Month of May in Instagram


I started working at a flower shop in center city as an assistant floral designer, and I absoutely love it!! I was hired with no experience and have been training and learning so much about flowers and plants. I think that I've even decided that Peonies and Ranunculus are my favorite flowers. 

Bella wearing a floral crown my boss made for her! So stinking cute! :)

Celebrated Mothers day with my family at yummy restaurant Parc. Nom Nom Nom... 

Saw Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zero's... Seriously one of the best shows I've ever been to. They played for a really long time and were completely awesome! 


I made a little coffee table book with instagram photos from my trip to California. It turned out surprisingly well for a first time baby book. I am going to try and do this with all of the little trips I've taken so far this year... I think it's a great way to display and remember the good times. 

I dyed my hair back to dark brown. I had fun with the ombre for a little while, but I am so happy to be back to my natural color! Change is good, but sometimes best is what you are born with. :)

New Booties to replace the ones I wore to death and have destroyed! Yay!

Memorial day BBQ feast! So yum!

I hope you all had an equally amazing month of May.

Take Care

I am anxiously awaiting the new Beach House album that comes out May 15. Until then, I have been listening to Teen Dream, specifically "Take Care" on repeat. It is the prettiest song ever... :)

Best Coast


I just returned from a spontaneous long weekend away on the California coast. Although short, it was truly one of the best vacations I've ever taken. I could totally see myself relocating to the west at some point in my life. It just feels like such a healthy life-style... in the short time there, I drove my bike all over Santa Monica and Venice, ate fresh blueberries by the handful, walked to and from the beach numerous times, taking in the sunshine and breathing in the fresh salty air coming off the ocean.


I feel silly for feeling this way since I should just be happy I was even able to take off and have this experience, but I feel sad and slightly depressed. Does this happen to you? Is post-vaca blues a real thing?


Until next time California... <333
