Today was a Good Day…

Hello lovelies!  This week marks a new chapter in my ever-changing life as a mom…a working mom!  Maternity leave is officially over and I am back at work.  The transition has been made MUCH easier thanks to our wonderful nanny, Lauren.  She snapped a few pictures of Sofia today which I couldn’t help but share…what a wonderful eye Lauren has.  See more of Sofia here and be sure to check out Lauren’s work here.

And as I return to work – the realization that my daily wardrobe of yoga pants and tees just won’t cut it is leaving me needing some new fashion inspiration…a few favorites I’ve rounded up from Pinterest (click image for original link.)

A great trench +  black skinnies

Lace + dark blues

I’m a little late coming around to the chalk party – but love the endless possibilities!  Personalize a mug, pot or anything else you can get your hands on…

Monday Play Time

If you’re needing a bit of a pick-me-up this Monday, check out this new-to-me color palette generator!  Found over the weekend through Creature Comforts, I’ve become officially obsessed as it feeds my love for all things color.

I can think of so many ways to use this great tool – to match a palette for a room, to build a mood board for an outfit, to plan a color theme for a party…oh the possibilities!!

I’ll be spending many a color-loving minutes on this lovely find…

Happy Monday!

Happy Spring!

Hello lovelies!  I’ve quite enjoyed taking a little bloggy break, but wanted to pop into today to share a few things I’m just loving for spring.

This is my favorite time of year…flowers blooming, grass greening and the best weather a girl who lives in Texas could hope for.  I just wish these darn wildfires and allergies would blow on away to leave us to enjoy our spring in peace!!

A Shot a Day (365 small moments)

I’m attempting to capture the small moments of my life in 2011.  One day at a time, one photo per day.  Just a few things that I see that make me smile, make me think or make me pause.  Do you have moments like those?
