Blogger's Favorites -- Paula of Two Ellie

"turning 30" inspiration board via two ellie...

I'm headed home from Germany today and couldn't be more excited. It's been a great trip, but I can't wait to get back to Bryan and the girlies and our normal routine! But before I jump on the plane I had to share this week's blogger's favorites list, as it's just so fantastic.

I am a huge fan of Paula...she's kind and thoughtful and creative and a supremely lovely person. Her excellent blog two ellie, is a daily ready...v. inspiring, and that girl can rock seriously rock some J. Crew!

So without further ado, herewith Paula's favorites. Enjoy and have a splendid weekend!

I was rather taken a back when Joslyn asked me to share a few of my favorites. Simple Lovely was one of the first blogs I read years ago and inspired me to create my own. Her style is impeccable and is always such a source of inspiration.


My Home -- It is where so many memories are being made with friends and family. Where great meals are eaten. Where I have seen my children's personalities shine. Every item in my home is an item that I adore. It is the place where I feel most at peace. Besides I am the epitome of an homebody.


Fresh Flowers -- I love all types but peonies, english roses, tulips, and hydrangeas are my favorites. The only thing that can make them better is if they come straight in from my garden.


Photography -- I especially love shooting a wedding.To truly be a part of every moment and capture those moments as they unfold is a very unique gift and such an honor. Being able to share this passion with my husband makes it all the more special.


Greek Yogurt and Honey -- Two very simple foods combined is amazing. I enjoy it daily as my dessert. I simply can not get enough.


Aging -- I think there are a few ages that can be considered milestones of life. To me 30 is one of them and this Sunday 30 I will become. I am rather excited to say the least. A whole new chapter of life opening up and to see how far I have come is a beautiful thing. My twenties were filled with new beginnings, marriage, two children, and most importantly finding God and becoming who I am today. I see 30 as still growing, but also refining myself as person. To truly just be and enjoy every minute of it.


My Family -- This one could probably go without saying, but I truly adore my family. They are what I live for daily.
