• {Real Wedding} Daphne & Erik: Rustic Chic Meets Beach Wedding in Costa Rica

    I love a good beach wedding.  And this one is definitely a goodie!  Succulents and driftwood, a sea shell altar backdrop, plus burlap and mason jar details…what could be better!?  Loving this rustic-chic-meets-beach wedding!DIY beach destination wedding in Costa Rica | photos by Comfort Studios

    Don’t you love those DIY touches, that the couple dreamed up and their team made happen?  The sweet ceremony details, like the sea shell backdrop, are my favorites.  And the combination of the rustic chic details and the gorgeous beach setting is just perfection, don’t you agree?

    Also, in case you noticed I’m playing around with my new photoshop skills and my blog layout.  You may see changes and I may keep trying new things.  If you love something (or hate it), let me know!

      Beautiful veil – simple yet timeless. The lighting for the evening reception really adds warmth – lighting creates such a big impact.

    •  Calvin has been sleeping through the night for a while but has been taking crap naps for over a month. A few people recommended the Magic Sleep Suit, but I was skeptical at first because his swaddled night sleep was so good I didn't think that was his problem. Well, I've been using it since yesterday and am seeing some improvement. While his naps aren't any longer yet (only about 45 minutes long) he went down without much crying at all. And last night he slept from 7:30pm to 6:45 am, never crying or fussing, where he used to be fussy off and on from 4 or 5 am till wake up around 6:30 because he would get really squirmy in his swaddle. He also used to end up with his head in the corner of his crib from all the squirming. Last night he stayed put right in the middle, never made a peep, and only woke me up at 6:45 with happy babbling, no crying. He was already a great night sleeper and we had already been nap training for about a week, but this was a noticeable difference. If your baby is around 3-4 months and having a sleep regression, or rolling in the crib or fighting the swaddle, this might be a big help to you. Also, Calvin looks like an adorable cross between the stay puff marshmallow man and Ralphie's brother from A Christmas Story  I'll definitely share his progress after using it for a couple more weeks. And because it is Christmas and I want to give the gift of sleep to you, I'm giving one of these away to a lucky IG follower! Just follow @ohlovelyday & @magicsleepsuit and leave a comment below letting me know that you followed and I'll choose a random winner from the comments and tag you that you won. Giveaway starts now, through Christmas Eve at 4 pm PST. Feel free to tag anyone you think would be interested in your entry as well, but only one comment counts per IG account. Good luck! And head over to my blog, where I'm co-hosting a high tech goodies giveaway with @clubmomme, giving away 3 packages of amazing prizes including a MamaRoo from @4moms_hq and a card away from @britaxus. The giveaway is a couple posts down (link in profile). #thegiftofsleep
       Wrapping presents this morning while my boys are out Christmas shopping. We try not to overdue it for Christmas, especially because the boys have August and November birthdays. Aside from what Santa brings (and he only brings the couple things the kids ask for, which this year is a kitchen and a toy trumpet for Charlie) we try hard to stick to the motto: something you want, something you need, something to wear, and something to read. How cute are those matching pjs and fox friends? (Sources tagged). This has been the most fun Christmas yet to shop for because Charlie is really excited and Calvin has joined the family ❤️
