How exciting that Earth Day turns 40 years old today!  We both turn the BIG 4-0 this year.  !!  Here are some pics that have inspired me this spring...

in DC, but these sweet flowers graced some trees in A2.

who knew clam shells, oranges, lemons, limes, and mulch could be so beautiful!!

We had dinner with friends last night and were treated to some yummy peep-tini's! 
Thanks Michele and Steve!

It got me wondering if there were a lot of people out there that also enjoyed peep-tini's and there are!!

We have secured the location, photographer, caterer, attire, attendants, and seen to many other details all in two short months!  It certainly helps that I'm an event planner by day...I love this stuff!!

Today's a good day to...

catch up on all the shows on my DVR!  The weather has gone from 80's to 40's within a couple days!  My body is shocked at the sudden chill, but it's MICHIGAN and this is to be expected!

Curb appeal for LaNa?!

James and I would LOVE to build a bigger porch onto the front of our house.  However, those plans will be on hold since we are planning a WEDDING right now! 

I've been looking online at different blogs I love and came across this photo on Design Sponge which is giving me a bit of inspiration...

I'm loving the white painted porch with colored floor and stairs to match the shutters!  I think a similar update at LaNa could refresh the space until we can make bigger changes.  We'll have to discuss what will work best for our home and will update you along the way...

Wonderful cabinet idea!

I was surfing one of my fave blogs, Design Sponge, and found this sweet posting on an idea for inside your kitchen cabinets.  What a wonderful idea!!!!

We are looking to update and brighten the kitchen at LaNa and this might be a cute look to incorporate.  Stay tuned...
