Georgia On My Mind

Dress | BCBG, Hat | Gap, Purse | J.Crew, Necklace | J.Crew

We're off to Savannah, Georgia for a few days to celebrate our one year anniversary! For once in my life, I actually planned out what I'll wear ahead of time instead of stuffing way too many potential outfits in my suitcase. I'm really looking forward to some cooler Spring weather, exploring a historic city and finding many moments to just relax together and reflect on our first year of marriage, which has absolutely been the best blessing.

Simple Moments

Fresh blueberries for breakfast | Making my desk at work more homey
Early morning conversation and chai lattes | Birthday cake baking for Chris
New goods from Anthropologie | Dinner with the ladies
Lunch time views | Mid-day espresso

Life has been consistently busy as of late, which makes the weeks go by faster than I can believe. So I've been trying to take time to focus on some of the more simple moments in life. A new favorite is when a good friend and I meet for coffee and tea in the morning; we like to end these mornings with leisurely walks around the town where we work. Even though the time we have is short compared to the day ahead of us, we've been feeling rejuvenated by the calmness of watching the city wake and feeling as if we've already accomplished some quality time. It's times like these that make you realize it is ok to stop and slow down.

Mini Peach Cobblers

My father's sweet girlfriend, who just happens to be a true Georgia peach, taught me this quick, easy recipe for none-other-than mini peach cobblers one evening. This is a simple recipe her mother has made for years, and with only four ingredients and a handful of minutes to prep, it's needless to say these cobblers have certainly made their way into our kitchen many times.


1 can of crescent rolls
2 fresh peaches 
1/4 cup of white sugar
3 tbsp salted butter


Peel the peaches and cut into small pieces. Open the can of crescent rolls and carefully press one triangle of the pastry down on a cutting board or counter until spread out thinner; the point of the triangle should be pointing towards you. Include a few pieces of the peaches near the top of the pastry. Fold the two larger ends over the peaches, and then fold the top over to encase the peaches as you roll the entire pastry down to the bottom of the point. Repeat with the remaining pastries and arrange in a square baking dish. Place the sugar and butter in a stove top sauce pan or in a microwave safe dish. Heat until the butter has completely melted; the sugar should still be thick and not disolved. If using a microwave, try heating in small 15-20 second bursts and stir after. Using a pastry brush, coat each roll with the mixture. Bake at 375 degrees fahrenheit for 15 minutes or until lightly brown on the top. Set aside to cool for a few minutes as the centers will be very hot. Enjoy with a scoop of ice cream on the side.

Now that the weather has started to ease into the warmer temperatures us Floridans are use to, I can't wait to start enjoying all that spring has to offer. I've been subconsciously 'spring cleaning', bringing more greenery into our home and enjoying the outdoors, all while finding some more spring-infused inspirations for the days ahead. These are just a handful of my favorites.
