I'd never had good luck with summer jobs until working at Heritage Bakery & Café this summer. I developed friendships with the lovely staff, got to know our fascinating customers, and prepared the most delicious baked goods!
The positive atmosphere I worked in this summer gave me a sense of hope and inspiration. I couldn't leave without photographing a few special moments with the owner, Isabelle. These photos are from last week when she was preparing Italian macarons for a Kate Spade themed bridal shower.
Enjoy, and see the bottom of this post for Heritage's contact information and social media links! :)
There's only one thing better than a beach vacation, and that's a Turner family beach vacation.
The Turner family has held it's reunion at the beach for years. I'm talking I'd-have-to-ask-Granny-because-it-was-happening-before-I-was-born years. We used to go every year, but recently the tradition has dwindled. That is, until this year. Though not as many came as once could, there were around 80 of us, and that's a blessing from God.
Being with family is everything (and I mean everything) to me. That's something I have in common with the Turner family. I cannot thank each and every person who came to Surfside this year enough. I had a blast rekindling my relationships with you all (or as we say, "y'all"), and I hope to keep this tradition alive in the years to come. I want my children and grandchildren to be blessed with knowing the family that I know.
I hope you all enjoy the moments I've captured throughout this past week. Feel free to save, share and print them as you please. My love to you all!
I'm the type of girl who takes a long time to get ready. I need time to eat, shower, wash my hair, shave my legs, get dressed (a few times), do my makeup, style my hair, paint my nails, etc. I'm high maintenance. What can I say?
When I woke up, I prepared myself a simple breakfast: a bowl of blueberries and a blueberry muffin. After I ate, I began getting ready. For the makeup, I started with a very bronzed base. I then did a shimmery lid with a smokey crease and outer corner. I finished it with winged liner, lots of mascara and a nude lip. For the outfit, I wore a navy blue maxi dress and camel-colored sandals.
