JUNE DETAILS

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.

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.

Thanks everyone for all of the birthday wishes this past week! You sure know how to make a girl feel loved ;) We got back late last night from the most incredible weekend in Napa.  It is honestly one of the most magical places and we already started planning our next trip back to wine country. Later this week, I am going to share our 72 hour itinerary!

It’s been while since my last life update.

This summer was a complete whirlwind. It started with our wedding in Scottsdale, honeymoon in Costa Rica (stay tuned next week for a full recap, finally), camping in Colorado, a baby shower in Kansas City, surprise birthday celebrations in West Palm Beach, a month long trip to New York and a weekend with friends in Nantucket. It honestly has been a complete dream and I feel pretty lucky that we have been able to live up our first year of marriage. Patrick and I decided we would travel as much as possible while we can, because we know one day these spontaneous trips will be more difficult to plan. As summer comes to a close, our travel plans are finally slowing down. For the first time since Mary, we spent an entire week at home.  I woke up today feeling refreshed and ready to start the week off on a good foot.

October is one of my favorite months. The weather has cooled down, I started pulling out my sweaters and pushed my dresses to the back of my closet, and football games make for built-in fun for Saturday afternoons. Also, I have had a major itch to get shopping for the new season.

If you don’t know by now, I am a total coffee addict. I hate to admit this because when I was younger I swore I would never be a coffee drinker.   Its the kind where I get a headache later in the day if I don’t get my daily dose. Anyone else?  Thankfully, Nespresso sent over its limited edition Tribute to Milano and Palermo Grand Crus to get me through the week.  If you are in the Dallas area, be sure to stop by the boutique at NorthPark to try the new flavors.

Lately I have been completely home decor-obsessed. I have avoided buying anything for our current house since it is just a rental. I started down the deep, dark hole that is One King Lane and I may or may not have scooped up this bar cart (perfect for holiday parties) and this art for over our bed. #oops.

I can’t believe I am saying this but I have been starting to think about the holidays. My goal this year is to be on top of Christmas gifts and Holiday Cards.  If you are really prepared head over to Minted to order your cards for 20% off today only (use the code PREVIEW2015).  Also, would you guys like to see a holiday gift guide again this year?
