15 Years

by Jesse on July 28, 2014

I remember crushing on Josh for so very long as a young girl. A friend of mine lived in his neighborhood and we would walk by his house hoping to run into him. Being as shy as I was I would have just died if he would have actually been outside. I was only 12 or 13 years old at the time. Thinking he would never date someone like me. Well 2 years later when I was 14, we started our journey and I couldn’t be more thankful.

He has always been my rock. Loving me when I had a face full of zits and no self esteem. Helping me to see the talents God blessed me with.

“For it was not into my ear you whispered,

but into my heart.

It was not my lips you kissed,

but my soul.”

Happy Anniversary Josh!

To 15 years of marriage and many, many more years to come.

I love you to the moon and back!

Logo Design

by Jesse on July 16, 2014

Occasionally, I get the opportunity to mess with some logo making. I’m a self taught photoshoper, so it’s fun for me to have an excuse to come up with a logo for someone other than myself. I’ve always loved stationary and pens and paper.  So much so that my Grandma would bring me stationary every time she came to visit. We were pen pals and it is a memory I will forever cherish. Naturally my love of paper turned to me noticing things like logos and design elements related to it. Gosh I love the internet for well, so many reasons, but most of all that you can go and learn a new skill without ever stepping foot in a classroom.

So, with that said, today I thought I would share a few deigns that I’ve done recently.

Fun projects!



Smitten Kitchen

by Jesse on July 9, 2014

We spend lots of time in the kitchen. So why not make it a beautiful place to be?

Here are a few kitchens that have made my heart go pitter patter.

Definitely loving the gray trend. Don’t know that I would be brave enough to do a whole kitchen that way though. I’m kind of a traditionalist when it comes to stuff like that. I could do an island in this color for sure. Easy to change when the mood suits.

The finishes on this kitchen are what caught my eye. So many contrasting pieces. White cabinetry with the wood shelving. Then the ashy wood stools give an nice earthy feel to the space. Really love it!

What’s not to love about this one. I really do love that the brass is making a come back. It adds so much warmth to this space.

Now who want to bring over their sledgehammer and help me rip out all of my old stuff? LOL

Simple and understated appeal the most to me. Kind of how I like an outfit. I want it to be put together and look good, but not scream LOOK AT ME! =) Curb appeal is much the same way. Classic touches that stand the test of time. Happy Monday, friends! xxoo

Bathroom Dreamin’

July 2, 2014

So  much to love about this bathroom. While most aspects of this space are light and neutral, that floor is an amazing pop! The perfect contrast to all of the other simple elements. I love how it becomes a focal point and grounds the whole space. I’m thinking you may have to drag me out [...]
