January 12, 2015

Can it be that a year has passed already? I have heard the experience of parenthood described as being long days and short years. I think that sums it up beautifully. When my little is up at 5:00 revved up and ready to go, the moment he falls asleep comes with a deep breath and […]

{Heirloom tomato tartlet} So I love food. Planing a party menu is often one of my favorite things; looking for recipes and deciding if they fit together.

{joint birthday party} paperless invites

October 10, 2014

I answered with an emphatic yes when my friend Kristin asked if I would take a couple pictures of her family for their birthday invitation. Her idea was adorable; hold up a sign with the equation of their ages added together. It was their 75th birthday as a family after all. Witty and a winning […]

{backyard movie night} menu

September 5, 2014

[Spicy Peach Lemonade from Heather Christo] Food has been on my mind, especially in thinking about the menu for our upcoming movie night. Awhile back, while wandering the Ferry Building Farmers Market, I noticed a booth dedicated to sauerkraut. Since then I have wanted to do a menu featuring a gourmet hot dog bar. Well it’s happening […]

{backyard movie night} printable invite

August 29, 2014

Put together triangles and monochromatic colors and you have a invitation I’m going to love. When I sat down to design this invite I wasn’t sure what I was going to end up with.
