I woke up this morning to find a freshly renewed, foggy field behind our house. I was reminded of God's amazing grace and mercy.

Hope your week is going well.

Best Carrot Cake Recipe EVER

If you're a carrot cake MUST try this recipe.  The title makes your mouth water..."Carrot Cake Supreme With Buttermilk Glaze and Cream Cheese Frosting." 

My only advice is that you make if for someone else's party so you can get it out of your house ASAP!  It is the perfect mixture of salty and sweet.  Mmmmm.

Ok, so here's the link to the recipe:

Here are a couple pics of how ours turned out.

I used some of the leftover salted caramel glaze to drizzle on the top and loaded it with coconut and chopped pecans.

I hope you enjoy this as much as we did!

A friend and I were talking about how fun it is to bake with pumpkin this time of year. Can't wait to make some pumpkin cream cheese muffins!

Have a great day!

Grandma's Pretty Jewelry

We have a family reunion every Labor Day. This one was different without Grandma there....but it was so good to be with everyone again and we all had a really good time.  The ladies of the family all had the privilege of taking a little piece of grandma home with them.  We all took turns admiring all the unique pieces that Grandma loved.  Being an artist, she always had a bright, colorful piece of something on. 

I am so excited to have these things from her.  I remember to this day how excited I was to get to play with my mom's treasured jewelry as a kid, and I hope my kids can do the same with these precious things.

This one is one of my favorites. I love the airy shape of it. She had good taste.

Loved these earrings too.  So pretty.

Just wanted to share these pretty things with you.  Hope you have a great Monday. Praise God for this AMAZING weather!

Brinkley Wedding Invitations

I've been waiting to share these pics with you! Justin and I had the privilege of taking wedding pics for his sis and her new husband. We are so excited for them!

They have a really fun story. They met, fell in love and decided to get married, just the two of them...on leap year! So, they did just that and we were all so excited for them. They had a big outdoor reception after their honeymoon. It was beautiful. Lots of love went into every detail of the reception. Her dad built a beautiful wooden archway from some trees that he cut down from his hometown. 

Justin made the shower and wedding invitations. Not that I'm biased or anything, but I'm pretty sure he is the best graphic designer I know...

He just put up his own site to get his portfolio out there.  If you or anyone you know needs graphic design work done...He's your man=) Wedding Invitations, Baby Invitations, Business Cards, Posters, Book Covers, etc etc etc...

Hope you have a great weekend!

I've been away for a while!  Wow how time flies.  It's been crazy here.  Lots of things happening and lots of changes.

Justin and I went to Florida on vacation in the beginning of July to celebrate our 4 year anniversary.  That's just weird to say!  I can't believe it's already been that long. I have loved every minute of it.  So thankful God blessed me with him.

I just recently got back from Maryland to visit cousins and was able to hit up two weddings in two weekends!  It was so much fun getting to be with family and enjoy some really sweet relationships.

Being gone from Justin made me realize how special our relationship is. I never want to leave for that long again.  It was really hard. Distance makes the heart grow they say.  Praise the Lord for relationships!

I recently quit my job at the screen printing shop and am now officially a "Stock Photographer"  I'm so so so excited!  Justin and I have been working on stock photography on the side for about 3 years now but we decided it was time for me to go all in.  So, as of yesterday, I get to work from home doing what I love...being creative!

I'm so blessed and so thankful.

Oh, and my pillows are still in progress.  Have lots made up and ready to go.  I am working on building up more inventory and will get them up on my site soon!  So excited to share those with you.

Hope you are having a great week.

Potting Summer Plants

I'm not the best with plants. I kinda forget to water them...BUT I think I'm getting better.  It just takes a little discipline and love.  I was getting sick of our deck being bland, so I went to Lowes and bought up some flowers.  It was really fun to get my hands dirty.

So I took these...

Creative Spaces

It's time for a little decor inspiration. It's always fun to get fresh ideas. I love changing things up and rearranging here and there. Maybe these will give you some ideas too.

Hope you have a great Monday.
