A Pinspired Wedding: Hops+Wildflowers

In the next few weeks I will begin making decorations for a wedding that I am also in. Sweet Sam will be getting married in October to a man who is wild about brewing. Thus, the inspiration for this wedding is hops and wildflowers. Below is a sampling of the color and inspiration board for styling this rustic wedding.

4 Awesome Things

Today’s awesome things post was intended to be all about fathers gifts and activities, but I quickly got distracted. So, here’s what is catching my eye this week (father’s day and otherwise):

This weekend, I’m heading to good ole Rocky Top Tennessee to visit and celebrate family and relax in the sunshine. What will you be up to this, hopefully, gorgeous weekend?

Summer is Here Already

20140416-122154.jpg

Here in the mountains of WNC, we’ve been having some beautiful weather, followed by some get-back-in-your-pjs-snuggle-up-and-watch-a-fire kind of nasty weather. If you’ve ever visited Asheville, you know what I’m talking about. The weather here is more indecisive than I am when picking out pretty dresses to wear on a date night. Yeesh.

Nevertheless, we cherish our bright, sunny days here and make the most of it by cramming our evenings and weekends with as many activities a normal person can handle. This past week I:

•Went to the park with little E and my 15 years+ bestie where we had a picnic and played on slides (pictures 2 & 3).

•Celebrated a sweet, special friend’s 28th at some of the best joints in Asheville, including Wicked Weed (where we had beers with a party squid #squidattack) and Ben’s Tune Up (dance party, what-what!) (picture 4).

•Said “a tout à l’heur” (see you later) to one of our favorite double date buddies who are moving to the big city (aka Raleigh) to get real jobs (sorry, Asheville!) with none other than herring, cheese, wine, roasted peppers and pbr (picture 1).

And these pictures don’t even include the triple-trouble birthday party we went to on Saturday where little E got a crack at her first piñata! (There’s a video!)

With all this activity, it’s already feeling like summer when there something happening all.the.time. in Asheville.

Whew! Just thinking about this weekend is tiring me out!

What about you? Are you already obsessing over spring/summer plans? I know I am! ❤
