Long summer days, holidays, a cold glass of rosé and salt water…does it get any better? There is something special about the high summer season and the month of July is one of my favorites.Read more
We are little over halfway through June and I can’t believe how quickly this year is flying by. After taking some time off to reflect on this space, I finally have a clear vision again.
For the first time, after 9 years of blogging, I was feeling the burnt out and I needed a little break. I didn’t know it would last this long, but I am glad I took the time and really focused on what I wanted. I spent more time with friends, my husband and focused on quality time instead of trying to capture the moment. Did I miss it? At first, totally! But as the weeks went on, it was nice to just live my life and not feel the need to post an Instastory on my daily walk with the pups. This being said, capturing beautiful moments makes me happy and I am ready to get back to it. I missed my community here, my conversations on Instagram with friends, and creating just for myself. In all honesty, the last few months all of my creativity was being pulled into my other job (that I should mention I am absolutely LOVING!). My cup has been overflowing creating work for other people instead of myself and I was totally content until I realized I was missing a little piece of myself––this space that I have nurtured for the last nine years.Read more
Party people, it’s May! This month kicks off with a reason to celebrate (you know I love a good theme!) and ends with the unofficially start to summer! Sunshine, late night dinners with friends and a reason to sip margaritas, May always pulls on my heart strings.Read more
Have you missed me? Between prepping for the opening of Amy Berry Home, a trunk show, and some really exciting photoshoots, it has been all work around these neck of the woods lately. I feel like I have so many updates to share with y’all and lots of new content coming to the blog next week…Read morE

And I blinked and here we are. Hello, April. I am welcoming the new month with open arms and hopes of lots of sunshine. I don’t have a favorite month, but there is something so refreshing about April. It’s the start of the new season, longer days, and a freshness in the air.Read more
Happy, happy Monday. After spending the weekend in Austin with my fam, I am feeling refreshed, full, and ready for a great week ahead.Read more
There is nothing like a girls’ night to make the week just a little brighter. We started our Thursday girl’s night on a whim and it is for sure the best part of my week. It typically involves take out and a post-gym look, but sometimes it’s fun to jazz things up a bit. I invited the gals for a little pre-spring fling to use my entertaining pieces from Anthropologie’s new collection.

Somehow I blinked and it’s already March. This year has been full of fun filled weeks and weekends. It’s flying by and while I am not wanting time to stop, this month I plan to be more intentional with my days. The last two months, I have noticed a shift in my mindset since I started focusing on being in the moment.Read more
We all love Amazon. Okay, well that’s a major assumption (maybe some of you don’t), but really I don’t know one person that haven’t ordered at least one item on Amazon. A new package arrives at our home at least three times a week (read: Patrick’s late night ordering. hehe) But in all honesty, it just makes everything extremely easy and convenient. I even find myself adding unnecessary items to my cart, but hey two-day free shipping makes those impulse buys just a little more fun.

Happy Friday, friends! I hope yesterday was filled with a little extra love. We ended up having pizza night at our house with some friends and had a great night. Earlier this week, I mentioned re-arranging our living room. This weekend I am planning to style our new coffee table (post coming soon) and enjoying some extra R&R on the sofa with a side of Netflix. ;)Read more
