Rita and Kevin’s Wedding was so perfect. Small, intimate, outdoors – right up my alley. Plus they had SweetArt cupcakes. So it was pretty much the best day ever. See more photos and read all about it over on Style Me Pretty!

Oh Michigan. I miss you so much.

Last week we took a trip with family and friends to Saint Joseph, Michigan. We rented a house on the beach and spent our days in the sun. Sometimes you get into the hustle and bustle of life (especially during wedding season!) and forget how good it feels to get away and spend time with the ones you love most.

We went to a blueberry farm (Liam’s favorite part) dug in the sand, and sat out under the stars. It was so quiet and peaceful. A week of un-interupted time with my two favorite boys was the absolute best. As a new Mama, getting to watch your child grow and have new experiences is truly amazing. Watching Liam crawl and wiggle his little baby toes in the sand and giggle just may have been my favorite part…

A few of our favorite stops in Saint Joseph:

Silver Beach Carousel

The Lighthouse at Silver Beach

Planks Tavern

DeGrandchamps Blueberry Farm

The cutest Bookstore ever -

and I highly recommend our Vacation Rental Home.

Sally and Patrick had the sweetest July wedding at Norwood Hills Country Club. The weather was beautiful, and they kept everything simple and sweet. In fact, the private wedding ceremony was less than a minute long! Following the ceremony the couple had a champagne and whiskey toast on the patio (this was truly a wedding after my own heart!) Norwood Hills Country Club was the perfect backdrop to their beautiful and sophisticated wedding day. Oh, and did you notice Sally’s gold Valentino shoes? I’m in shoe heaven. I’m so happy I could share such a special day with these two.

VENUE: Norwood Hills Country Club

FLOWERS: Schnuck’s Floral

I will admit it… I’m by no means an amazing chef, but I do love to try new things in the kitchen. The trouble is, sometimes it can be so time consuming, and I can never justify setting the time aside for myself to do what I enjoy. Plus our house includes a carnivore (my husband) a vegetarian (myself) and a little tiny person who only has 2 teeth… creating meals that the whole family can enjoy can be quite the task! So a few months ago when Style Me Pretty Living offered me a position as a food and lifestyle editor, I jumped at the opportunity! Having a deadline each month forces me to get in the kitchen and get cooking, plus I get to photograph food (double win!)

So if you are looking for something yummy to cook, some pretty food pictures, or you want to pin another recipe to the great abyss that is the Pinterest board (I’m totally not judging… I might just have hundreds of recipes pinned that have never seen the light of day…) then check it out HERE!
