Bridal Pictures Spring 2014

I recently had the pleasure of doing my Husband's Aunts engagement pictures and they were so fun to photograph so you can imagine how thrilled I was when she asked me to do her bridals as well! 

The tricky thing is I had just had my baby two weeks earlier and was still recovering so we had to shoot these at my house. I was a little worried about having my backyard as the location but it turned out great! She makes such a beautiful bride, and I am so happy for her!

DIY Double Row Coat Hooks

This old craftsman home of mine needs a lot of work everywhere! I call this project dream house and this is one of our latest installments to get this old bucket up to snuff. 

I had this corner by the front door that was just not doing anything. I didn't want to just hang up another picture. We desperately need a nice feature here and one that would add to the charm of the home as well as serve a purpose. Coat hooks were the perfect thing for this drab corner. 

I wanted to do a double row to not only utilize the space more but because this is perfect for little hands that can't reach high enough for the top hooks. We used four coat hooks and five drawer knobs on the bottom. The two by four adds drama and extra security to the wall. 

Project dream house is well underway!

4th Of July Chalkboard Word Art (FREE Printable)

I love celebrating Independence day for so many reasons! Even when I was a little girl I would get teary eyed when I sang the Star Spangled Banner or watched Will Smith in Indepence day, lol! I have always been so proud of my country and while we may not be perfect we have been though a lot and always continue to strive for a better tomorrow.  And now that both my brother and my brother-in-law are serving in the military it has that much more meaning to me. Im so grateful for this country that I live in and for all those past and future who make all this freedom that I enjoy possible. 

I'm proud to be an american. 

I hope you enjoy this free printable and your 4th of July celebrations!
