a wedding, naturally.

The Pennsylvania countryside, wildflowers, hand lettered signs, mint green dip-dyed napkins, and goofing around with my grad school ladies... it just doesn't get much better than that! A few weeks ago I had the immense pleasure of attending the wedding of my dear friend Jessie and her Ezra. The ceremony was one of the cutest I've ever witnessed. Jessie and Ezra were married by both of their fathers, so everything was super personal and sweet.

The reception was absolute visual perfection. Jessie, a super talented graphic designer, did a beautiful job of adding her delicately feminine, yet playful style to everything you encountered. From the place settings, to the menu, to the napkins and wedding signs, everything was just pure and utter delight.

love and light: a bridal shower

This past weekend we threw an awesome bohemian and gypsy inspired bridal shower for my best girlfrand—the beautiful, Monica Ditzler. It was an absolutely perfect day full of sunshine, positive vibes, sweet decorations, gorgeous flowers, and delicious vegan food. We all love a good themed party, so of course all the girls decked out in their best gypsy threads. Every lady in attendance is so creative, talented, and unique—the love and inner beauty at this shower was overflowing!

Our host, Jeriana, invited a henna artist to give each guest and our bride-to-be a beautiful and unique henna tattoo. We chatted, ate, got tattooed, and oohed and aahed over all of Monica's sweet gifts. It was truly a lovely and magical day.

beautifully done and extremely important

As a fair skinned lady with tons of freckles and the beginning traces of *gasp* age spots, I already know how important sun screen is for my skin. However, I will admit there are days where I skip it because of not wanting to go through that extra (somewhat greasy) step in my beauty routine. However, being a visual person, after watching this short film, I now completely understand the value and complete necessity of it all. Beautiful, intelligent, uplifting, and of course extremely important...
