It never gets old...

This weekend the hubs and I got away for a one day trip to Disney. We're only about 70 minutes away, so oftentimes we make a quick jaunt over to the parks. These trips are always a nice little break from the day-to-day grind. It's a chance for us to detach ourselves from our computers, get away from work and connect with each other again. It's like recharging our batteries or, as we like to say, regaining all of our Zelda hearts. Needless to say, I'm super refreshed and inspired to get back into the studio/dining room and create!

Oh castle (le sigh).

This kid is awesome.

Me and the Hubs

Loved the way the sunlight was streaming in from the lobby window where we had lunch.

Wilo Tree Wednesday: What's New - Retro Rabbit Hoops

Hey blog buddy!  I hope the week has been treating you well.  The weather is starting to get a bit cooler down here in Florida. And by cooler I mean 'bout 86 degrees.  But I shall take it!  I do miss the leaves changing colors though. The leaves changing color rocks. Anyways, I'm so excited to share with you a new set of rabbit hoops. I've been really inspired by some of the work that fellow Etsians have been creating, especially those that are using retro-style fabrics. So I went to my favorite place (JoAnne Fabrics) and bought some new threads. Usually I'll go for whatever suits my fancy but this past visit was fun because I found myself looking for fabrics that reminded me of what I used to see around my grandmother's house when I was little. Maybe it's the "Fall-like" weather down here, but these last few hoops made me really nostalgic. I hope that maybe they stir up a few memories of your childhood too, ya know the ones where you're sitting on the living room floor with a bowl of Sugar Smacks watching the Care Bears? Ok, maybe that was just me.

2 Year Wedding Anniversary with the Hubs

I can't believe it, blog buddy, but tomorrow marks the two-year anniversary of my wedding! We were married on a warm, windy day in a little white chapel surrounded by willow trees. It's funny, I never had the "I just knew" moment with anything else regarding the wedding. Both the photographer and the florist were referred to me from a friend. My sister-in-law and mother-in-law helped choose the bridesmaid's dresses with the accessories already picked out on Etsy (shout out!) months if not years before. And it was actually the look on my father's face when I came out of the dressing room that sold me on the gown. But as soon as I saw the photos of this little chapel on my then-fiance's phone I just knew. It was the place that I dreamed about as a little girl. Quaint and old-fashioned. Perfect. This past weekend my husband and I went back for a visit...
