taking a break

Hi friends.
I will be taking a break from blogging for a bit. I recently lost a friend in an accident and I am at a great loss of happy creativity at the moment because of it.

Nate was and is the most amazing person I have ever met. Kind, smart, talented and beautiful. The world lost a truly unique person and I will be forever changed by his life and his passing.

Rest in peace my sweet friend, I will love and cherish you forever.

All you need is the love of a dog and cat

I feel like the richest girl in the world when I am at home with the ones I love. My pets always do the cutest damn things! No matter my sour mood they lift me up and make me so happy I forget whatever silly thing I was sour about in the first place. These our a few snapshots I got of the things they did today to make me smile.

Seriously love this one of One Eyed Louie - such a funny fat kitty

Etsy's Bestie Cold Fish Vintage

So last week I made a little post about "blog structure". I have decided to do a weekly "Etsy's Bestie" post, featuring my favorite Etsy shops! This is a repost from my previous tumblr blog, but it remains on of my favorite shops! So here ya go - enjoy!

Cold Fish Vintage

The Etsy store I am sharing with you today is one of my top five favorites. With so many unique and spectacular vintage items I find it hard not to buy something every payday! I have been buying things from Erin for a couple years, her items are always in pristine condition and exactly as described, its an addded bonus that she is a total sweetheart!


From the girl herself :
“I’m Erin. I am 25 years old and have a pretty deep passion for the years before my birth! I love to imagine the history in the vintage clothing I wear and sell. Who wore it and where to?

Reduce, Reuse, Rewear is a shop dedicated to introducing more people to the appeal of adding vintage clothing to their everyday apparel. Vintage pieces add a certain flair that can only be achieved by an authentic item, not the “throwback” items on the racks in retail stores. “

A new do for my favorite little dude

Today I got to cut my little nephews hair for the first time! I didn't expect him to end up looking like such a little boy afterwards, I was a bit shocked! He did exceptionally well, sat still in his little chair eating a popsicle and watching Thomas the Train :)
Mama Lauren took over the camera for me and snapped these pictures, he is just the cutest I cant stand it!!!

 Ta Da!! All done and rewarded with a snack :)

A Foggy Day

Today was pretty chilly for us to be going to the beach, but we could tell Dexter was missing the ocean something bad so we went. He couldn't go swimming like usual because of the low tide today, so he made due splashing around in the tide pools burying his ball and running as fast as possible up and down the beach. Now he is fast asleep happy as a clam, until he gets his second wind in about an hour!

Here are a few photos I took today, even though I was cold it was a beautiful day :)

Happy weekend ya'll hope you're doing something fun xoxo

A love story

With Valentines Day just around the corner I thought I'd share some of my thoughts on the big "L" word.

I find love to be something I feel extremely blessed to have found. And if there is just one thing in your life to experience I believe it should be that.
Love. Unconditional and true. May you find it in a friend, a partner, a spouse and or of course a pet.
I was so lucky to be raised in a family that love each other so much, (though we are all insane, I am Italian after all) it taught me to take chances and have an open heart, you never know how the next person you meet could change your life.
Meeting Ryan was completely unexpected. Going into work as a 21 year old waitress that fateful night, I was not expecting a tall handsome man to step on my foot, causing me to drop a whole tray of drinks on myself ! He then proceeded to follow me around the rest of my shift apologizing  until I agreed to have dinner with him the next night. I said yes and well as they say the rest is history.

Here a few photos of us from the past 6 or so years <3

Thanks for everything Babbie I love you to the moon and back
