Well, that was fun!! I was so lucky to get to attend a great event, right here in Jupiter, Florida. Halle Frey of Flowers & Fringe offered a wreath making workshop at one of my favorite new shops in Jupiter, The Ileen Boutique. My girlfriends & I signed up online and last night was the event. We had a BLAST! Halle supplied all the greenery & wreath making supplies and helped us create some pretty amazing pieces!
Want to take a wreath workshop too? Halle is having one more workshop Wednesday, 12/16 at Uptown Art, West Palm Beach. Reserve your spot today! Have a great weekend! – Nicole

Fall is in the air! I know, it’s still 80+ degrees outside here in Jupiter, Florida, but that’s OK. Us Floridians know Fall is really just a mind set until late October. So for now, we’ll drink our Pumpkin Spice Lattes, decorate our homes in warm seasonal colors and start planning our Halloween and Thanksgiving gatherings!
Looking for something Fall-ish to do this weekend? Check out these fun, local events!
We’ll, it looks like us South Floridians may be in for a very wet and windy weekend. I was going to put together a list of local events for you guys, but let’s face it, Tropical Storm Erika will have most of us on the couch with Netflix, listening to the rain come down!
There is one event I hope you all check out, before it gets stormy. Furry Friends Adoptions & Clinic is having their Hang 20 Surf Dog Classic this Saturday, from 8:00am – 2:30pm.

Happy Friday, friends! It’s the last weekend of summer before our Palm Beach County students head back to class. I have mixed feelings about the school year starting. The pros, the kids stay busy, life has a defined schedule and of course that new school supply smell. The cons, the kids stay busy, life has a defined schedule and of course the lines at office supply stores! Haha! So I put together a list to help you squeeze the last bit of fun out of the summer. Enjoy!
Happy Saturday to all you beautiful blog readers! I hope your week was splendid! I’ve been straight up, crazy busy…and I loved EVERY second of it! Real Estate is really busy this time of year, and when I’m busy I’m happy. This post kind of sums up my week, in iPhone photos. Hope you like it!
