Heart Full of Mom

I have been a huge fan of Hoot and Heart for sometime and what perfect pictures to post going into this beautiful Mother's Day weekend! I think it has rained almost every day the last month in NYC so these pictures have a bit of mood in them which I love.

This weekend is big for Patrick and me - our first wedding anniversary and my first Mother's Day! I can't believe how much has happened in the last year - we have so much to be grateful for! It is crazy how fast time goes - it seems like yesterday that we were in Jamaica.

I hope you all have an amazing Mother's Day weekend, hopefully you can all hug your mom if not send her lots of love! I have been incredibly lucky this last month - my mom was here in Brooklyn helping me transition into motherhood. Her and my Dad rented an apartment down the street and I have to say it was so much fun having them here with us. My Dad took off early (city life wasn't his thing) but my mom just left this last Wednesday. It was sad to say goodbye - but time to be our little family of three. One thing is for sure - moms are the best!!!

Have a beautiful and lovely weekend!!!

How great are these tags from Popptags? Humor combined with sophisticated design? I like it! The top two tags sum up my relationship with wine pretty well!

Jenna & Jon at The Bride's Guide!

I am sure by now most of you have seen some of the amazing details of Jenna's (lovely and talented calligrapher) wedding on 100 Layer Cake. Well since last week, Jenna and her fiance Jon have been posting their daily pre-wedding adventures and jitters on Martha Stewart's The Bride's Guide. I have known Jenna for almost the last 10 years and their wedding is going to be such a true reflection of the awesome and insanely creative couple that they are. It has been so much fun to hear (and be a part of) all of the little and big details that will be part of their wedding day. I designed their wedding invitations, which was a huge honor for me considering Jenna's talents in the visual department! Their invitation details are under wraps as their wedding will be featured in an issue of MS Weddings sometime next year! Jenna and Jon have truly made their wedding a collaborative effort amongst their friends and family. So check out their daily ventures over at Martha for the next 11 days - it will surely make you smile at the excitement they both share for their wedding day.
