KISS YOUR HONEY ! {Happy Valentines Day !}

    I don't know about you guys, but Valentines day makes me weak in the knees. Every shade & variation of pink takes over the world and seems to fill every retail store. It simply makes me giddy - JD knows it's one of my absolute fave holidays. Not just because of the pink explosion, but because the last 9 years I have had the honor of celebrating with someone who makes me want to do all the things that this lovely design via Wiley Valentine created. Today we are doing our usual - popping a bottle of our favorite Italian red, visiting the greatest Italian restaurant here in Springfield, Palermo's, and then coming home to open our cards and then it's Seinfeld and the Office with our yearly brownie indulgence. From my heart to yours: Happy Valentines Day! 

Be sure to head over to Wiley Valentine and check out all their lovely stationary. They are incredible!!

My September 2015 couple recently had their engagement photos with the incredibly talented Matt DeBackere, and I could not resist posting a peek as today's instalove.

These two #worshampartyof2 just make my heart melt. The photos from their amazing engagement session are in and I just could not hold myself back from sharing a little sneak peek into their day with the talented Matt DeBackere. The couple is celebrating their love of sports and their sports driven careers in an outside ceremony full of lush floras, deep purples and soft romantic blue next September. While you feast your eyes on their love, and Matt's rad photo skills, I will be over here sketching up centerpieces that will have footballs and lush florals literally pouring from them. This picture - one of my favorites of all time.

Hi there sweet friends! Whew! It's been a while since I blogged an Instalove huh? Well! Boy do I have a good one for you today!! Pink, Glitter and Gold Oh my!I  .

Today I'm sharing my new love obsession - my Kikki.K lilac & gold Diary/Time Planner

I know what you're thinking "Cass, you're a Day Designer gal! What happened?" No worries my Day Designer friends - my lovely gold DD still holds my personal & business Calendar.  I just needed more.. a place to truly hold my client's & friendors addresses for surprise mailings, a place for blog notes, to track stats, hashtags, posts & expenses by month and just some other oddball items that I like to keep in one spot. My lovely lilac has become my on-the-go business tool. Toting it from the Court during Court days & home has been so beneficial & helpful in maintaining my blog and seeing the week laid out ahead of me.


This little sidekick of mine is so lovely - in every detail. I do love it so & carry it with me nearly everywhere I go. Head on over to the Kikki.K site and show them some love - today they are having a big sale on some super pretty items that I just adore.

Happy Friday!

xoxo, Cass
