{ Monday Marvel }

Okay, ladies and gentleman. I have been waiting a while for this one...

This week's { Monday Marvel } features the one and only { misa*me photography }. 

For those of you who don't know, my sister is a grand photographer. She began her company misa*me photography not too long ago and has become quite the popular artist in her area. 

She recently visited my new home in Wilmington, NC and knew we had to take advantage of the fantastic scenery. We went to the south end of beautiful Wrightsville Beach and took pictures galore.


You can find her blog { here } along with more images from our photoshoot. 

That's it for today!

{ Gimme! Gimme! }

Sincere apologies for the lack of love this week. I have been in a whirlwind of work the past two days, but now I am back in action!

For my lack of a { Monday Marvel } I will try to make up for it with a few pretty things this week!

Starting with this..

Gimme gimme!

When I first discovered { Love Ala } I knew it was a match made in heaven. Most of you know I have blog links galore and the list keeps growing and growing. Photographer Ala, takes modern, beautiful photographs and bonus, she started as a Graphic Designer. Who knew...

I did my usual blog check up this morning, and found a beautiful post with a fabulous wedding. Not only is this bride adorable, but her flowers are mesmerizing! I want! I want! Courtesy of { Fleuretica }, these colors and gorgeous flowers are the epitome of perfect. Consider this bookmarked, saved, put into my save-for-the-future file. Be sure to check out Fleuretica's { Blog } as well for updates on anything and everything pretty. 

Must get back to work, but there will be more updates this week. Promise!

{ Cake Topper }

I know, I know...Not too long ago I featured an adorable cake topper (that also happened to be birds..) but I couldn't help but pass up this opportunity! Etsy is one of my favorite sites to explore, and I came across these adorable cake toppers by { Red Light Studio }.

Now, for those of you who don't know, ( but I'm sure you have figured it out by now ) I currently date a Marine. Hoorah! But don't worry, marriage certainly isn't in the near future, but a girl can dream right? I couldn't help but share the cuteness with you. This artist also features tons of other hand sculpted ideas. Any style to match your every need.

Stay tuned! Tomorrow I will be giving a little sneak peek of something I have been working on...

{ misa*me photography }

Good morning everyone!

I'm sure many of you are still sleeping at this hour, but I was too excited to wait until the afternoon hours! This Friday, I have some goodies for you!

I have mentioned before my sister, Marisa, is a wonderful photographer. Her company { misa*me photograph } has become a well known business in the Annapolis, MD area. A while back I was the lucky one chosen to create a logo and give her business the extra design boost it needed to get started! Now, I have been asked to design business cards! I have created three wonderful options for my sister. Now, its up to the fans to decide!

You may view the cards here on my blog or on Facebook, and if you want to comment that would be wonderful as well. However, on her Facebook page, she is taking votes! Please visit { misa*me on Facebook }and vote for your favorite business card!

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to vote for your favorite! Have a fabulous weekend.

{ Hello Greece }

For about two seconds, I wished I were Greek.

I found this gorgeous wedding shoot courtesy of { Wedding Gawker } and immediately wanted to hop on a plane to Oia, Santorini, Greece. Shot by photographer, Susan Stripling, this wedding location couldn't be more perfect, and not to mention extremely romantic.

This stunning shot is what drew me in...
