Wreath I made for our little shack door using leftover wedding materials.

Dear Christmas,
All of a sudden the world has caught up with me in my excitement for you. I'm a true fan. Celebrate all year long, I do!

Dear Future,
I love you. I'm beyond excited for what's to come. I just want to scream! (More details to come later!)

Dear Olive,
You seem to be growing the "miniature" right out of you. What happened to my little baby girl?

Dear Florida Winter,
I hate you. It may be 90 degrees outside right now, but I'm still rocking the boots and scarves. Take that.

Dear Husband, 
Can you believe it's almost been 6 months since we said "I do"? We've made this little shack a home. And I love it.


  1. OooO! I love your wreath! And celebrate Christmas all year long... I second that!

  2. I'll trade you Missouri winter for Florida winter. What do ya say?! ;)

  3. Natalie: Thank you! It was so fun to make! And I'm glad I'm not alone in celebrating Christmas all year round!

    Karen: I'd love to trade! I miss the snow and craziness! :)

  4. Oh Lauren, I just love reading your blog :-) you think of some of the cutest things to post :-) the only thing i do not understand is why you call your home a shack? I am assuming it is a fixer-up-er? I was just curious :-) keep writing, I love reading :-)
