May Favorites

Favorite DIY: The Alcohol Bouquet that Kristin made is the cutest gift I have ever seen. Talk about the perfect present for a birthday, congratulations, or just for fun....I adore it!

Favorite Purchase: I went ahead and got my garter for the wedding. I am really excited because it came from our boutique at work so it's a little added touch of special. Part of it is pictured in this IG post, but I'm not telling you which one it is. Ooooh the suspense, right?!
Favorite Recipe: Who doesn't love their crockpot? In the summer? Even better! Brenley from Spoons of Grace shares a delicious crockpot barbeque chicken sandwich that I foresee being on serious repeat this season.

Favorite Inspiration: Chelsea from The Girl Who Loved To Write reminds us that when you don't knkow what to do, do what you know to do. It's a great reminder to be present, slow down, and try to live stress free.

Favorite Moment: Receiving old fashioned mail is at the top of my awesome things list. I really enjoy sending people cards and notes, so when I get something in the mail I kind of hardcore cheesy smile. Kerri sent me this beautiful gold note, and it was even more amazing because I am a co-host of the "You Are Beautiful" linkup. Simple sweet gestures mean the world to me, so thank you girl!
