What We Feel When It's Quiet
IMG_8711.JPG

When signing up for a day of fishing... I didn't realize that I would be signing up for hours of self realization and prayer.

What I came to realize was...

The sunrise is more beautiful when you're surrounded by the people you love...the sky is more clear when you are in the present moment and the answers to all your questions are loud... when you are quiet long enough to actually hear them.

If you have these moments alone... with what feels like a spiritual moment.. what questions would you have? What feelings would fulfill you? What really matters to you at that time?

Take a moment for yourself and make that pretty heart of yours happy.

For The Love of Donuts!!!!

Happy National Donut Day!!!! Did you wait to see the Insta posts before you ran over to grab yourself a donut and take a really cute pic?

I've had this scheduled in my phone for a month now... With my alarm going off at 5AM... I tried to beat the sugary crowd... instead I waited in a 45 minute line. That's okay!!! Everyone was soo happy to get their donut- it was a fun line. 

If you haven't been by the donut shop today... I would say swing by Krispy Kreme... you don't even need to buy a donut they are just handing them out for free. Yes... I had 3 while waiting in line... so?

I am easily excited... and today is seriously just making my day. What's not to love about these sugary treats? The fact that they are stuffed with super delicious fillings and covered with sparkles.. I mean sprinkles. 

If you are debating if you should eat that donut... I say DO IT.... Eat 3 of them. Why the heck not? You only live once... and honestly.... you are probably gaining more weight by stressing yourself out thinking if you should... than what you would just enjoying that one treat. 

Get Your Donut GIIIRRRRRLLLLLLLL!!!

Happy National Donut Day!!!! 

P.S if you read this... send me a pic of you eating your donut!! Tag us!!!! We will be a little fatty with ya! 

Don't forget to shop this romper... we carry a limited quantity in all our items and I can promise you... this pretty baby won't be here after the weekend. It's a Southern Bun Bun Fav!

To My One True Love

Dear Southern Bunnies,

I thought about writing about what I did over the Memorial Day weekend and then decided I would write about something a little more real. Something that's been not only what I have been thinking about lately but it seems as though there is some unusual cloud of similar things going on when I talk to some of the girls who shop in store and my friends.

Let's start from the beginning.

I did not just move to San Antonio or back from out of town as many people may think. I was in a relationship for the last 10 years, did not have social media and decided to resurface when I decided to open the boutique.

I left my 10 year relationship to open The Southern Bunny. Why? At the end of the day I loved someone with all my heart. I was going to marry that someone. But I also loved something else- I loved my passion I loved the desire and I loved my dreams. Something was missing.

Prior to The Southern Bunny... I was living in a constant day dream both in my relationship and working for a local non profit. I was drawing pictures of images of the boutique in a diary and surfing the web in meetings. I was cutting out brands and styles from magazines of the things I would carry if I were to open a store one day. It wouldn't let me sleep and I just could not concentrate.

So one day I decided- do I want to live a life of being content? Or did I want to possibly lose everything I had and try to chase my dreams?

I think you know my decision.

I have never felt more alive, scared, happy and excited. Really, you can say I feel every emotion. I love it. 

So what happened after this little bunny hopped her way to pursuing what she envisioned?

I found myself high on life and high of love with the boutique and with every customer that walked in the door... and when I thought I would look around to see that 10 year relationship "someone" chase me or be beside me, they weren't around.

Instead, I found myself in love again with someone new. I found myself so in love with everything around me... with everything about this person. It makes a major difference when you put everything out there.

This last year my time was spent falling in love with the new arrivals, all the bunnies that shop and work in store and falling madly in love with this new person that was so supportive and new in my life.

So what's my message here? Do whatever makes you happy... do whatever scares you.

Anyone who loves you will chase you and be with you and believe in you. They don't give up on you. They don't let you give up on dreams or goals. They will just be there with you.

And at the end of the day if they aren't chasing you... then why be sad?

Just come to The Southern Bunny... where Some-Bunny loves you.

After All--- Maybe our one true love isn't a person... maybe it's a dream.

I love you all.

XOXO- The Southern Bunny

... Far Enough to Get Lost

My mind and soul lives somewhere between... flowers, retro vibe, and a little bit of country and southern charm. I am not exactly sure how those all go together but they do.

My eyes are for love & happiness- holding a permanent grainy filter to take me into my La La Land.

With our one year anniversary for The Southern Bunny right around the corner- I have been thinking a lot...my thoughts go between many different things but for the most part they are- Wow!! Omg, Omg, Omg!!! So totally amazing and.... Yay!

I think what's been the most amazing part of this one year journey is looking back at all the photos from the last year- seeing my life change from a girl leaving her full time job from a non-profit organization to embracing what her soul was hungry for. It amazes me to be able to not only capture the items we sell but the lifestyle of the boutique and the daily activities we do to build our brand.

If you have been watching our Insta Story you will see that most of my free time is well spent in Austin.... it's nice to play tourist and get a away for a day or two.

I think its important to take a moment to put the phone away (unless it's for a picture), dress up and enjoy the love and laughter of the one you love. Austin is easy enough for us to get away for a day, but far enough to get lost in one another.

So on my next day off... if you are off to... maybe you should meet me in Austin!!!.... I will probably be brunching at Launderette... listening to some live music outside with my toes in the grass... then finish with cocktails under that beautiful velvet tent at Justine's.

I'll see you there babes. XOXO- JENN

The above awareness and idea came from one of our bunnies Carly Randall. She wanted to bring awareness to all that Love is Loving yourself first. I encourage all my girls to voice their opinions and I just adore Carly for bringing light to this subject. You go girl!
