    We're totally in love with how Bonnie from Flashes of Style styled our pink blazer with lace shorts and a boater hat. It's a perfect weekend look.

    On my first day as a freshman in high school, I was laughing with my new best friend in class and suddenly noticed the senior assistant. My freshman-self had found her first high school crush. He had longish brown hair and the most amazing eyes I had ever seen. Not only did I see him as ridiculously gorgeous, but for some strange reason I wanted to get to know this guy. Naturally with all the shyness involved, it never really got past the "hi", smile, barely-an-acquaintance deal. Eventually he graduated and years went by without seeing him, but I would randomly think about him from time to time.

    Sometime in early 2010 I was at a friends house and noticed my high school crush on my friend's Facebook page. I was too afraid to add him thinking that he probably wouldn't remember me and that I’d feel like a fool. It had been about eight years after all. A couple of months went by and then I got a friend request on Facebook from none other then him. I added him back, of course, and my dorky panicky self began thinking what I’d say to him if we talked and I wondered if he actually really remembered me. Then one day he commented on one of my photos and later that evening, he sent me a chat online asking how I was. I asked, “Do you even know who this is?” He replied said yes and mentioned that we were in a computer class together, which made me blush. So we talked for a bit, he gave me his number and we started texting and ended up talking for hours and hours that same night. We realized we had a bunch in common and he really wanted to take me on a date which of course I said yes to. Just that morning, I had been thinking about how much I want to go on a date since it had been awhile. I never expected that my little thought/wish would come true. You can bet I went to bed with a big smile on my face that night.

    We talked every night from then on and it still never ever gets old. I feel lucky. I mean, who else would dance with me in the kitchen at midnight or sing with me in the car? Who else would make up stories for me every night about the adventures we'll have together? This is the guy that sits with me and holds me while I cry my eyes out and always makes it better. This is the guy who tells me all the time that I am the most beautiful, creative, and talented person he has ever met and that I have a beautiful mind and can do anything I want. He is extremely encouraging and always believes in me. I wouldn’t trade him for the world, and sometimes when we are just on the couch watching a movie, I can’t help but think to myself and smile that I got the one I wanted. Not only is it amazing that I found someone who understands my silliness and is just as silly as me, but I found someone that I can honestly say I fall in love with over again every single night.

    We like to say that we just had a preview all those years ago…that God simply put us in the same room to know the other existed and sent us on our way to grow and learn on our own, and that when it was the right time, we’d meet and learn and grow in love together. And that's exactly what we do every day.

    In honor of our Birthday we've got an extra special Project DIY edition with one of our favorite bloggers, Dear Lizzy. She's got a whimsical and crafty idea for taking your Birthday cards to the next level. We just can't help but swoon over her charming creation.
     

    DIY: Birthday Board Book

    Instead of designing a handmade birthday card, make a birthday board book where each page is its own confetti filled present!

     
    Materials: 
    Gather some basic supplies: Letter Stickers, Masking Tape,
    Vellum Envies, Striped Buttons, Tickets, Instax Pictures, Number
    Stickers 1-5, Twine, Sequins, and Fabric Strips.
     
     
    Instructions:
    Start with 6 pieces of chipboard and punch 2 holes for the book rings 3/4" from the edge and an inch from the top and bottom. Next, Adhere down a strip of fabric or paper to the left side of the chipboard & attach a vellum envelope. Then fill the envelope with sequins, photos, word confetti that describe the person and a birthday message. Seal the envelope shut with a small piece of masking tape. (The tape works awesome with the vellum envelopes because it easily opens with out tearing and you can re-seal it when you are finished.) Last, add any buttons or tickets to dress up the outside. Added touches: I numbered each page 1-5 with a sticker that I attached on top of the masking tape as extra element.
     

    Design your own wrapping with a doily, twine, cupcake wrapper and tickets. Add a bingo chip with their age to the top layer like a cherry on top.

     

    This is such a fun project because each page with the vellum envelopes is basically a birthday present in itself. It's so fun when the sequins and word confetti spill out and is sure to make someone's birthday special!

     

    Hope you enjoy! Lizzy xo

    I'd go for sweet and simple:

    Fascino Bella Pleated dress with the new found land weaved belt
    bows and buds earrings
    sweet serendipity bow ring
    mansfield park woven clutch
    chelsea crew "malibu" green heels

    I love the colors in the bows and buds earrings, and I think it'd go well with the green heels. The dress is adorable and simple and the accessories would really make it pop. Happy birthday, Ruche!
