Is there a certain place that makes your heart sing? I've traveled the world and lived in several states. Yet my happy places will always be my parents backyard in summer. A creek runs through the edge of their property, large oak trees that offer the perfect shade, lots of lush grass, berry bushes and fruit trees of all sorts. There really are no words to describe how magical it feels.
Backyards hold so much potential and offer so much magic right out your back door. It doesn't matter the size of your yard, we all deserve that perfect oasis. Some inspiration I've been gathering for my dream backyard:
This. Is. Everything.
Something in the front of my mind as I start the week.

Why is summer shopping so much fun? It is the only thing that gets me through snow in April. #lastweek
Just give me all the swimsuits and flip flops... AND graphic tees.
I've realized I wear tee's day after day... and its okay if they don't last a million wears and a million washes. So I just buy a handful of new ones each season and donate the old.
Here's what I'm excited about getting for this summer:
You guys know I love shopping and I love a great outfit. This photo popped up on my Pinterest last week and I was determined to copy it for myself.
Here is how you can too no matter your budget:
Loving this body suit, this top or this top.
Why are white skirts hard to find? Maybe this skirt or this cheaper option could work.
These sunglasses or these.
This black purse is super cute. Another option here.
Not digging her watch, so I'd probably go from something like this instead.
Curled ponytail and you're good to go!
Maybe its the nature of our business... but I love opening up my front door and seeing something gorgeous (nothing tops my monthly Mommy Mailbox 😉). I've really come to appreciate a well kept front porch. First step, a great doormat.
I recently stumbled upon Olive Paper Company and they sell the cutest doormats! So today I'm sharing a few of my favorites from her site:
I can't believe Easter is this weekend! Yay! I love Easter, and Spring, and pretty dresses, and milk chocolate eggs...
Today I'm sharing a few Easter favorites:
Little girl dress? Our favorite ones, the pastels are perfect!
Little boy shirt? Can't beat this adorable gingham option.
New shoes for Mom? You should buy these pink bow pumps!
Tie for dad? I love this silk dot tie.
Breakfast for the family? These waffles are super creative.
Cute decor? Love this garland.
