It’s such a reward to work in a place surrounded by amazing people and wonderful influences. A few weeks ago, we happily introduced you to Catherine, one of the two awesome owner’s of Waterlily. This week, we would love for you to get to know the other half of the perfect pair, Abbey.
The first thing I think when I think of Abbey is creativity and art. She has such a creative mind. She is inspired. She is colorful. She is imaginative. She is innovative. The list seriously goes on. It’s so fun watching her revamp the store, she makes it look easy! Abbey recently took a trip to Bali with her husband, Adam, and her creative juices got flowing. She is planning another exciting trip back to Bali, with her focus on Waterlily- be on the look out for some incredible things happening within the stores this summer!
Abbey cherishes her time spent with her husband and their adorable little sons, Trevor + Finn. They are the ultimate beach family!
Take a further look into Abbey’s life:
Whether you are a believer of creating goals after the post-party apocalypse on 01/01, or you find the whole "new year, new me" concept a stretch, there's always time to work on improving yourself. Personally, I enjoy the idea of a fresh start with each new year. Don't get me wrong, I don't think that I am going to change over night. But, I do find this to be a good time to reflect on the past year and work on moving forward and making positive changes. Keep in mind, we can do this at any point in our lives. So if you decide you want to make a change on any given Tuesday, by all means- go for it! I've read other blogs that have inspired me to create a short list of my own. Maybe this will ignite a spark of inspiration for you too!
1. Word of the year. I saw a quote from (this) blog say that rather than making resolutions, they choose a word for the year. I like this concept because it goes hand in hand with the law of attraction: if you believe it, dream it, think of it enough, you will inevitably obtain what you are after. My word? Positivity.
2. Dive into hobbies. Sometimes we are so wrapped up in our everyday rituals that we forget to take time for ourselves. The first few interests that came to my mind are the ones I have decided to focus on first: drawing, photography, yoga and graphic design. Once I add these hobbies into my ritual, I'll be happy to add more to my list. Hobbies are what make you, you! Find yours!
3. Prepare for the next day. This always slips my mind. Night time rolls around and i'm snug as a bug in a rug and remember that I should prepare lunch for tomorrow or pick out my outfit. And then I tell myself "I'll just wake up early". And then what do ya know, I slept in and am scurrying in the morning.

Paint the town with this little bag on your shoulder. This black crossbody packs a lot of punch. Accented with a gold concho for a midwestern vintage feel.
The laser cut detail on this oversized tote is not the only reason why we love this bag so much! Style meets practicality, reverse for a solid navy blue leather exterior. Big enough to fit everything a city girl would need.
Which bag would work best for you? Let us know, we'd love to hear!
I am VERY disorganized... I am always envious of those people keeping lists, marking up their calendars with appointments and don't even get me started on sorting through my mail. Anyone that lives with me or works with me has experienced the whirlwind that is Abbey. I start projects only to leave them midway, frozen on the floor because a.) I'm not quite done or b.) I have an even better idea that I just HAVE to start immediately.
This ridiculous inability to focus can seem maddening when I get sucked into the world of blogs. I find so many fun projects and ideas, but it can be very overwhelming to keep track of everything - especially when life gets in the way and I can't visit my favorite blogs or the regular.
