All these florals above are your typical Spring flowers (excluding tulips, which aren't quite up-and -adam in my area yet). Most of these are easily found foraging or right in your own back yard
Here are some simple spring arrangements anyone can make, even if you don't have the design eye.
This medium size arrangement is made up of daffodils and hyacinth. All I did here was measure my daffodils so that they sat nicely right on top of the vase rim How?:Move your vase to the edge of your counter, take your daffodils, or other florals, and align them to where you want them to fall on the vase then cut the excess stems to be flush with the bottom of the vase).
Then I did the same thing with the Hyacinth, but made sure that they were taller than the daffodils so that they could poked their little heads out the top.
This small arrangement is made up of mostly Muscari (also known as grape hyacinth) and a few hyacinth. I put them in a little hob knob vase and cut them at slightly varying heights to give a little more dimension.
And lastly, this large arrangement. All this one has are long Forsythia branches cut in varying heights and put in a cute pitcher I got from Jo-Ann's. The only thing you need to know about this one is that you want to make sure you remove any flowers/leaves that may fall below the water line.
Have fun this Spring making flower arrangements for your home and maybe even a friend. Also if you don't have any of these florals in your backyard, head to your local nursery and get some bulbs! Plant them this fall and next spring you will have a garden!
(ps: tulips, muscari, hyacinth and daffodils all multiply each year!!!)
This past week I spent a wonderful week in Orange Beach, AL. It was a week full of relaxation and sunshine, and of course it wouldn't be trip for The Sodus Blossom if there weren't flowers involved!
I meet up with a good friend and photographer there and we did a little shoot together, check her out on INSTAGRAM and to see more from the shoot check out Emma's website HERE!

At the end of January, My husband Dale and I took a much need adventure together to Colorado. While there we visited Denver, Steamboat Springs and Fort Collins. It was my first trip to Colorado and truly my first time seeing real majestic mountains!
Here are some snap shots from my amazing Anniversary trip to Colorado! Hope you enjoy.
ps: I looked for flowers everywhere, even local shops and just couldn't make it work. But it is still worth blogging about!
O'Dell Brewing in Fort Collins!
Horsetooth Reservoir in Fort Collins was such an amazing site! I would recommend going there if you are ever in the area!
The drive to Steamboat Spring through Wyoming! Another beautiful state!
A little Pine Marten Dale got on video while skiing! Isn't he so cute!
Our amazing "little" honeymoon suite in an awesome condo at the base of the mountain!
This is where I was after skiing each day. When you have a Jacuzzi tub in your room, you take advantage of it!
Skiing with great friends in Steamboat!
Home Sweet Home!
Another one of my many hobbies is keeping a Wildlife Journal. I keep track of all the animals I see on trips or even right in my backyard. Here is some of the more impressive animals that we saw! (Some while skiing!)
I would love to hear about your most recent trip! Leave me comment!
I haven't done a Friday Favorites in a while, honestly I haven't brought anything in a while (with Christmas and all). I really love doing these posts because I tend to get a lot of feedback on them. I was love hearing from my readers!
NO. 1 - Graphic tee's are one of my weakness. I love finding shirts that fit my personality. My recent love of Prosecco demanded I get this shirt!
NO. 2 - Clinique 3 step system. I LOVE Clinique and have been using their makeup and other skin care products for quite sometime. Recently I purchased this 3 step cleansing system and I have seen such a huge difference in my skin. I always had kind of a rough skin texture and redness in some areas and that has disappeared. I have smoother skin with a more even skin tone. It's wonderful! Clinique has so many other kinds of 3-steps systems dependent on your skin type/problem. Also if you order soon, you will get 15% off your first order!
NO. 3 - This Vitagoods Scalp Massaging Shampoo Brush is truly the best thing I have bought in a long time. It feels amazing on my head and really cleans the roots of my hair. Shower/bath time is me time and this little baby makes it even more enjoyable. I got mine at Target, but I have seen them all over.
NO. 4 - Cellularose® Brightening CC Lumi-Serum from By Terry is thee most luxurious thing I own and probably ever will own! Not only does it make my skin look AMAZING it is also a skin care product that has helped my skin rejuvenate so much over the past month. I only wear it for date night or other special occasions, but it's worth it!
NO. 5 - Oxblood Oversized Travel Satchel- I got this bag for our recent trip to CO and love it! It's the perfect size and works as a carry on for most airlines. Also check out Sole Society. It's an amazing website full of good quality goods!
*I was not paid by any of these brands, just love them!
