Do you know what tonight is? It’s the celebration of the day I met my husband. Twenty-one years ago. I have been with him longer than I have not. We went bowling, then across the street for ice cream, then decided to watch a movie, then went to look at Christmas lights, and finally for dinner at midnight. It was a blind date, I planned to ditch him after 30 minutes. But, he was the nicest guy I had ever met. So, here I am 21 years later, I still haven’t ditched him.😂 #marriagematerial We always go out to look at Christmas lights this time of year and remember how it all started. . .💙💙💙

If you’ve come to visit me from out of town, chances are we’ve ended up at Union Station. The pictures just don’t do it justice.

Can’t wait to share the photos from my church’s Christmas party tomorrow on the blog! •• We transformed a school cafeteria into a speakeasy for the night & of course, dressed to impress with some fur 🐾💃🏻 [and my winter ball dress from 2016 made a comeback 😂]

My New York living, fashionista sister @camillefishel. She works for @mlb, has traveled to more places than I can count and is still the weirdest person I know (in a good way). We’re polar opposites, yet the exact same weirdness. Guess we owe that to a chaotic, yet loving childhood ❤️

How do you guys get your homes host-worthy for the holidays?!⠀⠀My to-do list looks something like this:⠀⠀1. “Mean clean” the house hours before guests arrive. 2. Shove anything and everything deemed unworthy in drawers and closets UPstairs, so that said guests won’t unexpectedly open one and wonder if I’m a hoarder. 3. Light holiday candles, turn on Christmas music, stock the pantry and attempt to get myself in the holiday spirit. 4. Pick up or make up some yummy holiday snacks and treats.5. Take a shower (because of the mean cleaning).6. Apologize to husband and kids for being mean while cleaning. 🙈😘.....#happyholidays #projectgreyhouse #holidayspirit #holidayhosting #interiors #designideas #flashesofdelight #pursuepretty #designisinthedetails #interiordesign #postitfortheaesthetic #decorcrushing #smploves #liveauthentic #pursuewhatislovely #seekthesimplicity #lovelysquares #interiorinspo #modernliving #instadaily #housebeautiful #designinspo #mydomaine #theeverygirl #fromwhereistand #thedesignpod #lindseyfrankdesign #our_everyday_moments #momentsofmine #momlife

I’ve been working on a family room design for a lovely client and when we talked about artwork, her one request was “no birds.” 😂 Does she not know me at all!? Or does she know me very well!? 😂 Do any of you have absolute “NO’s” when it comes to artwork? 📷@angelanewtonroyphotography

there was this study done—a lonesome monkey in a cage exposed to intense psychological strain would be twice as stressed as when accompanied by another monkey in the same exact scenario. in other words, 'twas not the situtation but the being alone (or not) in it. but i’m me, & i’m taken by foxes not monkeys. à la le petit prince:“What does tamed mean?”“It's something that’s been too often neglected. It means, ‘to create ties.’ . . . For me, you’re only a boy just like a hundred thousand other boys. And I have no need of you. And you have no need of me, either. For you I’m only a fox like a hundred thousand other foxes. But if you tame me, we’ll need each other. You’ll be the only boy in the world for me.

I started wrapping gifts in newspaper years ago, because we had so much of it piling up and, why not? 🎁⠀⠀Wrapping paper is fun and festive at first, but it just gets torn apart and tossed (or hopefully recycled or saved for fire-starter). 🔥⠀⠀So newspaper it is! Now it's become a game to find the most entertaining and engaging images or words for the person receiving the gift. I bet you can guess who likes puppies and water and airplanes... yes, EVERYONE!, and Ayla. 🐶💦✈️.⠀⠀If you really want to get crafty, try centering the picture. It's not easy, but oh-so-so satisfying. (Masking tape is perfectly acceptable for sealing the paper.)⠀⠀Tie the gift with kitchen twine or paper ribbon, which is friendlier on the landfill (and can also be recycled), and top it with greenery -like eucalyptus - and dried flowers. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀#wrappingpaper #wrappingpresents #wrappinggifts #pursuepretty #darlingdaily #searchwandercollect #seekthesimplicity #gatheredstyle #giftguide #foundforaged #creativityfound #mycommontable #newspaper #gifttopper #holidaytime #giftgivingseason #giftgiving #greengifts

Working hard to get the last of your orders out this week for the holiday! And I have to tell you guys, I made the donation to @detroitdogrescue today and my corporate job is going to match it. That means with our donations to ACLU, Hurricane Harvey relief, and the Detroit Dog Rescue, you have helped me raise nearly $500 in the last few months! This has meant so much to me and is definitely something I want to do more of in 2018. It feels really good to come together like this, thank you so much for your support. Love you guys ❤️

All wrapped and ready to go! Atticus Finch was a pretty special portrait to do. A girl purchased the portrait for her friend after her friends dog of 12 years passed away. Even though Atticus was a boy she requested the flower crown because of his whimsical personality. I hope this brings a smile to her friend’s face ❤️
