Oh Happy Day!

OhHappyDay_Vacation

A little tip was dropped on Tuesday that we are in fact moving! I find it fascinating that at the beginning of every move, I seem to play down the doomed reality that this will actually be a lot of work. This is how it usually unfolds…

Denial… “Oh we don’t have much, moving won’t take too long…” Panic… ”We are moving next week, how am I going to get all this done?!” Packing… ”We have way too much stuff!” Moving… ”This U-haul smells funny…!!” We Made It… ”Ahh, life is good.”

The mix of trying to live your everyday life while your world literally gets picked up and transported to another location is no vacation. And somehow you always have way more stuff than you anticipate! Last week was panic, this week is packing and then onto the smelly Uhaul – and some how we manage to still have a great time!

After a busy weekend of moving + family festivities, I will be on vacation next week! Until then – drink cocktails with paper daisies, make paper flowers with your friends and Enjoy the summer sunshine! Happy summer and I will see you back here July 14th!

THE SECRET TO USING FLORAL TAPE

AppetitePaper_The-Secret-to-Floral-Tape_06Floral tape is one of the main ingredients in paper flowers. Yet for most, this material is the #1 cause of frustration during construction. Its indecisive attitude of, am I sticky? Am I not? can make anyones blood boil. After all, the title of “tape” tricked me into thinking it could actually adhere. Well deep breathe, I hope this tip helps put that rocky relationship on the mend…

Paper Daisy Drink Stirrer

I know Im not the only one who starts craving hot dogs, potato salad and refreshing cocktails this time of year. It’s practically in our blood when the forth of July starts peaking around the corner. Its that time of year where we can wear flip flops, bask in the sun and indulge in not one, but two (or three) hotdogs without judgement. Basically this girls summer dreams come true.

Usually I don’t have time to fuss with little details. Coordinating with friends or family and rallying up the troops for a celebration is a task in itself. But as much as I try to avoid it, I can’t help but mark any celebration as an excuse to whip up something special. So this is my “I’m procrastinating making my pasta salad project”, join me!
