As I sit on my computer, wondering how steamy this week will be, this photo completes 2 goals.
1. makes me smile, ear to ear
2. makes the warm weather just a touch more bearable.
p.s. this would be an absolutely awesome addition to most any summer party.

I am not hosting Thanksgiving this year 😦
Between my grandma V hosting on the day of, and my mother-in-law hosting another feast over the weekend, I simply don’t get to host.
So I either need to tuck this fabulous image away until next year, or host a fall party asap.
Love this image from Sweet as a Peach. I think I need to whip up a chalkboard over the weekend.

I love Vintage Glam Blog – it was in my daily blogroll while planning my wedding day… but now, Vintage Glam Blog has been rebranded – to Ruffled! The focus has now been divided between vintage and indie weddings, and will include weekly downloads and a free classifieds section!
I’m excited to see all the fabulous ideas, real weddings and projects.
Congrats to Amanda, I’m sure she put in a TON of work for this launch, I’m sure it’ll all be worth it.
I can hardly stand how lovely and amazing J.Crew Weddings & Parties section is. I mean, I get it, they’re retail, but COME ON. I could go back to this page over and over again, there’s inspiration all around this section.
Look at this awesome inspiration board on their landing page…
I used to be a Weddingbee junky. I was constantly checking up on my favorite bees and their adventures, DIY activities and the message boards. With the purchase of Weddingbee by eHarmony, I’ve noticed a change. The bees aren’t blogging as much, and they’re doing these weird sponsored things (Hello — The Secret Life of Bees?! — great book, but having all the bees share a “secret” was a bit forced).
I still go to my usual favorites, but I’ve also settled in with a fantastic blog that never lets me down, fills my mind (and folders) with inspiration and manages a certain grace and style that’s hard to find online. Right now, I am professing my love for Southern Wedding’s blog. Sigh. Love it!
I love the thought of a retro palette for our wedding. The idea of taking trend colors from a previous era and meshing them together with our modern-day (but not modern-styled) wedding to create something fresh, yet retro, gets my heart all a-twitter.
Let me introduce you to my inspiration.
Now, according to James Lucas and Adobe Illustrator, these are the color trends of the 1960s.
The beauty is that I was already planning to work with one of them (hint, it’s the middle row, 6th from the left) but I wasn’t sure what other color to use to accentuate the “pop.”
Thanks to this little palette and EAD, I am on my way (inspiration board to follow!!!).
