This is Where the Wild Things Are



I'm probably the most impatient person you'll ever meet, but once in a while i can appreciate that some things are worth the wait.  Remember this inspiration board I shared back in October?  Well, I can finally share the holy-moley-knock-your-socks-off-spread featured in this month's edition of Utterly Engaged.  This desert beauty was designed by myself and the ever-amazing Paige.  Inspired by all things wild and lovely we created our ideal bachelorette party: a weekend in the Joshua Tree desert surrounded by vast mountains, bushels of feathers, shots of whiskey and our very best girlfriends.  It just doesn't get any better than this.

this project was the ultimate labor of love.  I feel so fortunate to have worked with such talented, kick ass people.  Can't wait to do it again! big love and hugs to you all!  xoxo

Honestly? I can't get enough of this. Now, not only do I want to put a teepee in our back yard, is it possible to install a desert landscape in Pennsylvania? Seriously though, FANTASTIC!

Oooo, I love this so much. I'm just sad my bachelorette party wasn't this awesome! Headdresses + Desert + Campfire + Best Friends + Whiskey...doesn't get any more fun than that!

Im so excited to finally see this! I was excited about it when I saw the inspiration board but sort of forgot about it cause it'd been a while but you are so right... Completely worth the wait. You are truly a creative genius ( Paige too!). I'm officially in love ♥.
