I’m so excited to partner with Framebridge for Mother’s Day! They’ve been my go to for framing for the last 2 years! They’re website is really easy and fun to use (not to mention gorgeous!). And their custom framing is beautiful and high quality! With Mother’s Day less than a month away Framebridge is the perfect destination for special, one of a kind gifts.



Some of my most favorite art pieces in our home were made by my kids. These pieces deserve to be framed! And it makes Lilly and Fletcher so happy to see their art hung on the wall. Framed kids art makes for the best Mother’s Day gift, don’t you think?



There are two easy ways you can frame – 1) Upload a photo from your computer, phone, or instagram feed for Framebridge to custom frame or 2) Mail in your original art and objects for Framebridge to custom frame. They provide free, prepaid packaging!



Framebridge has a lot of handmade frame options to choose from. Just upload an image of the piece you want framed and you can see it in all of the frame options!



I actually find this tool kind of addicting. I love plugging in different pictures and seeing how they look in different frames. I love how this abstract by Fletcher turned out in the Marin Frame.



We spruced up our library area with some new pieces, too.



Lilly made this self portrait with her pastels and I framed it in the Stella frame using a personalized mat saying “Lilly (age 8)”. Loving this new personalizing feature they’re offering.



And this family photo was printed from my instagram feed! It’s actually of a Mother’s Day past and is so special to me. It’s in the Henry frame.



Live life. Frame more. – Framebridge’s motto, and I like it. A few dates to note – Mother’s Day mail in orders deadline is April 22, the digital upload deadline is May 6th! You can start framing right here!

Happy Monday. Sharing some pictures from my life lately today! Starting with Easter. We celebrated here in Charleston with Josh’s side of the family and had a beautiful day.



I’m wearing this dress.



I just finished Emily Giffin’s new book All We Ever Wanted. It was SO good, you guys.



Pretty flowers from Out of Hand with Lake star pjs :)



Girl brunch with my friends Haskell and Molly at Husk. I’m wearing this pink embroidered dress (love it, comes in 6 other colors).



These white heels were one of my best recent purchases. They go with everything and the heel is the perfect height! Also pictured, these jeans, this rockstud bag, and this stripe rug.



At the INTRO art show with Anna and Gray.



Charleston is in BLOOM y’all. It’s the prettiest time of year.



If you’re looking for a great happy hour spot – Goat Sheep Cow (North location) is amazing….



At a luncheon at the Gibbes with my friends Molly and Olivia. I’m wearing this dress and this circle bag.



Had a pickle ball tournament with some friends on the Isle of Palms. Have you guys ever played? It’s so much fun! Cute blue sneakers and red sneakers.



The prettiest dinner set up at my friend Jackie’s house. Similar palm place mats here.



We’ve had some warm and sunny days here in Charleston :)



A gorgeous dinner in honor of Blakely Little’s new collection of paintings. Isn’t this space dreamy?



Lilly has been taking art lessons with Chambers Austelle and it is adorable!!



Speaking of Chambers, I commissioned a new painting from her… Isn’t she gorgeous?



Pretty white belted swimsuit with floral hoops and round wicker bag.



Sweet Fletch. This view never gets old to me.



More Charleston blooms.



Lunch at Basic Kitchen with my friends Caroline, Jackie, and Kate.

Charleston’s restaurant scene is literally bursting with amazing options. There seems to be a new and highly anticipated restaurant opening every week. While Tuckernuck was here shooting their current Lifestyle Guide we stopped by Basic Kitchen (one of my new favorites) for a drink and some snacks. They serve a local and healthy menu and I love going there for breakfast or lunch.  Not to mention it’s absolutely beautiful inside.



My favorite items on Basic Kitchen’s menu are the cauliflower “wings” and the rainbow bowl. SO good!



I’m Wearing:

black off shoulder dress, woven clutch,

nude scalloped heels, gold trellis earrings


Gray’s Wearing:

red mod top, white skinny jeans,

nude scalloped heels, watermelon clutch, raffia earrings



With so many good restaurant options here in Charleston it’s hard to go wrong, but we have some places that stand out to me as the best. So in no particular order here are my current top 10 spots.




Xiao Bao Biscuit – My #1 spot in town. I’m addicted to the Mapo Dou Fu!

Le Farfalle – I’ve never had a pasta there that I haven’t loved.

Basic Kitchen – Healthy, fresh, and gorgeous space!

Halls – Best steak house in town. The people watching in the bar is entertaining, too.

Indaco – You can’t go wrong here. I especially love the burrata and the bolognese pizza.

The Ordinary – Grab a seat at the bar & order the crab toast (& a lobster roll if you’re there on a Tuesday).

167 Raw – I might be a creature of habit but I suggest the lobster roll!

Little Jacks Tavern – Best burger in town, imo.

Obstinate Daughter – On Sullivan’s Island. Amazing food in a beautiful setting.

Goat Sheep Cow North – Great spot to cozy up with a cheese board, fondue, and wine.


Special Shout Outs:

Workshop – Upscale food court and family friendly, too

Restaurant Tu – There’s nothing like it in Charleston, & bonus it’s by the co-owners of XBB

Betty’s – Diner style, family friendly in Mt Pleasant

The Daily at The Gibbes – Perfect excuse to see what’s new at Charleston’s best museum

Rarebit – Great late night food.

Happy International Women’s Day! As mother, wife, and friend it means so much to me to see women celebrated and lifted. I know I just shared these photos last week in Lilly’s Bedroom Reveal post but I want to share these three again today to highlight one of the best books Lilly and I have ever read (and we’ve read a lot!).



Bedtime Stories for Rebel Girls is comprised of 100 stories about the lives of 100 extraordinary women from the past and present. All beautifully illustrated by 60 amazingly talented female artists from around the world. This book is so good that I think every girl should own it. We are getting the sequel  edition, Bedtime Stories for Rebel Girls 2, for Lilly for Easter.



“Adventure is worthwhile in itself” – Amelia Earhart. Check out the Rebel Girls books right here :)
