DIY Fiesta Banner

 For some reason in Cora Beth’s baby book under holidays there’s a picture slot for Cinco de Mayo! While I usually go eat Mexican food on Cinco de Mayo it isn’t really a holiday I thought I’d have to document during my baby’s first year of life! I’m not one to leave a space blank though. So I figured if we’re going to celebrate why not go big! Go big or go home right? To help with the celebration I made this DIY Fiesta Banner to hang up!

Five Things to Put in Baby’s First Easter Basket

It makes my heart so happy to get to do an Easter basket this year! I didn’t really get excited about this past Christmas because I was still in a sleep deprived haze of the newborn stage that all Cora Beth got was a Cuddle + Kind doll that I didn’t even wrap (opps) and forget about Santa! So I’m definitely putting together my baby’s first Easter basket! Of course she’s not really excited about it but I am!

Simple Easter Tablescape

I’m really looking forward to Easter this year! I guess because it’s Cora Beth’s first Easter (her Easter basket is SO cute!). On a recent Target trip I was looking through the dollar bins when I saw the cutest linen napkins and knew I had to have them! Can anyone resist those bins? If you can please tell me your secret!!! Before I knew it the napkins, some eggs and few other items were in my cart and my idea for this simple Easter tablescape was coming together!

Thankful For New Seasons- plus free fall art prints

It’s the last day of September and it’s finally starting to feel like fall in middle Tennessee, although, I won’t hold my breath as the temperature is likely to spike back up! And at the end of this post I have some free fall art prints for you!

Fall is my favorite season. Pumpkin flavored everything, soup in the crockpot, light jackets, windows open, the leaves change into gorgeous oranges, reds, and yellows! It’s just the best! And I’m so thankful that God allows for new seasons, not just in the weather though but in life as well.
