Showered With Love.

Just under the wire on the week, here's my hometown shower post thrown by my mama and sister.  A tea party theme with special little details (like favorite books used as centerpieces!) and lovely ladies to catch-up with.   

And there you have it :)  

Have a wonderful weekend.

Life Last Week | June 10, 2014.

What a weekend!  I still need to catch up on sleep.  I'll have a full post of pictures from my gorgeous bridal shower, but in the meantime, here's some highlights from prep-work, family time and wonderful gifts.

Clementine Daily put together a great little Guide to Essential Oils.

This editorial from Harper's Bazaar UK with Emily Blunt is just stunning.  She always is, but these are extra fabulous.  via Dustjacket

The Wall Street Journal has an incredible slideshow of D-Day Invasion Photographs and Their Present Locations.

Have a wonderful week.

Life Last Week | June 2, 2014.

Happy June!  It's going to be a busy but very fun one.  To lead into it, we had another beautiful weather weekend here in Chicago.  Got in some wedding planning, lots of errands, a 5K run for the zoo, MALEFICENT in IMAX (which was pretty darn great, give or take the 3 good fairies.  WTF was happening with them?!  But Angie just killed it), and finished the week with The Red Viper v. The Mountain.  Oof.    


{To always have peonies in your home is to know happiness}
{Girl has problems, but Gwyneth's Avocado Toast is delish}
{Running in 80 degree weather, washed down with an 8:30 a.m. beer :)}

{On my cool-down out of the zoo, I got to see the polar bear for the 2nd time ever.  He's a recluse!}
 {A WICKED good time before Maleficent}
{My favorite recipe from Inn at the Crossroads' Game of Thrones cookbook}

New & Noteworthy.

Tom & Lorenzo did us all a favor and documented their trip to the Downtown Abbey Costume Exhibit at the Winterthur Museum in Wilmington, Delaware.  Here's Part 1, Part 2, Part 3.  I can't believe how many gorgeous details just don't show that well on camera.

For the paper obsessed (me), Oh So Beautiful Paper took us inside the annual National Stationery Show, sharing with us outsiders all kinds of awesome paper designers.

Speaking of paper, my wedding invitation designer shared the beautiful wedding shower she threw for her brother and future sister-in-law on Peace Love Design.  Love the hot air balloon theme.

"Try to be the type of people who give advice to celebrities and not the other way around."  Did you watch Mindy Kaling's Harvard Law Commencement Speech?  via Warming Glow

Clementine Daily gives inspiration on How to Decorate With Souvenirs (always makes a house feel more like a personalized home!). 

Have a wonderful week.
