How cute is Kate Bonsworth’s Cotton ad? And it’s her singing voice too!


“I don’t suppose I really know you very well – but I know you smell like the delicious damp grass that grows near old walls and that your hands are beautiful opening out of your sleeves and that the back of your head is a mossy sheltered cave when there is trouble in the wind and that my cheek just fits the depression in your shoulder.”

Zelda Fitzgerald in a letter to F. Scott Fitzgerald, November 1931

Friday Favorites

This week I’m loving:

Such a great place to spend the summer.

Brilliant! Yummy too.

Always a good reminder.

Having a bit of wedding fever. I just got back from my best friend’s wedding. Isn’t she beautiful?

This wallpaper from a local antique store. (In which the owner was completely passed out!)

Ah! Such a great idea for a fireplace!

Have a great weekend!

Good Hair.

Loving braids right now! Wish I could figure out this one:















But, I have mastered this hairstyle, thanks to the tutorial:

I’m Back.

Is it too late for this?

I don’t think so.

In Real Simple, I read an article once on fighting procrastination. In it, the writer advised that one should re-evaluate the day, and the to-do list, at 2:00 in the afternoon. If this holds true to other areas of life, then it’s time to re-evaluate the summer, halfway through, or at “2:00 in the afternoon.”

In doing so, I’m thinking about the things I’ve done well so far:


-Drinking a lot of water.

-Nurturing my relationships with the girls in my youth group


But I also have a few things I’d like to improve on before the summer ends:

-Spend more time outdoors!

-Hike at least two 14ers

-Spend some 1 on 1 time with a few girls that have been on my heart.


I need to keep reminding myself that time is the ultimate gift. I’ve never regretted spending time on people.

So here’s to the rest of the summer! We’re only halfway done!
