If you are looking for a reason to enjoy some delicious Mexican food (and who isn’t, right?), why not cook up a simple dinner party for your family or friends? These images are from […]

Cute and Clever Valentines from 2015

If you follow me on Instagram, this post may look rather familiar. While the blog was kind of quiet, I was overgramming over on instagram. These are the valentines I sent with my elementary school students for their friends for Valentine’s Day. The joke valentine is a printable from the always-clever Erika over at Yellow […]

Vintage Wedding Blush and Gold

Summer means wedding season! And since we started the summer off with a wedding, it means I haven’t had a many lazy days of summer, yet. But it was so fun to help my niece Mellissa on her special day!  I was sort of the florist, day-of wedding coordinator, and day-of photographer all in one! […]

I couldn’t have Picked a better Teacher Appreciation Gift

Another quick teacher appreciation idea. Although, I didn’t use these for teachers at all. I teach Let’s Play Music and we just had our recital for the graduates of the program last week.

Mothers Day Bouquet, Tablescape, and Mantle

I think the saying should be “May Madness” not March Madness. I have a dozen or so posts waiting for me to have time to give them the attention they deserve, but I’m bumping this one up the queue since Mother’s Day is THIS SUNDAY, and I thought you might be looking for a little […]
