Last weekend was the annual Bloomington Bridal show, and it was pretty awesome! I love getting an 8×10 blank space that I can do whatever I want with :) Finding the inspiration, hunting down the inventory, and putting it all together, is so fun! Here’s a peak of what this years booth was all about…. It began with {beautiful succulents} and a very beautiful gold sequence table cover… and {beautiful accents} and {Fresh Peaches} Some {Sweet Treats} The {Credentials} on […]

The Best {Mail Retrieval Ever}

I can’t believe Christmas is over, but what makes it OK this year is that I woke up to about a foot of snow everywhere! It’s so beautiful! Yes, I am one of ‘those people’ who love, love, love the winter season, the cold, the snow, the hot cocoa! As you may have remembered in a previous post, I also love paper. Printed paper, folded paper, letter pressed paper, personalized paper, you name it. So this year when I got […]

{Anne-Marie + Chad: Irwin Gardens} Columbus, Indiana

Now that the ‘wedding season’ is slowing down a bit, I am reflecting on the amazing adventures that my team and I have had this year. Truly, it was the best! This next ‘real’, and might I say absolutely beautiful, wedding that we helped with was for two love birds: Anne-Marie and Chad. They chose to hold their “Starry Nights” themed nuptials at the beautiful Irwin Gardens in Columbus, Indiana in May. I can’t wait to share these gorgeous pictures […]

Summer {Birthday}

Ah…summer birthdays. I imagine that they are the best. It’s warm, it’s sunny, you’re not in school and you get to see all your friends! But alas, that was my sisters life :) I do remember a pony ride at one of her July birthday celebrations…I, in March, never got a pony, we were all just lucky to have electricity, or not get hit by lightening, or pelted with quarter sized hail. There is the good chance of an awesome […]

{Dahlia Blue} turns 2!

I was lucky enough to have two best friends, have two babies, {one each} one year apart. They are the cutest little things, and very fascinating to watch grow into being little humans :) Dahlia turned two on a sunny February day that her mama, Elise {best at being friends with me & best at awesome DIY projects} planned out. The celebration was Princess theme equipped with the best homemade strawberry cupcakes with cream cheese icing! I ate like, three, […]

Trying to be Martha…

In the February issue of Martha, there they were….staring at me in all their deliciousness. {Coconut Thumbprint Cookies with Salted Caramel} mmm…. So, naturally I had to make them and say to myself, “I will just eat a couple, then take the rest around to friends and family tomorrow.” Totally justifiying the whole thing. But in reality, I probably ate over half the batch. But WORTH IT! They are amazing and I encourage you to make them yourself. These would […]

Fluffy Winter Meringues

{Believe} it or not, on the last day of this Thanksgiving weekend, I had an urge to bake just one more thing. Plus, I had some left over egg whites in the fridge I wanted to use up. “Waste not, want not” is what I still hear my mom saying to me :) There is something to be said about this simple, yet sort of complex delicacy. {Preheat} oven to 200 degrees The food products you will need: 3 large […]
