Family Brunch



This morning we hosted a small brunch for family and out of town guests. We got to spend a little extra time together and open our (very very very beautiful) gifts. See my glittery ring finger…. eep! We had so much fun with family and friends. Our first day of marriage was pretty sweet. We spent a lot of quality time with people we love. 

Outfit details: Dress/Vintage wiggle dress, Cardigan/F21, Shoes courtesy of ModCloth, Hair piece/Vintage. 



This dala horse made my day. Jeremy's aunt Janet gifted it to us. In the town where Jeremy was raised almost every family has one of these horses hanging on their porch with the family name. Now we have our very own. So sweet! 

Well, I'd love to chat but I have a 4:30 am airport date with miss LA! Time for some sleeps. Night-Night!

    Discovered your blog last week & today have spent a fabulously lazy day reading it on & off! So, thank you – not often I have such a chilled day.

    Its like a lovely magazine fix that from now on I will read daily.

    What is bubble tea??

    Keep writing & inspiring,

    Vikki, Xxx.

  • omg…I’ve been a reader of yours for years and a fan from way back…does your husband happen to be from LINDSBORG KANSAS?!? I am from Salina Kansas. (It is only 15 minutes north of Lindsborg). I guess he might just be Swedish too since the Dala horse is a swedish thing. But when I saw that and saw that you said a small town, I thought just maybe! Cheers to your lovely ring finger. Can’t wait to see more of your special day!

  • i really like your hair piece! it is lovely! is it vintage?

  • Helen dear,

    I always adore you for being so fab and gorgeous all the time. And now that you’re married to a very amazing man, you’re more beautiful than ever! And like that ring of yours! I envy it much, sweetheart! ❤
