Birthstone Inspiration: May

Pin It Now!





For as long as I can remember, I've loved having a stone assigned to my birth month. Mine is aquamarine, and I'm currently in a loving-all-things-turquoise-and-aqua phase. 

May is right around the corner, and 90° temps are in the forecast in my desert land. Both my mom and brother have May birthdays. In fact they were born on the same day! Neat, huh?

When I see emerald, May's beautiful birthstone, I think of England and forests and dragons and all things Middle Earth. It's a color I associate with my love of all things fantasy! I also love to wear this shade of green since I think it goes so well with my skin tone, hair, and eyes.

I hope you enjoy these May gift ideas. It's so fun to give and receive gifts in a color theme! 


Happy Shopping!

You Are My Sunshine Hand-painted Sign

Pin It Now!




My middle son turned 16 this past January and is starting his first "real" job TODAY. I'm telling you, the time FLIES!! 

It seems like yesterday that I was singing the "You Are My Sunshine" chorus to him 
every. single. day. But instead of "dear" I'd sing his name - Lincoln. 

It was our special song when he was little. :) 

With his strawberry blond hair and bright blue eyes, it just fit.  (Okay, I'm tearing up a bit here.) Goodness, sometimes I miss those sweet days.

And I just looked up the original lyrics. So, I truly had no idea that the song was about some woman who dumped her man. Go figure.



ANYWAY, seeing this lovely, hand-painted sign sparked those memories and lit up my mama's heart. If I could go back in time, I'd be buying this sign and putting it in my baby boy's nursery right now! 

If you are a mama or know of a mama who sings this sweet song to her baby, hop on over to The Makers, a company who sells quality goods hand made by local artisans, to purchase this heartwarming sign. :)

Birthstone Inspiration: April

Pin It Now!



For as long as I can remember, I've loved having a stone assigned to my birth month. Mine is aquamarine, and I'm currently in a loving-all-things-turquoise-and-aqua phase. 

April is here and spring has totally sprung in my neck of the woods. (Desert, really.) Diamonds are SO beautiful but quite expensive. So, most of these gift ideas are not for real diamonds. The ring is the only exception, and it's on sale at the time of this post! I hope you enjoy these April gift ideas. It's so fun to give and receive gifts in a color theme! 

*Although I haven't bought these specific items, which are affiliate links, I LOVE shopping at Etsy!. :) (Other links include ShopStyleCollective.)
