Happy New Year




Happy New Year’s Eve! I hope you all had an amazing 2013, and you look into 2014 with bright eyes and open hearts.

Cheers to 2013, hello 2014!


Summer Solstice

It’s the first day of summer! Around here, temperatures are rising around 90 degrees. These are the days I wish I had a pool to dive into… Lake Michigan definitely suffices!


Cheers to the best summer yet!

Cinco de Mayo!

The weekend is here and is not just any weekend! Cinco de Mayo falls on Saturday, which also coincides with one of my best friend’s 22nd birthday. A much-needed trip to Binny’s has us set with an ample amount of Jose Cuervo, Coronas, and lime. I’ll report back with the aftermath on Monday…

May Day


May Day is today! I believe this fun holiday is not celebrated by all but it should be! What a wonderful day… a day I dedicate to flowers. I thought, “what a better way to ring in the holiday than to post all of my favorite flowers?” As I curated this list I realized that all of these flowers make dynamic bouquets all by there lonesome. I am drawn to anything that is intricate in its own simplicity.

My grandmother is the one who has instilled my love of May Day. She would help me compile a basket of handmade paper flowers to leave on my own home’s front porch for my mother. Here is a checklist for your May Day…

Please enjoy the inspiring floral photos below to spark your basket-making!
