Gavin turns ONE.

   Tomorrow my little baby is going to be ONE!!  When parents said the cliche, "it goes by so fast," I kind of chuckled and rolled my eyes because when I was pregnant it felt like 5 years.  Now I really know that having a child somehow speeds up time into fast forward and everything just flashes right before you.
   It feels like just yesterday that I met Gavin for the first time (read his birth story here), yet it feels like a lifetime ago that he was not part of my life.. does that even make sense?  Somehow this little munchkin has changed me very purpose of existence in the most positive way ever.  His belly laugh lights up my world, his cries break my heart, and his happiness and well-being is the most important thing to me in the world.  
   Happy birthday little guy!  We love you so much.

Stay tuned next week for a reveal of Gavin's under-the-sea party this weekend.



Ever After,
Jamie

Blueberry-Rosé Lemonade Pops




If you don't have plans this weekend, make brunch plans and make these incredible booze-infused popsicles.  They are the perfect kick-off to summer as a refreshing treat and perfect party staple.
I am a fruit lover so I made sure to load up with berries to add some flavor and sweetness.

What You'll Need:
  • 2 cups rosé wine
  • 1 1/3 cup frozen mixed berrys
  • 1/2 cup lemonade
Directions:
  1. Combine the rose, lemonade, and 1 cup of mixed berries.  Blend in blender until smooth.
  2. Add the remaining whole blueberries to popsicle molds, dividing evenly. Pour the blended mixture into the molds. Insert ice-pop sticks and freeze until firm, at least 8 hours or overnight.

Ever After,
Jamie

All About that Lace


 I do not wear flats often, but when I do, they have to be incredibly chic and comfortable.  I found these flats at Forever 21 and although this trend has been worn and seen by every fashion blogger around town, there's a reason they became so popular.  These flats were the perfect accessory paired with a basic black jumpsuit for a business/blogger lunch with my favorite foodie-meets-fashion blogger, Kat from Champs et Frites

My picks for the best in this trend: All About that Lace
 
1. J.Crew lace-up ballet flats
2. Lace-up leather sandals: Zara
3. Sueded Lace-up espadrilles: Old Navy
4. Michael Kor's snakeskin lace-up flats: goop 
5. Espadrille flatforms: Forever 21
6. Kendall + Kyle blush lace-up ankle flats: Shopbob



Ever After,
