Nautical Themed Parties

So this weekend we are heading to Buffalo for our engagement party thrown by Read's parents. It's at the beautiful Buffalo Canoe Club at the outer boathouse and we couldn't be more excited. The boathouse is absolutely gorgeous and I know that Holly won't miss any detail. Here are some photos of nautical themed parties- just like ours is going to be. I can't wait to post pictures next week!!!!

School Themed Etsy Finds

I haven't posted much lately. Between vacation and preparing my classroom for the new school year I've been pretty preoccupied. I'm moving up to 3rd grade this year!!! I'm really excited and my old students seemed extremely excited to have me as their reading teacher. I even had a few parents ask me if they could request to put them in my homeroom as well- that made me feel great :) First day of school tomorrow! Can't wait to get to know my new kiddos more and see my old ones. Here are a few Etsy finds that put me back in the new school year mood and even a few wedding related items.

Beach Themed Weddings

It's been tough to come back home and back to reality after a wonderful week in Surfside Beach, South Carolina. We saw a few weddings on the beach during our trip and it inspired this post. I have always loved beach weddings and if the shore wasn't as far as it is from our church I would have my reception there. Here are a few photos from beautiful beachy weddings. Enjoy!
