A Serendipitous Adventure

It's so amazing how beautiful this world is. I am thankful everyday for my five senses and the beautiful things God created for us to enjoy. 

There is so much to see, I sometimes wish life would just slow down. I want to take it all in and capture every moment. I had the chance to visit the Chicago Art Institute this past week for a work event and had the pleasure of stumbling across this beautiful staircase. You see, my background is in architect so I am constantly in awe of the built environment. The little details, form+function, ornamentation all the little things most people look past. More importantly I love the use of texture and materials, especially concrete and metals.  

As I sat in this light filled box glancing at this sinuous staircase I couldn't help but be inspired. How could a staircase inspire me?  It's a feeling I can't describe, it's ethereal which seems like an oxymoron since this staircase is made out of concrete and stone. But it's beautiful and perfect and my new happy place. What in this world inspires you? 

Happy weekend friends, take sometime to connect to the beautiful things in life and spend a little less time with technology and social media.

Urban Crowns

Can I admit something to you? I am a horrible blogger. Time is never on my side!!!

But I am happy to share this lovely Urban Crowns shoot featured on Grey Likes this past summer. It was such a pleasure to work with the super sweet and talented Kate Weinstein. She is such a sweetheart and I'm happy to call her my friend. Her photography is simply gorgeous. Also included is some lovely cake florals by Tiffany at A Splendid Occasion. The stunning model featured is Chelsea Smith.

The invite suite I created utilized soft, romantic and feminine elements. Who doesn't love some delicately wrapped Frou Frou Chic ribbon? Go check out more here and thanks Grey Likes for the feature.

Fig, Honey & Goat Cheese Galette

I have to let you friends know something. I love sweets! I love to try new desserts and I love is always so inspiring. I found this delicious Fig, Honey and Goat Cheese Galette recipe via Kitchen Confidante and I had to try! My only variation to the recipe was that I used whole wheat pastry flour in lieu of all-purpose flour. Of course no presentation is complete without some calligraphy. Enjoy!!!!

8x10 print / Beautiful

It's here friends! My true labor of first print available in my etsy shop. It's an 8x10 Beautiful print.

This print is inspired by the words at Ecclesiastes 3:11 "He has made everything beautiful...He has even out eternity in their heart."

Our world is a beautiful place, there is so much beauty every where...I'm truly thankful for this life and the beautiful things in it.

Delicate White on Gray Envelope Calligraphy

This envelope suite was something special. It's a true statement of practice. Its me perfecting my craft and establishing my brand. I love the delicate, sinuous lines. Feminine and romantic. I wish this suite could be photographed in film from Clary Photo or Jose Villa, what a dream.  Add vintage stamps and have something pretty special.
