It only makes sense when we have 20 something miles of paved trails and some of the best scenery you can find.In the 10 miles I drive back and forth to work every day,…

July 1, 2009

I know not all of you out there are country music fans, so you may have missed the CMT Crossroads that aired recently featuring Jason Aldean.

Lovin’ the Look of Greece

June 25, 2009

Lately I’ve been trying to plan a little girls’ trip to Europe in the fall, so I’ve been obsessed with anything travel related. I’ve never been, so it’s a pretty big deal for me. A friend of mine went to Greece not too long ago, and I seem to be falling madly in love with the pure whites and beautiful blues of the landscapes. The…

Wedding Pictures!

May 22, 2009

Amanda Suanne did an amazingly fabulous job capturing my sister’s big day and getting some really amazing shots. Everything was so much fun and came together so well. We did almost everything ourselves from scouting great deals on linens and centerpieces to printing programs and table numbers to making bouquets and boutonnieres. The process was a little crazy at times, but was fun to do…

My Big Black & White Clutch

April 16, 2009

I’m already in love with my new black and white envelope clutch from Deja Vu in Seaside (and Pier Park). Of course the color combo never goes out of style, but the fact that it’s oversized makes it much more practical for carrying the essentials out and about. It’s so classic! This bag just reminds me of my grandmother who was always so fashionable and…

Get Your Bib On

April 2, 2009

Lately, when it comes to necklaces, bigger is better. Specifically, bib is better. I still think dainty is delightful, but why not make a stronger statement every now and then with a bold bib necklace? Check out a few from ShopStyle: Stormy Sea Necklace from Anthropologie $48 and Matte Bib Necklace from Arden B, $28 view full post »…
