My Summer Essentials – 2015 Edition

July 7, 2015

The warm sun on your skin. The feeling after you jump off the boat into the cool lake. The s’mores that are so melty and gooey you just can’t help but want another before you’ve even finished the one you have. Summer is my second favorite season (next to fall, of course). It’s sunny and usually beautiful. It brings a bounty of fresh produce and delicious salads are a must. When thinking of my summer essentials, I was momentarily caught off guard. What do I use in the summer? Here’s my list of favorites.

What I Read This Week

June 19, 2015

After a full week back at work after our trip to the Pacific Northwest, I’m slowly catching up. For some reason, I am struggling to bounce back after that trip. It was relaxing and fun to just drive and look at the beauty of the other side of the country. I will have photos from our trip soon, I promise!

Free Printable Bridal Shower Planning Kit

May 5, 2015

I recently helped plan my cousin Paige’s bridal shower. It was such a fun party that I thought I’d share what I used to plan it. After searching the web for planning tools, I found that nothing really had what I was looking for. So I created my own. And now I’m going to share it with you, in case you’re looking for the same thing!

Rustic Garden Party Bridal Shower

May 3, 2015

Last weekend, we threw a shower for my cousin Paige. It was absolutely beautiful. Every one of my fellow cousins, sister, mom and aunts had a hand in making it a very memorable bridal shower.

We themed it around the bride-to-be. Paige had wanted a barn wedding, so we threw her something close to that as a bridal shower.
