bittersweet day

Please pray for Caleb's family. We received news today that his grandmother has passed away. I will be away from the blog for a few days while we travel to be with family. Hope you all have a restful long weekend.

a day of joy

Happy birthday to the love of my life. I am so thankful for the last 4 years we have had together and I am extremely excited about the next 74. Love you more than there are penguins in the arctic. More than there are smiles on a clown. More than there are freckles on my face. More and more every day. Love that smile and those hands and that warm heart.

I love my bearded man. Besos mi amor.

sassy little underpinnings

Equal parts lacy, racy, sweet and saucy, these delicate little pretties from NYC lingerie shop Journelle are super sexy. My favorites hail from The Lake and Stars, Eberjey, and Myla. But truly, I love it all. Because really, every girl deserves a drawer full fancy underthings.

And every girl needs a frothy little slip for all her summer dresses. Truly.

black on white

I don't really need any more tshirts, per se, but that doesn't stop me from wanting all of these. I live for the perfect white tshirt. It matches literally everything. And something about the graphic pop of black on white in each of these makes them that.much.better. Which is your favorite?

Girls in Glasses TShirt, $35

Love Me Tee, $94.50

Lovely Eyelashes Tee, $100 (Currently Out of Stock)

Lanvin Leggy Tee, E$310

Rivers Cuomo Glasses TShirt, Not for Sale :(

And one white on black.

sweet summer blooms

It looks like summer has officially arrived in the South. My favorite trees are in bloom. Oh how I love those magnolias.

sneaky shadows

Bloggers are so cool. The creativity is overwhelming! Seriously.

Color Me Katie created the Shadow Project to answer the question "what do our shadows do behind our backs?" She cut shadows out of black butcher paper and pasted them up around Brooklyn. Then she waited until passerbys lined up with the "shadows" and snapped their pictures. The results are hilarious.

P.S. Check out this Alabama girl who is selling all of her posessions to the highest bidder. Kinda rocks.

love and happiness

In spite of this rainy, gray Monday, this is how I am feeling today.

Love this version, but the original is so dang sweet.


I put this on my someday list.

lottie + doof

Good grief this cheesy mac with bread crumbs looks fantastic. Find the recipe for it and other drool-inducing goodies like Apricot, Sage and Cornmeal cookies at Lottie + Doof. You won't regret it.

much love to my momma

Happy Mother's Day to my beautiful mother and lovely grandmothers. Love you all bunches.

This is how I feel today. Yeah I'm working, to make butter for my piece of bun.

oh lovely weekend

Happy May Day! I LOVE May. The weather gets nice. New sandals get worn in. The love of my life turns another year older. Bliss I tell you, pure bliss.

This weekend I plan to celebrate the onset of summer in style. Tonight, a wedding shower tonight (hello margaritas!). Tomorrow, some helmet purchasing, bike riding, picnicing and movie watching with friendolas (for starters: Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, in order to fuel my growing Savannah obsession.) Sunday, family time.

Hope your weekend plans are just as lovely. Have a great one!
