Friday I'm In Love

I have the lyrics to The Cure dancing in my head right now. Mostly because it's Friday and I'm so excited for the weekend. Easter is one of my favorite holidays. We always start off the day with a pancake breakfast and then it's Easter egg hunting time. My kids LOVE hunting for Easter eggs, and our yard is the perfect place to do so. We have tons of nooks and crannies where the Easter Bunny likes to hide the eggs and the kids can spend hours hunting for them. It's so much fun to sit back and watch their little eyes brighten each time they discover an egg and put it into their baskets. I get excited just thinking about it!

I hope you all have a beautiful holiday and are surrounded by those you love. XO.

Dots & Daisies

Lately I can't resist the urge to pick a few flowers as I'm walking around the yard. They are so bright and happy and seem to be begging to be enjoyed. My daughter and I have been making bouquets of wildflowers to bring inside to brighten up our house. There's something so joyful about seeing a big bundle of fresh flowers at the kitchen table.  The simple joys that spring brings.

I have a quick favor to ask of you all today. I am in the running to be Wallis Clothing's Ambassador and I could really use your vote. All you have to do is click HERE. It is an exciting opportunity for me and I would be forever grateful for your support.  XO.

Charcoal & Teal

My plans for planting our vegetable garden this weekend we diverted when my husband mentioned an impromptu trip to Palm Springs on Friday afternoon. How could I resist? It was such a gorgeous day, the sun was shining, and I've been dreaming of a poolside vacation all Winter. 

Friday before we left, I was wearing the outfit you see in these pictures. I had a lunch date with some friends and although the weather was warm, I didn't want to have bare legs. There's something so fun about wearing colored tights in the spring. They add a punch of color to an otherwise bland outfit, and they also keep you warm in case of a cool spring breeze.

Hope you had a wonderful weekend!  XO.

It makes my soul so very happy just thinking about the beautiful season that has just arrived. This weekend we will be planting our vegetable garden, and we also have our bees arriving soon for our second attempt at making honey. Happiness is all around. Hope you have a wonderful weekend. XO.

Apricot & Turquoise

Apricot & turquoise is a color combination that screams sunny days and poolside vacations. Both colors are so bright and happy, and paired together is pure bliss. When I saw this blouse it was the colors that first caught my eye, but it was the print that made me fall for it. I've been loving prints like this one lately. Not sure how to describe it... scarf print maybe? Or tablecloth print? Either way, I'm totally in love with it. Now I just need a poolside vacation and I'll be set.

Lucky Clover (Happy St. Patrick's Day!)

Happy St. Patrick's Day! I hope you're wearing green, otherwise you're going to have to face the consequences. This year I'm definitely not getting pinched. I choose not to go with all green from head to toe, but instead I'm wearing a bright pop of green combined with cobalt blue. I think a little green goes a long way. I hope you all have a fun and safe St. Patty's Day. xo.

Soft Black

Black is often thought to be a harsh or rough color. But, sometimes it can also come across as soft and sweet. Like the case with this blouse. The feminine black floral print on the flowy cream blouse is as sweet as can be. And paired with the lighter denim gives the overall look an even more delicate feel. As much as I love to wear bright and pretty colors, I equally love to go all neutral at times. The classic color combination of black and cream creates such an effortless, yet pulled-together look that is so easy to wear.

Happy Friday!  Have a beautiful weekend friends! xo.
