Since Piper turned one we have been attending different mommy & me classes. It’s such a special time at this young age, and to be able to share in their learning and development is so fun. We tried swim classes at 18 months, which Piper was not a big fan of. We will probably revisit this next summer.
Most recently we tried gymnastics and Piper really seemed to thrive in this environment. It has some structure, and some free play and the kids are able to try different types of jumps, grab on to the rings, practice somersaults etc. It was a lot of fun.
We have been taking music classes with the Music Together program since Piper turned one. She adores the cd’s that come with the class, and really enjoys singing the songs…outside of class. In class she seems to become very observant and really absorbs everything that is going on around her. It’s fun to see her respond to different types of classes in different ways, and watch how her personality and likes and dislikes come through. I would LOVE to hear what types of classes you guys have tried! Has anyone tried My Gym or Gymboree?
I have always had a fascination with sea horses. There is just something magical about them don’t you think? So when I discovered Sea Dragons at the aquarium last weekend I fell in love. Their appearance provides camouflage so they look like a seahorse crossed with some fabulous sea plant. How cool is this!?
We had the pleasure of working with Jesi Haack , Jessica Claire and Honey and Poppies on this shoot inspired by the book The Night Circus. I wanted to give you a close up look at the paper delights we created. From a pop-up invitation, to a program cover resembling an old book, we had a so much fun designing all the details. You can see more over on Green Wedding Shoes.
Have you guys read The Night Circus yet? I read it in preparation for the shoot and just fell in love with it. Would love to hear what you guys think!

I put together some inspirations for a fabulous New Year’s Eve bride I am working with right now. It’s such a festive time and the colors and celebratory vibe is really inspiring to work with.
Hope you all enjoyed your long weekend. After an emotionally trying week, I was very grateful to spend time with my family. We ended up doing quite a bit, so I thought I would share a few images from the weekend’s adventures.
The hubby and I managed to sneak out for a date night one night. From sunset cocktails, to fabulous mexican food, Laguna Beach trolley rides and fabulous gelato, the night was a success. All the stars seemed to align for us. Even though each place we went to was over crowded, and not a seat available, a kind person, or couple offered us a seat at each stop! It was magical for sure.
I somehow convinced my husband to go with me to the Flea Market (not his favorite stop truth be told). But he was a trooper, and there were a ton of treasures to be found.
From vintage Parisian letters, to old bottles, and gorgeous chandeliers, I was in heaven!
We literally had the most sublime pizza of all time from TJ’s Woodfire Pizza truck. It had burrata, Italian sausage & fennel pollen, and I swear it was the most delicious crust I have ever had, from a truck! Imagine that!? We sipped icey cold coconuts from the Fruit Shop too. Yum!
We finally took Piper to the Aquarium and it was such a fun time. Watching her get so excited with all the fish, sea lions, everything, was really fun.
What did you guys do for the long weekend!?
I snapped this shot of the fruits we ate during our weekly farmers market family picnic last week. Once I looked at the photo it made me want to steal this color palette. Wouldn’t this make the prettiest paper lovely?
I literally cannot get enough of these gorgeous wedding gowns. This vintage inspired, sometimes 1920′s feel is so gorgeous, elegant and could inspire an invitation suite all on it’s own.
