Peony Season

This time of year is my absolute favorite because my peony bushes are in full bloom! I also got the chance to participate in a very special #My5Days workshop arranging flowers so my house is filled with bouquets. I can’t wait to share more about that workshop at a later date, but for now I will be enjoying all the blooms.

Santa Barbara and LA

After a long drive through Big Sur we finally arrived in Santa Barbara. That evening we had dinner with family and then were off to bed. The next morning we stopped by the rose gardens near the Old Mission Santa Barbara before breakfast at Summerland Beach Cafe. Then we were on the road again!

Our last stop was LA! We spent two nights with friends in West Hollywood. Immediately after arriving we headed to grab ramen and then went on a quick hike up to the Griffith Observatory. That night we visited with friends and were up and going early Friday for a visit to the Getty Villa! The beautiful villa and grounds really did remind me of Italy and all the Greek and Roman artifacts inside are amazing. Our last evening was also spent visiting with friends during dinner in Santa Monica. I am so grateful we were able to fit in seeing so many people throughout the week and can’t wait for the next time we can head back!

April Around The Web

Hello, friends! Currently Dale and I are enjoying a week in California but I couldn’t let that stop me from sharing a few of my favorite finds this month. This month began with a bachelorette party for my friend Steph in Lawrence and was followed by weekends with family, the KC Design Week homes tour, a couple of workouts at Fusion, Game of Thrones (!) and finally an anniversary party for our ten years of dating! I also really loved taking Adobe’s Creative Type Quiz. I’m a producer, “the quintessential “doer” of all the creative types.” The whole description made total sense and I loved being able to take a personality quiz that really focuses just on creatives.

No Rain, No Flowers!


Dogwood in Bloom!

Loving all the spring blooms, especially our beautiful dogwood out front! I hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend, the weather couldn't have been better here in KC. Last year we moved into our house over Easter so I’ve been feeling especially sentimental and grateful. One whole year of home-ownership!
