THIS IS AN ONGOING PROJECT THAT I STARTED AS A WEDDING GIFT FOR JUSTIN WHICH INCLUDES SOME OF OUR FAVORITE RECIPES AND OTHERS FROM SPECIAL EVENTS IN OUR LIFE.
TO KICKSTART THE LABOR DAY WEEKEND, WE DECIDED TO STAY LOCAL AND ENJOY THE LITTLE THINGS RIGHT IN OUR BACKYARD. DUMBO AND BROOKLYN BRIDGE PARK ARE TRULLY SOMETHING SPECIAL. THEY PROVIDE THE BEST VIEW OF THE CITY AND ARE NOT TOO OVERCROWDED WITH TOURISTS UNLIKE OTHER PLACES IN THE CITY. IT WAS THE PERFECT WAY TO SPEND A CLOUDY AND COOL MORNING.
MAINE IS LIKE A SECOND HOME FOR US. HAVING A WEEK IN JUNE FOR OUR WEDDING, IT WAS GREAT TO GO BACK FOR A WEEKEND AND FURTHER ENJOY THE WILDFLOWERS AND GENTLE BREEZES OF MAINES SUMMER. I JUST LOVE IT! HERE'S SOME IMAGES FROM OUR TRIP- LOBSTER ROLLS AND ALL!

I COULD NOT HAVE BEEN HAPPIER TO GET CONTACTED TO DO THE FAMILY CREST FOR THE DEVINE FAMILY. THIS TRULLY WAS AN HONOR AND SUCH A FUN PROJECT.
Three beautiful couples in my life just welcomed little girls into the world. I was super excited to work on these boho bunnies with hand-dyed indigo linen, tassels and embroidered initials as gifts for them. I loved working on them so much, theres a good chance i may introduce them to my etsy store later this fall! here are some images of the three with detail shots and the bunnies hanging out in their new homes!
JUSTIN AND I CHOSE TO DO A DIY WEDDING FROM THE VERY BEGINNING OF WEDDING PLANNING. WE KNEW THAT IT WAS GOING TO BE A LOT OF WORK, AND IT WAS! IT WAS ALL WORTH IT. WE CAN NOT THANK OUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY ENOUGH FOR ALL THEIR HELP PRIOR TO AND DURING THE WEDDING AND FOR JOINING US ON OUR SPECIAL DAY. AFTER A WEEK OF UNPREDICTABLE WEATHER, WE HELD OUR CEREMONY UNDER PERFECT BLUE SKIES AND DANCED IN THE MOONLIGHT.
HERE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE PICTURES FROM THE DAY.
THIS WEEKEND I WAS FORTUNATE TO HAVE THE HELP OF A DEAR FRIEND TO PAINT THE MURAL FOR OUR PHOTO BOOTH BACK DROP WE WILL USE FOR OUR WEDDING. OVERWHELMED WITH ALL THE DIY PROJECTS I KEPT GIVING MYSELF, I WAS AMAZING AT HOW MUCH WE WERE ABLE TO GET DONE IN ONE AFTERNOON. I AM EXTREMELY EXCITED TO HAVE THIS UP FOR EVERYONE TO ENJOY DURING THE WEDDING, AND EVENING MORE EXCITED TO CHECK IT OFF MY TO DO LIST!
I can not be more excited that one of my bestest friends from college is having a baby boy! Her- being a true Mainer, I sent her a package filled with woodland creatures including a bear and fish stuffed animal I made. I had so much fun with this, I may just have to make some more!
