First & Willow

SWEAR I'm going to get to the point where I remember to do this more than once a month.... 

First & Willow is a lil' space on the interwebs that I've created to TRY and help contribute to my family by doing some of the things I love to do. Right now it's unorganized, messy, and just going at snails pace for the moment. 
I love creating beautiful things. Sometimes those things are random and not cohesive at all. I love being inspired by things and actually doing them myself and making things for others and myself and my family. From party planning and decor to handmade pieces for my home, I've been enjoying tinkering with different aspects of DIY.

Summer Wrap Up

Fall started in my mind on September 1st...but NOW that's it's past the OFFICIAL first day of fall...I can freak out without anyone rolling their eyes! Until I start talking about all of the most basic stuff I love about fall. (Including being basic and loving it.)

But before I bust out the sweaters and boots, here's a look at our summer! Some awesome times, some oh-my-gosh-it's-too-hot-and-this-baby-needs-to-vacate-times....

 Frontier Park in Prosper
 Dallas Arboretum Children's Garden

 Meeting our new nephew Graham!
 Tending to the fairy garden and eating peaches fresh off of the tree at Jess and SueSue's house

 Fourth of July Jubilee all day at Little Elm Park
 Meeting some interesting creatures at Grisham Farms
 Making Build-a-Bears with Grandpa
  Learning about all kinds of fish at SeaLife Aquarium
 Visiting Daddy at work
Backyard Fun!

And of course ending the summer on a high with our newest baby gir!

Bring on the cider and pumpkin everything.
Bring on the fuzzy socks and hay rides.
Bring on the fall candles and cooler nights.

Oh wait...it's still 97* outside...
