{ranai} I love my mom thisssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss much (that's like, a lot). As her 60th birthday was approaching I wanted to do something special for her.

Tribal Woodland Baby Shower

{ranai} Ahhhhh this baby shower! I loved everything about it, well, except maybe for the extreme wind we had that day. Jessica is having a baby boy!

Tea for Two – A Downton Abbey Viewing Party

{ranai} I love all things about the British peerage...seriously. When I discovered Downton Abbey, I was completely smitten! It is a beautifully executed piece of television. The only aspect I don't like is that each season is only 8 episodes plus a Christmas special. It goes by way too fast! Since no occasion is too small to … Continue reading Tea for Two – A Downton Abbey Viewing Party
