tree day! :)

We never had a “real” tree growing up….in fact, my Mom ritually put up the fake tree while stringing lights in and out of the branches while White Christmas played in the background. Then I would help her put ornaments on the tree (and she ALWAYS made sure that we had equal amount of ornaments on the front and back side of the tree so that people could see the decorations as they drove up the driveway!) :) But the tradition that we started to go and cut down a real tree has been one of my FAVORITES ever. In fact, it’s on of my favorite days of the year and I practically spring out of bed the day that I know we are heading to the tree farm with an ear to ear smile on my face all day! :)

And this year was no different. Christmas tree day was awesome….and here’s a little glimpse into it! :) And I also SO love that the Fredricksons and the Glicks are in on this with us! :) In fact, we owe them major props for helping us with our GIANT tree this year (and a sarcastic hooray for Aaron’s tree picking out ability…oy)! :)

MERRY CHRISTMAS week friends!

YAY! :) Fall 2014 handmade shop launch!

I am bursting at the seams with excitement for this launch of my new products in my Etsy shop today! :)

I decided that every bride needs to be RADIATING JOY on their wedding day…I mean, the moments of a bride as she prepares to walk down the isle are epic. They should be celebrated and contain hugging and excitement and lots of mimosa toasts, am I right? :) So why not wear some awesome, cozy attire to fit that purpose? Joyful, happy bride-getting-ready tees and tanks are just the ticket to any girl on their wedding morning in my opinion! :)

I have found that one of my true passions in life (in every facet) is to encourage joy in everything I do and in everyone I meet! So I am hoping that these tees (and new cake toppers) do just that! :) ENCOURAGE JOY in your wedding day and everyday life (because you are “super duper loved” more than just on a wedding day too, eh?)! :)

And a GIANT group hug and THANK YOU to my amazing talents that helped me make this little shoot happen! Dani from Studio Fleurette did the (incredible) flowers, and my lovely models deserve just as much of a high five: Kendra, Katie, Lizie, Amanda and Sydnee! :) These ladies are wonderful…simply wonderful! :)

So yay for new adventures as I keep trying to encourage joy in others with wedding details to make you smile! :) HAPPY MONDAY everyone! :)

June 2, 2014 : Miscellaneous, My story

An island, a birthday and leaving technology!

So I turned 30 in March! And we decided to celebrate on an island in the Carribbean, St. John! Have you been? It was stuuuuuuunning! :)

We hadn’t been anyplace with turquoise water before and both of us were amazed the minute we landed on the island. It was paradise. Pure paradise. We spent our days exploring, swimming, eating local fruit, and breathing in a pace that was much slower than back home! :) You’ve been on those kinds of vacations that fills your cup about 32 times over, eh!? :)

It was a goal of mine to completely unplug as much as possible. And it’s not because I don’t like anyone at home, but I just KNOW that I breathe deeper and enjoy moments more without a cell phone in my face or email within reach (I would argue that we ALL do). So, no phone, no iPad, no commuter! No Instagram, emails, Facebook, Etsy or twitter! It was glorious!!! :) I didn’t even know what time it was for most of the trip…we moved at the pace of what felt right. No distractions. I was able to be fully present! I read a book, I listened to the ocean waves, I deeply talk to my friends and husband, and we leisurely ate dinners…it was exactly what I needed and wanted to ring in this big birthday! :)

It was amazing how little I actually missed when I got home. :) I turned on my phone to find voicemails from friends and birthday messages sending me love. It was like a virtual welcoming committee, I loved it!! :) It seemed easier to ease into everyday life knowing that I was FULLY refreshed and FULLY filled from our adventures. Ya never, know…this might become habit for EVERY trip I take now!

Yay for islands and yay for birthdays! What a trip!!! :)
