{ Inspiration :: Lilacs }

It doesn't take much to make me happy. Today it was something so simple as an email and a picture. My dear friend Catie and I went to Interior Design school together in Salt Lake City. It's been years but we've kept in contact through graduation, our missions, and life's little ups and downs. This morning I sat down at my desk to find this sweet email from her in my inbox:

"You have inspired me to do something to brighten up my office. This morning as I sat on the front porch with my mom enjoying the lovely spring morning I had a brilliant idea to take a vase of our fragrant blooming lilacs to work today. I shall include a picture of my masterpiece. Love you! -Catie"

Thank you Catie, for brightening my day! (It's a gloomy So Cal morning). Your lilacs are absolutely gorgeous. Every time I smell those lovely blooms I'm reminded of the sweet smell of spring on my mission in Canada. Those things were everywhere! Kind of wish I had a bundle smiling back at me right now. Enjoy your lovely flowers! I adore them, and you!

I just found your blog through Shea's and I love it! You create the most gorgeous arrangements! Anyway totally random-where did you get your navy stripped swimming suit and fedora that you wore on your Colorado River trip? Also your rommper and cardi-basically your entire outfit? Ha ha also your navy stripped top you're wearing in your Arizona post? I hope I'm not creepy...
