Father's Day Gift Guide 2018 & A Few Random Thoughts



*This post contains affiliate links*
It seems impossible that it's almost Father's Day 2018! Am I right? This year has flown by. I chalk it up, in part, to some of the disastrous events that have occurred this year, which haven't shared on here, and I'm not sure if or when I ever will. That's okay. Things are okay, or as okay as they can be. I will say, take a look around you, at your friends and family and be grateful to God for each and every one of them because when the truly hard things in life occur, they are the ones that will pull you though. You'll pull each other through. I've learned that this year more than I could have ever imagined.

Anyway, enough of that, here we are, half way through the year. Do you guys have big plans for Father's Day? I have to say, we are fairly low key, and we will likely do church and lunch or dinner with my Dad. He was just asking when Father's Day is...I guess he wanted to make sure he didn't miss it! I bought my Dad's gift back around Mother's Day actually, and I really just happened upon it. He always runs the risk of losing his keys, so I got him one of those Tile System Item Trackers. You just hook it to your keys, or whatever, and you can track them with your phone, in the unfortunate even that you lose them. It's less than $25, and I think it will make a great gift! I hope we won't have any more lost key incidents! He's 85, so the memory isn't that great anymore! He has gone all over town looking for his keys, only to realize he dropped them down in my couch. This will be the perfect gift!!




I've put together a small selection of items that I think any Dad would be happy to receive this Father's Day. To shop, just click on the photos below, it's that easy. I intentionally kept the selection small so as not to overwhelm you with time running short and all! Any Dad would love either pair of these leather flip flops. My husband wear them all the time. Swim trunks for this time of year are a perfect gift! For the professional Dad, the tie clip and the business card holder are a very affordable, yet great, option. 



Whatever you end up doing for Father's Day, or whatever you get your Dad, just remember to enjoy the day with him, and have fun. That's what's really important. Cherish the time you spend with your parents because they won't always be here. 

As always, I hope you enjoyed this post, and please feel free to leave a comment or send me a message at Ginger Photog . If you love this post, be sure to share it with your friends! Thank you all so much for supporting my blog!

Summer Wedding Style ~ Each Piece Under $50



*This post contains affiliate links*


I don't know what it is about green, maybe it's because I'm a May baby, and emerald is my birthstone, but green is just lovely! I'm completely drawn to it. I've eyed and eyed this green dress, and I may have shared it before, but right now, it's on sale for less than $40! Can you even imagine? I mean, it's gorgeous! I see it as a great dress for summer weddings or other events where you need to get a little dressy, and I think gold is the perfect accessory color!

It's so gorgeous, you don't want to muddle it up too much with a bunch of accessories. I'm almost always an advocate for a great necklace, but in this case, I think it looks lovely without one. I think a pretty pair of earrings and a dainty bracelet are prefect. This dress just stands on it's own so nicely! These green earrings and gold bracelet are the perfect compliments without overwhelming the dress.







For a handbag, I love a simple gold envelope clutch. It doesn't take away from the dress, and it easily goes with a great pair of gold heeled sandals. It's simple and sophisticated, and these gold sandals...I mean...WOW! They are less than $40, and they are gorgeous!





Every piece in this gorgeous look is less than $50! So, essentially, you can piece together an entire wedding/party look for less than $250! The best part is that all of these pieces are great staple items that you will use again and again.

Shop the entire look below simply by clicking on the picture:

I hope you are all having a great weekend! I'm having a leisurely Saturday, which I feel like I really needed! The weather has been thundery today, so taking time to catch upon some things inside has been perfect! Be sure to follow my Facebook Page for daily outfit posts with links to shop! As always, I love your thoughts and comments, so please feel free to leave them below!

XOXO,

The Makings for a Cozy Mountain Cottage



The North Georgia Mountains are a special, special place. While we spend most of our time in Florida, very close to Pensacola, we also own a cozy mountain cottage in the North Georgia Mountains. While Florida is great, the Mountains call me home each time. It is so peaceful and relaxing there. Everyone takes life at a slower pace and it truly is just a happy place for me and for others. If you have never visited North Georgia, I highly recommend it. The natural beauty is unlike anything else and you will be content just staring out a window, or taking a walk through the woods, with the cool mountain air breathing down on you.
