COMiNG UP | Shabby Chic + Rustic Bridal Shower

Monday marks the start of a new school year...
Two days left to finish any last minute prepartions...

To take my mind off of the emotions associated with my children growing up...*sniffle*
I thought I'd share with you a gorgeous image from a Shabby Chic Rustic Bridal Shower
I'll soon be sharing with you here (and on Hostess with the Mostess).

It was styled by a super creative friend and beautifully photographed by Wendy Ackerman of Ackerman Photography

Charming + elegant DIY floral centerpiece

I can't wait to show you the rest of the lovely details.
Have a beautiful weekend, friends!!

So I've been going out of my mind with the busy-ness of Summer.
The shoppe has been SO out-of-control busy...
I haven't even had time to blog.
(Which completely freaks me out and frustrates me).
I'm thrilled to say after many, many incredibly late nights...
and very early mornings...
my shoppe orders are finally caught up.
I squeezed in some custom work along the way and look forward to sharing those projects next week.
I. have. missed my sweet readers...
I have missed habitual blogging...
I have missed the regimen the school year provides...
and I'm SO looking forward to getting back into my normal routine.
And yes...
part of me feels guilty for being happy the lazy days of Summer are ending.
But it's time to get back to business around here.
(And when I say "business"...I mean crafting, baking, sharing, creating, party styling...)
Are you with me?

Looks GORGEOUS, Jessica! Seriously beautiful :)

And you are not alone on your feelings above... so many of us struggle with the exact same things. You should see the wreck my house and myself are right now after about 10 hours of sleep TOTAL this week. Thank God it's FRIDAY! Excited to have you "back"... but remember not to be too hard on yourself and enjoy some of those "lazy summer days" if you can :)

Oh Jenn...I DO so love you to pieces.
I cannot even imagine the whirlwind at your house. I hope you get well-rested up this weekend. LOVED the Hunger Games feature! Wonderfully fabulous!

kansasgirl1 - If I could reach through the monitor and give you a hug, I would. Thank you so much for your kindness. It means the world to me to know you've been missing the posts as much as I've been missing writing them. Have a great weekend.
