my little (and big zoolander-esque) dali

this past weekend we took full advantage of the smithsonian's free museum weekend, went to the high and enjoyed the dali exhibit (we also enjoyed a little play time too)!

when i was a little girl, i had the most stylish pair of gigantic gray elephant slippers with big squeaky noses; my dog would attack them as i walked. i truly had the hardest time parting with them once my feet grew. as a small boy, my brother-in-law called elephants, "ephlets"; so dear. my daughter, now 2.5, tends to over do it a bit and pronounces elephant as, "eL-Lee-phunts" all the while overemphasizing that "l" and rolling her tongue for even more effect.

my memories of the past and those more recent have been brought to and remain at the forefront of my mind as i keep coming across truly wonderful, modern takes on the elephant in every day design. 

what is it that makes these lovely creatures and their sweet nothings so darn endearing?

kasey + kurt's wedding invitations

i'm so excited to finally be able to share the invitations i put together for kasey and kurt's beachside wedding! we've been working together the past couple months and the invites are now safe, secure and in each recipient's hand. a subtle sand dollar reflects the ceremony location while a cobalt + kelly green grosgrain ribbon ties it all together...

inspired :: la marquise des anges

i have a slight obsession with white tees. seriously; i have a whole drawer full. i'm always on the lookout for the next addition and got terribly excited when i came across the la marquise des anges etsy store (found via elephantine). the perfect combination of simple, casual and chic. dress 'em up or down; my favorites are below...

to infinity and beyond

below is a little glimpse of the lovely i put together for my husband for our eight year anniversary. the number eight and infinity symbol, coupled with buzz lightyear's phrase, "to infinity and beyond," just came together too perfectly...


i strategically placed little mini notes tucked inside glassine envelopes (seen above, upper right corner) throughout his day to let him know how much i love and appreciate him. this anniversary truly marks 15 years together - we are high school sweethearts. and, you know what? he STILL gives me the goosebumps ;)


still wondering where buzz lightyear comes in to all of this? hop on over here; we just can't get enough of buzz in our household.
