Entries in Life (65)



I'm so unbelievably thankful for all the blessings in my life: health, family, friends, my faith and my amazing husband. God is so good.

Happy thanksgiving lovelies!




Meet my new toy...

Love my new iphone...and my new pink chevron case (monogrammed, of course.)
I might be just a bit obsessed.

Happy Halloween!

A little Rest...


You may have noticed my consistent absence as of late. Once again, real life has become insane (in good, joyful, lovely ways - moving to a new beautiful house, working hard at a job I love, spending time with my best friend (the hubs) and enjoying some down time.) And sometimes real life is more important than bloggy life. I guess this is one of those times when my heart is more invested in other things and blogging has taken a backseat. I'm not leaving forever, just taking off for a month or two...

Hope you'll come visit when I get back.



Birthday Wishes

Pottery Barn Farmhouse Bedside Tables (Pretty much obsessed with these.)
Singer Esteem II Sewing Machine (Need this for lots of house projects!)
Cooking Light Dinner Tonight Cookbook (For those "What's for dinner" conundrums)
Anthropologie Gift Card (Pretty much the most perfect gift ever.)
West Ave Jewelry Classic Monogram Necklace ("LKP"- Gold Fill) (Classic keepsake.)
Capri Blue Candle in Aloha Orchid (Smells delicious.)
Curvy Chrysanthemum Vase (Gorgeous girly touch for my office.)
Boden Leather Biker in Toffee (Size 8) (The perfect Leather jacket.)

Tick, Tick, Tick...Thats the sounds of my twenties coming to a close.
So am I stressed? Freaking out? Frantically buying wrinkle cream in bulk? 
Surprisingly, not at all. (Well, I did buy some wrinkle cream...its preventative, you know.)

I am actually pleased as punch to celebrate my upcoming 30th birthday.
I have a feeling my 30's are gonna be the best years yet.

(Especially if the birthday fairy brings me these treats...)
