summer adventures

A little more than two months ago, Ryan and I ventured on a two week cross country adventure that ended in our new home state, Rhode Island.  Ryan just graduated with his MBA from USC and was offered a position at Hasbro.  A tiny part of me wishes that we had more time to explore the states that we drove through but two weeks is a long time to live out of a few suitcases with two adults and two pups crammed in an SUV for hours at a time.  However, it is definitely an experience of a lifetime - something I'm not too sure I'd jump at to do again but will never forget.

Relocating in Providence, RI has been an adjustment.  It's a small but beautiful city - though I miss the hustle and bustle of big cities like NYC and LA.  It is also nice to be closer to our families as we're both from the east coast.  If anyone has any recommendations for places to visit or restaurants to try, please drop me a line. We're looking forward to exploring our new city!

7 Years Ago

 ... I met the love of my life!
Thank you and the Barnes & Noble in Union Square.
Love you, Ryan!

Conversation Hearts

Around the end of January every year, I find myself stockpiling conversational hearts as if there's a coming apocalypse and my life depends on it.  They're ridiculously addictive but far from "good" candy.  Simply put, they're so cute and having them around just makes me happy!

That's why I love all of the DIY conversation hearts floating around the interweb.  Just as cute (if not cuter) and much, much tastier!

With a few tiny drops of food coloring,
these cookie cutters will quickly turn your favorite cookie dough recipe
into the perfect little treat.
conversation heart cookie cutters from Sur La Table

 I love the idea of stamping sweet messages on iced cookies
 I can't wait to try them out (though I bet my cakes won't be half as pretty).

And lastly... these are not edible but they are freaking adorable!

Happy Friday!

I still cannot believe it is already 2013 - it's crazy! I'm hoping to take the weekend to get organized (I find myself trying to organize my life daily) and perhaps finally see Les Miserables.  What are your plans for the weekend?

new in the collection : linden

It's been a while since I posted any new work so, without further ado, introducing... *drumroll* The Linden collection.  Hillary and Michael wanted something simple and understated but with a bit of whimsy.  The invitation suite was printed on luxe pearl white 100% cotton cover in black ink.  A custom liner featuring vibrant watercolor florals provided a delicious pop of color.  View the rest of my collection here.
