Tech Wallpaper: Two Free Desktop Backgrounds for April

Posted by Brenna Malmberg


Enjoy this beach scene with me all month.

Tomorrow starts a new month: April. And like usual, I have a free desktop background download for you. But, while I was making my background, I couldn't decide between the sunny views, so I made two options. Both images come from our cruise to the Bahamas back in March. . . .

Photo Friday: Welcome Wreath

Welcome to our place, or my blog.

Happy Friday and welcome to my blog. I just have a little welcome wreath to share with you today. And if this purple circle looks familiar, it's because I've been using the same Styrofoam wreath since 2012. From Thanksgiving to March Madness, our door has sported many looks: . . .

Floral Bridal Shower Invites with a Touch of Calligraphy

Posted by Brenna Malmberg


Celebrate the soon-to-be-bride with flowers and calligraphy on a chalkboard.

Congrats to the soon-to-be Mrs., and to her sister for pulling off a great bridal shower.

With so many shower puzzle pieces to assemble, I happily agreed to help Michelle with the bridal shower invites. She passed along a few ideas, and I got to drawing. Yes, pencil on paper drawing. Those vibrant florals that grace the front of the card were drawn by me. (I actually talked about all this over on my free phone background download. If you missed that one, you can download the flowers for your phone fo' free.) . . .

Spring Break 2015: History in Charleston

Posted by Brenna Malmberg


Cole and I tour Fort Sumter in the Charleston, South Carolina, harbor.

Welcome to the last leg of our spring break journey. You joined me in the Bahamas and lived vicariously through Disney World photos. Now, we travel north to the port city of Charleston, South Carolina. We basically only blipped through the history-filled city, hitting up Fort Sumter and Drayton Hall. . . .

Spring Break 2015: Disney World Magic

Posted by Brenna Malmberg


Welcome to Disney World!

Yesterday, I showed you the cruise. Today, I bring you Disney World! It's a childhood fantasyland, and I am a complete child at heart.

Disney stops at nothing to embellish your experience with fairytale decoration and its brand. We stayed the night in the All-Star Sports Resort surrounded by giant athletic gear. We lounged by the baseball diamond pool with a pitching Goofy fountain. All the while longingly staring at that billon-ounce Coke behind home plate. After the late afternoon sun, we drove down the road to the Boardwalk to dine at the ESPN Club. Stuffed with cheese fries, we stopped for a game of miniature golf after dinner. What's vacation without mini golf? This course, though, surpassed all others we have played. The Fantasia Gardens and Fairways Miniature Golf offers a legit putting experience. No bumpers. Long greens. Huge sand holes. It challenged us, and the last hole especially. I came into it with a few-stroke lead, and thanks to a terrible rock bounce, lost by one. But losing by one to a putt-putt pro like Cole is still pretty impressive. All this fun was just a taste of the Disney World experience, so we headed to bed so we were ready for a loooooong day at Magic Kingdom. . . .
