Today is a special day for Jesse and I. Two years ago we got married, and so far so good. The saying "time flies when you're having fun" is very true, and I'm grateful to have found someone to have a blast with for the rest of my life. Now, I don't want to lead you to believe that our marriage is sooo perfect [I think i've talked about this before?] because it's not. Plain & Simple. We both have our strengths and weaknesses and we are pretty good about owning those, acknowledging them when the time is right [in "heated" discussions] and helping each be better and learning from our mistakes. I've said it many times and I'll say it again....but Jesse has the most patience out of anyone i've ever met. And I know 100% without a doubt that God sent me to him for just that trait a lone! Because of my upbringing and the un-glamorous habits/baggage? it left me with and that i'm constantly trying to overcome...with Jesse's help, in already 2 short years i've seen major improvements within myself. This is what marriage is all about, and thankfully this time around I am with someone who is on the same team as me and I on his! Jesse Man ohhh Jesse Man...I love you so much! Happy 2 years! xo

Continuing my love for bloggers:
Lena, is definitely hands down one of my very favorite designers. Those who know me pretty well know that I reference her a lot and love to tell you about my short summer I spent as her intern. I really looked up to Lena then, and still do to this day... obviously I can't say enough good things about Lena but one of my favorite things about her is the attention to detail and the exquisite craftsmanship she exudes....and on top of that she is so very gracious, witty, and calming. A handful of times she has blogged about my items w/out me knowing and I appreciate that so much, thank you Lena! :) xo
Lena, has two very beautifully curated blogs: Lena Corwin & Wee Textile. Both favorites and the kind that doesn't leave you feeling worse about yourself? I mention this because the past year i've had multiple conversations with different friends about how there seems to be this influx of blogs that are all about conspicuous consumption in fashion, decor, accessories, "perfect" families etc. and some of these friends [sometimes myself included] avoid most blogs all together... they're obviously not going away, but to that I say: seek out the blogs that don't leave you with that feeling. Only read the ones that inspire & encourage you to be creative, to be better than your yesterday self, that spark curiosity in positive ways. Lena's blogs do that for me...she really has helped me become a better curator of my life.
