Step Into Spring

Happy Wednesday! I hope everyone is doing well! We’ve been soaking up spring ever since it started. This past weekend we visited friends in Chattanooga and it honestly felt like summer. We walked around the downtown art district and across the walking bridge, which Cove absolutely loved. I’m a huge fan our how Chattanooga is an active and walking city. So many people were out walking, riding bikes and playing in Coolidge Park. We will definitely be back soon to take Cove to the aquarium. Although spring means lots of pastels and cool colors, I still love wearing neutral and my…

Lavender Love | Giveaway

I’m so over the moon it’s spring. I’m even more excited to experience it all with Cove this year. Easter, planting in the yard, strawberry picking and all the other fun things that come with spring time. This past week we were outside pretty much every day, all day. I started clearing out our flower beds and planted a few rose bushes, along with some other plants, to fill it up before we mulched. This year, my mom bought me another lavender bush to go with the the smaller one I bought from Pikes. I’m slightly obsessed with lavender… We use the…

Thoughts On Things: Callaway Gardens, Blooming Where You’re Planted & Things I’m Loving Right Now

This past weekend was full of really fun activities which left me inspired and rejuvenated. I kicked off the weekend with two really fun events, one hosted by The Honest Co. / Bump Club and another by Little Black Dress Little Red Wagon. Then I capped off the weekend with a Ladies Retreat, hosted by my church at Callaway Gardens. I hadn’t been to Callaway since I was a little girl and when I got there, I quickly fell in love all over again. It was such a beautiful place full of butterfly gardens, sweet tucked away paths with flowers and just an…

All Day Kiss Proof and Thoughts From The Heart

Its not quite warm enough to pull out my shorts yet, but I have pulled out all my spring tops and floral pieces. I figured if my backyard is blooming, it’s acceptable. With the weather being chilly in the mornings but warming up in the day, my favorite trend is to wear a lighter peasant top and throw an oversized cardigan over it for when the temps are lower. I fell in love with this adorable key hole top, which is lightweight and has the perfect colored pattern, paired with these super comfy suede booties from Guilty Soles. Im sure…

Pieces with Meaning

Daylight Savings is one of my favorite days of the year. No joke. I don’t even care that we loose an hour of sleep because I am so pumped for a later sunset. One of my favorite things to do every spring / summer day is sit on the back porch and watch the sunset. And if I don’t get to be outside, I open up all the blinds and watch it as I cook and eat dinner. The other day we spent the afternoon in Chattanooga right at golden hour. It was stunning to see the sun set over the…

Spring Fling

Longer days. More sunshine. Full blooms. There is already so much to love about spring, but adding your baby to the mix is about the best thing ever. Experiencing things for the first time with him is so much more fun. Easter was the past weekend, and we had such a great day! Filling Cove’s first Easter basket with little boy goodies was such a treat for me. We dressed him in this adorable outfit my mom picked out for him when I was twenty weeks and the suspenders had me melting. I can’t believe next year he will be hunting…

Sprucing Up For Easter

Easter is one of the best times of the year! Winter starts to fade away, your plants start to bloom, and there are bunnies and lambs in every department store. It brings me so much joy. I don’t decorate too much, but I do love to spruce up the house with some springy accents.   I hope you all have a wonderful week!
