• {Guest Post} Rustic Picnic Summer Wedding from Love and Lavender

    Today’s guest post comes from the ladies of Love and Lavender, my favorite wedding blog duo out there!  And their summer wedding inspiration is oh so lovely!

    Hi Oh Lovely Day readers! We are thrilled to be guest blogging for Chandra while she is on vacation! Since summer is just around the corner we decided to put together a summer inspiration shoot that has a backyard feeling to it. When we think of summer weddings, we think of a laid-back environment with a somewhat rustic/picnic vibe to it. with casual attire–bridesmaids in mixed-matched dresses and the groom in a plaid button up with a tie. Lemonade is a must as well as delicious pies for desserts.The decor should be fun and informal–almost like you just set up a picnic—with simple flowers and random vintage furniture.

    •  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
