Maternity Photos

We were able to recover our maternity photos we thought were lost, so even though Joslynne has been out of my belly just about as long as she was inside, we still wanted to share! It is so fun to look through these and remember the anticipation we felt to meet our little one. She is all we imagined and so much more! 


During pregnancy, it is hard to find clothes that still feel fun, flattering, and comfortable. There just doesn't seem to be much of a selection in most stores for maternity. Granted, it is a short period of your life, but you have to wear something for 9 months! And, during this season of a huge change in your body, boring, oddly fitting clothes do not offer much encouragement. 

Pink Blush came to the rescue for me! Their clothes are so beautiful, very fashionable, and comfortable. They fit true to your normal size and just add space for your belly to grow! I had some special occasions to dress for during my pregnancy, including being a bridesmaid, and I found just what I needed. 

Pink Blush not only offers maternity and nursing friendly clothes, but Women's sizes too! Their dresses are the cutest! I have teamed up with Pink Blush to give away a $75 gift card to one of you. These clothes are just too lovely for you to miss! Visit our Instagram to enter now through Saturday, June 3, 2017.

Nursery Update: Vintage Dress

We are close to completing our baby's nursery! I can't wait to share the entire room, but in the meantime I have sneak peek to show you today. 

This little corner is one of my favorite parts of the room. Every aspect is so special. 

Shelf: Wes made this shelf for the baby, and added this decorative knob from Hobby Lobby

Hot Air Balloon Photo: This is a photo we took during our hot air balloon excursion while we were dating. You will see at the final reveal, but the nursery's main theme is hot air balloons, so we are excited to have pictures from our actual balloon ride to share with our little girl!

Teaset: This tiny teaset was mine as a child! I remember thinking it was just beautiful. I'm so glad I saved it for my daughter. :)

Pink Dress: This is the best part! My mom wore this dress as a toddler! It is so gorgeous, and I just can't believe the perfect condition it's in. I'm so happy we still have it and can pass it down. Material things are not priceless, but the stories they tell of people who play important roles in our lives are so valuable!

I painted our baby's name on the wooden hanger for the dress. I love the sentiment of personalized keepsakes! I made her a wood burned hanger as well, because a girl needs options right?! ;)

I loved this project so much, I added both painted and wood burned personalized children's hangers to our Etsy shop! These are perfect to display special outfits or family heirlooms like ours. They make a great keepsake gift! Visit the shop here

Stay tuned to see the rest of the nursery! Follow us on Instagram for more peeks as we make progress. 

I can't wait to tell our little Joslynne all about the special things in her life from people who love her. She has so many wonderful family members and friends ready to make memories with her! Do you have any family heirlooms passed down to you? I love the stories and memories behind old treasures.

Life Lately

After a much needed unintentional break, I'm back to this little space on the internet. The end of 2015 was full of holiday busyness and other wonderful new changes for Wes and I. I am excited to blog again more regularly, and I thought I would start with what we've been up to the last couple months. 

First of all, you guys are amazing! I was blown away by the all the Christmas orders I had the opportunity to do and the support our little business received. I am so thankful for everyone of our clients and love playing a small part in adding personal keepsakes to homes!

We were so excited to have this pretty little girl join our family in December! Maya, our sweet chocolate lab has been so fun to have in our lives. She affectionate, curious, and quite the expert at fetch already!

The week before Christmas, we moved into our first home! Its awesome to have a place of our own, we love it. We are especially enjoying having a backyard!

It was great to have the entire Murdock family together for Christmas!

After Christmas, I got to visit my family in North Carolina for 2 weeks. It was so nice to just spend time together, and fun to see my sister, one of my aunts, my grandmother too!  It was great to see friends I hadn't seen for a while either. 

We also found out over the holidays that we are expecting our first baby in August! We are so excited for our little one. I can't believe we are going to be parents!!

It has been a whirlwind the last few months, but I couldn't be happier about living this busy life with Wes! God is so good, and we can't wait to see what 2016 holds.

Something Old, Something New

Today is our 2nd wedding anniversary! I can't believe it has already been 2 years since I said "I do" to the man of my dreams. 

I am loving life in Utah with my best friend! Wes never ceases to amaze me with his compassion, unconditional love, and heart to always serve the Lord and others. 

To celebrate this milestone, I'm sharing my Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, and Something Blue. Each detail meant so much to me on our big day!

Something Old: 
My Dad gave me this ring on my parents' wedding day when I was 5 years old. It was so special to be wearing it as he walked me down the aisle.

Something New:
As soon as my mom and I saw this Sash while shopping for my wedding dress, we were sold! It set the stage for the style dress I was looking for. When I put my dress on and added the sash, I knew it was the one. 

Something Borrowed:
I was honored when my grandmother let me use her handkerchief from Sicily for the wedding. 

Something Blue:
One of my students gave me this gorgeous pair of earrings during teacher appreciation week while we were engaged. I found out he told his mom, "Do you think Miss Parsons will wear them on her wedding day?" It was so sweet, I had to incorporate them! They made the perfect something blue in my bouquet. 

Wedding days are some of the most important and wonderful days of our lives, but they also go by in a blur! Some details like your curls falling out will be forgotten, but the parts that stick with you are the memories of sharing your special day with loved ones!
