Color Crush: Rust

I've had a pretty major color crush for awhile now and lately it seems that I can't get enough of it. I'm completely in love with rust! It brings me back to my childhood days playing in the Georgia red clay. It's such a warm color and compliments many skin tones. From home to dress to art...this is a color that I'm going to be obsessed with for a long time. 

I recently ordered a linen dress in this color that I cannot wait to wear this summer and those rust linen duvets have given me the perfect inspiration for a little bedroom makeover. Stay tuned...

Things I've Learned Pt. 1

  • Just because it looks good on the model doesn't mean it's going to look good on you. 
  • Experiences make better gifts than things. 
  • If you want to paint then paint. If you want to write then write. 
  • Never say anything in front of a three-year-old that you don't want repeated. 
  • You can try the same hair or makeup tutorial as your favorite YouTube personality but the finished product will 99% of the time look nothing like it. 
  • Just because it's on sale doesn't mean you have to buy it.

Fabulous Finds for Under $25

One of my favorite things to do is to shop online. My husband teases me because there will often be a package waiting outside our door for me when we arrive home. There is just something about receiving little things in the mail that makes this girl's heart giddy.

I thought I would share a few of my favorite finds with you and guess what? They are all under $25. You can treat yourself and not even feel guilty about it one bit. Click on the title to take you to the link for each item.

Decorating with plants

I have been a proud plant mom for a few years now but am always discovering what works for me and my home and what doesn't. I personally can't care for succulents or any type of temperamental plants like maiden hair ferns. As much as I adore them I have tried my hand at them three different times now and they just don't like me. 

I wanted to share with you some of my newest plant babies and some old faithful ones too. If you are in the market for some fresh greenery to liven up your space than I hope I can help!

1 Book hunting has truly become one of my greatest passions. Purchasing new books can be nice every now and then but searching through used books and stumbling on a vintage edition or a gently worn read gives me all the feels. 

2 I've been going through Grand Hotel on Netflix and am completely obsessed! I'm trying to find the balance of wanting all the details of this beloved story but not binge-watching too quickly and savoring this treat of a series.

A Chattanooga Photo Diary

Josh and I love to take road trips so as Valentines Day was approaching we decided to choose a location for a little get-away. Chattanooga is a very special city to us because we had been there quite a few times while we were dating and when we were newly engaged. I don't believe we have been back since before we were married so we decided that a trip there was in order.

Dreaming of Spring

January through March are hard months for me. They are cold and dreary and for someone who struggles with anxiety and depression, they certainly don't help the situation. I have to try and find little snippets of beauty and delight where I can. 

Lately I have been dreaming of spring and how wonderful it will be ~ particularly this year. Today I donned one of my favorite white dresses, dabbed my wrists with perfume, and scribbled down a poem on the subject.
