A BEAUTIFUL SURPRISE

um... haha... yeah. I'm kinda weird. Not sure if you picked up on that yet. ;)
My sweet husband completely exhausted by the end. <3
The girl behind all the beauty. She does wonders with florals/event planning. Check her out here. (Her new website is coming soon and I couldn't be happier for her!)

Outpourings of love overwhelm me. They make me emotional. They make me feel. They make me reflect. This past weekend was one of those times. I cannot comprehend how I lucked out in the family, friend, and husband departments. It's almost unfair. ;)

Last Friday, I was having the most glorious day. Work was a breeze, the sun was shining, and life just felt extra good. I got home after work and was planning on going to dinner at one of our favorite restaurants. Little did I know what my sweet husband had planned. (Mush alert: So in love with that man.) After a series of ignorant happenings (I'm usually so perceptive too!), I walked into the most beautiful surprise party. From floral garlands, to floral crowns, to gold-tasseled balloons. It was perfect. The only thing that would have made it more perfect is having my dear parents and brother there. 

Growing up is such a funny thing. I never fully understood the magnitude of love I have for my family until I got married. I tear up at the mere thought of them. It's a beautiful thing, growing up. Full of surprise and understanding and love.


*Special thanks to my handsome husband for putting this together and to one of my best friends, Amber, for adding her magical touch to this special day.

DAISY-PRINTED OVERALLS

Hi loves! As predicted, it's been a crazy week. I am so ready for the weekend and it's only Wednesday! (Let's hold hands and weep puddles of tears together. What say ye?) At least I've got my daisy-printed overalls on my bod to make things a little peppier.

I am so on-again/off-again with this whole overall trend, but when I saw these Motel overalls on mega-sale I knew they had to be mine. (FYI, they do run a little big in my opinion. I'm wearing an x-small and feel like they are a smidge large so don't be scared to size down.) They're so comfy/cool/chic and I must admit that I'm kind of in love with them. I even asked my husband what he thought of them and he said he liked them! Shock of the year, people.

But in case daisies aren't your cup of tea, I've included some other overall options for you guys to check out in the scroll bar below!

Let's send each other good vibes to make it through this Wednesday. xoxo
