May Around The Web

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!

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!


March Around The Web

March has come to a close and I am fully ready to usher in warmer Spring weather, but not before recapping an eventful month! This month began with one last snowstorm the weekend we celebrated my friend Laura’s birthday, I traveled to Nashville to celebrate my cousin Liesel’s bachelorette & spent a few extra days there with my family, spent a siblings weekend in KC with Dale’s family, and had a crazy month at work filled with work on Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, Christmas & Easter product! My favorite find this month was Victoria’s recap of her favorite interior paintings. The one below is entitled The Pink Room by Karen Kilimnik:

  • I found this roundup of wedding trends super interesting. Even though I’m already married I love staying up on the latest wedding decor for work!

  • Australia has never been at the top of my travel wish list, but Mackenzie’s recap may have added it to my always growing list.

  • Now that I know my neighborhood celebrates St. Patrick’s Day in a big way these might have to be on the list to make for a parade party next year!

  • A few recent Nordstorm purchases for the transition to Spring: this Madewell Shirt and Sam Edelman Loafers. Fingers crossed both fit when they arrive!

  • At the end of April we are headed to California! This guide has been helping us plan our road trip from San Francisco to LA

  • Last weekend Dale and I had a lovely dinner at the recently re-opened Ragazza! If you are in KC I would definitely recommend — especially the spaghetti and meatballs.

  • Still obsessed with Jamie’s photographs and her journey to motherhood is spectacular.

  • Not in the budget, but these earrings are bold and dramatic.

Happy Spring!


February Around The Web

This snowy month was full of memories including a trip to Lawrence to recruit for Hallmark Creative interns, lots of Mother’s Day work, a Valentine’s dinner at Avenues, several amazing brunches with friends, a lovely birthday dinner with family at Lidia’s, and after making this list I have realized basically lots of wonderful meals shared with family and friends! I always look forward to February because Valentine’s Day is right before my birthday and it’s definitely a bright spot in my midwest winters. I made lots of discoveries around the web, too! Did you know you can download free high-res prints from Audubon? I think these would be lovely framed! I also learned the State Bird of Missouri is the blue-bird which would definitely match our decor!
