The Hammock Life

This is our first summer living at the new house, and I am so excited to have a big backyard. So many projects and work to do to make it a little getaway! This past weekend we worked on the hammocks! We now have two hammocks hanging in the back beside our fire pit. They were just old hammocks that we had at the cottage, but no one was using them down there! They are so comfy and cute, I am glad we ... Read the Post

Happy Weekend + A Video

                                                                     (source) Is it just me, or have the weeks in June been flying by? I just blink and it is Friday again (not complaining).

So I have learned to shop with the "1 for 2" mentality in mind. If ... Read the Post

Road Trip! California Dreaming

A couple of months ago, my husband and I went on a trip of a life time (for us East coasters) to California! We have always wanted to visit the West coast, so we started planning and our relaxing vacation turned into a 2 week road trip extravaganza! We really had no idea as to which cities we should stop at, how long at each location and which attractions were definitely worth our while. ... Read the Post

Wedding Wednesday: Hair Accessories

The world of wedding hair accessories never seizes to amaze me! Whether you are a tradition bride with a classic veil, or a bride who wants to change things up with a fun headband (or both, in my case), there are endless options for your big day! But how do you decide which one is going to be best for you? I never pictured myself in a traditional veil growing up. But when I was trying dresses on ... Read the Post
