This song expresses the beauty through struggle well. colorful carnival-themed DIY wedding from jennie andrews photography

    I’m DYING over the bride’s gorgeous red reception dress. I kinda sorta REALLY want to steal her whole wedding, don’t you? It’s magical!

      It is fun for having DIY in the wedding, isn’t it? I am sure the process is meaningful. I like backyard idea as well. It is warm, natural, intimate and happy. The bridal gown is so beautiful. Your ladies are really fashionable. Congratulations!

      I’m a little late, but I was wondering if anyone can tell me how the labels on the tea tins were made and what are the strips of colored paper? Are the held down by the labels or labels themselves?

    •  You have a toof! I think you're trying to show it off. I feel like you really grew and changed this week. You're way bigger, are full of personality, are eating a ton, are trying to crawl, and officially have a bottom tooth. And you're only still when you're sleeping. #32weeks #calvinsweekbyweek #calvinsmilestones And don't forget I'm hosting a spring/summer wardrobe for littles giveaway on ohlovelyday.com. So many of my favorites are included. #whatcalvinwears #OLDgoodiesguide #OLDgoodiesguidegiveaway
       Have you heard that @honest has come out with a feeding line? As a nursing mom who has to formula supplement, I feel better about giving Calvin their organic formula & DHA supplement just by reading the ingredients. I'm going to be posting more about this on my blog next week, but Honest is having a flash sale on their site right now so it's a great time to buy and try! I put the sale link directly in my profile for the day (or you can copy this link http://bit.ly/1xkyRLR) - use coupon code SHOP25OFF to get 25% off your order site wide. This isn't for bundles, so order a tub or two to try and then if you love it like I do you can sign up for a bundle next time. But hurry, the sale ends today!!! I haven't tried their bottles yet but love the formula, DHA, and have been trying the lactation boost too. http://bit.ly/1xkyRLR
