loveandsplendor Shhh... I have a wedding TODAY! I'm in love with this cheeky eye mask from @teamhairandmakeup and can't wait to kick off my 2015 season today! I always wake up on wedding days with an extra dose of energy. Let's go! // #loveandsplendorweddings 13h

loveandsplendor I kicked off the day at @sqirlla with sweet #loveandsplendorworkshops alumna @leahemoss, visiting from Michigan. One of the best things about my workshop last fall has been the wonderful relationships I've made with so many attendees. I want to continue to be a source of information, encouragement and support to each woman as they navigate their own journey in the biz. The door is always open, ladies!! Leah -- can't wait to see what's ahead for you; thank you for the honesty and all the laughs! #sqirl 2d

loveandsplendor Smiling as I look at these cheerful blooms from @teamhairandmakeup brunch last week. I love so many flowers and am constantly picking new favorites but #tulips are longtime loves of mine. Double tulips, parrot tulips, fringed tulips, Dutch tulips.. The sight of them evokes instant joy in my heart. They're lovely in their simplicity, special without pretense. What a perfect ambassador of spring. paired here with ranunculus // #regram by @valglidden and florals by @cocorosedesign 5d

loveandsplendor For M&T's fall wedding, their stunning venue features an overgrown forest, a private stretch of coastline, seaside bluffs, a lake, a trestle bridge and an old barn. It's like all the good things California has to offer, rolled into one magnificent place! Every part of their day will highlight a unique setting on-site. I think this will do for cocktail hour... Think we can manage, @foundrentals @jl_designs @casadeperrin @heirloomla @nicolette4heirloomla?? #loveandsplendorweddings 1w
  •   aliciakdesigns We toured the venue that morning too, I think we passed one another! So in love with that space:) 6d
  •   nicolette4heirloomla We are beyond ready for the challenge! Plus we get to spend the whole day wrapped up in the all of this gorgeousness. We are grateful to be a part of it! 6d

loveandsplendor So honored to be quoted in the Spring 2015 issue of @martha_weddings magazine in an article about the other parties (e.g. showers, etc.) surrounding a wedding. Seeing my name in these pages (my third time!) still gives me butterflies. Thank you for thinking of me!! #pinchme #loveandsplendorweddings #marthaweddings 1w

loveandsplendor My #littlemermaid We had such a wonderful morning taking a hike along #osoflacolake trail ending at the sea. The ocean is definitely Olive's happy place, just like her mama. This was exactly the refreshing getaway I needed amidst a busy week! #saltair #myheart 2w

loveandsplendor Arggh! ️ We had a sweet & simple pirate birthday party for Olive today. Her local mateys walked the plank, colored parrots and searched for treasure. I threw together everything this morning (including the treasure map backdrop I drew on the wall as guests were walking in, hah!) but I think no-fuss was the way to go. Olive had a ball and that's what matters. Thank you @foundrentals for the treasure chests!! #threeyearsold #myheart 2w

loveandsplendor I've been working on #amazinggrace with Olive and it melts my heart to hear her sing. She picked up the first verse so quickly ! Sorry you missed out on the last note in this clip. Feeling all sorts of sentimental as I flip through old photos today. I can't believe she's 3!! #myheart #chatswitholive 2w

loveandsplendor Get ready for some overgramming today in honor of my favorite three year old! I hope I never forget how Olive says "burs-day." We're off for some bday donuts now -- a special treat of her choice. Love you, babygirl! #myheart #chatswitholive // new dress from @dotdotsmile; thank you sweet @nicklepickle 2w

loveandsplendor Today marks six weeks with this sweetheart and oh, how I love this boy. I wish I could show you his huge blue eyes (I wonder what color they'll eventually be), his adorable nose, his tiny pout. He makes the most thoughtful and hilarious expressions! He is a great nurser, a great sleeper (7 hour stretch at night! ), and an overall easygoing babe. He is adored by his big sister and kindly indulges my hundreds of daily kisses. Today a kind stranger commented that he looked so much like Olive. I just smiled. I thank God everyday for the gift that Noah is to our family; he has surpassed every dream I dreamed. #myheart #motherandson 2w

loveandsplendor Fresh & feminine for my darling bride Makenna. // It's another perfect setting with @casadeperrin white lace chargers, Heath ceramics plates in mist, botanicals collection salad & bread plates, teak flatware and cut crystal goblets and salt cellars! Pretty without being too precious. I can't contain my excitement for this fall wedding... And I can't express how much I love this bride--she is a blessing to me in so many ways. Many vendors confide in me that my clients are always the sweetest and I'd have to agree. #bestclients #clientsturnedfriends #loveandsplendorweddings 3w

loveandsplendor This specialty drink menu is just one example of the extraordinary artwork that @theromancebetween is contributing to one of my weddings in a few weeks. When I referred them to my clients, I had only glimpsed their talent and passion at my workshop. Now I have been fortunate to see it come to life in these stunning pieces. Love you ladies and can't wait to share the rest! #This specialty drink menu is just one example of the extraordinary artwork that @theromancebetween is contributing to one of my weddings in a few weeks.

loveandsplendor Thank you for all the birthday love! I'm humbled by the marvelous community I have been given, and the friendships I've made across many years and experiences. I love each of you and held your sweet words close to my heart. // Olive is on the mend today, but we stayed in and took it easy. I'm working on my fourth load of laundry and rewarding myself with these adorable chocolate martini "olives" (white chocolate covered almonds) from @sugarfina. I couldn't resist them! If you haven't been to a #sugarfina boutique, get to one!! It's such a treat for the senses. #americanaatbrand 3w

loveandsplendor Today I turned 31. I'm not doing anything special, or wearing anything fancy, or even eating out at a favorite restaurant. As it turns out, I spent 5+ hours in a car (on a drive home that took twice the time it should have). Olive is burning up with a fever and has been out of sorts all day. Minutes after this photo was taken, Olive threw up in her bed. I stripped her sheets, threw them in the wash, and tucked her back in. As I prayed over her, my cheek to her clammy forehead, I started to cry. But not because it's my birthday! I cried because after so many years of waiting and praying, I was blessed with a daughter. And today, she's here and she needs me. And today, by God's grace, I am here and able to care for her. Down the hall, I have another baby who needs me, too. The gift I have in my two children is all I could want today. I'm grateful to be their comfort, their caretaker, their safe haven. Thank you, Lord, for another day as their mama. #myheart #thebestgift 3w

loveandsplendor Young love We had such a fun date with aunties @maraferreira and @sugarandcharm today! I'm so glad they got to meet Noah, and we got to see Olive and Romeo play together. As soon as he arrived, she grabbed his hand and off they went! On the drive home, Olive said, "Oh no! I forgot to kiss him!!" #wereintrouble #americanaatbrand #puppylove 3w
