Backyard Beauties

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:

Best Friends Club

My 8 year old daughter is constantly gushing over her friends. She writes them notes, makes them crafts and spends her own money to buy them things. What a great little example she is to me. In an effort to show my appreciation to my friends, I hit ETSY.

Here's a few favorites:

Spring Outfit to Copy

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. 

79a11310f7f74f8163ef24b30d2f581b.jpg

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!

Favorite Doormats

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:
