• It’s 2013 & Oh Lovely Day is Three Years Old Today!

    oh lovely day is turning 3!
    So the extra special thing about New Year’s Day for me is not only a new year and a fresh start, but it is also Oh Lovely Day’s birthday! {pop pop!}  Yep, two years ago I started this blog, and published my first post.  It wasn’t even really intended as a blog – more of a journal for me to keep track of things I loved, wedding ideas I had, DIY projects I did for my own wedding, and things I learned in the planning process.  I just loved planning and designing my own wedding so much that once it was over I didn’t know what to do with myself.  That’s how Oh Lovely Day was born.  Who knew that little idea would grow into what it is now – a real blog, with real readers (and these days there are quite a lot of you!)  I’m still so humbled and honored to have so many of you lovely readers who find inspiration from my blog, who take the time to comment, and who come back every day.  
    And very soon, Oh Lovely Day will be launching its new look.  I’ve been working hard with some really talented ladies to give her a pretty facelift (after all, 3 years in people years is 30 years in blog years) and I’m adding some fun features (hint: there will be something for you brides to read about long after your weddings have passed) and I’m really excited to share it with you all! 
    As I said yesterday in my 2012 wrap up, you’ve helped make my dreams come true by reading, following, commenting, and supporting this blog, so to celebrate my blog birthday + redesign, and to thank you lovely readers, I’ll be doing a week of giveaways soon – when we’ve launched the new look.  
    Happy New Year to you & Happy Blog Birthday to Me!  xx

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
       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
