Today’s inspiration to-go image is a snapshot of one of the paintings I worked on while pretending to be a kid again. Miss Piper and I played with acrylics the other weekend, and it was so therapeutic. Just playing with colors and textures, with no agenda, just to relax and have fun. You should try it!!
I have been putting together some inspirations for a bride recently and I have dubbed her my “Delicate Glam” bride. Here are some of my favorite inspirations for her…
This perfectly reflects where I wish I was at this very moment…sigh…
Here is another quick tip on how to get your kids to eat what you want them to eat. Tip #103, make it a “Build Your Own Bowl” style. The cool thing about this is that you can do this which just about anything. Build your own southwestern rice bowls, build your own Asian noodle bowls, sweet potato bowls, the possibilities are endless. I think part of what makes this work is that it gives your kids the power to choose what they are eating so be sure that the options are full of things you want them to eat. This has been working so great with Piper, so we make just about everything like this. If not a bowl, at least we offer some toppings to whatever we are eating, so she can choose her own toppings. Works like a charm.
I thought I would share Piper’s Valentine’s cards that we made this year. There are 3 different versions and then she will decorate the back and the envelopes. I love the tiny size! Wishing you all a fabulous Valentine’s Day this weekend! xoxo
My Valentine’s day dreams consist of a beautifully unmade bed, and gorgeous champagne cocktails infused with rose syrup…what?
I recently discovered that the more Piper is involved in creating our meals the more she will enjoy them. So the other day we did “Roll your own spring rolls” together. She had the best time choosing her own fillings and rolling her own rolls all on her own. I love these, they make a great lunch or dinner, and the “roll your own” philosophy allows your child to make choices about their food, while still getting them to eat what you want them to eat. Here are the super easy instructions…let me know if you try them!
We had the pleasure of collaborating with the amazing ladies of Imoni events on this southwestern chic wedding shoot featuring Lauren Conrad’s bridesmaid dress line. We had so much fun creating the custom copper foil paper pieces and dreaming up fabulous details with this dream team. Be sure to check out the full feature over on Green Wedding Shoes.
Yay! First mom monday since I have returned from maternity leave. So excited to be back at it. Let’s talk about a few of my favorite things. These are things I truly can’t live without, and ended up being some of my all time favorite baby things for miss Greyson. What are your favorite things? Am I missing out on something amazing?
Let’s talk diapers…the honest diapers are amazing and I LOVE that I get to choose from all those fun patterns. Seriously its the little things, right!? Also, you know how shoes for babies are pretty much a joke? I mean let’s be real, they just fall right off sometimes before you even leave the room. Well these Toms have a velcro strap that you can use to tighten them, and they stay on amazingly well, plus they are super adorable and they come in matching adult sizes too! That swan head for Greyson’s nursery is the perfect finishing touch. The stroller is amazing…she sleeps in it wherever we go. Plus it’s light weight for a full blown stroller, and it’s cute! Lastly the bamboo Aden + Anais swaddle blankets. Truth be told I don’t use them to swaddle her, but they make the perfect blankets. Also they double as a scarf and then perfect to breastfeed discreetly if that’s your thing. Enjoy!!

Well I am just getting back in the swing of things, returning from 3 months of maternity leave. There are such mixed feelings about going back to work especially as a business owner, since Wiley Valentine is my other baby. But most of all I am super grateful to have the flexibility to work in the office some days, at home others, and bring Greyson with me when I am in the office. As I flood my camera with photos of my two princesses, as well as healthy recipes and all things kids and family, I decided to start a new instagram account, PiperGreyLife, for those that wanted a bit more of that. You can follow along here.
