pinspiration: summer's around the corner

With Wednesday being the last day of school for students, Friday being the last for teachers, and Memorial Day, the unofficial beginning of summer, kicking off next week, I'm channeling some serious summer vibes this week on my Pinterest boards. Also this week - the made-for-television remake of Dirty Dancing. Are you planning to watch? The original, filmed in Virginia at Mountain Lake, is one of my all-time favorite movies and I don't think it can ever be topped! Whatever your plans for this week, make it a bright and colorful one.






Here's what I'm listening to this week while packing up my classroom and thinking ahead to summer fun, rest, and relaxation:

pinspiration: spicing it up...

This time of year is always busy and exciting. This weekend, for example, I'll be chaperoning a dance, seeing my favorite band in concert, and attending a wedding all in one 48-hour period! As much as I love the wild ride, I can't help but dream of an escape... Morocco, perhaps? The California coast? Just kidding... I'll happily take just a few hours of uninterrupted time with some white wine and friends on our patio.

  • "Silver Lining" is the result of Oklahoma-born Americana singer-songwriter Parker Millsap wondering if he could write a pop song. Paired with a cute music video that features Millsap in a jumble of leading-man stereotypes, I'd say he did just fine.

pinspiration: Easter in the garden

What are your plans for this weekend? I'm looking forward to Easter Sunday and getting inspired by floral maxi dresses and full-on garden party vibes. Hopefully it will be warm enough to fire up the grill after church and invite some friends over for brunch on the patio!



If there's one day of the year that a flower crown is acceptable in public outside of Coachella, let it be Easter Sunday.



Love this vintage-inspired garden sign from Ella Claire.



How pretty are these botanical painted eggs from The House that Lars built?

There's lots more Easter inspiration over on my Pinterest boards, and I'm working on a Spotify playlist to celebrate:
