Being a mom is one of the biggest challenges I have ever faced. But it is also the biggest gift I have ever been given. I am guaranteed to laugh every day because of my little Piper girl. I wish you all a wonderful Mother’s Day! To my mother and grandmother, Happy Mother’s day to the most wonderful women I know. xoxo

With mother’s day this weekend I thought I would share one of my favorite Mommy sites. In their own words The Glow is “a glimpse into the world of inspiring and fashionable moms.” I really cannot get enough of this site. Not only do they feature fabulous stylish amazing moms & babes through gorgeous photography but their candid comments are so inspiring, funny, and amazing!

Ok well for those of you that follow me on twitter, you have heard me mention an exciting new project yet to be revealed. Well it’s time for the big reveal…I am hosting the very first Food to Love workshop next weekend with more to come. The class filled up so fast, and so many fabulous sponsors were so generous and supportive, I was slightly overwhelmed. Remember when I mentioned the idea casually in this post? Well it has become a reality! The idea is to educate, listen and learn from each other while gaining the knowledge needed to be able to feed your family good, healthy, fabulous food. From struggles to triumphs, revelations to recipes, we will cover it. The amazing sponsors include Whole Foods, On to Baby, Scout Books, Wean Green, Good Seeds, The Stitch Farm and Wiley Valentine! More on them to follow…So much to share!
My house was a full on test kitchen this past weekend. Interested in learning more about Food to Love workshops? Drop me an email and I will be sure to keep you in the loop!

Balloons are taking center stage lately in weddings, parties, engagement shoots. You name it. I love this fresh new take on an old school decoration.
Sabrina from Hello Lucky created a balloon wall with different lengths of strings!

As I continue research for my new project (to be revealed soon!) we found ourselves planting a family garden on earth day. It was so much fun, and I love the idea that we are growing our own food. We planted vegetables, herbs, fruits! We made sure to include Piper in the entire process, explaining to her what we were doing, letting her help pick out what to plant. It’s such a fun activity, and something that we tend to as a family each day!
My husband built the box we used for our box garden. We are beginners at this whole gardening thing, so we are sort of learning as we go.
It took Piper a minute to get into it, but before long she was digging in the dirt, and having fun with Daddy.
This is such a fun and easy activity to do as a family. It teaches your children where our food really comes from, and may even get them to eat their veggies with more enthusiasm! Give it a try. I would love to hear about your family gardens!
