Hello darling! It's gloomy out and I think we could all use a little Autumn beauty to brighten our day. So scooch on over to the picture blog for an instant pick-me-up. Because sometimes pictures say it best. ♡

Apples and Honey Photography

I am delighted to share with you my darling friend, Erin Barrett, and her darling shop - For The Love Of Letters! 

I first met this southern beauty when she designed chalkboard signs for my salon. She exudes so much love and light,  it's contagious.  And she constantly blesses me with her sweet friendship and amazing talent.  You are going to fall head over heels for Erin and her designs! 

i'm a midwest gal with southern roots. graduated college in texas with a degree in communications & snagged myself a minnesoooota gentleman shortly after. dutch keeps my fire lit even though his career is putting them out. momma to liv & finn. lover of lip gloss, sharpie pens & glitter. i've loved to "letter" since i was old enough to hold crayolas. i always stick my tongue out when i write & still to this day, you can tell i've been busy when my lips are chapped. go figure. my style of lettering is full of personality, a little whimsy & a lot of fun. i like to refer to it as "perfectly imperfect." motherhood has changed my "career path" & i feel so so blessed to do what i LOVE to do while balancing being a firefighter wife with 2 littles. i hope these designs make your heart as happy as they have made mine.

Oh happy day!

Diner En Blanc II

Monday, September 29, 2014

Diner En Blanc - where locals gather,  dressed entirely in white clothes, decorate and set up a picnic in front of historic landmarks one night a year.

This is my favorite annual event in Indy. It's hosted by Yelp and takes place at the end of the summer. What began as a top secret white pop up picnic in Paris has spread to countless cities around the world.

This year we gathered around Monument Circle. More than one thousand locals came together to enjoy an evening of live music, local foods, and fabulous company. I wish I could gather all my loves for this magical evening.

waterfalls and wine country

Thursday, September 11, 2014

the moments i will adore the most from our little Niagara getaway are of us standing within the pure mist of the falls. eating baguettes and sipping lattes. cruising around wine country on scooters. Pam -  our lovely english Finlay House hostess and her decadent poached pears+cream. breakfast with a New York author who shared that her childhood dreams were centered around James Whitcomb Riley and Lockerbie Street. aimlessly walking all over that picturesque lake town-hand in hand-with no reservations to be anywhere. chocolates and wine. produce markets on every corner. a free meal at Ravine - even though we were going to thank them for taking their time. trying on loads of hats at the cutest little hat shop. the chill of the Ontario lake breeze. being just the two of us for four perfect days. 

we bought a scotty!

Wednesday, August 20, 2014

Oh happy day! Our long time dream of owning a vintage camper came true last weekend! What we thought would be a laid-back weekend, turned into a seven hour road trip to purchase a '68 Serro Scotty!

We are over the moon for this new adventure. The sights, tastes, and memories that await us make me giddy!

This little gem needs loved on a bit before we take her out on the open road and I intend to share each step along the way with you. #scottywego
