Blythe on Soul Pancake

Have you seen this video yet? Is Blythe not one of the cutest, smoothest, smartest gals ever? She nailed every question about her faith and family with grace, charm, and perfect sweetness.

You know how sometimes you see (or read or hear) something and it just fills you will such hope and happiness? I felt so inspired and grateful for the beautiful little life God has given to me after watching this.

Do you think Blythe would find it awkward if I showed up at her front door unexpectedly and gave her giant hug? Because I think she’s the bee’s knees.


Vintage Marquee Lights

Heart-Shaped Vintage Marquee Light

I don’t know how, but this bright shining light of a heart will be mine. It’s been a very long time since I’ve been this smitten with an inanimate object. I love her!!!


Picnic Baskets

Picnic Basket

How do I not own a picnic basket yet? This was a huge oversight on my part. Maybe it’s the beautiful spring weather but I’m feeling like my life won’t be complete until I remedy this situation. The basket above is lovely but it might be a little small for our crew. The search continues…



He is Risen!

I hope you all had the happiest of Easter Sundays! He is Risen!

#5faves for sure. Love it.

And we are hoping you will come to speak at our parish soon. If you do, stop in Greenwich at Splurge and see the adorable picnic baskets. We have one with wine glasses and silverware. It’s so romantic. This weather and your post inspire me to use it more!

5faves! And you should check out the Coastal Cupboard for picnic baskets! I got an awesome one there last summer :) Thanks again for a great and happy blog!

Hallie! Can you be any more sweet and nice and sweet and lovely and nice??

Just watched the video and first of all, it made me so proud to be a Catholic. Secondly, don’t you want to be best friends with Blythe? Thanks for sharing. I am going to post it to Twitter right now!

I vote #5Faves as well.
I’m also in love with vintage marquee lights. Can’t seem to convince my husband that our house is obviously missing one ;)

Blythe is only cooler in person if you can believe it! And I will go against the grain and say I prefer #5favs, but I will happily get on the #5faves wagon.
