Honey-Glazed Carrots with Aunt Sue’s Raw & Unfiltered Honey

My momma always taught me never to show up at a party empty handed. Whether it’s flowers, a candle, or a bottle of wine for the host, I’ve made sure to stick to that golden rule. With Thanksgiving coming up, I’m so excited to partner with Aunt Sue’s Raw & Unfiltered Honey, and I'm making plans to show up to dinner with a side dish that is both incredibly delicious and on the healthier side. I try to cut out processed sugar when possible, and I've been using honey as a healthier alternative. Replacing sugar with honey has been an

Get The Look: All About Layers

One of my favorite things about this time of year is the necessity to layer-up on clothes. Putting together the perfect outfit now means using various patterns and textures, building until you achieve the perfect balance of fashion and warmth. I love how a little pop of color underneath a solid sweater or blazer can completely transform the way it looks. When it’s done right, layering should be flattering and pulled together, rather than feeling bulky or sloppy. If I’ve got a lot happening on top, I tend to keep it simple below with fitted jeans or pants. When I’m

Happy World Kindness Day!

I'm pretty sure November 13th is my new favorite day of the year. You know why? Because today is World Kindness Day! I truly believe kindness starts with one person. Haven’t you ever been greeted by someone who was just so kind and genuine that they brightened your day in an instant? I know it happens to me all the time. And when it does, I am encouraged to be that person to someone else. I’d like to think that person passes their kindness on from there and so on, like a really awesome game of telephone. This is something

My family is thrilled to be celebrating the arrival of my sister Katherine and her fiance TJ’s sweet baby girl, Avery! To celebrate, my sister Marabeth pulled off yet another unbelievable event in Nashville. The baby shower was a fall pumpkin theme, which was perfectly adorable. I got assigned the awesome task of being a mixologist. With a little help from an online search, I whipped up a Pumpkin Pie Punch, and I'm sharing the delicious recipe below. These were delicious! Marabeth decked out the house in hay bales, custom baby onesies, and set the dining tables in roses and

Sleep Tight: 6 Tips To Get Your Best Sleep Ever

It’s a fact: getting a solid 7-8 hours of sleep is good for you. We know being better rested not only makes us more mentally clear and physically energized for whatever the next day brings, but what might surprise some is how much our skin, mood, weight, immunity and even memory benefits from catching those all-important ZZZs. Not all sleep is quality sleep, however. The goal is to reach a deep, deep slumber, otherwise known as REM. There are lots of things we can do to encourage a successful snooze! Below are some of my six best tips for creating

Everything You Need To Do If Your Pet Is Missing

A few days ago, Brooks and I found an adorable dog on the side of the road near our home. The little guy didn’t have any tags on, so there wasn’t a number to call. Of course I immediately thought about Lexi and Harley -- what would I do if the unthinkable happened? What would I do if one of them was lost? They both have microchips, but what if they didn’t get picked up by someone who knew what to look for? After speaking to several animal specialists, I learned that even the best of behaved dogs are curious

Get the Look: Sugar and Spice

I really, really enjoy digging through my closet or exploring a store to find perfect pairings of pieces that inspire me. Not only is fashion fun, it is also an excellent opportunity for self-expression. Since getting married, I’ve never felt sexier or more feminine. I find myself drawn to delicate things in materials like lace or satin. I love the way I feel when I’m head-to-toe in super-femme finds. To me, this outfit is the perfect combination of sexy, soft, and strong. The white lace, high-neck elongated sleeves are a throwback to the ultra-feminine days of corsets and hoop skirts.

Get the Look: Flower Power

I love the way this outfit makes me feel -- it's somehow both comfortable and fashionable. With fall right around the corner, throwing a denim jacket over whatever fun summer pieces I'm not ready to put away is going to be my go-to move. If you like this look as much as I do, I have all the details (and similar looks for less!) below. flower dress | denim jacket | sandals | sunglasses !function(d,s,id){var e, p = /^http:/.test(d.location) ?
