rosalee // the beginning

Awhile back I had planted the seed in my Husbands head that I wanted to get a vintage trailer. I didn't really have a style in mind, but I just knew I wanted it to be old and lovely. He had mentioned on several occasions that he "thought he found the one" but the situation always seemed to fall through. Until last week when he came home with some EXCITING news!
He had found one! THE ONE!
There pictured on his tiny phone screen was my '68 dream on wheels, as I called her. I SQUEALED! Just from that photo I could tell this was a match made in heaven! And I couldn't wait to get here home. She arrived last weekend and my mind started spinning with ideas and design! I was like a freakin' kid in a candy shop!
We went in last night a ripped up the carpet plus linoleum flooring hiding underneath, cleaned out the broken glass and pulled out the cushions. We started in on some major deep cleaning. Excited that this process is starting so soon.
Oh! And of course I had to name her, because why not! So I picked Rosalee, no real meaning behind it other than it was the first name to pop into my head and well, I love the show Grimm.
Can't wait to share the process here as we start to bring life back to her. The kids are already chomping at the bit to go camping already, so we better get this show on the road!


linden clover workshop // wonderland

I keep pinching myself, because I am not sure that this past weekend was even real. I had the pleasure of attending a photography workshop put on by two talented beauties and the amazing venders that help bring it all together. I shared this experience with other women whom I had never met (some just not in person) and I left with a handful of memories and some amazing friendships! This workshop really opened my eyes, my heart and my passion for photography. It has motivated me to push myself to do things that I tell myself I can't. I found that it is ok to believe in myself and what I love to do, because if I don't then who will...
I am so excited to share these photos and this experience. I can't thank Lindsey and Sarah enough- this was truly life changing!


young living // 1st make & take

I love Young Living. Like really love them. I use my oils religiously everyday on myself and my family and I love talking about them with others. Every month my mom and I host classes to share how awesome this company is and how these oils have really changed our lives. This past month we decided to offer a little something different- a Make & Take party. These oils are great by themselves or blended with other fabulous oils, but you can actually do so much more with them. We wanted to share how you can start incorporating them in daily homemade products that are made from pure, natural ingredients, that you can actually pronounce too! I thought I would share what we made and their recipes so you can give them a try yourself!
