you and i

I am mildly obsessing over this song today. Lovely. Hopefully someday C & I will be able to buy our parents exotic homes and everyone dance lessons. For now, we are living on love. Good enough for me.

You and I, Ingrid Michaelson

3 weeks and counting

Let the countdown begin. Only 19 days to go until I am Mrs. Williams. Holy crow!

Engagement photo by our lovely and uber-talented photographer Lauren Larsen. I feel blessed to be working with her before she inevitably becomes super famous. Also, she took some beautiful photos of our church. Love love love-can't wait!

C & I have the joy of decorating our first place together. We have pretty different taste-he likes clean and modern, I like vintage and cozy. Part of the excitement is the challenge of meshing the two together. This past weekend we purchased this rad adjustable height, glass top table from Ikea to be used as our everyday table in our dining room. I intend to take a bit of the modern edge off of it by adding mix matched vintage chairs and my signature milk glass centerpieces. Can't wait for the move in date!

Our next challenge is bedding. Here are a few things from West Elm that have caught my eye. Luckily C agrees that any of these would be a nice addition to our new home (except for the little yellow table-he needs a bit more convincing on that one).

saint valentine's day

Happy Valentine's Day to my love. This is our 5th Valentine together, but the first (and only) one when he is my fiance. I am most excited that I will be spending every Valentine's Day from here on out with him. Oh how oh-so-very sweet it is to be loved by him.

P.S. Snow days + holiday weekend + 4 days off of work + being in love with your valentine + having a lovely bridal shower hosted for you + sister being in town = AMAZING weekend. Just thought you would like to know.

slouchy blouse

Love this look tucked into a pair of skinny jeans with a slender belt and ballet flats. Can't wait for spring.

snow day

It's snowing! In Texas! Too bad it isn't stinking or we could have had a bonafide snow day.

my kind of camping

I totally dig this. Would be so cool for a kiddo's room.

Instructions on how to make your own on desert fete.

apt therapy

I spent a bit of time recently browsing apartment therapy. Is anyone else a little bit addicted to it? So many great ideas. Here are two I would love to incorporate into our new home. That wall of photos on ledges would be an excellent way for me to group my mish mosh collection of art. And the bedroom art is a must DIY. A must.

Wow it has been a long time since I have posted. So sorry friends. I have a ton of wedding goodies to share with you. Soon, I promise! Until then, I want share these two amazing third layer pieces I saw on Camp Comfort (great read, by the way).
