Happy Friday! I’m excited to share that Kathryn will be back for next week’s weekend links! Yes, that means it’s been just over 6 weeks since baby Caroline has been born. Can you believe it? I’ve loved seeing her sweet updates over on Snippet & Ink’s Instagram and am sure she will share some here once she’s back. (*Hint hint, Kathryn*) In the meantime, some fun links to kick off your weekend!

In case you’re in need of a compliment.

A lot can happen in a year… this dad captured 1 sec of video everyday of his sons first year. SO SWEET!

Five fonts.

For the DIYer who loves to travel…

A parody on Anthropologie.

A sucker for a good photo project, my newest favorite is this one with the little house.

Am always looking for a twist on a cheesecake recipe

A love story I love.

So, I have a thing for framed butterflies and insects and am loving how Curious Details styled her new office. 

Anti-Theft Lunch Bags.

How cool are these wooden bow-ties? 

And in case you missed it, we shared mini-moons and chic travel suggestions from all over this week: Atlanta, Washington DC, Paris, Charleston, Berkeley, and Denver. 

Have a lovely one! XO, Shanley

I thought you all might get a kick out of this. When I was sixteen, my sister’s wedding was included in a National Geographic story about the flower trade. A photographer from National Geographic, Sisse Brimberg, took some shots at the wedding, and guess who made it into the article? Well, part of my face anyway.

You can see more about this article here or here, and more about the talented Michaele Thunen here (she did all of the gorgeous flowers for my sister’s wedding, including the bouquet in this photo).

Lauren is in the interesting position of holding her reception at the same location where two weeks later her good friend will be having her own wedding! She wants a traditional wedding, in apricot and green hues, and needed some inspiration for making it stand out from her friend’s wedding. Passing out miniature desserts (like the cotton candy here, or tiny milkshakes, or miniature pies) is a unique way to end dinner. A golf cart as a getaway car is a fun and slightly different way to depart.

Mood: classic with a twist
Palette: apricot, pale green
