We traveled to Nebraska recently to celebrate the marriage of our dear friends, and enjoyed the ultimate barn wedding in one of the prettiest settings I could imagine. With antiques from the bride’s grandmother’s basement combined with the rustic treasures already adorning this charming old barn, this beautiful bride’s vision came together as a memorable, romantic evening. As you can see from the pic above with the dark clouds rolling in, this couple got the extra luck of rain on their wedding day, and our warmest wishes are with them as they start their new life together!
In place of rice or birdseed, guests tossed a mixture of dried rose petals and lavendar as the bride and groom left the ceremony.
The bride thought of everything, including a vintage chandelier that hung overhead as the two exchanged their vows.
With some of the gorgeous typography available today, comes the revival of the once-lost art of hand lettering. Together, they’re creating loads of visual inspiration that plaster Pinterest and beyond.

Each day I am thankful for the nights that turned into mornings, friends that turned into family, and the dreams that turned into reality, and that could not have been more true on this special day.
They say every brunette is incomplete without a blonde best friend. Well I’m lucky enough to have two! Together, they hosted a gorgeous bridal shower for me, themed around the Boho Farm + Home, a stunning and meticulously decorated urban farm in Scottsdale, where it was held.
We sipped champagne, dined on an incredible quiche made with fresh eggs from the farm, a refreshing fennel citrus salad, and peach cobbler that melted in our mouths… the perfect day in a perfect setting, surrounded by my dearest girlfriends.

And thanks to Twice Loved Vintage and The Pretty Paperie, the decor was extra special and personalized!
We’ve been planting away this spring, getting a humble little herb garden planted before the summer heat arrives (surprise, it’s here! Today will be 102!), hoping that having fresh foods at our fingertips will inspire some more healthful eating. Tomatoes are popping, mint and basil are growing like weeds, and I can’t wait to start cooking up some of this garden fresh goodness.
Below are some of my favorite finds for a dream herb garden. (And I say “dream” herb garden, because let’s be honest – the gardening that happens at my house ends with dirt in my hair, and usually involves an old recycled plastic ice cream gallon bucket being used to tote my rusty garden tools around.) But again, a girl can dream…
