Old Lyme

Two weekends ago we spent some quality time with our old buddies in Old Lyme, Connecticut. Over the last couple of years our paths have taken us all to several different cities across the East Coast, so whenever we can manage big group hangouts, it’s always a blast. This year was nothing short of awesome — complete with lots o’ grilling, games, and goofballs. Take a looksie at some snap shots from our weekend retreat!

Quick trip to Kansas

This post is a bit of a jumble of pictures from my recent long weekend trip to Kansas. You’ll see outfit pics, family pics, landscape pics…you name it! I go to Kansas every so often to visit my grandparents and other family and I always forget how much I love it until I’m there— from the perfectly picturesque evenings with beautiful sunsets and fireflies, to riding bikes around town, and stopping by the corn fields to see how the crops are doing. We took a gorgeous bike ride in the evening on Saturday and took some pictures around town and outfit pics of Nick and myself (we ran out of time to finish mine!), here they are…

Hoping those storm clouds were going to move in the other direction – and they did!

My 2 quick pics haha. We ran into family so we didn’t get a chance to finish before it got too dark out, but that’s ok!

We’re supposed to get major snow on Monday, but we’re in denial. Instead, take a look at these gorgeous green hills and think spring! Also make sure to check out our Friday links…

cct // I swear the sunsets have been extra great these days (they’re very cotton candy-ish), they remind me of this photography series

rkv // Christa recently bought me a new canvas tote by the artist KT Smail, and now we’re pretty much obsessed with her. So imagine my excitement when I saw some new desktop backgrounds that she made featured on DesignLoveFest!

cct // The Oscars are on Sunday, and these days the outfits are almost as important as the movies! Check out Marie Claire’s list of best Oscar dresses of all time.

rkv // Speaking of the Oscars…This weekend we’re hosting a small get together for the big event, so I may need to snag an idea or two from Cupcakes and Cashmere for party prepping

cct // This DIY has been circulating the web, and you can see why- it’s great! New project for this weekend perhaps?

rkv // I’ve been a bit behind on that New Years rezzie I made to myself about getting back into a gym routine, but I’ve finally got a little momentum going again so I appreciated these quick and effective moves by the Huffington Post

cct // Guys, I learned how to screenprint! This was my first piece, and I can’t wait for more projects 🙂 If anyone has any tips or tricks, I would love to hear them!

rkv // Love this simple idea for displaying old family recipes

Enjoy your weekend, all!
