May Instagrams


Before we get too far into June, I wanted to share a round up of some of my Instagrams from May! It was such a fun month--warmer weather, my birthday, and a couple vacations (woohoo!). I've noticed that my blog is often quieter when I'm extra busy in my "real life", so even though I kind of slacked on blog posts this month, I actually posted a lot of 'grams. Here are a few of my faves! How was your month??

Midcentury style nightstand

We got this cute nightstand from Overstock, and I'm obsessed with it! It's a dead ringer for a nightstand I've been eyeing from West Elm--but half the price.

Baskets of fresh waffle cones

With warmer weather comes...ice cream dates, of course! My favorite place in Seattle is Molly Moon's (their honey lavender ice cream is THE BEST). I love that they make fresh waffle cones right there, too.

Floral flats for summer

Very busy

The London Plane // Seattle

The London Plane--this place is g-o-r-g-e-o-u-s. And their pastries are delish!


Fabric rainbow


I got a hair cut this month, and my first balayage! It's pretty subtle (I kind of wish I'd gotten more color added), but I like it.

Gorgeous peonies

And of course I couldn't resist posting some PEONIES from the farmer's market! I don't care how overgrammed they are, I'll never get sick of peonies.


This is from our trip to Texas...I was obsessed with all the cacti. What's the name of the big one that looks like a giant aloe vera plant? Anyone know? I love it.

May Instagrams // At Home in Love

Ben's grandparents have fruit trees, so we picked fresh peaches and plums almost every day. They were sooo good.

Aqua and red

Friday Harbor, WA

After Austin, we took another mini-vacation to Friday Harbor. I love that place! If you live in Washington and have never been, it's definitely worth spending a long weekend there. In fact, if I could figure out a way to earn a living over there, I'd be up for moving...that's how much I like it.

Giant party balloons

Part of the reason we went to Friday Harbor in the first place is because I signed up for a Be Crafty workshop that was held in an old barn there. It was so fun!

At Home in Love Instagrams

Overall, it was just really nice to have some vacation time together, get some sun, and not look at a computer screen for a full week (!!).


And that was my May, in a nutshell! Tell me about yours...and if you'd like to follow me on Instagram, I'm @athomeinlove. Come say hi!

    It might be an agave. I couldn't find a photo of a specific species that looked exactly like that, but "agave" was my first thought. That's if it's a native, and not some ornamental from elsewhere that escaped into the wild and is taking over...

      I think you’re right! Thank you :)

    Wow, I don't know where to start what I love the most! ;-) Your hair looks gorgeous! Are your big curls natural (mine are too, but a mix of curly and waves)? It was Donut Day, right? I hope you enjoyed lots of them, but these in your picture look truly yummy!
    Oh and I LOVE LOVE LOVE peonies, possibly the most beautiful flower there is (that is, if you ask me...haha!). Hugs, Inge x

      Thank you so much Inge! My hair is naturally wavy but in the "after" photo the hair stylist had curled it :) Yes, it was Donut Day! I definitely indulged then too. And I looove peonies so much too. They're so pretty at every stage, from the closed up bud to half open to all the way open. I try to keep peonies in my house as long as they're in season! I'll be so sad when they go back to being super expensive.

    You had a pretty amazing May. One week away from the computer?? As much as I love my internets, that sounds amazing. And your hair!!! Making me crave a cut <3 it looks beautiful.

      I knowwww! I still checked stuff on my phone so I can't say I was totally disconnected, but it was still pretty great. And thank you!
