Spring Polka Dots

Spring is prettier than ever around here and when it’s not raining I’m enjoying every minute outside! Yesterday we celebrated my husband’s birthday and today my 5 year old turns six! It’s so much fun watching Madelyn grow. She has always had a mind (and opinion) of her own, but she also has the biggest, […]

Navy Lace Rental

This past weekend Jack and I celebrated the marriage of a high school friend of ours. The weather graciously held off allowing the beautiful ceremony to commence outdoors by the water. We love any event that pulls all of our friends together again. My cheeks were so sore from all of the laughter we shared […]

Instagram Round-up

Happy Friday, again! I swear this may have been the fastest week that ever existed, sheesh. Jack and I are attending a friend’s wedding this evening so it’s fancy date night for us! Tune in to my Insta-stories later on to see the rental dress that I chose :) As for now, I wanted to […]

Sleeveless Sweater

Can you see that dark sky behind me? We captured these images minutes before the sky opened up. My husband was actually cracking jokes about how awful it would be if he caught me being struck by lighting on film. He’s got quite the sense of humor, that guy! Joking aside, I’ve been wearing these […]

One Pieces Under One-Hundred

Happy Monday, all! I hope you had a great weekend. We spent Mother’s Day with family yesterday cooking out despite the rain that fell for the majority of the day. The kids and my husband made me breakfast in bed and then my girls quickly devoured every last bite, lol. That basically sums up motherhood, […]

Dressing Room Diaries: LOFT

Happy Friday! I snuck in to LOFT earlier this week and despite not having a ton of time, I was able to try on some new arrivals that I wanted to share. With a sale currently underway, I know it’s our favorite time to shop! There are so many bright, spring pieces both in store […]

Birthday Girl

My baby, sweet Audrey Grace, turns three years old today! I don’t know how this happened, seriously, I told her she wasn’t allowed to grow up! Thankfully, she still lets me rock her at night, even if her legs are hanging over the arm of the chair. She loves playing princesses or ballerinas with her […]

Mother’s Day Gift Guide 2018

May is here and Mother’s Day is just around the corner, just in case you needed a reminder ;) May is one of the most hectic months of the year for me, coming in close, if not passing December. We have school concerts, a dance recital, a wedding, Mother’s Day, end of the school year […]

Denim Refresh

Denim is an essential part of every wardrobe. One that can be worth every penny when you take the time to find those pieces that have the perfect fit and will last for years to come. Some of these include denims that I’ve shared time and again because they’re really that good. I know I […]

True Color Expert

It’s true, I’m now an official True Color Expert! I have been following Maria Killam’s blog (at the direction of my MIL) for years now. I love her timeless and classic, yet bold, design style, and I’ve obviously admired her for her color expertise. I have always loved color in every regard. As it pertains […]
