Hello my friends,

Well, the Holidays are officially in full swing! Thanksgiving weekend came and passed, and with that brought December into full swing (and possibly a few pounds from all that darn candied yams I had last weekend!).

Ahh, December. My favorite month of the whole year. Being a December baby, I always had so much to celebrate in this month in such a short span of time. You know that meme that’s floating around.. “I wish that someone would remember my December birthday?” Well yeah, but it’s hardly a price paid to be born in a month filled with hot cocoa and candy canes! Now I am starting to feel like Elf…

Anyways, this weekend I had the chance to finally go to the Succulent Cafe, a place that I have seen all over Instagram. Succulents and coffee are pretty much two of my favorite things…so I just knew that the combo had to be pretty magical.

Boy, did I walk into a magical kingdom of succulents! There were so, so many of them to walk around and see. There was a succulent Christmas tree and succulent ornaments, for crying out loud! Could nature get any more festive? I think not!

To adventuring to where you live and finding the cutest places ever!

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! 🙂

  

I hope your weekends were just as sweet! 

Xoxo,

Lena
