I need your opinion!

  So as you all know I am in LOVE with anything vintage. When I started this blog almost 3 years ago. I was planning my wedding, and was blogging about wedding stuff (most included diy and vintage wedding items). However, time's change, people change, and life happens. With all that being said, I am wondering where I can take this blog. Would you all like to see wedding stuff? Fashion? Vintage item related to kids? To home's? Or a little of everything? I was thinking a little of everything, however, I want my reader's opinion first. I want to try and blog more, at least my goal is once a week (I say that because, I am now married, and we have 4 kids, I work, and will be starting school again this fall, after having our forth this past March). Please just leave a comment on what you would like to see on this blog. I would greatly appreciate the feedback. Thank you :)

Summer wedding

 Oh how I love to go to a summer wedding! Who doesn't right? The weather is nice and warm, and for the most part great! Flower's are in bloom, and the bird's are out. You can have your choice of an outdoor or indoor wedding! I recently went to a wedding and was in love with the centerpiece's, wish I would had these at my wedding! They have such a great vintage look to them, and they are made out of mason jars. Everyone love's mason jar! Just look on Pinterest and you will find million's of project's to do with a mason jar :) These centerpiece's are so easy to do, with wedding budget possibly reaching over ten grand. It's great to save money when you can, and do a little DIY project!

Please excuse the weird angle of this picture.

Love how they used lemon's in the water! Here is some more idea's that I found on Pinterest! Enjoy :)

I found this on Pinterest, then the link brought me to this blog! Check it out, and see how to make this! Love the burlap, it's so pretty :)

This is also a great idea!  Floating candles are alway's  a great choice to your wedding decor!
