• Happy New Year and Happy Blog Birthday to me

    One year ago, on January 1, 2010, I wrote my first blog post on Oh Lovely Day.   I’ve loved blogging and posting about weddings, DIY projects, and all things lovely in this last year.  I started this blog for me just because I enjoy it so much, but I’ve even found that a few people follow and read my posts!  I’ve struggled with it over the last couple of months, especially recently since having my little boy.  I just don’t have the time to keep up on my blog reading and have had a hard time getting inspired to write a post.  However, I am not ready to hang up my blog hat yet.  I hope to start posting at least a couple times a week in the new year.  It might even be good for me.  So if anyone out there has a wedding, engagement session, story, gift, decor idea, etc. that they would like to share or have featured, please email me some inspiration!  I’m always happy to share a new idea, project, or product that I love with the 3 people who read this blog!

    I wish everyone a safe and happy New Years and an inspiring 2011!  xx

    •  Can a person be your happy place? Because I'm pretty certain that Quincy is mine ☺️✨ #quincyrhys #thatdimpletho  This week was a rough one. I feel like I say that every week but this one really was. Today alone had me at my breaking point. All three of my kids seemed hell bent on driving me crazy. Quincy literally wouldn't let me put him down or leave the room without a major scream-cry fest. He rode around on the fuss bus allllll day. Tropical storm Calvin left destruction in his wake everywhere he went (if you follow me on snap/stories you got a little sampling but that was nowhere near the extent of it). At one point I went into a room away from my kids and sat in a chair and cried. Within three minutes one of them found me (of course) gave me a hug, and we were all better (except Calvin -- I think this is his permanent state ). This photo is my version of thinking happy thoughts. Bougainvillea vibes ✌️️✨
       Putting the finishing touches on the boys' bedroom and had to stop to admire the magic that the morning light and their @babyjives mobile was making. ✨☁️⭐️❤️✨#charlieandcalsroomredo  You know what is a great motivator? Not wanting to be outdone by your big bro. Cause look who's pulling himself up, so he can keep up  #quincysmilestones #calvinandquincy #lawdhelpme #charlieandcalsroomredo
