Gingham, Ruffles + Scallops

I am thrilled it's Friday and the first Friday of spring at that, one that will require a happy hour alfresco for sure.  It has been super sunny all week and I have loved every single day of it.  It is still a bit chilly, but with the sun shining I am happier than I have been in months.  I am so ready to embrace all the long evenings with the late sunsets, oh yes, and a cocktail in hand just makes it even better.


Oh Happy Spring!

I am literally giddy this morning knowing that spring is here.  There may be a little nip in the air, but the blue sky and the sun shining has me filled with inspiration and dreaming of so many things that I want to do this spring.  Even though Winter isn't my favorite season it usually doesn't make me sad like this one did. It was grey so many of the days and the rain was literally unending.  I can not tell you how much moss we have in our yard and it almost felt as if it was growing on me as well.  I love a good rain storm, especially at night, but rain all day every day is honestly just awful.  The upside to the rain is all the beautiful green (even moss) that we have now and the trees in bloom and the tulips which are just beginning to show their pretty little blooms.  I can not say it enough ... happy spring!


12 Happies du Jour

I hope you are having the most amazing signs of spring that we are in Atlanta.  I am truly so inspired by the sun, the blooming trees and I am even embracing the pollen because I know it means the yards and trees will be gorgeous in just weeks.  Here's to the end of the bitter cold, snow and ice!


Amazing Sale At Frontgate

With warmer temperatures finally showing up along with the blooming trees and the sun shining I am very ready for outdoor soirees.  I absolutely love anything alfresco and our screened porch allows us time in the morning over coffee, lazy afternoons reading and playing games, and evenings spent watching sunsets and enjoying happy hour.  I partnered with Frontgate last year to freshen up the space and the pieces we chose together are perfect, and look brand new even almost a year later. I love working with the amazing people at Frontgate who always have the best options and most incredible selection for both inside and out. 💙


Weekly Wellness ... Spring Cleaning

Anyone else getting really excited about the longer days and slightly warmer temperatures?  The sun shining the last few days for way longer than normal is just life giving.  As the warmer temperatures are starting to stay in Atlanta I am becoming more and more excited about spring.  For some reason it has rained on repeat in Georgia resulting in record rainfall and it, along with winter, has brought on my first ever slight case of winter blues.  The onset of spring is so welcome and I intend to celebrate it with some spring cleaning, fluffing, and more than one spring dinner.


A Great Source For Blue + White

We all love blue and white porcelain and I am sure I am not the only one hunting great pieces to add to my collection.  I find so many great pieces when I am antiquing but I am asked quite a lot about great sources for finding blue and white pieces.  I have found a source you will love, and the prices are truly insane. I found jars, kitchen pieces, lamps, and even a fabulous book. Get ready to add to cart + stock up, these pieces and prices are fabulous.

Happy Tuesday to you all ... I am heading home this morning from Nashville and a super fun project that I am sure you spotted on Instastories yesterday.  I love being with creative and fabulous people and this collaboration was just that. You must follow my sweet friend Mary Huddleston who is not only so very talented but also so very funny. 💗


The Best Jeans To Add To Your Life

Happy Friday to you!  I am so ready for this weekend I can almost not even handle it.  A little down time + some extra good family time + wearing my new favorite jeans on repeat.  Does it get any better?  I am so excited to share with you that I have purchased and am wearing my second favorite pair of jeans I have bought in a few months time.  I am pretty picky when it comes to jeans and these babies (although I was pretty skeptical they could beat the last pair) are truly fabulous.  They are soft, just the perfect amount of stretch, and the worn spots + the ankle detail make them honestly my new favorites.
