“Here come the longest days, when diving boards turn men into boys, when canoes get dragged over gravel to the river, when backyard grills stay on slow cooking all afternoon, when grocery trips are made in swimsuits with wet hair for impulse watermelon purchases, and when the best kind of air conditioning is found on a hammock in the shade.” —quote found on @hattonhenry’s instagram
I love summer. It’s like the weekend of the whole year. We have already vacationed, broken out the sprinklers, spent full afternoons with our forearms sticky from aforementioned impulse watermelon purchases and stubbed our dirty toes countless tearful times. Just like when I was a kiddo myself, I still feel like I get a break for 3 whole months and should be riding my bike to the neighborhood pool every day with my friends.
PS This summery party invitation sums it up well!

“…I’m glad we’re husband and wife and I hope you continue to have many more birthdays and we continue to have many more years together. I sure do love you. I can’t believe you’re 50 years old and I’m 49.”
Happy birthday, Mom. I love you, and hope I can be as wonderful a mom to my kiddos as you are to me.
As a designer I love playing with color combinations. When I travel I’m always inspired by the color choices I find all around me. I’ve been to one of these places below, but I’m inspired by all three.
I flew to Los Angeles this past week as a designer and volunteer representing Tiny Prints, who launched their partnership with Baby2Baby. Baby2Baby is a non-profit organization that provides low-income children, ages zero to 12, with diapers, clothing and all the basic necessities that every child deserves.
Tiny Prints sponsored the Baby2Baby Mother’s Day Playdate, a magical morning full of fun for 40 children and relaxation for 40 moms.
