Lovely Lately

It’s Friday! Woo hoo! Time to recap a few lovely little things that I’ve enjoyed lately! 🙂

… Looking out and seeing pretty blooms in the backyard!

… Enjoying some bubbles with citrus and St. Germain… Oh it was good! Italian Bubbles are available locally at Colony Wine Market!

Italian Bubbles + St. Germain + citrus. YUM!

… Really getting some great wear out of my current favorite delicate earrings! I think I wear each of these at LEAST once a week!!

// Iznik earrings from Turklyn Pazaar // thread earrings from anthro // gold hoops from EAU (currently only available here but keep an eye out! I’m planning to feature this jewelry designer soon and tell you about a cool opportunity for you to shop her pretty things!!)

… Making this apple pumpkin bread and getting preeeeetty excited about fall! I replaced the vegetable oil with coconut oil to make it just a little bit healthier!

… Taking time to admire Price’s man room while passing by one day… And realizing we still need to get a coffee table for in there! I have a vision for a very low, blocky square table to sit a little off center so we can still use the chair without bumping into something! But I just haven’t found exactly what I’m looking for yet!

Man Cave

… Getting to do a custom thank you card for a friend who manages a hand clinic. One of my favorite parts in the custom design process is envelope color selection! We went with 44! 🙂

… Starting a little “clean out my house” shop on Instagram called Hoo House Cleanout! We aren’t allowed to have garage sales in our hood (and I’m not sure I have the time/energy to organize one anyway!) so I’m selling a few things that we don’t use anymore right here! 🙂 I created a tab at the top of this page (it’ll be in the drop down menu if you’re on your phone!) where you can access it easily! 😉 Feel free to check it often! Local pickup only!! 😉

Lifestyle blogger Laurel Donahoo's resale page!

… Having several of you sweet people texting/emailing/commenting/messaging me about Wednesday’s post saying that it meant something to you. I appreciate that feedback SO much! You guys are answered prayer. Seriously. I pray for the reach of this little blog and want to give God all the glory over here on The Hive so hearing that my words have touched your life in some way and made you want to draw closer to Him is 110% answered prayer. Thanks A TON for your encouragement! 🙂

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and thanks so much for checking in! 🙂 XO!!
