Friday Link Love

Hi, friends, and happy Friday! I’m sorry for not posting earlier in the day. I was on set at a shoot all day today and the hours just got away from me. But I digress. I hope everyone has had an awesome week and is looking forward to the weekend. It’s another working weekend for me with a little break tomorrow to celebrate the birthday of one of my favorite kiddos. Whatever you’re up to, here’s hoping it’s fabulous!

I love you via The Sweetest Occasion

And a little link love for your weekend…

Got Alt?

alt-speakers

This time next week I’ll be in full-out sensory overload, no doubt. It turns out, Alt Summit just has a way of doing that to you. In the best possible way. As I’m thinking about just how many pairs of sparkly shoes are reasonable to lug out to Salt Lake City with me, I am also super excited to be speaking with some pretty fabulous fellow panelists. Namely, Nathan Williams of Kinfolk, Promise Tangeman and Vivian Mansour of ish & chi. If you’re attending Alt, I’d love to have you attend our session or just say hi at some point during the conference! Or if you’re not attending but still want to tag along for a bit of the fun, be sure to follow my Twitter and Instagram feeds for all the week’s adventures!

Sweet Eats: Banana Bourbon Cupcakes

Banana bourbon cupcakes | How Sweet It Is via The Sweetest Occasion

Admittedly with the holidays over my baking regime has dwindled back down to nil. That said, these banana bourbon cupcakes totally caught my eye. I love baking with bourbon! They’re just something about it that’s all warm and spicy and balances all the sweetness in a pretty awesome way. I also happen to love anything involving bananas, at least when it comes to baked goods. Add bourbon chocolate ganache on top and you’ve got perfection, in a nutshell. Make these. I have a feeling you’ll be so so glad you did!

Valentines Day with Paper Society Co.

Guys, it’s time to admit that Valentines Day is just around the corner. Honestly, I’m not quite ready for pink puffy hearts just yet, as much as I love the sweet sentiment behind Valentines Day. That said, I find myself completely charmed by the sleek, modern Valentines greetings from Paper Society Co. The typography, the minimalist black and white color palette, and the cheeky sense of humor really just makes these cards a big win with me. So if you’re not quite ready for the explosion of red and pink headed our way either, but you want to get that special someone a little token of affection, I’m going to put these cards up for consideration. I kind of love them.

Julieanne + Bryce: A Sweet Texas Wedding

As I shared earlier in the week, I have a bit of a passion for architecture. So when I tell you that I am obsessed with Julieanne and Bryce’s wedding, you’ll understand why. Held at Lost Mission outside of Austin, they started the day with an absolutely stunning backdrop. Add in bursts of cheerful color and DIY touches like the amazing cake that the extended family came together to make, and this celebration is truly special. Julieanne had recently lost her mother, making the day all the more meaningful as she, Bryce and her family joined forces to plan a really beautiful gathering of loved ones to celebrate their union. Shared by Half Orange Photography (a huge favorite around here), I’m simply in love with this lovely wedding.
