TODAYS INSPIRATION | Love through the Camera | Bryce and I had a mini Engagement shoot last weekend! It was so much fun and absolutely FREE! One thing I’ve learned from planning this wedding is everyone is trying to get their foot in the door with their talent. I went to a Bridal Fair last month and after booking my photographer for $1300 I received an email weeks later from another photographer. I don’t even remember meeting her, but she told me she would love to do so engagement pictures for free. Of course I said YES! Any excuse I can get a shoot I am totally up for it! Here are a few of those! I was really impressed and extremely excited to see them! Let me know what you think!
TODAYS INSPIRATION | Ashley Meaders | Her blog is probably the cutest thing I have ever seen! check it out! I’m kind of obsessed. All of these were found on here.
TODAYS INSPIRATION | Remember those by loving each other | Bryce is finally back in the USA!! I am soooo excited! The day after he proposed he left to Europe to backpack for 3 weeks! Yes, you heard me, 3 weeks. I know, soo long. I missed him so much! It was simply unbearable. We made a 24 hour rule this weekend. That after were married, we cannot stay away from each other longer than 24 hours. I think its the best idea ever:) We miss each other too much.
He only was in town for the weekend because he had to drive back to Vegas to work during the week. So we will see each other every weekend, either I drive there or he drives here, until June 25th, when he moves back to Provo for good. Yay!
Here is some of our weekend! I don’t know how I survived without him.
TODAYS INSPIRATION | Blogging: what is the purpose| Both Whitney thatgirlwhit, my roomie, and I both agree that when your in a good healthy relationship, a lot of what used to be important, become somewhat less important. For example blogging. When I was going through my breakup with my now fiancé I would blog almost 2 times a day. It was my escape, the one thing to take my mind off the hurt. But now, I rarely have time to blog. I hate it because blogging is my passion. I lived for it. I loved sharing all my ideas out in the open and seeing if others thought I was crazy! That is how I met my Roommate in fact!
I randomly found her blog on wordpress, started following, became best blog friends, started texting eachother, then she moved to Utah from Georgia, and is now my Roommate!!! Hurraayyyy!!!
Now were best friends in Real Life!
We seriously have so much fun together! I can’t imagine a better person in my life right now. She helped me through my breakup, she seriously gave me the best advice and she just understands me! Totes*
Its crazy how life moves. You never know how one action will effect your life. Because of blogging, I found a new best friend. Two thumbs up for WordPress:)
TODAYS INSPIRATION | Layout and Print | Layout and Print has been a huge inspiration to me as I chugged my way through design school. I remember just looking at all the amazing design mag’s and wishing that I could one day do stuff like that and my teachers wouldn’t send me back to the drawing board. I feel like design has taken a backwards turn and….
Take a look at these works and let me know what you think! Personally it stirs something inside of me and makes me want to design all night/day. Its just so full of mystery and prestigue. The hard part about designing like this is trying to find the right client. Clients these days are very rigid, business motivated, and sticks in the mud when it comes to branding. I crave projects that I can do whatever I want! Those always come out 100x’s better than those with the style guide set in concrete. Design is taking over! Join the Parade!
Ok Stop Me now! I can’t wait to design!!! Good thing I’m at work and thats what I do:)
TODAYS INSPIRATION | Furniture Make-over | I can not believe how amazingly creative my best friends are! They just moved into the cutest cottage houseand decorated it with all DIY furniture!
All of their furniture was so cheap and it makes me so happy because I have been obsessed with making over furniture for years. A new coat of paint on anything makes it NEW again! Just last summer I went from dark to light for my bedroom and repainted all my frames, vases, furniture white and gave it the beach cottage chic look!
p.s. I am watching Shahs of Sunset and I am balling right now! Such an emotional episode haha (Mustache man saw his father for the first time after 17 years!)
Anyway….. I looked on designsponge.com and found so many amazingly great DIY Furniture ideas! That is where all of this is from! I cant wait to start decorating my new place with my New Husband after August 14th!!! Love these ideas!

NEW FRESH SPACES
TODAYS INSPIRATION | Logo Design | Just finished these logos for a company called Energy Auction Exchange. I don’t think people realize how hard it is to design a logo. It’s almost harder than doing a website or anything else because it is soooo detail oriented. Every single line, curve & point has to mean something and work together or else it comes off as incomplete. It’s like solving a puzzle in the most creative way possible and inventing something no one has EVER seen before. Crazy I know!
