• {Real Wedding} Amanda & JR: Simple & Classic Vintage DIY Wedding

    Sometimes it is refreshing to see a simple, classic-with-a-touch-of-vintage wedding.  Today is one of those times.  There isn’t an abundance of “stuff” or of DIY projects, although the bride did DIY the favors and florals.  Sweet and simple is on the agenda for today!  Enjoy.

    A little bit from the bride:
    I wanted to keep things simple and classic and a touch vintage, so details like a bird cage veil, a magnolia arch and a collection of found bottles & vases all got me really excited as I started to pull things together. My dress had the slightest tinge of pink to it so I played off that with flowers in a range on peaches, pinks and olive greens. We ended up finding all of the flowers we used to decorate at Whole Foods, the grocery store and then a small local florist. And my mom was a huge part of bringing it all together. When she got into town, she ran countless errands with me – tracking down just the right flowers, scouring the city for the perfect hair accessories to hold down my veil, and gathering countless bottles. It all came together surprisingly smoothly, though.

    The combination of the gorgeous photos by Moss & Isaac and the lovely venue (Parkside Mansion) showcase the bride’s vision perfectly I think!  What do you think?  Is simple and classic your style?

    •  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 ✌️️✨  And just like that, summer is back  Take me back to the fall weather of two days ago! Also, take me back to when this kid slept past 5 am and took naps. For a week now, between 4:30-5:30 am this kid climbs up on our bed over top of me and proceeds to squrim, poke, and annoy me till I get up. Quincy's sleeping till 6 or later FINALLY and now Calvin is waking me up!? And he refused to nap today (again) too. Seriously you guys, he's killin' me. He looks real cute in rain gear but if he does it again tonight he's headed to toddler military school. #sotiredineedanewwordfortired #calvins3rdyear #battlefieldmotherhood
       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  There were very few baby things I hadn't yet tried by the time I had Quincy but I hadn't really used a sling before. I got my first sling when I was still pregnant with Q and tried it with Calvin, but once Cal was walking he never wanted to be carried. He's far too busy for all that. So Quincy is the first baby I've used a sling with, and I feel like I really missed out with the other two. I had and loved other carriers with them (and still do) but there is just something about the sling that is magical and it is my carrier of choice right now. It is convenient (you can keep it threaded and just throw it on), it is cozy, it doesn't tightly wrap behind my back which always makes me sweaty, and I can nurse while Quincy is in it which has been a lifesaver. I'm actually nursing him in this photo! I'm sharing photos from our recent visit to the pumpkin patch and how I got to do all the things with my family while wearing Quincy in the sling because I didn't have to stay with him in the stroller or go find a place to nurse him. He chilled, ate, and napped in my sling. And because I love it so much I'm teaming up with @mywildbird to give one reader a sling of their choice!
