Kisses from Cupid: Mini Chocolate Strawberry Cupcakes

After a some brainstorming and getting ideas together, I decided this month to really celebrate Valentine’s Day and get into the festivities surrounding it. I have never been one to put much thought into Valentine’s Day, but this month will be different. How often do we take the time to truly celebrate all the people that we love? Between the hustle and bustle of life, I’m recently realizing it’s important to appreciate all the small things that bring us joy and[Read more]

Good Food and Great Friends

This year my favorite ladies and I celebrated our second annual Friendsgiving and if I do say so myself, it was a huge success! I have said it before and I’ll say it again, but I’m a firm believer that nothing brings people together like good food! Thanksgiving is easily my favorite holiday and so I naturally planned a party to celebrate! I was too proud of the cute table decorations! This year, we migrated out of the dining room[Read more]

Pumpkin Pie Jars

PSA for everyone. I have officially found the cutest fall dessert just in time for Thanksgiving! I will readily admit I am not the biggest fan of pumpkin pie. It needs like five parts of whipped cream to every one bite of pie itself. But this dessert. Oh my goodness! It includes homemade whipped cream and a creamy pumpkin layer that will literally melt in your mouth! This recipe comes from A Farmgirl’s Dabbles, which is now one of my[Read more]

Tea Parties and Birthday Parties

When your day seems topsy turvy and stormy as can be, there’s nothing quite as tranquil as a nice hot cup of tea. To surprise my big and best friend McKenzie on her birthday, I took her to Sister’s Tea Parlor and it was truly one of the cutest things I’v ever done! It reaffirmed my belief that every adult needs to let their inner child out once in awhile and every girl needs to dress up in something she feels[Read more]

Caramel Apple Party

I’m a little hard pressed to find something more quintessentially “fall” than caramel apples, so of course I had to celebrate my love of all things fall with a Caramel Apple Party! I planned a cute little social with some of my sorority sisters with the help of my lovely best friend Sarah!   Our menu included the caramel apple bar, sugar cookies, fruit, chili, a cheese tort, buffalo chicken dip, and pigs-in-a-blanket! Nothing brings people together like good food[Read more]

One Pan Autumn Dinner

Now that the weather in Louisville has been feeling a little chillier, I thought it was the perfect time to share this one pan chicken dinner! Food is easily one of the quickest ways to my heart and nothing beats an easy to prepare dinner! The chicken and veggies were a big hit with my roommates and took less than 30 minutes to get ready! I used some ingredients from the farmer’s market I went to recently, including the sweet potatoes.[Read more]

Lake Michigan Getaway

After a crazy past week I am finally uploading some pictures of my Fall Break trip to Lake Michigan! There is the lake in the summer, and yes that is great, but let me tell ya. The lake in fall is something else entirely! I may be biased, but there is something about a crisp lake breeze and changing leaves that just makes the heart content! My family has been spending a few days up at Lake Michigan for the[Read more]
