Love ya, Tom!

There really is nothing better than a beautiful spring Saturday and happy hour at 5! Last Saturday, we worked in the yard, I painted, napped and just enjoyed our day. Brian started cocktail hour around 5 with this delicious Tom Collins. I LOVE these in the spring and summer. So light, crisp and refreshing. Exactly what my weekend needed... so I guess I'll share the fabulousness with you in the form of the recipe. 

Brian's Famous Tom Collins
(Which we really just took from the bar book) 
2 ounces gin
1 ounce fresh lemon juice
.5 ounce simple syrup (make your own!)
3 ounces chilled club soda
Lemon slice

Happy Monday!

I turned 30!

So I turned 30 almost two weeks ago and it was an absolute blast! It was so. much. fun. I don't know that I've ever had a birthday that was that much fun all day long! Work has been crazy busy but it was nice to step back and relax and have some fun! 

Started my day with breakfast, flowers and a present from my sweet husband... 

My office was covered, literally.. there were things everywhere! Such sweet coworkers and friends! 


The most clever little birthday gift. 

And these sweet friends drove down from Wynne on Tuesday night to take me to dinner. Be still my heart. I had such a great time! Let's see if I can upload this snap from my office :) 


And of course, thank you to all my family, friends and coworkers for making me feel so loved and special. I really can't tell you just how beautiful this birthday was! XOXO.

Even more NEW Projects

I've been busy working on lots of new, fun custom projects! Like the pictures above and below-- aren't these adorable?? 


And this sweet little newborn canvas is so precious! The ARKANSAS door hanger below is just another take on my super popular one but this time we've added a last name. So cute! And perfect for year round use.  


And I've done this design with red and yellow flowers but how adorable is it with teal and yellow?! So fun! You can find most of these in my ETSY STORE or shoot me an EMAIL
