Fredericksburg is in full bloom, and the whole countryside is getting more alive and colorful by the day! Bluebonnets, Primrose, and Texas paintbrushes are beginning to pop up along the roads as just a hint to what’s to come.
These three lovely photos above are by photographer KTMerry, from a gorgeous piece she posted on her blog from a wedding shoot in Sonoma, California. Her work is stunning – you must check out her blog!
I made these lavender-themed table numbers recently for one of my favorite, most creative clients, Anna. She’s has a stunning rustic wedding planned for later this spring, and has an incredible eye for detail and tons of clever ideas to make her day extra special – from a s’mores table to not one, not two, but three wedding cakes! I can’t wait to see photos from her big day.

I created some simple party favors for a friend’s baby shower last weekend, which doubled as place cards. I ordered the mini succulents from The Succulent Source, which has incredible customer service and delivered them sooner than they quoted – I love when businesses exceed my expectations!
Here’s how’s to recreate this cute DIY.
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…
