happy 2 reese ~ a popsicle and painting celebration

today i have the honor of sharing an adorable, thoughtful, and extremely creative birthday party for the cutest two year old, reese. in honor of her second birthday today, i wanted to share the special party with you all. i just love her mom - we grew up in neighboring small-towns in ohio and even though we have known one another for a long time (our cousins married one another- so small-town, i know.) and our parents are friends, it has not been until the past few years that we have connected through social media. i just love, love, LOVE her photos and posts and we often share ideas and websites- i wish we lived closer. thank you, sweet jenna for allowing me to share your lovely party… 
happy second birthday, reese!!

last saturday, july 19, i enjoyed a picnic in the park with fellow charlotte creatives. the event was lovely and was coordinated by kathryn godwin - a very talented visual artist, who used to design store windows for anthropologie and has designed several other incredible items! she works with a variety of materials and loves the challenge of creating a whimsical space.  

you can go check out her sites here: facebook and her blog {she's so talented and very sweet!} in addition, she is hosting several workshops coming up soon… be sure to check them out. kathryn, thank you so much for putting together this little picnic- it was a wonderful morning~ full of delicious treats, coffee, basil lemonade, and lots of fun chats with others…

i took of the event~ 

 looking forward to many more…
