Hand Lettered Baby Announcements

Good morning and happy Monday, friends! I hope everyone had a great weekend. Mine was consumed by packing, moving and prep for a huge project I’m working on today. (I can’t wait to share in a few weeks!) As I was working along, I stumbled upon these darling letterpress baby announcements by Moglea and thought they were just the sweetest way to ease into the week. The sophisticated color palette paired with the fun, child-like hand lettering is just the perfect combination. Of course, great paper goods are always a weakness of mine, but I really can’t think of a reason more special than a new addition to the family to bust out some beautiful stationery.

Friday Link Love

Happy Friday, friends! What does the weekend have in store for you? I’ve got a whole bunch of moving-related fun to look forward to, which I’m pretty darn excited about. Don’t you just love organizing and settling into a new space? There’s nothing I love more than making a house into a home! In this case, I’ve got a whole bunch of new adventures to be excited about and it makes me happier than I can tell you. Things may be a little quiet on the email front for a few days as I get moved and wait for internet installation early in the week, but I’m looking forward to sharing photos of the new digs as soon as it starts to come together. In the meantime, have a beautiful weekend and I’ll see you here on Monday! xoxo

My thoughts exactly.

I need to bake these cupcakes.

I love grilled cheese. Grill it up nine fancy ways.

An absolutely beautiful wedding. (And a gorgeous bride.)

Sure do love me some monogrammed camping skewers.

I want to go to Iceland.

Sort of want to build this house.

And sort of want to wallpaper a room with this.

Love this crepe paper wreath.

Such a pretty baby shower.

Shopping Guide: Fall Favorites

I love cozying up in the fall. I like to pull fuzzy throw blankets out from the linen closet, unearth my favorite boots, drink copious amounts of really hot coffee and spend as much time in the kitchen baking as I can. There is something so comforting about the sights and smells of fall. Everything seems to slow down a bit before the cold blanket of winter settles in, while the sunshine is still bright enough to make frolicking around outside a pleasure and not a chore. We’re expecting one last bout of summer warmth this weekend, but I’m not-so secretly looking forward to crisp fall air moving in to stay.

Shop: 1. Plaid throw blanket / 2. Honey / 3. Pumpkin cookie mix / 4. Canning jars / 5. Stanley coffee bottle / 6. Camp mug / 7. Campfire scented candle / 8. Wedge boots / 9. Scarf


Loving Pretty Pastels

I’m loving super soft and romantic wedding details these days and just can’t get enough of pretty pastels. I love loads of lavender, fluffy floral blooms, and billowy fabrics like chiffon and silk. There’s just something so timeless and elegant about a pastel color palette paired with the loveliest lady-like embellishments.
