My living room was depressed

In desperate needed of a switch up, I found these bright pillows at Pier 1. Primary colors always signify summer is in the air. I have Marina to thank for scoring me the sheep skin rug to complete the look. I love that thing and cannot stop touching it. I am pleased with the end result and think my living room has been successfully pulled out of its funk.

Modern meets rustic

image by jen ramos

I really love this office. This woman/girl/lady has really great taste and a snazzy blog to boot. I have been wanting to incorporate a small set of antlers into our home decor and this is the look I am going for. Modern mixed with a few of rustic touches. Ever since we got married and combined households, our taste has always been very eclectic. I asked Z what he thought about the antler idea and if he thought it was too weird. Normally, a question like this is met with a response similar to this "whatever you think." This time he said, I don't think our house is weird enough. This is why I love my husband. I can never anticipate what he will say next.

TOMS Wedges

Scored me a pair of these.
I really wanted black but settled for orange pinstripe.
Apparently, they are in high demand and sold out in most stores.

I have some really amazing friends. Simply put, yes. Cliche, maybe. But when said aloud, that statement speaks volumes when I reflect on the last few weeks. I am surrounded by an incredible group of girls that get me and love me even when sometimes that is hard to do. They were right there by my side as I faced a rough patch. Listening, offering words of encouragement, lending shoulders to cry on and just plain ol' caring about what was going on in my life. When you are in college you think you have all these wonderful friends. As you get older (and wiser) you begin to realize those people are really nothing more than acquaintances. Your real friends are the ones who see you through break-ups, marriage, death and all the other stuff in between. So I dedicate this blog to the girls in my life. You know who you are. You are all so very special to me. I never take a single day I have you in my life for granted. A thank you could never really be enough. oxoxox
