Just had to pass this along... I love this quote, and when I stumbled upon it litterally 25 seconds ago, I felt compelled to share it with you...

"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams and live the life you have imagined." - Henry David Thoreau

Words to live by my friends. By the way, this inspirational post dawned on me while stalking one of my new favorite home design blogs, kara paslay designs. She and her hubby possess ridiculous amount of talent, and I day dream about stealing their DIY ideas often.

Excuses & A Pretty Dress

So disappointed in myself, I can't even say out loud how long it has been since my last post... and it would be pretty easy for you to figure out on your own. I could ramble on about the many reasons I have been so absent, but I don't want to bore you... ok I'll give you just one. We bought a house! More on that later...

On to my current obsession: floral prints. They seem to be popping up everywhere! My personal style tends to lean towards the ultra feminine, so I'm pretty excited about this trend and I hope it sticks around for a while. I've been searching for a pretty "guest of wedding" dress for Ben's {my super-sweet cousin-in-law} wedding this July, so when I stumbled upon this little beauty from ModCloth.com, it took me about 2.5 second to whip out my debit card and make it mine...

Tres cute, no? Ben is getting married here in Pullman and the reception will be at Red Barn Farms, probably my favorite Summer venue in the area for many reasons -

  • It is literally a  big red barn with rustic charm set in the beautiful rolling hills of the palouse,
  • indoor and/or outdoor seating for the ceremony and/or reception is available
  • you can bring in your own caterer/bartender {how rare is that?!},
  • there are very few decorating limitations since, hello... it's a barn! And,
  • bonus - If you're from around this neck of the woods, you know how gorgeous the fields are this time of the year, we are so blessed!
Can't wait for your big day Ben & Kelly!
