Patriotic Flair

I was on the phone with my mom brainstorming about different table arrangements she could do for her fourth of July dinner party and it inspired me to create a post about patriotic table decor. I think the whole lantern, sunflower look is my favorite - very all American!

Kitchen Window Wonder

Doesn't every one dream about a beautiful window over their kitchen sink? I know I do. I'm helping a friend spruce up her gorgeous kitchen {window over sink and all} with some personality and color - one quick fix is adding a little plant life near natural light...

Totally love this kitchen.

Monday Inspiration

What an authentic mirror -- I love its worn look and elegant shape.

Hope you had a great weekend...can you believe it's almost the 4th of July?

Pretty Packaging

Don't you love pretty packaging? It's inspiring, thoughtful and makes a product that much better when it's packaged in a fun print or pattern, tied with ribbon or has a special touch.

Pat gave me Lafco bath salts in my stocking for Christmas and I couldn't get over how darling they were...stock up on these salts and soaps, they smell delicious and make great gifts.


Citron Verbena

Lafco Claus Porto Madrigal - Water Lily Bath Salts
Water Lily

Melon {my favorite scent}


You must get the melon soap {and the salts} its light fragrance will stay on your hands all day...seriously, you will thank me!

Kellogg Collection

Kellogg Collection opened a new location {5215 Wisconsin Avenue, NW, Washington, DC} and it's gorgeous! I took a few pictures, but you have to go and check out their beautiful selection.

Love the mirror.

Great accent table!

So beachy!

Ready for the fourth of July!

{last wedding post}

I come from a family who loves pictures - they are every where in our house and luckily, Pat is a huge fan of capturing special memories the same way I do...they are only moments, but they represent so much about the simple pleasures in life.

Which brings me to this: my wedding photographs arrived and I was thrilled with how many special moments were are a few of my favorite.

Silly moments...

{"catalogue laugh"}

Moments to highlight the details...

{this was placed on our chargers and still makes me teary when I read it}

Moments where you feel incredibly lucky for supportive family and friends....

{my sisters, mom and I}

{Pat, his brothers and nephews}

{how beautiful are my bridesmaids!}

Unforgettable moments...

And best of all, giddy "I just got married" moments...
