Dating your spouse

One thing that Josh and I have always strived to practice in our marriage over the last 6+ years is to never stop dating each other. We try to make it a point to go on a date every week. This does not always look fancy or planned but it is very important to us to reserve some time alone to talk, focus on each other, and laugh together.

My Summer Reading List

Fellow book lovers, it's been awhile! I thought it was high time for a blog post on one of my favorite subjects! As you may have noticed, I have not been reading nearly as much this year as in the previous year, but I am striving to challenge myself this summer to some new reading material. I have enjoyed some good books this year that I hope to share with you soon but I thought I might post some books I have on my to-read list for the next few months...

Favorite thrift finds

I had to take a mini trip to Huntsville yesterday so my mom decided to go with me and we had the grandest time! One of our favorite things to do together is to go thrifting so we hit up a couple shops and found some goodies.

I love sharing my thrift scores with others and I equally love to see what other people pick up so I thought I would share some of my favorite thrift finds to date! Some of my favorite things to thrift are basic (and sometimes unique) pieces for my wardrobe, baskets, and of course, books!

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.
