I love the styling of the groom of Tec Petaja's latest project.

I've lately become very interested in men's style. I think it's because not enough guys out there really take advantage of the great options they have. In my opinion, it's quite easy to be stylish for guys. I just care more about guys looking good than girls looking good, for some reason.

I feel like with most weddings, people put more emphasis on the girls and just stick the guys with ill-fitting rental suits. I care more about my [hypothetical future] husband looking hot on our wedding day and me looking hot. But that's just me.

I picked up this book at the library the other day. I had seen it before and was very intrigued. It's a fun book, I recommend it.

Because of it, I started to read the Little House in the Big Woods. Hot dang, y'all. Caroline Ingalls was freaking amazing. I mean, Charles Ingalls was really cool, shooting bears and building cabins and whatnot. But Caroline made butter, cheese, and all sorts of other cool things. The thing that particularly fascinated me was that she made straw hats. SHE MADE THEM.

I'm not saying that those times would be fun to live in. I am so used to heat, electricity, and my livelihood not burning in fires or being ruined by droughts...but I can't help but think how cool it is that that sort of thing was normal back then. It makes me sad how making things yourself is not so prevalent.

My friends don't get my crafting love. It's the neatest thing to make something useful for yourself. It is so rewarding. I'm so glad I have it.
So, this guy I know crocheted a little bit of my blanket for me tonight.

In case you were wondering...

yeah, it was one of the hottest things ever. Not gonna lie.

I would love to get this for a wedding gift over plates or sheets or toasters anyday. Who needs toast when you have a cozy, heartfelt, handmade gift from a loved one?

Peach seersucker.

I don't know if I've ever heard any words so perfect.

I'm loving anything peach these days, and this is the perfect dress for summer. Major lust over here. I'm imagining it with a brown leather bag and white sandals, maybe? Oh yes. That would be so lovely.

This guy made his wife's wedding dress.
Who does that?!
Obviously, he does. And he is awesome for it.

I've been wanting to go back to Maine so badly these days.
I miss it.
