With Hope to Inspire.
The Best Holiday Cocktail Recipe Ever!
What is life without a little inspiration?
When someone inspires us, it creates a little fire within us that sparks an even deeper drive and paints our brain with waves of color that awakens and enlightens our minds.
The ocean inspires me. To let go. To take a deep breathe and surrender to something so uncomprehendingly larger than me. More powerful and magnificent.Its repetitive voice never ceases to whisper words of grace and blankets my soul with its stillness.
Just like my heavenly father. Our heavenly father. Whom I surrender, fear and adore.

How to combat "Flu Season" for good... NATURALLY!
As much as I want to...I cannot take credit for this cocktail.
My dad is THE MAN, and he makes all things amazing.
SO... I am going to share with you, the most wonderful cocktail of the season that HE came up with himself! To make this cocktail,...is a gift in itself.
Quick! Hide! its... COLD SEASON! & I'm not talking about the weather.
Sniffles, sick days from work, and long headaches that make cozy-ing up with a Netflix marathon even more appealing!
BUT what would you say if I said, there was no such thing as "flu or cold season?!"
I KNOW. crazy huh!?
I would argue that the flu is not a season at all! It is an inability to adapt due to decreased sunshine, water intake with increased sugar intake and stress! We could combat with a couple good habits to boost the immune system you could start TODAY.
Our NEW PUPPY! Sharing our tips for your little family!
This Christmas is Aaron and I's first Christmas together as a married couple! We got a mini tree perfect for moving (because we are out of our place in 4 days!) & I LOVE IT SO MUCH! It is way too precious! However I am loving all of these dreamy "Charley Brown" style trees that people are posting!
We are also halfway in boxes to our noses and are so excited for a new adventure coming up!
But girls---I have something really exciting to announce:

The Ultimate Guide Around the Abaco Islands!
She was crowned in confidence and laughed without fear of the future.
We've all heard it, we've all pinned it. We've all pondered and shook our heads at the fact confidence and fearlessness is as easy to accomplish as putting a fire out with rubbing alcohol.
However, if I could tell you one thing in hopes that it would stick with you forever- I would tell you that you are a Princess.
Because that is something that I am confident about...
Ever so clearly painted in my mind: White sheer cloth loosely draped from the crown of her head sweeping across her eyelids onto the muted floral bouquet held at waist height. She swiftly makes her entrance and way down the aisle to her moment. Her moment where he unveils her soft porcelain skin from beneath the sheer covering. For that moment, the existence of flaws is irrelevant, nothing in the world matters accept being present, true beauty and confidence awakens. All eyes are on her.
This moment is everything she has been dreaming of her whole life. To be unveiled by her Prince who rescued her, and intends to take her on the adventure of a lifetime. The moment where she finally gets to experience the revelation in which she truly wishes to be seen.
This moment lives inside us.
Fun Flirty Florals and Fruity Cones
The Caribbean is a long ways from home for a California girl, but the Great Abaco Islands got me feeling all sorts of home.
With Air bnb, you win some and you lose some. You know, like that Tinder date that lied about his height.
Thankfully, Casa Tortuga left us thoroughly impressed!
Wanderlustin' Over This Perfect Island Dress in the Bahamas!
The perfect warm summer day couldn't be more complete with a sassy choker, florals and a fresh vegan ice cream cone!
Call me crazy, but I could make this an everyday thing!
Flea Market Finds- What I bought and how I styled it!
You can say that I have a habit over-packing.
Basically, if it were up to me I would pack my whole closet.
Sooooo you could imagine my facial expression when Aaron told me that I was only able to pack a carry-on and backpack for a 12 day trip to the Bahamas.
Summertime Vibin'- Beat the heat in STYLE with these TEA recipes!
My shoes would be telling lies if they said my socks ever matched.
I was told countless amount of times by my mother that I look homeless because I didn't brush my hair.
I don't know how many pieces of paper that was unwillingly sacrificed as daily art projects....
New Aspiration: Living Simply (Welcome to our little Home!)
Summer is a perfect time to splurge on a new suit, hat and pair of cute sunnies. But EVERY summer has a staple.
You know what I am talking about.
That one outfit you wear 12 times a week?! (Exaggerative-YES-but really though)
My 2017 staples this summer other than trying to drink a crap load of WATER are:
Some MAJOR Bridal Shower Inspo!
We are made to be simple beings.
But we just love to create CHAOS.
Iv'e missed my last 4 dentist appointments due to over scheduling myself.
So this month, I dedicated to cleansing.
Not only watching what I put in and on my body, but cleansing my mind as well.
Underlining Truth About Social Media
Soooo one of my best friend's is getting married.
(This is where I would pause with eyes clinched shut and a huge smile ....and make an obnoxiously high pitch squealing noise)
Yes, I am that friend that squeezes you too tight until your uncomfortable. Excitement is an understatement.
Her bridal shower was one out of a magazine, so THANK THE LORD I brought my camera...(!!!)
The Relationship Game- Our Advice
Disclaimer: No filter here.
Like I ever have one.
Did you know that we "typically" spend 32 hours a week on television, 3 hours on movies, 4 hours on magazines and 10 hours online.
That is 10 hours 45 minutes a day on media!
Take that in for a second.
All of which delivers content that shapes our society and manipulates us by using widespread content bias. This got me thinking, how many hours roughly do I stare at a screen for entertainment? And what is that doing to my brain?
Our Wedding Day!
Lately we are facing one question in particular that seems to be the ongoing question of the season: "Hows the married life?"
My Road to Graduation
Reminiscing over this day gives me all the feels all over again. Goosebumps. People always ask, how did it go?! & there is literally not one complaint. Not ONE. I have dreamt of this fairy-tale day walking down the aisle to my prince ever since I was born. You think I'm exaggerating? Not only did my father call me princess and set the standard at an all time high. But, I asked for a wedding dress as soon as Santa was taking lists in the mail.
Morning Lavender- Spring Collection
My dad had multiple conditions as to what it took to marry me.
It came a bit of a surprise to us both when we found out that one of them was, I graduate (finish) college before we say "i do."
School had been a long road for me.
I could almost hear the vocal backdrop of Spongebob Squarepants saying, "6 years lata" as I finished my last final.
Well, and a whole lot of cheering!
The last thing I wanted was a reason to put off our marriage for over a whole year.

Sad that I've about killed about all of them.
