I think I say it every year, but I can't believe it's already March! I'm beyond thankful to start seeing some springtime blooms popping up and adding some color to our lives. This photo is from last year when I took Swoon Floral Design's springtime floral workshop and it got me so in the mood for spring. Click to enlarge, download and enjoy!

santorini + athens | greece travelogue

Last September, my dad, sister + her boyfriend joined me in Greece (one of my DREAM destinations!) after my factory visit to Israel. I grew up buying Greece calendars, and my eyes could not believe what I was finally seeing right in front of me. It was everything I've ever dreamed of.

We started our journey on the island of Santorini and rented an AirBnB and car to see as much as we could. Santorini is known for their show-stopping sunsets, and they did not disappoint! We made sure to plan ahead and catch the views from some incredible restaurants, listed below each picture. Our favorite beach was Perissa, where you can rent beach chairs for $7 euros and swim in the Agean Sea. Though we stayed in Pyrgos with the house towards one end of the island, we enjoyed spending our time in Fira and Oia. 

We ended our trip in Athens and I'm so glad we saved some time to spend here. It's home of the Parthenon and Acropolis, with a fantastic museum across the street giving you a solid refresher on the Olympic games and their importance to the Greeks and their Gods. We did a Bike Tour around the city using the company Athens by Bike and it was a great way to get a lay of the land and make notes of parts we wanted to get back to. I was blown away by how cute and European the city felt with all the restaurants spilling into the streets. We had a fantastic dinner at both Psarra and Ama Lachei that were absolutely lovely with their atmospheres.

Our time was incredible and the perfect end to the summer months. Check below the photos for specific recommendations on what to see!

jessica + brett | lake tahoe wedding

Remember when my college roommate called me up and asked me to do her engagement and wedding day photos? Well she brought her A game with planning her wedding, and it just happened to turn into her own wedding planning business (go Jess!) Lake Tahoe provided a dreamy backdrop for this bohemian wedding where Jess made the napkins and table cloths out of shibori fabric herself, and ended the night with flower crowns for every bridesmaid and dancing into the night. This wedding will be one I remember for a lifetime, you just have to scroll down to see the tables and decor for yourself. Congrats Jessica + Brett!

Happy New Year! I always love the feeling of a fresh start that the new year brings us. A chance to wipe the slate clean and reset. For me, it's less about resolutions and more about goals. To set the year off in the right direction, here's a wintry blue + pale pink desktop calendar for you, cheers!

megan + nick | oregon vineyard engagement

When two of your old friends ask for engagement photos in the vineyards sipping wine at sunset, it's an absolute NO DOUBT for me! We couldn't stop laughing and running around catching the twinkling glimpses of the sun setting. What a fun summer session this was back in August. I can't wait for these two to tie the knot next year!
