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.

Wildseed Farms, Willow City, the LBJ Ranch, and the Wine and Wildflower Trail are just a few of the wildflower hotspots we’re looking forward to this spring. I’ll have my camera ready!

lavender table numbers for lavender rustic spring wedding

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.

A Gorgeous Herb Garden

Pin It

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…
