Five On Friday No. 1

February 24, 2017

Gushing, swooning, completely in love with this week's weather. Please never leave. Today's high is 71° for a late February Friday, and my heart could explode with joy. Our lawn needs to be mowed, the bushes and some of the trees are blooming, and the birds are tweeting up a storm. That groundhog may have declared six more weeks of winter, but I'm declaring it unofficially spring!

I'm currently sitting in my family room with the windows open, iced coffee, and a napping babe. It's been a beautiful week, and I can't complain a bit about it. Monday was full of sweet visits, one with one of my high school best friends and her littles, followed by girls' night with five girlfriends and life-giving conversation over scones and painting our nails. The rest of the week has held front yard picnics, a neighborhood stroll with a friend and her little, clear night skies full of sparkling stars, and spring breezes coming through my open windows. I think this must be a picture of what heaven will be like. Don't you?

Our spring line of Twine & Cotton candles will be released at the end of next week. I'm so excited to have these candles in the shop. They're perfectly spring in every way! Be on the lookout for them and your chance to win all of them... **hint hint**

Wallpaper may not be the easiest thing to hang, but it sure is beautiful when you have a stunning pattern. Have you seen the wallpaper husband and I are currently hanging in our foyer? It's pure perfection.

I've been carrying around the most beautiful tote this week. I'll be sharing more about it in an upcoming post, but for now you should know that my favorite part about it is that it stands up on its own. That's life-changing in my book. Oh, the handles are super sturdy too! And that monogram?! Yes, please!

Decorating and designing my home is one of my biggest passions. I'm currently working on three rooms, and the dining room is in some serious competition as one of my favorites. The prints husband hung for me last week are taking my breath away. They're even better than I imagined. Stay tuned for the next update to the dining room and its reveal!

With spring upon us, I can't stop thinking about all of the spring fashions, nail polish colors, baseball hats, and sneakers that I want to combine for a comfy, casual spring wardrobe! Like this jacket, and this flowing shirt paired with slip on sneakers (my favorites!). Or this off-the-shoulder blouse. I'm not sure how well this would work with carrying a baby on my hip, but I want to try this look this spring! What is your must-have piece for the warmer months?

Now off to play in the yard with my little bit! You think it's too early to get a tan?!?! I kid....but not really. Happy weekending, lovelies! If you need a side dish for this warm weekend, check out my recipe from earlier in the week! xo
