Fav Finds: Floral Fever

Sources 1  /  2  /  3  /  4  /  5 THE OAK AND THE ROSE  by Shel Silverstein An oak tree and a rosebush grew,  Young and green together,  Talking the talk of growing things – Wind and water and weather.  And while the rosebush sweetly bloomed  The oak tree grew so high  That now it spoke of newer things – Eagles, mountain peaks and sky.  “I guess you think you’re pretty great,” The rose was heard to cry,  Screaming as loud as it possibly could  To the treetop in the sky.  “And now you have noView full post »

My Wedding: Centerpiece Inspiration

Branches. Burlap. Wood. Candles. Oh my. Since we are getting married at the beautiful Sylvan Lake in the Black Hills, we naturally had to go with a more rustic theme for our centerpieces. The venue is already so beautiful that there really doesn’t need to be anything extravagant done to spruce the place up. When I initially priced for flowers and centerpieces, I was knocked over by the price tag. As I recovered from sticker shock, I decided to do my own centerpieces. Will this be moreView full post »

My Wedding: Bridesmaid Dress Inspiration

Oh man. So glad my bridesmaids love me because I think they wanted to throw me over a cliff with all the bridesmaid options I sent their way.

Pretty Christmas Wrapping

I see these beautiful wrapping jobs on Pinterest (thanks a lot Pinterest) and feel slightly guilty for hastily buying $1 gift bags and tissue paper at Walmart and throwing my presents in to them, just to get it done. It’s amazing to me how some people put so much intention into everything they do. What if we all took a little more time, to do things with a little more magic? If not for others, then to take time to bring more magic into our own lives. #nextyearsgoals 1 // 2 // 3 // 4View full post »
