Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! What are your plans for the big night? I’ve got to be honest, I’m not one for dressing up, but I do love to dress Olive for Halloween. She’s been a hot dog for the past three years. Maybe next year I’ll get her something new! Have a safe holiday and eat lots of chocolate!

Flowers

Last Sunday I took a wedding bouquet floral class at Dirt Design Studio in Dallas. I’m a huge fan of their work, and am a little obsessed with their succulent and cactus creations. The class was a lot of fun, and I learned so much. I highly recommend it! This is just a little sneak peek as to what I have in store for Blue Eye Brown Eye and wanted to share!

Put a Bird On It

Y’all know I have a huge place in my heart for Portland (it’s where I learned to letterpress print), so when I got the opportunity to work with our Portland friends, Chris and Emily, I was very excited! They want to do a wedding catered around Portland mainstays: bikes, birds and beer. (So fantastic)! Our first chat about their Save the Date centered around this video from Portlandia, Put a Bird On It. Have y’all seen it? It’s so great.

I wrapped up the final product last week, a Save the Date magnet with a display card. Complete with lots of birds!


Thank You 360 West!

I’m so honored to be in 360 West Magazine this month. It was such a fun experience getting interviewed and photographed, and of course Olive posed for the camera! I can’t thank 360 West, Meda Kessler (who wrote the article) and Jill Johnson (who took the images) enough for this fantastic opportunity. I’m so grateful to live in a community like Fort Worth that supports its local businesses with endless enthusiasm. Check out the 360 West website here to view the entire magazine online.

Marfa

Nearly two weeks ago Travis took me to Marfa, Texas for an early birthday getaway. I’ve been wanting to go for years now, so Travis planned a trip there for me as a surprise! We set off on our nearly 8 hour drive and arrived on Friday afternoon to the most wonderful weather and amazing west Texas scenery. Here are just a few images from our trip.

Although the trek is long to get there, I cannot recommend a trip to Marfa enough. There’s an overwhelming sense of calm in Marfa. Not to mention, the art, food, and people are amazing. Hop on a bike and just peddle around town – it was our favorite way to stumble upon fantastic little hidden gems around town.

Where we ate: Maiya’s, Cochineal, Squeeze Marfa, Food Shark, Museum of Electronic Wonders and Late Night Grilled Cheese Parlour, Pizza Foundation, Jett’s at The Hotel Paisano

Where we drank: Padre’s, Planet Marfa, and bought some great wine at The Get Go

What we visited: The Chinati Foundation, Judd Foundation, Ayn Foundation, Prada Marfa, Ballroom Marfa, The Marfa Lights
