I just wanted to take time to dedicate this blog post to Alicia, who always manages to put a smile on my face no matter what! :) Lish and I were roommates for two years before I got married and had some of the best times of my life! From water fights to cooking experiments and especially shopping trips - Lish always lifts my spirits with her carefree attitude toward life.
Love you, Lisha! I'm proud of you! Have fun in Italy next month!

Because of this article, along with many others, I have been inspired to feature many more GREEN ideas on my blog. It is my goal to have a completely all-natural home one day! It will be a long journey to get there but I can't wait to get started!
One of my goals this year is to make my very own composter. Find out how here!

I received a travel pack of what looks to be French bath soaps and lotion! They smell heavenly! I also received this cute little "Love" box with a red rose hair clip inside. :) Super cute! I can't wait to wear it!
I'm pretty sure that my package partner MADE my hair clip because I checked out her etsy site and she had several similar hair clip on her site. Head on over to her etsy site to purchase your very own!
Oh, and to my package partner: Yours will be mailed this weekend! I'm putting finishing touches on it! Sorry it's so late!
I'm looking forward to the next Lovely Package Exchange!

We have been looking forward to this trip since February when we booked this little vacation! There are eight of us here this week in Santa Rose Beach, Florida! We are having a blast laying on the beach, reading, sleeping late and above all... EATING! Our vacation rental house is about 10 minutes from my favorite city-SEASIDE, so we have spent most of our time there. Yesterday Buie and I walked around Seaside and I took a few pictures of my favorite spots in the town. I really want to own a home in Seaside one day- it's one of our many goals! :) Here are a few pictures of the wonderful people I am here with this week. I will post more scenery pics later on when I finish editing them.
Check back for more vacation pics!
