Today is our 5th and final guest post from none other than the genius behind Paloma’s Nest, Caroline Vasquez.  Caroline and I “met” a few years back on twitter and soon met for real to vision this Johnny Cash shoot for Southern Weddings Magazine.  Caroline is a great source of inspiration as she is the epitome of artist in all she says and does.  Her passion for crafting true heirlooms for weddings and beyond is the foundation for her iconic brand.  I am overjoyed to welcome Caroline today and have her share a touch of her awesomeness with you!! First, […]

A small shop Frontier Plunder nestled at the entrance to Zion National Park is near and dear.  This place is bursting at the seams with authentic finds ranging from chili ristras to hand carved leather gun holsters.  At every turn and each visit something new comes into view and the shop’s owner Harriert has a new story to share.

Today I am thrilled to introduce a very special gal.  Heidi from Spitfiregirl Design is the genius behind our lovely website.  This lady has a killer combination of skills that range from creating intuitive branding and business identity to a decidedly artful approach to web design.  Her keen eye and clean style are just the reasons I asked her to guest blog today.  Enjoy! Kristy, thank you so much for inviting me to guest post today. Aside from being a fun diversion from work, it’s also a sweet walk down memory lane…today happens to be my 2 year wedding anniversary!

Today’s guest blogger is a kindred artist that I couldn’t be more thrilled to introduce.   Amy Osaba is all about the ruffly, romance of the bloom.  Being a lover of all things floral, I was drawn to her site instantly.  I could spend hours  sifting through the artfully crafted bouquets, styled shoots and decor creations she pours her passion into. Welcome Amy!! Heidi Geldhauser of Our Labor of Love First I would like to thank Kristy for inviting me to guest blog today. What an honor.  I have admired her work for the last couple of years and am in […]

There is a certain quiet that only comes from being outside.  Fresh air, clean breezes and the sounds of nature are both basic and complex in the most comforting sort of way.  This week while hiking up the Emerald Pools trail in Zion National Park I did not feel that familiar calm I normally do.  It was a sunny, brisk day and everyone in the park seemed to be on this trail.  It was difficult to hear my own thoughts let alone any quiet on this particular hike. I decided to head back down the trail in hopes of finding […]
