Good Morning, Friends! Rain wasn’t on the forecast, but it is coming down hard in the city! I don’t mind it so much, bring on the rain boots and rain jacket, I say! It’s a good day for an up-do and comfy cozy clothes. And until it’s time to dive in the puddles, I’ll just be working on projects in the warmth of our loft with a cup of tea.

This weekend was filled with lots of cuddling, a long walk across the bridge to the Dirty Cookie, a little date at the Tattered Cover Bookstore and a late night filled with homework. It was a much needed time spent together, relaxing and check off the list weekend. My favorite part of all, I’d have to say was the conversation. Thursday night, I had the pleasure of a little girl time filled with conversation. Talking about our Love Story, home decorating and the latest Pinterest crafts over bowls of Phó, walking in the freezing rain with the SO WORTH IT Little Man Ice Cream, chatting about our hubbies and how great they are, and even dropping by a student art exhibit to say hello to a few of my fellow classmates. Conversation was at an all time high that afternoon. Later on in the weekend, conversation continued between the Love and I. We shared our dreams and goals, planned our birthday celebration, talked about our future and just enjoyed conversation about whatever popped in our brain. Conversation is something that holds friends and couples together. It’s so important on an everyday basis to have bits of conversation, asking about their day, how they did on their latest project or just to say hello. Conversation makes relationships stronger, makes individuals feel loved and cared about and brings openness to friendships. A weekend of conversation keeps me going on my late nights and early mornings when our conversation may only be an I love you before bed.

So, how was your weekend? Did you get a lot done or did you relax and enjoy being lazy? Let’s start a conversation!

Happy Monday, Friends!

A Year in Paris

Paris is Always a Good Idea | Aubrey Hubbell Design | Chic to Chic Blog | www.chictochicblog.wordpress.com

The “City of Lights” is at the top of my places to visit. I’ve always loved hearing about the beautiful city, rich in culture, known for their beautiful artwork, scrumptious desserts and crackly bread. I love hearing the language spoken, looking at pictures of the gorgeous French women and hearing about the history that fills the city. Recently, while looking for a new book to read, I typed in “France”. The first book to come up was Paris in Love. It’s the moving, hilarious and incredible story of an American family of four that moves to Paris, France for a whole year. She tells little tidbits about their experiences throughout that year. Every five minutes you’ll catch me laughing out loud and then sharing with the Hubby what I just read. The book is such a wonderfully written journal of sorts that brings me into a world I can only long to be in. What a way story to tell! Eloisa’s daughter, Anna is probably my favorite member of the family. She’s eleven years old and is a feisty little girl. The stories involving her provide the best laughs. If you’re an Adventurer at heart and looking for a new book to read, I highly recommend  Paris in Love: A Memoir by Eloisa James.

Happy Monday, Friends!

Today is a very special day. It is my sweetest friend and her brand new husband’s One Month Anniversary! Brittany from B. Nicole Photography allowed me to surprise Kylie and Michael with a Sneak Peek of their beautiful Wedding Day on June 1, 2013! Kylie and Michael, your wedding was such a gorgeous day filled with so much heart and love in everything from the vows to the decorations. Kylie, you and your family did such a wonderful job making so many of the decorations and it all was more beautiful than I could ever have imagined. I feel so blessed to have been able to stand up with you as you pledged your love to your lucky guy. And I am so excited to be able to surprise you with this little preview on your first anniversary! Enjoy!

I have to mention this darling group of ladies I spent this wedding weekend with. I’ve been friends with Bethany since Sixth grade, Sharol and Lacee since Freshman year of High school and Kylie’s sister, Abby since I’ve known Kylie throughout high school. Kylie’s cousin, Allison I met just that weekend and we became instant friends. Spending time with such a great group of girls was one of my favorite parts of the weekend. We were able to catch up and hang out, laugh and make more memories together. I love ya’ll so much!

Day at a Time, Inpsiration, What to Wear

It’s that time of the year again.

It’s that time again where you really shouldn’t be hearing from me. I should be drowning in final projects (which I am) and not coming up for air. However, when you’ve worked for weeks on end on these very projects, even though they’re still not done, it’s REALLY hard to focus. I have until 6:30pm tonight to turn in one final project. I should really get going, but ….oh look my tea is ready, the sun is so shiny, mmm… love my protein shake. See there are just too many other things that are way more exciting! I know, I know I’ve become a procrastinator. A procrastinator, really! It’s just so easy when there is no brain power left and little things around me suddenly become the most exciting things I’ve ever seen. So, this is my final outlet. I have to get it all out and go…. So, my last words will be that of this weekend. Well not words, but pictures. You remember the post last week where I shared the weekend through Insta pictures? Well, I think I might just do that again. Check out this crazy weekend – in no particular order with a little narration.
