currently | a new look for 'simply love'

you may have noticed that 'simply love' has a brand new look. it is still a work in process and there are some features that i would love to change + add soon; however, i am pretty happy with the new look. it had been a long time (over two years) since her last 'face lift' and it was very bittersweet
(mainly because i designed the old one all on my own) but i felt like it was time. i am all about change and feel like it's so important throughout life. my vision for this little space was one that is more clean and simple yet still feminine and whimsical. i have been working with a very personable and talented couple in munich, germany. i truly adore them and their work. check out their gorgeous blog here and let me know if you want more information about their work. 

 ...also, i would love your feedback...


+ parks and i attended a 'mommy and me' yoga class today and it was super fun. it was not the peaceful type of class like i used to enjoy regularly... but it was awesome. parks didn't get past conquering much more than 'happy baby' pose but he was giggling and smiling and loving life. my friend, amy, whom i just love walked in unexpectedly with her baby cece. it was the perfect surprise. we went to bellies & babies for all charlotte friends. i would recommend it to anyone. a great experience and already looking forward to our next class. 
+ just over here dreaming about fall and lighting astleigh of hill collection's lovely twine + cotton candles
+ we are traveling to lake lure, north carolina this weekend (where dirty dancing was filmed) to visit family friends and my parents. we went last year over labor day and it's just so beautiful. it should be fun taking in the scenery, eating delicious food, shopping and playing games. plus, football will be here and i can enjoy pumpkin beer this year! yay!! are you traveling anywhere this weekend?
+ during my most recent trader joe's trip i discovered a lot of new spicy goodness that i can't wait to share soon. so many exciting new options there; my favorite place to grocery shop. 
+ i have a lot (a lot) of exciting news coming up (no, parks is not going to be a big brother) but just a lot of new adventures that i am anticipating and am excited for... please keep us in your prayers and i will be sharing soon. thank you so much, sweet friends.

hope your week is going well
