A few things I’ve loving lately…

Calligraphy Art Print - Everything Beautiful - 8 x 10


Not only is this calligraphied print beautiful (and the styling spot on), but the sentiment is so sweet and speaks to me so well! Is it so much to ask to simply fill the world with more beauty and joy?!



Lots of exciting changes and updates have been happening at Avelist (read more about why I love this website here)! You can now make community lists, where anyone can contribute. My newest and most favorite community list is the most inspiring wedding websites & blogs. Check it out… and contribute!

Hilarious quiz on how addicted to your smartphone you are – you should probably take the quiz to see!

pretty bathroom

How pretty is this sweet bathroom? I love the dinner plate pink dahlia, the awesome statement sink, and the fabulous blue & white tiled wall? I’m swooning over so many elements of this bathroom!

Fruit and Herb Pairing Primer

This is the perfect guide to fruit & herb pairings. I’m not always the most experimental with mixing new herb + fruit combinations, and it’s good to have so many time-tested pairings and suggestions all in one place! I definitely want to incorporate as many fresh herbs with fresh fruits during this season, and I can’t wait to whip up something new soon.

Custom Calligraphy for Wedding Invitations or EnvelopesThough I’ve worked on wedding calligraphy already, I’m now officially offering custom ink wedding envelope calligraphy in my Steph Seeking Joy Etsy shop! I’m thrilled to have a more streamlined, efficient, accessible way to take custom calligraphy orders. I have really loved doing envelope calligraphy, and I can’t wait to expand this aspect of my creative work!

The Anatomy of Sangria

I love how versatile and adaptable (and, of course, delicious) sangria is! It’s my go-to drink in the summer… you just can’t go wrong!

How fun is this confetti push-up pop for a wedding exit?! It’s such a joyful addition, which is what every wedding should be filled with! How easy would it be to customize the label with your wedding logo, monogram, or favorite line – and then fill the push up pop with confetti in your wedding colors?

gold flatwareThis gold flatware from West Elm is officially on my ‘want’ list – it’s classic, elegant, and perfect for entertaining or everyday use. I have a definite love of gold, and I think this would pair so nicely with any tablescape.

Top 10: Best Gardens Around the WorldCheck out this short but sweet article from none other than the Tory Burch blog on the Top 10 Gardens in the World. All ten are so unique from one another, and the gardens span the globe from Marrakech to California to Paris. I love gardens, flowers, and nature, and it’s critically important to, truly, stop and smell the roses.
