• {Color Crush} Indigo Wedding

    color crush on indigo by oh lovely day

    I’ve been majorly crushing on some indigo lately.  It actually started years ago with an eye shadow.  It was love at first sight and ever since I’ve been obsessed with that deep inky shade of blue.  Then I saw this on instagram from Kristina of Lovely Morning and 100 Layer Cake and my obsession was reignited.  I’m now determined to dye every white tee I own indigo (and a few of Charlie’s too, since they don’t stay white anyways).  Then I thought, “how cool would this be, translated into wedding inspiration!?”  But first…

    I love the shades of indigo and how unique each pattern of the tie dye can be.  And the color and patterns inspire other translations of pattern and palette.  It made me think of cobalt blue china, of denim, of vintage bottles.  Of all the things you could bring into a wedding.

    Just think of the possibilities with an indigo wedding!  You could go modern or rustic, vintage or classic.  But I really envision it as an outdoor summer wedding.  What about you?  Crushing on indigo too?

      Beautiful! Love indigo and how it looks so crisp against white in the beach tablescape image. That ring is stunning!

      What a lovely color palette. Like those blue flowers in the mason jars.

    •  Motherhood is a constantly evolving state of total joy, exhausted agony, superhuman strength, and very human failures. As soon as you celebrate that superhuman successful day, it is replaced with new challenges. And just when you think you can't go one more day, you get a day so magical you want to have ten more babies. I'm in the midst of one of those exhausted phases again but I keep trying to remind myself that it is this phase that makes the magical days shine brighter. In the wise words of Miley Cyrus (I'm actually serious): it's all about the climb.  We've got this mamas.

That dream I'm dreaming, But there's a voice inside my head saying, "You'll never reach it." Every step I'm takin' Every move I make feels lost with no direction, My faith is shakin' But I, I gotta keep tryin' Gotta keep my head held high There's always gonna be another mountain I'm always gonna wanna make it move Always gonna be an uphill battle Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose Ain't about how fast I get there Ain't about what's waitin' on the other side It's the climb The struggles I'm facing The chances I'm taking Sometimes might knock me down, But no, I'm not breaking I may not know it, But these are the moments That I'm gonna remember most  Just gotta keep goin', And I, I gotta be strong Just keep pushing on, 'Cause... There's always gonna be another mountain I'm always gonna wanna make it move Always gonna be an uphill battle Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose Ain't about how fast I get there Ain't about what's waitin' on the other side It's the climb.  39 weeks today and you've now been growing outside of my body as long as you were growing inside.

       We have this hat, passed down to Charlie from my friend's little boy, then passed down to Calvin. It's just a simple grey hat but it is so so cute and is the thing that my boys wear the most in the toddler years. It holds so much sentimental value for me. Well yesterday I took the babies on a walk and somewhere along the way Calvin chucked it. He also tossed his shoes but I saw those right away. It wasn't until we stopped for lunch that I realized the hat was gone. I was so sad about it that I retraced our steps to see if I could find it. No luck. I'm pretty sure he tossed it in Goodwill while I was digging for stuff for our Halloween costumes. Which means it is gone, because when you lose something in Goodwill it is seriously like looking for a needle in a haystack. I've been sick about it ever since, which I know is silly. It's just a hat, after all. But it's one of those things that I was planning to pass to Quincy and then save forever and when I was old and grey I would dig it out of the attic and take a walk down memory lane. You moms know what I'm talking about. But it's gone and all I have are photos and the memories. Luckily Calvin had started putting it on Quincy's head and last week I snapped this picture. Charlie and Calvin both kept saying "cuuuuuuute" ❤️ I hope it makes its way onto another little boy's head someday #thefredrickboys #calvinandquincy #brudders #thebrotherhoodofthegreytoddlerhat  You've got a few hours left to enter to win your choice of sling from @mywildbird - head to my blog to enter now!
