Hello, friends! This June was the perfect start to Summer. We started the month celebrating our four year wedding anniversary at Campground, we celebrated my friend Mary’s birthday, Dale and I went to Boulevardia with our friends Megan and Matt, we spent Father’s Day at the pool, we headed to Chicago for a long weekend, and I had a few great dinners/brunches with friends. Here are a few of my favorite finds this month:
First up on my July to-do list is to learn to make Frosé!
Love this place setting idea
Maybe next summer I’ll get a vegetable garden going at our house!
Love these patterns (especially the colors)
While Fall still seems super far away this wedding inspiration is stunning
Dreaming of a summer picnic
Some great ideas for the rest of your summer!
Love these cakes!
Here’s to July, friends!
Hello, friends! My family spent Memorial Day weekend out at the lake and I was thrilled to discover the peony bushes still in bloom. Grace and I had fun taking a few photos, it was the perfect relaxing weekend away.
Summer is upon us and May is already coming to a close! This month started out with our California trip and so much has happened since then! This month I’ve been working hard on an internal project on top of some fun lettering assignments, Dale and I have celebrated two weddings (with another this weekend), we spent a weekend at the lake for my Grandma’s birthday, and I’ve been to lots of Holiday Mart meetings and a few Fusion classes. The rest of our summer will be much more laid back and I’m looking forward to time at home and (hopefully) the pool. This month I also loved The Everygirl’s Summer Bucket List. I’m definitely adding the DIY Popsicle to my summer to-do’s!
Speaking of the royals, this month Archie (in case you somehow missed it) was born!
Pretty mini-bundt cakes!
Morocco is high on my travel wish-list
Prosecco punch, perfect for a summer celebration!
A recipe I’m hoping to try!

I’m fascinated by hanging florals, I just need to find the perfect occasion for some!
No rain no flowers, friends!
After my #My5Days Floral Workshop I couldn’t help but spend a little time sketching my bouquet on my iPad. I’m really starting to get comfortable with Procreate and am loving getting the chance to do some illustrations. Enjoy!
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.
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!
