lounging at home...

This weekend I had such a fun just spending time relaxing instead of running around like a crazy women {which is the normal weekend thing}. I recently discovered Good Night, Day, an absolutely unique Canadian knitwear label. All their designs are handcrafted + produced in limited batches, which makes each piece so precious. Above I am wearing the EXTREMELY comfy + beautiful Stratford halter crop top {perfect for the upcoming hot summer days}, which I paired with a marvelous + one of a kind necklace they also created {made with marbleized clay & leather}. To learn more about Good Night, Day and to check out more of their handcrafted items be sure to visit their website right here. I hope you all had a relaxing + perfectly peaceful weekend as well.

P.S- Be sure to use the code SPRINGNY to get 15% off your order at Good Night, Day!

Happy Engageaversary!

I CANNOT believe it's been a year since that fateful day in Paris in the gardens of Notre Dame Cathedral. A year ago today I had the surprise and overwhelming cry moment of a lifetime! Aaron Lee Craig asked me to marry him. He got down on his knee and promised to love an imperfect me! In spite of everything, Aaron committed his life to me. Wow. Sometimes I still can't believe that moment happened + the fact we are married now! I am not perfect. Neither is Aaron, BUT he is the most perfectmost hilarious, most intelligent and witty guy for me. Aaron--thanks for loving me. I know it's not always easy {I have a BIG mouth guys...}.  

Happy Engageaversary to us!  Thanks for keeping your promises, Aaron

I love you as much as Papa John's + the galaxy combined.
