Have a Productive Weekend

Here's to a productive weekend! What plans have you got up your sleeves? We're planning on getting our garden on and clearing out some things with a yard sale. (We've never had one before, so I hope it's worth it! Wish us luck!) Here are some things to help you kick off the weekend:

This interesting perspective about why Gen Y peeps (that's us, yo!) often feel disappointed and entitled, which is something I've been thinking about lately. Food for thought, is all I'm sayin'.

I'm loving a lot of pieces on this Pinterest jewelry board.

This silly video of Jimmy Fallon and Jude Law made me laugh out loud! (Try watching this without making funny faces.)

Here is some lovely lettering to inspire your creativity!

I always love to hear stories of finding happiness and oneself, and reading this success-in-the-making story made me happy inside.

I've been playing around lately with patterns, but when it's also in gold...I'm in heaven!

I'm craving some deliciously warm + free dry desert air and this song is just perfect for transporting me there, even if it's just for a few minutes. It's one of my favorites.

Have a good one, friends!


How-To Spring Floral Arrangement

Guys, spring (or snowmer, as we like to call it since we've been known to get snow up until June) is finally here enough that we can gather some lovely blooms and bring them inside to brighten our space! I'd like to show you step-by-step how you can recreate the same kind of look with the flowers popping up in you yard (or your neighbor's...shh...I won't tell!) Below is my thought process when I throw together bouquets, so you'll find more details than you ever wanted about design and color. No offense if it's not your thing. Read on if it is...


Have you tried Bloglovin'?

I've heard good things about it and have decided to give it a whirl:

<a href="">Follow my blog with Bloglovin</a>

Have you tried it yet? What do you think? (I'd love to hear!)


Have an inspired week! (and Welcome, Friends)

After our family vacation to California, I've been trying to reestablish a routine and feeling incredibly inspired after the break. This week, I've been:

Jamming and busting secret (and sometimes not-so-secret) moves to this song and thinking about this song.

Snacking on these more than humanly possible and trying to not take it personally that a certain two-year-old polished off more than her fair share.

Drooling over these incredibly designed rings.

Plotting ways to use this color scheme.

Inspired by the colors and patterns in this photo.

Getting ready to totally dive into this book. Have you read it?

And...wanting to go back here to possibly live the rest of my days in a cabin full of windows (like this one) and built with my own two hands. I know it's federal land or whatever, but girl can dream!

I hope you have a week full of inspiration!
