bekka palmer’s photographs of paris make my heart go pitter-patter . . .
i think about paris every single day.
i’m so excited! i was picked to be a brand ambassador for one of my favorite brands out there: ban.do, the super-girly, super-pretty accessories line! i applied to be a part of their ground project, and who would have thought i’d actually make it! i woke up to the email this morning, and i was smiling big all day. (turns out my friend laura will be a ban.do brand ambassador too! hooray for kansas girls!) you can expect to see a lot more around here about this brand in the very near future!
time for this girl to start thinkin’ of some new accessories to add to her little collection . . .
i ‘met’ my friend sarah reeves purely by being drawn to her photography, and i discovered her beautiful work when i first saw my friend megan‘s wedding photos. i have admired megan’s relaxed and gorgeous style from the day i met her! she bought the flowers from the farmer’s market on the morning of the wedding, and she did all of the florals herself, even the boutonnières.
megan and ike were married in a small countryside chapel and sarah did such an amazing job capturing how perfect and beautiful their day was. i am continuously inspired by sarah’s work, especially knowing how well she captured the beauty and spirit of megan and ike.
i love the scattered yellow balloons! how happy and sweet on your wedding day.
megan was barefoot, and they included their dog in the ceremony! i just love when couples do that. megan told me she bought several white dresses leading up to her wedding, purchasing them on etsy and in different vintage shops. she had a few different options to choose from, and i love that about her! she choose such a beautiful dress, and her sister’s mint dress was so perfect for that day.
and it appears to me that several cakes is the way to go!
view sarah’s work right here. i love looking through all of those wedding photos!
cressida campbell‘s art work is calling my name right now. i want all of these hanging on the walls of my home.
sundays are by far my best day of the week. i make sure that sundays are all mine, no one else’s. on sundays i love spending time in my studio, cooking for my guy, or sometimes just being lazy.
happy sunday – its my favorite!
i know i’ve spoken of jana evans‘ work here before, but i feel like i must tell you that i love it again, and again . . .
i think i’d like to drink some lemonade out of one of these cups, wouldn’t you?

do you ever find yourself without words, without anything to say? i’m feeling awfully quiet today. but happy. so, so happy. i have a new job on monday and i’m ready to pour my heart and soul into it. i’m just feeling quietly thankful, and i think that is okay for now. as for you, blog of my dreams – - i’ll be back when i’m feeling a little more talkative.
