Crystal’s Smitten Life: Puppy Parties, Polka Dots, Spring

“Smitten Life” is a monthly series – a photo diary giving you a glimpse of what we’re doing each month to create and live our own smitten lives! We hope you enjoy being inspired by these images as much as we do capturing them. Feel free to share your own smitten life photos on our Facebook!


My dog, Obi, turned three in March. it’s totally normal to throw him a birthday party, right?


…And to bake some cupcakes for that party?


After a scary car accident, I’ve been trying to be mindful of the little moments in life where things feel really good. This was one of them — just me, Bill, and Obi, snuggled on the couch and watching movies.


I got a little creative (weird?) with some of my office decorations. Hi there, gold polka dots!


They also match my mirror. Finally, this place is starting to feel a little lived in.


I also added this gold foil print to my office that says “Treat Yo Self.” It’s a nice reminder that it’s okay to indulge and be kind to myself.


I’ve gushed over Birchbox before, but my April box was so fabulous, I had to take a picture. Look at that beautiful box!


I’m glad to know I’m not “too old” for an Easter basket yet.


This is the yummiest looking lasagna I’ve ever made, with spinach, mushrooms, and lots of delicious cheese.


I took almost this same photo during this same time last year. It reminded me of how quickly time passes by — and also how much I’ve accomplished, experienced, and learned in the last year. Life goes fast, so I’m just doing my best to savor the good parts.
