{happy hour: anna from a newfound treasure}

I am SO excited for Happy Hour today. Anna from A Newfound Treasure, one of my absolute favorite blogs right now, has agreed to join us for a drink!

Hello! It's Anna from A Newfound Treasure here, and I am so excited to take part in Happy Hour today!

I'm a red wine snob all the way, but for such an occasion, I'm indulging in the most refreshing of drinks. I currently have 3 different kinds of mint in my herb garden and am so looking forward to using some in my favorite cocktail in the upcoming months! Who's with me?

My blog is a compilation of everything that I love. It focuses primarily on fashion and interior decorating, but I venture out from time to time.

I love being a stay-at-home mom! It really is my dream job. Perhaps when my boys are old enough to both be in school, I can be a plain ol' housewife. On the weekends, I am a wedding photographer, but over the past year, I have limited myself to booking 1 wedding per month. This has really allowed us to enjoy our weekends as a family and travel with the boys more. In another life, without children, I'd confess my dream job to be a personal stylist for someone like Olivia Palermo. I can dream big, right?

I have wanted an investment rug for some time now and dream of the day that I can actually get one. The ones shown above are perfection -- especially the pink rug in the kitchen! I am going to Israel later this month and have my hopes set on finding a Turkish rug for a great deal to bring back... fingers crossed.

There really is nowhere like it in the world. I'm convinced that everyone needs to visit Italy at least once in their lifetime. The food, the people, the sights... everything about it is wonderful!

Gaaahh! There are so many that I love, but here are 5 that I am sure to check nearly every day:

1. Atlantic-Pacific
2. Small Shop Studio
3. The Vault Files
4. Flourish Design + Style
5. Made By Girl

Joelle, thanks so much for having me over for Happy Hour. I'm excited to see who's up next. :)
And I look forward to seeing y'all over at A Newfound Treasure!

Anna is adorable and has a truly enviable sense of style! I love that she is a mommy like me, but still finds the time to keep up her beautiful page. Italy...totally! A Turkish rug...do it!

Anna thank you SO much for the shout-out. Really means a lot!
