Spring is when new light begins to shine in our house windows and we feel this incredible urge to clean everything in sight. We really start to see all the dust that has settled over the winter months, especially here in the Midwest.
It’s time to get organized! Don’t forget that jewelry drawer full of earrings with lost backs or mates, the unwanted and unused jewelry and our every day pieces that need a scrubbing. For me, there is nothing more satisfying than having my home and goods completely organized. Talk about an instant mood changer. And with the popularity of professional organizers like Marie Kondo, I know many others feel the same way. However, with jewelry, “does it spark joy” is just the first question. There are other things to think about. So, I bring you my sure-fire method for spring cleaning your jewelry box and getting your jewels in tip top shape.Continue Reading

True love in the time of COVID-19
Kasey and Andrew met at a bar, Bodega, through a mutual friend. From that night on, their story has been nothing short of a fairytale. Their love carried them through eighteen happy months until one day, Andrew decided to propose.
With the help of close friends Shawnee & Palmer, a surprise beach proposal was planned in Wilmington, NC.
“The main idea was to tell Kasey we were all getting dinner disguised as celebrating Andrew’s first time meeting them. Before dinner, Shawnee, the wife of Palmer, told Kasey she needed to take some aerial beach shots for a client of hers. From there we would head to dinner. We arrived at the beach, and I walked Kasey away from Shawnee’s photo area. While leading Kasey away, she jokes, ‘What if you proposed to me right now?’ I replied, ‘What if I am?’ and got down on my knee and asked her to be my wife.”
