we went to a pottery place with laura. marlowe’s came out great. mine looks like a 7 year old painted it. #soclose

green stuff.

smoothie mornings. thats her preferred breakfast spot.

dominos. marlowe is pretty good. 

this is my preferred zen out spot, until we spruce up the back πŸ˜‰ 

apparently her and I have a thing for zen-ing out in swing chairs?

flowers from my mama. she’s the best. 

i just love everything she does.  also, we cleaned up these shelves the other day– no one would notice the changes we made, but we think it looks a lot cleaner! this photo is pre-organizing, if you’re wondering πŸ™‚ 

these are a few of my favorite things. favorite oatmeal, mango flowers!?! coconuts from neighbors yard, guava and limes from our yard and eggs from our ladies! <3<3<3

me and my friend. my weird, sticky, bubble-gummy friend. 
How was everyone’s weekend?! Mine has been pretty good! I’m scrambling like crazy to try to get as much done as I can before our trip this week. It’s been a hectic week- but in a good way. I’m doing an instagram takeover next weekend that I’m super excited about– with a company that I’ve been using and obsessed with for six+ years! I love blogging for stuff like that– I’m constantly being introduced to new companies I wouldn’t have otherwise heard of— that I get to fall in love with. But also, I get to work with companies that I’ve loved for so long. I’m super grateful for all of it. Seriously, it’s one of my favorite parts– besides meeting amazing people and lifelong friends!
Alright friends, I’m off to scramble some more– I’m going to get ALL the things done, emails answered, and I need to prep a bunch of meals for Marlowe to eat while we’re gone. Well, I don’t have to do that– but I like to do it! She enjoys it more and it makes it easier for family πŸ™‚ 
Have a wonderful week, friends! 


  1. Question: (Beyonce voice from independent women song) is your white shelving unit a built in one? I love!

  3. I love how in the last picture your potted plants are hanging. Where did you purchase these or how did you make them? πŸ™‚

  4. Love your exotic home grown fruit. It was a crazy weekend of camping her (the littlest people), football (all three of them), torrential rain and mud. I am surrounded by washing gently drying and damp boots, seemingly dozens of them. I do love to restore order. CJ xx
