Sister love…

The last few weeks have been so special, spent getting to know our new little one. My oldest is 2 years 9 months and couldn’t be happier for her sister to finally be here. After witnessing the precious bond that my two daughters already have, I was inspired to put together a little story board of sweet moments. Here are a few shots I captured of my girls…

melting my heart, over and over again.


Sweet baby Mila

Finally and after many months of anticipation, our beautiful daughter has arrived. She shares the birthday of my late Father and came just in time for Mother’s Day. I’m still on cloud nine and enjoying every sweet moment with her. Blogging is still a priority of mine, but please bear with me over the next several weeks as I take time to spend with my family.

Check back again soon for party inspiration and more.



Posh Gifts ~ Washcloth Candy & Push Pops

 One of my favorite parts about being invited to a celebration is the gift giving, and any opportunity I have to personalize a gift and make it extra special I will.  Today with personalization on the brain, I created a few more special baby gifts which are available in my Etsy shop. All are inspired by sugary confections.

The first is a 4 piece baby washcloth gift set packaged to look like wrapped hard candy, accompanied by a pink and white chevron treat bag

The second is a 6-piece baby washcloth gift set, packaged in the nostalgic and trendy Push pop containers for a fun finishing touch.

I couldn’t think of a sweeter gift for a new baby!
