even when there's a chance of frost, bloom.
We've easily done triple the work outside of our house as we have inside, including tearing out all of the existing landscaping and replacing it. As part of our ongoing yard efforts, we've planted hundreds of dollars worth of flowers, shrubs, trees, etc. And each spring, we're rewarded with beautiful blooms outside...and hungry, hungry deer … Continue reading Keeping Deer Away From Your Flowers and Spring Gardening Tips
It's that time of year again - when you realize how filthy you actually are - and spring clean the heck out of your house. Russell and I scrubbed from top to bottom last weekend, and our house feels so much better! Truly, everything is just refreshed and the dinginess of winter is gone (although … Continue reading Simple Spring Cleaning Tips To Make Your Life Easier
