Bridal Shower Fun!

This past Sunday was my bridal shower and it was seriously just the most fun! It was so nice to get together with women who mean so much to me and celebrate this joyous time in my life with them. Plus it was my first shower! This is my first major life event that had warranted one, and I was so excited to experience it from the other side. Not only was it my first shower, but it was also my first high tea! The tea was so refreshing, the food was incredible, and the desserts were also up to par. All of that and I got some of the cutest decor/favors as a result of the shower! We ate,…

Flower Hour

  Ever since moving in to my own space, I have been obsessed with making floral arrangements! I find so much joy in going to the store, picking out some DIY bunches, and coming home and putting them into a beautiful decoration for my home. Today I am going to show what I do weekly to maintain flowers in my home. A weekly time I like to call, Flower Hour. 1. Assess old flowers Before I even go shopping I do a quick visual assessment of the flowers already in my house. I determine what is still alive, what can be repurposed, and what is dying. This week, TWO of my arrangements were still looking great, minus having dirty water,…

We Moved!

For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you have seen over the past week and half or so I have been moving. This move was extra exciting for me because I have moved in with my fiance. This is our first time living together, but neither of us had lived completely on our own before. Therefore, there are a lot of things we didn’t have, and even more things we still don’t have. Here is a sneaky peaky of what has gone in so far since we have moved in, and some plans for what I hope to be able to do to make this space a home!

Fittings, Friends, and Feasts

It has been two weeks since I have written a blog post! Ah! As I am sure you can imagine, a lot has been happening in these two weeks. I have been working crazy hours at both of my jobs, packing up my house to move in with my fiance, and continuing my wedding planning of course! Here is a small glimpse of what I have been up to lately. FittingsI went for my first dress fitting on this week… which means for last time ever I put on my dress and it didn’t fit me perfectly. I can’t even describe how exciting it was to watch every inch of my dress be pinned exactly where it needed to so…

My First Time Taking Portraits

Yesterday I had the incredible opportunity to take pictures of my beautiful friend and roommate, and let me tell you. It was one of the most amazing experiences of my life! I have always had an interest in photography, but never really had the opportunity to explore that interest (mostly due to the fact I didn’t put myself out there). When I casually mentioned to Mikayla that I would take graduation pictures for her, I never expected how exciting it would be for me. My camera is not the best, I have very little experience editing, and I had literally never done any of this before! Despite all my fears though, I had the best time leading her around, telling…

Tiny Flowers and Tiny Adventures

Recently I have found a new appreciation for the littler things in life–quite literally. I have found quick trips to the store with a friend refreshing, tiny flowers so fascinating, little coincidences have seemed like destined signs from the universe, and small achievements have felt like huge victories. Little adventures this week led me to my huge realization that I love the little things in life, and that I have been ignoring them for a majority of it. Morning Errands and the OrchardA few days ago my roommate had strong itch to go  out and get coffee, and I couldn’t help but tag along. On our way to our coffee shop of choice, we decided to stop at the local…

Big Life Changes: How I’m Getting …

My life is going through a series of changes right now, and has been for awhile. I got engaged, graduated college, started wedding planning, acquired a second job, found a new place to live, and decided to start this blog. As I leave college life and transition into “the real world” I have never been more stressed, unstructured, and excited as I am. I have let my life wander a bit aimlessly for awhile now, but among the changes I am facing I have found a few things that have helped steady my stride. This is how I am getting through. Progress is Progress No Matter How Small My whole life I have striven to be ahead, do more, and…
