iPhone Case Shopping

My Kate Spade iPhone case broke yesterday. I was sad, but also excited to get a new one. Love when that happens! I went to the website Society 6 & oh my goodness. The choices. The designs. Ahhh! Haha There were sooo many to choose from! Here were my top 10:

And the winner is the last one {the yellow vw!} It is especially close to my heart because I own a VW! Although it isn't pink or turquoise with sparkles {like my usual picks haha} it is very different & unique which I also absolutely love. The one that came in a very close second was #9, that may be my next one. I love all the vintage 50s clothes in front of that cute shop.

Have you ever been to Society 6? If you haven't, go check it out!

Springtime Color!

I am sooo happy it is Spring!!! I love how the earth really feels like it comes to ALIVE. I'm so thankful that we haven't had much of a winter in Virginia Beach. I absolutely LOVE the weather here! But there was still something missing from December~February {yes only, February, my daffodils starting blooming in the middle of February!} that something was COLOR. I'm so happy to see color again; from fashion, decor, & nature!

So speaking of color, I LOVE these rooms!

Backyard Spaces and Patios

Lately I have been daydreaming of beautiful outdoor spaces. It's been such a gorgeous month. Looking at these beautiful spaces makes me want to dive in & start decorating our backyard!

A beautiful backyard space, friends, music, laughter, sunshine, twinkle lights . . . what more could you ask for?! =)

What about you? Have you started thinking about your backyard/balcony space?

Seeing Stripes

Hey all! How are you all? I have been {and still am} under the weather for over a week now! I'm feeling a little better today. Hopefully by tomorrow I will have all my energy and my voice back! This is the first time I've had enough energy to write, I've missed it badly!

Since I've been resting, I've been dreaming of black and white stripe panels in our den. They are so classic and dramatic at the same time! I love it! What do you think?

Gettysburg, Pennsylvania

Near the end of last year, my husband & I visited Gettysburg, Pennsylvania while we were attending a conference. It was an amazing little trip. We definitely want to go back because we didn't have enough time to explore the battlefields, trails, tours, antique stores, & diners!

While we were there, we dined at the Dobbin House Restaurant. It's the oldest house {now restaurant/tavern} in Gettysburg, built is 1776. I highly recommend it! The food & service was awesome. Not to mention the amazing history & decor! It was crowded & we were on a tight schedule or I would have taken more pictures. At least now we definitely have an excuse to return! ;)

Have you ever visited Gettysburg? What do you recommend visiting/touring?
