Weekend Recap + Blogger Love

Image MapThis past weekend, Hunter and I were able to escape reality for a little while to the beach. Mexico Beach to be exact (read: our heaven on earth).

We went with Hunter's family and stayed in a gorgeous condo with his aunt and cousins. There were many games of Phase 10 (basically Rummy), puzzles were constructed, Mango-Ritas were consumed (this was my favorite part), and beautiful walks along the shoreline to collect seashells all took place. And the best part of the entire weekend was the fact that I purposefully left my cell phone in the condo while we were out soaking up some sun rays.

It was glorious!!

Our last night there, Hunter and I sat on the deck and just talked about life while the sun was setting. We remininsced on our 3.2 years together, and talked about the future. Have you ever had that one person that you can just sit and talk to about God-knows-what for hours on end, and feel like your soul is at such peace? That's how our relationship is - we can just sit and talk for hours, or simply just sit quietly while the world passes us by, taking it all in together.

And of course, a small photo op was needed. Just because.
My best friend

I decided to do the opposite of him


Now for that blogger love I know ya'll are waiting on... Drum roll please....

Is this not the most darling print ever?? Kelly with Patient Resilience (she's got a great name - ha!) has an eye and a knack for artistic and funky styles for digital prints. When Kelly contacted me about her artwork, I just couldn't help myself while I was in her Etsy shop - I loved all of them!

The item pictured above is part of a greeting card and gift tag set in her shop. Purple is one of my favorite colors so I'm swooning over the different shades in the flower. I can already see these babies playing a part in the gifts Hunter and I will be giving to our helpers in our wedding.

Not only is her Etsy shop so fun, her blog is such a refreshing read. Kelly's postive and uplifting spirit through her writing is just my kind of style. Thank you Kelly for being a great inspiration to many!
