this image had me at the art store picking up some new watercolors, brushes & paper…Ā  because the kids stuff just wasn’t cutting it anymore. i am joyfully inspired by the colors, fonts, brush strokes and layout.

hi there.

Raising my sweet kids on the Carolina coastline while spending school days strategizing with entrepreneurs & designing websites. We build forts, play soccer, eat delicious foods, customize our home, enjoy our Labradors and dream of relaxing summer days sipping lemonade at the beach...

  1. Love that stamp idea for envelopes so cute. And that turquoise necklace I want that in my life now.

  2. I do believe it is the little things in life that can bring the most joy. I so love to write a note, a dying art! What a cute idea. Love that dress too. I think it would be barely a tunic on me. Tall girls do not always get to wear dresses like that!

    • hey, if i can pull it off at 5’10” — i KNOW you can! šŸ™‚ and yes, it might be tunic-like, but we’ll just have to own it! i love that you stop by!! šŸ™‚ šŸ™‚

  3. Aw, how sweet and fun! Love it!

  4. Oh, my goodness! Those envelopes are SO adorable. Love the idea of stamping a tag on them. How fun would it be to get a letter like that in the mail?

    Fabulous outfit you put together! It would look wonderful on you. If you get the dress, you’ll have to take a photo in it…or 7. šŸ™‚

    • i know — i have a few foam boards left to make some stamps — too too cute. and yes, your outfits totally inspired me — i am DEFINITELY buying a striped dress!

  5. That dress is perfection! šŸ™‚ Thank you for linking up!
