Last summer, I moved to Downtown Portland and it was way hot. Although cute and charming, there were no bodies of water, pools or air conditioning systems in sight. A couple weeks ago, I moved from the city to the suburbs (what what!) and I could not be happier. It’s so convenient (and cheap!). And there is a pool. :) This summer, I want to plan cocktail parties, throw BBQs, and do all of the cliche things that people do from June to August. Lately, my pins have been reflecting that desire.

Have you guys listened to Serial yet? I finally got around to it during a recent drive from CA to OR.

Ahh, spring is in the air! I just rediscovered a box of pretty felt I used to make bows with. Maybe I’ll use all the scraps to make beautiful flowers like these.
Also, about a month ago I read an incredible post on Design Sponge about negativity online. When I see negativity in the blog world, I get so bummed out.

Click here to read the post! It’s worth it. :)
Have a beautiful weekend! I’ll be back next week with some design project sneak peeks.
