Merry Merry

photoA nod to my favorite ballet, The Nutcracker, which I had the pleasure of seeing this holiday season. Just taking a minute to wish you all a happy holiday… I hope the next few days are spent with those you love. I’m looking forward to being with my favorite people and slowing down a bit…these days just go by too fast. Cherish your time, health & good fortune. And thank you, readers, for staying with me!

Merry Christmas! xo

Fancy {Father’s Day} Friday

Cheney_0995_09072013_JS0285-2You got a peek of my dad yesterday {here} — But today’s post is in honor of him and all fathers out there.

Happy Father’s Day Dad — Even though it all went by so fast, I will never forget those few minutes before walking down the aisle. Thanks for standing by my side. I’ll forever be your tiny dancer.

ps. Thanks for all the sweet comments on my 100th post! In case you weren’t here in the beginning, this is my very first post!

Fancy Friday


Thank you for reading this blog every day. Thank you for answering all my stupid questions. Thank you for teaching me how to sew my pointe shoes and put my hair in a bun. Thank you for always being there, mom. You’re the best.

Be sure to thank your mom, grandmother, step-mother, mother-in-law this weekend. They deserve it.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mamas out there!

Fancy Friday {Valentine’s Day edition}

valentine's day


Happy Valentine’s Day, lovely readers!!! I basically squealed when I found this pic on Pinterest a few weeks back and have been hiding it on a secret board just for today! (Need I state the obvious reasons why?!) You’re all my Valentine’s this year – as 2014, so far, has been really fun because of this little blog. Thank you.

Any special plans for tonight? Besides being V-day, it’s also Friday and the start of a long weekend – so those are reasons for anyone to celebrate! The hubby and I are trading our usual Friday night dinner out for Thai takeout and a movie on the couch – some quality time just the two of us. Regardless of what you do or who you’re with, hope it’s a great one!

Hugs & Kisses, loves!

Make a treat from treat.
