September Around The Web

I still feel like early Fall has the ability to put me in the back-to-school mindset, even though nothing about my work routine changes this time of year. This September was no exception, and I am really proud of myself for creating new personal lettering pieces, seeking out an exciting new opportunity at work, and making lots of time for friends, family and fitting  in a quick trip to LA. Because this is Dale's last year of school in St. Louis I am trying especially hard to make the most of each weekend surrounded by our friends and the amazing home we have created in the Central West End. Now for my favorites this month: 

And there you have it! As I mentioned earlier, this month was definitely one of change and growth. Yet the best moments were still the ones spent going on a best friend trip, celebrating my cousin's wedding, spending a weekend with my Sister-in-Law and her family in St. Louis, and fitting in an Octoberfest celebration plus a few happy hours. This September I'm grateful for all the people in my life who encourage me to work hard, and make the work all worth it. Now I'm officially ready for all the Fall activities this October will bring. 

Enjoy your Friday, friends!

April Around The Web

Happy Friday, friends. This month had lots of highlights including a weekend in KC with Dale's siblings, a weekend in Hermann in my college girlfriends, and a cake decorating workshop for one of #My5Days! (And I can't forget my first Easter at home in a few years, complete with the 30 and under egg hunt.) On the web, I loved seeing a few of the paper flowers I created make an appearance in Hallmark's Mother's Day Brunch inspiration for 100 Layer Cake-let! They shared so many lovely ideas for your celebration, take a look! Here are some of my other favorite finds this month:

Favorite Thanksgiving Inspiration

I can hardly believe Thanksgiving is less than a week away! Each year we celebrate with both my family and my husband's family on the same day, which is always hectic and wonderful. This year I will also be going to a Friendsgiving celebration the weekend after! Here is what has me inspired for this year's tabletops:
