because life should be eventful

 I just LOVE making homemade Christmas decorations. My brother came up with this idea for our front porch and I just LOVE how they turned out! Homemade touches for Christmas always make it so special and unique! Try this idea out – plus if you have kids, they will love making this. We just googled a bunch of different snowflake shapes to make!

Enjoy! Xo

What you’ll need:

Glue gun with glue sticks

Popsicle sticks

Ribbon or fishing wire

Spray paint

Just thought I would share a few of my favorite things lately!

Handmade wishing tree tags that I can’t wait to have our guests and loved ones write well wishes on at our wedding.

I know this picture has been used a lot but these blueberries are so delicious. I look forward to them everyday for my morning snack. 


These kitschy salt and pepper shakers add a bit of retro to our dining room table. 


Watching our new little family member (Handsome will have a fit when he sees this) play makes me laugh so much. Especially when our great dane gets down on her level to play.

I have a feeling these teacup candles I made for our wedding will most definitely find their way back to our house after the event. They turned out so beautifully (post on how to make them is coming!). 


So, I changed my mind on the Top 5 and instead went with 4 so that it was easier to make a collage but also because I can call it the Fabulous 4! 🙂

Enjoy! Xo

1. Everyone and everything is so technology based today that I love the idea of having our guests Instagram any photos they might take at our wedding. Then we can share in them all as well!

2. I adore an outfit of all neutrals. Now to find an adorable pleated khaki skirt!

3. Homemade ketchup eliminates all of the sodium and sugar in the store bought stuff. I need to try this during the summer when tomatoes are ripe!

4. I am obsessed with succulents. Plus, they seem to be the only plant that I can grow and maintain successfully. This picture inspires me to make an indoor terrarium  this summer!
