This month’s moodboard really speaks to the state of affairs around my home – and city. Rain. Sun. Rain. Sun. Spring is definitely here in Seattle. But it also speaks to the burst of green growth, the change in season, and a little thing we call romance…

I think our inner florist is always celebrating this time of year with the plethora of florals and greens suddenly available in the market. The rest of us are just welcoming the sunshine with open arms! Me, I’m doing both. Yesterday I got to do some fun floral arranging, and I think we’ll be bringing you even more of that to the blog in the coming months. But there’s another reason I’m celebrating…

If you haven’t heard the news… my boyfriend is now my fiancé! And as a result I’m in the mood for romantic styles and aesthetics in the most classic of forms…

Like place settings where the napkins are wrapped in luxurious velvet ribbons, climbing vines and sweet little posies, and – of course – lazy weekends spent in bed reading. And yes, I’m collecting wedding inspiration like crazy, even though we likely won’t be married until next spring. I’m angling for a vineyard somewhere… although we have a few barn locations in mind too… you’ll just have to wait and see! As soon as we set the venue, I’m sure I’ll be blogging about our nuptials much more. Until then, I’m enjoying the spring sunshine and the romance in the air…
