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!
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.
I just got my maternity photos back from the amazing Braedon Photography and I am blown away! Here is peek at the shoot along with some Friday Fun. Happy Halloween Friends!
Today’s inspiration to-go image is the cover of the latest Maker Quarterly from Mohawk paper. The colors and pattern are so perfect. It’s a great issue too, you should check it out. Also I thought I would throw in some Halloween inspired fun as we get ready for Halloween next week!!
So I must preface by saying I also wish it was cold enough to do this, but here goes. My latest installment of Wish I was. Think warm cocktails, faux fur and luxe fire places. Completely obsessed with these faux furs from West Elm by the way. How cool are they!?
This inspiration t0-go pic is of Piper borrowing my flower crown I wore for my baby shower last weekend. She was so excited when I came home wearing it, and asked if she could wear it. So cute!!
Today’s inspiration to-go image is a snapshot of a custom invite we are working on right now. I just love the fun textural qualities of the different materials. A seagrass backer, a wax seal, Japanese rice paper and wax twine. And don’t forget the hand torn paper with a deep letterpress impression…Sigh…
With our CSA basket overflowing with apples, as we enter apple season, I was inspired to try something new for our breakfast smoothies. This was a huge hit with the whole family. It’s packed with protein and full of apple pie flavors. This is definitely my new favorite smoothie combo. Use the milk of your choice to make it your own. Enjoy!
Today’s inspiration to-go image is a sampling of crib bedding I am considering for the nursery. These swatches are from Restoration Hardware and they are so adorable I can’t even stand it!
Today’s inspiration to-go post is a shot of Piper’s new skirt. I love the ethereal quality of the shimmer and the tulle. Plus I am completely obsessed with this minty shade.
