AND was reminded of this poncho/cape this morning - Joshua and I tried out a new church (currently looking for a new church home) and met a sweet follower who said she knew me from IG and was wearing a cape she actually found through me 💙 absolutely made my day!! and reminded me I needed to pull out my capes before temps warm up! p.s. have any tips for the church home search?

  • I want/think it should look/feel like right now ➡️ what it actually looks like right now ❄️ okay not quite as much but it has been snowing for over four hours so maybe it’ll eventually stick. have you gotten any snow? are you wishing for spring or praying for snow?

  • was going to post this snap yesterday to close out Valentine’s Day weekend 💕 which was amazing with this stud of mine! BUT to be honest #realtalk last night I was feeling frustrated, defeated, and quite upset. why? because a couple house projects did not go as planned and the one I was MOST excited about is no longer happening 😫 as part of the product arrived damaged and the company discontinued the product so no replacements are available. and honestly I just needed to have a little pity party in bed wearing my pajamas, reading a book at 7pm. just a reminder life’s not all instagram cracks it up to be! and also those fun home posts I promised for next week will be one rather than three now BUT I’m determined to find a new, equally as exciting piece for this space and to share it with you ASAP! okay end rant. love y’all 💕 love this man 💕 and love Valentine’s Day 💕

  • heart balloons for valentines day weekend 💕 although they have really been here for two plus weekend and I’m wishing they could be a permanent fixture. I’ve decided Valentine’s Day is my favorite holiday and we’re keeping the celebration going all weekend long. what’s your favorite thing about the love filled holiday?

1. what’s your favorite gossip girl scene?
2. favorite gossip girl couple?

  • decisions, decisions, decisions. made the toughest decisions and ate the yummiest foods at @tartinery last week during #NYFW - just ask @the.herchronicles & @sunniphotography I was in heaven picking off the #tartinery menu! we ended up with the chopped caesar salad, quinoa bowl, smoked salmon tartine, and nutella tartine - everything was incredible! which of those sounds the best to you? #theparisiantoast #nyc #nycfood #nyceats #louellareesetravels #nycrestaurants pc: @sunniphotography
