Urban Escape

As I sit at my desk, I can't help but dream of a tropical paradise somewhere waiting for me. Since there is no time for vacay, I want to jump in a hammock for an urban escape. I can't think of a better way to relax than laying in a hammock watching the clouds float by.

Beyond the traditional wedding photos, I am just so in love with the idea of a photo booth. Some of my favorite memories have been in wedding photo booths. One of these memories being my Sailor and I's second date at a family friend's wedding. Luckily I saved a quick snapshot of the photos on my phone..

The photo booth somehow fit both my parents, myself, my Sailor and my sister-in-law -- all in costume. Love.

As for my wedding, I found Magnolia Photo Booth Co., an incredible photo booth company, that provides this precious photo booth, suitcases of props, instant prints, web access to all the photos and a coffee table book of all the photos taken at the event. Too bad they don't have them in Ga or Fla..

I also found these super cute photo props from Smitten Sticks! Love love them.

What's cookin?

I'm completely consumed with kitchen wares and china sets today. I feel so domestic.

My all-time fave dinnerware has got to be Vietri's Incanto collection. These Italian-inspired pieces are all unique and great for mixing and matching! Incanto translates to enchantment, and I am definitely enchanted by this collection!

With it's intricate sealife depictions and little nautical touches,
From the Deep Dinnerware may just be my new favorite.

I first ran across these vintage Tepco U.S. Navy dinnerware pieces in the nautical antique store I fell in love with in San Diego. After a bit of searching, I found them again on an Etsy listing. I'm crushing hard.

Oh, and how great is this Anthropologie apron??

Etsy Love of the Day

Loving this Peacock and Cobalt Nexus Multi Strand Gemstone Bracelet from seller Catrocks. I'm thinking multi strand jewelry for bridesmaids is a must.

Cake Toppers: The Good, the Funny and the Creepy

Keeping with the Etsy Love of the Day theme, here are a couple of my favorite cake toppers. ...Aanndd a few others.

Love is all you need.


If we're being honest... this might should be our cake topper.

Can't help but love this little love pinch.

"He's her lobster."

Love the palm trees, but this is just a bit riskay..

And this, this is just creepy.

I get love birds, love bugs and love nest, but love tomatoes??

Til death do us part??

Ok, this is just disturbing. Inter-species wedding? No words.

Again, I'm speechless. Does anyone even know what these are??

Summertime Blues

No, this title does not refer to my state of mind.. I'm in San Diego with the man of my dreams! How could I have the blues? It refers to my current obsession: blue furniture. I just can't help myself. To me, a blue accent makes every room feel happy, and what better way to add that accent than with a gorgeous piece of painted blue furniture.
