America the Beautiful

America the Beautiful

Summer is a beautiful thing isn’t it?! Everyone is in a great mood, tan and gathering anywhere there is a grill and a cooler. The energy feels exciting and possibility is everywhere.



As the biggest summer holiday is right around the corner, the 4TH of JULY! My favorite trip for this time of year involves lakes and long days up north. I really feel like the midwest does a great job at summer because the rest of the year the weather is usually terrible. Summer is a time to shine and I love to plan my holiday with a few extras to make the holiday feel special and effortless. 



I’m a visual person and I love making mood boards so here is a mood board with all my favorite images for this time of the year. This is about creating a feeling and vibe that doesn’t have to be perfect. It’s about making your experiences feel right for you. 





Enjoy the eye candy and I wish you and yours a very happy holiday.



P.S. Don’t forget the sunscreen!

Till next week,

Red, White and Party!

Red, White and Party!

This weekend is the biggest birthday party of the year, Go USA! I can really feel the summer buzz once this holiday hits. It’s full of patriotic feelings and all the other fun stuff that goes along with it like food, friends and outdoor fun.



I also love that family traditions seem to be important around this holiday. I love decorating in subtle ways that reflect the history of traditional Americana but in a modern way. I challenge myself every year to find a few new ways to celebrate while still keeping some of the great older traditions I have.


I have been pinning a lot of new ideas and doing some shopping getting ready for this weekend so I thought I would share.

I also am including a few recipes I have made that I love! I hope this helps you while getting ready for this weekend and making your holiday as beautiful and effortless as possible.



Have a Happy 4th of July,
