Weekending | Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day weekend! First things first, thank you for all of the sweet messages I received for my birthday. I think I'm getting more emotional in my old age, and I teared up multiple times throughout the day overwhelmed by the love I received. I was spoiled by Stephen and my parents for sure, and I received sweet surprises from my coworkers plus handmade notes from a sweet friend and her class. I can't wait to continue celebrating this weekend with my friends!

All the Things: 25

Today is my 25th birthday! Turning 25 on the 25th also means it's my golden year - not sure what that means exactly, but here's to hoping that a quarter of a century is a good one! Birthdays always remind me how thankful I am for my friends and family. For lunch today, my sweet grandparents are taking me out, and then tonight I'm celebrating with my family and Stephen tonight. This weekend, I have friends who will be in town to celebrate. The forecast isn't looking all too good at the moment, so fingers crossed for absolutely beautiful weather for this Memorial Day weekend! So today, I'm sharing 25 random things: summer pieces I love, random facts about me, favorite links, and more.

Dear Nonny: One Year Later

Dear Nonny,

How has it already been a year? And to that same token, how has it only been a year? On the one hand, it's crazy to me how life really has gone on - it has to, I guess - but there are some moments that I'm so overcome with grief that I don't even know what to do with myself. To that same affect, the thought to text you a funny video of Sophie or call you about a grammar question still arises much more often than not. You were my confidante, my cheerleader, my best friend. You kept me company on the phone during the hours of driving I did. And I miss that so incredibly much.

Headbands of Hope

Where did the weekend go? Another quick one spent with great friends. Stephen and I went to the movies on Friday night (a story coming soon on that one...), spent some time with my best friend who was home for the weekend from Oklahoma, and went to a beautiful bridal shower for a friend on Sunday. I just love this time of year so much - warm weather, time spent outside, and such fun events. I'm also kicking off my birthday week, so that's pretty fun, too!

Two-Piece, Two Ways

It's safe to say that this matching two-piece number is a little outside of my comfort zone but I can't get enough of it. Fun fact: I was an extra in the movie Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood when I was about ten years old. There are some flash back scenes set in the 1950s, and for some reason, this outfit kept reminding me of being on the set. Of course, this number is a little shorter than what you would've probably seen in that era, but either way, I get a vintage vibe when I wear it.

The Wanted List

Wanted List - May

Happy Wednesday, friends! Today's Wanted List very obviously has a theme. Now that the warm weather is here, I am gravitating towards tropical and nautical prints and color pallettes. And with my birthday coming up, I have my eye on way too many pieces. I've shared a few of these things before, but that's because I can't get enough.
