• {Inspiraton Board} Fun & Fresh Color Fall Wedding

    Hey y’all, happy unofficial Fall!  Even though it doesn’t feel like fall yet, I’m so looking forward to it.  Fall is my favorite season.  Although I don’t get the cooler temps and pretty autumn trees that I used to get back home in Ohio here in LA, we do have our own version of Fall.  Sweaters, football, scarves, pumpkin-flavored everything…what’s not to love!?  So today’s inspiration board is a wedding translation of everything I love about Fall.

    fun & fresh color for this fall wedding inspiraiton board by oh lovely day
    {color palette} mason jar aqua, pumpkin, mustard, kraft paper brown, cream

    {inspiration} the pumpkin and mustard are expected warm fall colors, but they are given a fresh spin and a bit of cheer with the aqua.  plus it allows you to accent your decor with mason jars, and who doesn’t love mason jars!?  finish it off with kraft paper envelopes on your invites, kraft menus or programs, burlap table runners, and some cream accents in your florals or linens.  So much better than your standard rust, orange, brown fall palette, no?

I was featured on @loyal_hana blog as part of their motherhood series, so if you want to give it a read and hear about my typical (hot mess) day or how I (don't) balance work and mothering head to their profile to find the link to their site. I pretty much live in their nursing-friendly clothes and was honored to be featured. 3. Charlie took this picture (and basically directed me for the shot) and it makes me really really happy   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
       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 ✌️️✨
