Currently Loving

It has been so warm here in Columbus this week (and seems like most everywhere else too) and these awesome temps and extra sunshine have me in the Springtime mood, even though we are still making our way through February! I've been sleeping with the windows open at night and I've loved having fresh flowers all over the house this week...and I noticed some of our tulips and other plants are starting to come up in the garden!

I wanted to pop on here to share some of my recent purchases that I am loving. As I was putting this post together, I noticed many of the items I've bought are a light pastel must be my go-to color for spring this year ;)

Charlotte Tilbury Wish List

Charlotte Tilbury Wish List

I was shocked when I found out that Charlotte Tilbury's make up line has only been out since 2013. Her products are such high quality and there are so many people raving about so many of them, you would have thought they had been around for years and years!

I have tried (and loved) a few things from the line, and made one purchase so far - the Legendary Lashes mascara (which I will do a full review of here soon). Recently, I realized my wish list kept growing & I thought I would share some of the items that I have heard great things about, seen used in gorgeous makeup looks, and want to get my hands on soon!

Currently Reading // February

Keeping up with my New Year's resolution of reading one book a month for the year of is the one I just finished for February. 

I chose The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty. I know I am majorly late to the party on this one as many of you were reading it ages ago, but I'm glad I still took the time to read it. I really enjoyed the story, and if you ladies would recommend any of Moriatry's other books, let me know! I'm interested in what else from her collection might be good to pick up.

Our Wedding // The Ceremony

Part three of our wedding - and honestly, the most important part...the ceremony. It was really just magical. Short and sweet, and super intimate.

Hazel ♥

Well, I had a different post planned for this morning... but last night we suddenly and unexpectedly lost our sweet & grumpy cat Hazel (aka Hazel Basil). It happened so fast, I still can't quite wrap my head around it.

Neutral & Modern Nursery


Once we found out we were pregnant, one of the first things I started thinking about was the nursery. We have a little guest room on the second floor that is the perfect size and location (right by the master bedroom stairs) it was quickly decided that is where baby girl would go. 

I have never liked bright colors, or overtly gender specific rooms for kids. Like, we are having a girl... BAM - let's paint the walls bright pink, or shove it full of princess stuff! ....No. 

Our style has always been very muted, minimal, and neutral - so that is how the nursery will be too. There might be a splash of "girly" here and there (such as the bunny above), but all the furniture and decor will be very modern and you probably won't be able to honestly tell either way if the room is for a boy or girl baby.

Thing that made me happy this week

Happy Friday! I hope you have all had a good week - mine was hit and miss...good days and not so good days, but that happens sometimes, right? :)

I try to keep a positive attitude and wake up each day, ready to have a better one (if the previous wasn't so great). I love making these posts too - thinking back on some of the things that brought me happiness during the week. Please share with me the things that have made you happy throughout this past week too!

Our Wedding // Getting Ready

Photography by Jameykay & Arlie
Happy Friday everyone! I'm here to share Part 2 of our wedding photos - this time it is all the pictures from the morning and getting ready. Warning - this post is definitely picture heavy! 

Aaron and I had to run out before 8:00 am to get our marriage license since we are from out of could only be done on the day of the wedding because we got into North Carolina on Saturday and the office was closed until Monday (wedding day!) I was so nervous something was going to go wrong...I double and triple checked that we had everything we needed, but we found the place easily enough and everything went off without a hitch, so it was back to the Inn to eat and start getting ready!
