Good morning all! It’s been a couple of months since my last blog post, I am terribly sorry for the delay, it’s been a crazy couple of months. In the 5-6 months since my last blog entry I have gotten married, expanded Urban Hippie LLC, and have be enjoying a beautiful summer with my family.
Just to give everyone a recap, Urban Hippie LLC specializes in, refurbishing and creating home décor, bath essentials, and apparel. We recently have started taking on jobs for interior design. We are able to come into your home or place of business and transform it to your vision and also use your current pieces and restore them into new decor. I am loving these amazing opportunities and feel so fortunate that people love our style and work that UH is being sought after.
Another incredible update is that Urban Hippie LLC has been featured in THREE publications for our work at a May wedding we supplied decor for! This has been such a huge honor to be recognized across the country. We offer decor for special event as well as making timeless bridal brooch bouquets that last not only during your special day but for years to come.
The publications that have featured us are, Borrowed & Blue , Modern Weddings, and in September we will be featured in Glittery Bride! (I will post the link when it becomes available.)

Every spring and summer I not only enjoy the warmer weather but I enjoy planting seeds into the ground and watching how they grow into something that nourishes your body. Last spring was my first time planting a garden in my very own home, I used to have to ask my father if I can plant fruits and veggies in his backyard when I still lived at my parents home, so to be able to plant whatever I wanted and how ever big I wanted was a dream come true. Well, spring and summer came and went and my garden that I was so excited about produced about 15 tomatoes (i hate tomatoes, so those got given away) 4 heads of lettuce, 10 cucumbers, 4 eggplants, and 6 squashes, not bad for my first garden but it really only lasted me to about the second week in August. So after a not so successful outcome I informed my fiance that I wanted a better garden for next season, luckily around the end of September my father was replacing all the old windows in our 3 family home and asked us if we wanted them for anything, gave me the idea, lets build a greenhouse! We discussed it and looked into some pictures and ideas and what I thought we decided on was a relatively small greenhouse and then I would use the rest for DIY projects (we will get to that project in another post). One Saturday morning in early October I wake up from hearing saw and electrical noises outside, I spring up and look out the window to Justin and his friend building what looks to be a house! I run outside and say “What are you doing?!?” he informs me to go back inside, dont look out the window, go out if I can, and come back in about 3 hours. When I came out 4 hours later (because I really didnt want to walk out into another shock) I am blown away! He made this amazingly beautiful greenhouse out of all the windows from my childhood home and now we would be able to start to plant and grow our seeds, so come spring our yard will be flourished with greenery, vegetables, and fruits!
So here we are June 8 and my garden and the greenhouse are doing great! I couldn’t be happier seeing all the progress and hard work pay off, I can’t wait to see how much we are able to harvest this year.
