12 Happies du Jour


Happy Tuesday!  This is one of my favorite days of the week on the blog, but I think I may have mentioned that.  This week we are cramming in lots of meetings, doctor appointments and other school stuff so we can leave down on Friday for the beach!!!  It is a super busy week but all I can see at the end is a chair in the surf with books on repeat. I haven't started packing yet, but I do plan to pack my new Jacks, they will be making the cut for sure!  I am not going to Palm Beach, but they were darling in Winter Park so off to Sarasota they go!

One of my sweet friends posted this two weeks ago sharing that her husband is battling cancer.  I love Ashley and my heart was so heavy when she shared the news with me.  I truly adore her and her joy is so apparent in everything she does.  Her husband is just as precious and I know the feelings she feels and my heart is led to share her story.  Please join me in lifting them in prayer through this journey.  I want her to feel the love and strength of all of you during their new chapter!

One of my favorite brand sponsors has some darling new items.  I am loving these earrings + these earrings and this super darling bag.  Kristina is amazing and lives in one of my favorite places.  Have you ever visited Sarasota ... it is another fabulous Florida destination you should add to your list.  

Oh, and she also has this fabulous cross body bag at a great price!


I got a ton of photos back from our Haiti trip last month and I added more to the already photo heavy blog post but there were so many good ones.  If you are up for a bit of a read, there are some incredible photos.  We were so lucky to have one of the parents take their big camera and she captured so many great shots of the kids and us.  #yourockNicole


I mean, how amazing is he?  I miss John so very much!

I am currently obsessing over the wide leg pants currently available, how about these? 



I really like how these yellow bags have their own personal touches. one has a tortoise strap, one a solid yellow and the other a handbag.  Aren't they darling, I would totally wear these on repeat. 



Does anybody else live for their local DryBar?? I really love having my hair blown out and since I have dry hair my blowouts for three to four days.  Recently I snagged more of their products to use at home and I have not regretted it one bit. I was already using the dry shampoo and dry conditioner but I added this and this and it has made all the difference in my home blowouts.  I linked all the products I own from DryBar below ... you will love them all.


Do you watch Southern Charm?  I don't miss an episode and I found this article about the fabulous Patricia so interesting.  My friend Andrea also blogged about her here and I loved it.  Well, the truth is I love every single thing Andrea writes, her blog is amazing!


My darling friend Madeline has added a new design (darling lines + monograms) to her backpack line that I know you will love.  My girl has already placed her order for her first day of eighth grade which happens in two short weeks.  These bags are the best and I am so excited for the expansion that Madeline is seeing.  She is the most darling girl and you will love her and her bags!

Did you see yesterday's blog post ... I am officially on board with BeautyCounter and I am super excited.  I ordered this sunscreen yesterday for our beach trip and can't wait to try it out.  I got both the stick + this lotion and I will report back on both.  I have read nothing but great reviews and I am thrilled to be using sun protection with nothing extra and nothing harmful.  With a ton of sun activities planned I need to be on my A game. I am also very committed to only buying safe sunscreen since my girl wears it all over her body almost every single day. 

I have linked all my favorites from the Nordstrom sale just in case you wish to know what I loved.  I have added a few things in that are truly a great buy ... like these candles and can you believe these super cute shoes!  #yesplease


One last thing regarding Nordstrom ... if you are in need of a raincoat this one is darling and Barbour always gets five stars in my book!

Hope your day is amazing ... love each of you!
