wedding season.

  Hello loves,

Sometime I blink and just like that it’s been a month. Fall is here, and with fall comes all the cozy feels…my favorite time of the year is quickly approaching. I can basically hear Christmas calling my name. 

Anyways, I am getting ahead of myself. All I know is that I absolutely love family weddings for two reasons: I love adding people to my extremely large family, and it’s always the best reunion time! Weddings in this family seem to be a yearly occurring event. 

 
Staying up until the crack of dawn, aka way too late and eating way too much food are just a few of the necessities of a perfect family reunion. 

This past weekend, I got to celebrate the marriage of one of my cousins. It was such a beautiful wedding with such beautiful Pinteresty-vintage decor. 

  
Mason jars were everywhere… And if you don’t already know, I LOVE mason jars. Actually love is an understatement. They are so versatile, practical, and cute! 

 
It was so fun being a part of their big day, and it was so special to me to see my dad up there being a part of the ceremony.

  
I knew this was going to be an outdoor wedding at a winery in Fresno, CA, which is known to be hothothot! Thankfully, the clouds kicked in and the weather was simply perfect.  

The dessert bar was my favorite part of the meal! There were beautiful glitter cupcakes… If I had to describe them I would say jam-filled butter-cream frosting goodness! My cousin made the most delicious sea salted brown butter cookies which I devoured! Let me tell you… And no I don’t want to talk about how many I had, that’s for me to know and you well uhh… to not know! πŸ™‚

  

I hope your weekends were just as sweet! 

Xoxo,

Lena

down town.

  
Hello my loves!

Well, there is just something special about downtown areas. You know what I mean…I love how much there is to do, compacted in such a small area of space. It’s fun going to downtown areas of different cities to see the sights  that they offer.

  
I had been wanting to go to downtown Fullerton in just about forever, because there is this store that my friend told me about and ever since then I have pretty much religiously followed them.Oh hello friend! Yes, that’s the name of the most cutest, loveliest, *insert-every-single-descriptive-word-of-adoration-known-to-man-kind here.* I wanted to move every item in this store into my home.. Like, pronto.  

I also got to satisfy my sweet-tooth and enjoy the most delicious tea cafe I have ever really been to! I’m not a huge tea person, but matcha is my thing. Where’s it at? Tranquil Tea Lounge is where it’s at. And the only reason why I’m telling you this is because I’d love to see you there next time, obviously.  But really, berry matcha smoothies?! The quality of their tea was impeccable. You know where else it’s at? Bolu Bakery Cafe. Such a large coffee/bakery shop which has the BEST decor also. 

  
These stacked wall plants were the best. If only this was around the corner from my house.. Well actually good thing it’s not, otherwise I’m afraid I would be here way too often. 

I’ll see you next time,

Xoxo,

Lena
