Flamingo Party Inspiration

One thing I love about Pinterest is the never-ending supply of ideas. Type in “girl’s birthday,” “turning 3″ or “pink party” and the stream of beautiful images ready to be DIY’d is non-stop. Another reason I love this is that I can browse the ideas along with Emery and get her reaction to all the […]

Emery Style: Polka Dots & Pink Shoes

Life is a runway, right? As we were walking into Publix this week, Emery ran ahead saying, “Mommy. Mommy! Look. Right here. I can say cheese!” She made a beeline for this little step outside the cart return and proceeded to ham it up as I reached for my iPhone. What a doll! <3

Seaside sunsets  |  jamiray.com

Tutus and Toes in the Sand | Seaside, FL

Emery and I made a little extra time for the sunset today, just because. Her ballet class is about 100 steps from the beach, so it’s practically illegal not to skip over and check it out. Of course, a sweet treat is almost always involved and today we went for Dawson’s yogurt with sprinkles and […]

G Foley's Dinner

Delicious Dinner at G. Foley’s

It isn’t often that we venture beyond our usual 30A / South Walton / Destin stomping grounds for dinner, but a special occasion and a mouth-watering menu for two is enough to send us all the way to Panama City. I have to give Hunter full credit for this find, as he discovered the talented […]


30A Street Style Ezine | Pre-Spring

Another labor of love complete, y’all. I’m so excited to share the latest issue of the 30A Street Style e-zine with all of you. This is one of my favorite times of year, as we all get ready for the busy spring and summer seasons ahead. I worked so hard to try to capture that […]

Party Popcorn with Sprinkles

Making Party Popcorn

My little helper and I have been browsing Pinterest lately looking for fun birthday party ideas. (Someone is fast approaching her 3rd birthday and won’t let anyone forget!) When we came across a recipe for “Party Popcorn” it was love at first sight. We love popcorn in our house and the idea of adding a […]

30A Food: CUP  |  jamiray.com

30A Dining: CUP in Blue Mountain Beach

After meeting the sweet owners at Rosemary Beach’s Cottages for Kids ribbon cutting several weeks back, I finally stopped in Blue Mountain Beach long enough to sample one of 30A’s newest eateries, CUP Food You Pick Up. I can already tell this place is going to be a favorite. The concept is simple. Delicious, healthy meals […]

Gold Pumps under $100

Gold Pumps Under $100

Okay, I lied. They’re not all under $100, but seven out of eight isn’t bad. My obsession with gold continues as I’ve been searching for the perfect metallic pump. While I’ve been leaning toward yellow gold in other things like jewelry and decor, I kind of like the silvery shade of the ones toward the […]

Emery Style - Cobalt Blue + Military Jacket

Emery Style: Cobalt Blue + Military Jacket

These days, getting Emery dressed has been a challenge. It isn’t our differing opinion that adds minutes to the morning routine (at least not yet!), it is the freezing cold, arctic front that has turned our mild Florida winter into something of a tundra. Luckily, layers are our friend and we’ve been piling them on. […]

Printable Calendar - My Scandinavian Home

2014 Printable Calendars

Okay, so when it comes to calendars and organization for the new year, maybe I’m a little late to the party, but as they say, it’s better to arrive late than to be ugly. (Someone says that, I’m sure). I have been using my lovely Emily Ley Simplified Planner for the first two weeks and […]
