• Inspired by Color Trends

     I love color, don’t you?  And no one has their pulse on color like pantone.  I thought I’d share pantone’s color trends for spring 2013, and I’ll start sharing some inspiration boards built around my favorites (and yours, if you tell me which that is!)
    I’m in love with so many of these shades!  The vibrant shades like poppy, emerald, and monaco blue are gorgeous, and the nectarine and grayed jade are really lovely.  And lemon zest?  I think you know where this is going…
    A great way to get inspired for your wedding is to start with color.  If pantone’s shades aren’t floating your color boat, paper source’s palette is also full of inspiration.  Plus, for you DIY brides, matching your palette to their shades helps to have exact matches for any paper supplies you’ll buy for your wedding stationery.
    And how fun is this colorscope,which tells you about your personality based on the color you choose.  You can download your own here.
    You know another place I get tons of color inspiration?  The paint chip display at the local hardware/home improvement store.  I’ve always loved admiring the different colors and swiping paint chips to take home.
    These are great ways to get inspired for interior design, room decor, wardrobe choices, and DIY projects as well!

       When your shades and your shirt are meant to be  #charlesdashiell  On weekends, we nurse, cuddle, and nap together and it is my favorite. With the other boys I was always trying to get stuff done while they were napping. Since this is my last baby, I'm trying to really soak up all the moments I can -- one day I'll have plenty of time to get stuff done. For now I'll just be a hot mess that made the most of this baby time. Whenever I get a bit anxious about not getting things done, I re-read my favorite poem about motherhood: Mother, oh mother, come shake out your cloth! Empty the dustpan, poison the moth, Hang out the washing and butter the bread, Sew on a button and make up a bed. Where is the mother whose house is so shocking? She's up in the nursery, blissfully rocking! Oh, I've grown as shiftless as Little Boy Blue (Lullaby, rockaby, lullaby, loo). Dishes are waiting and bills are past due (Pat-a-cake, darling, and peek, peekaboo). The shopping's not done and there's nothing for stew And out in the yard there's a hullabaloo But I'm playing Kanga and this is my Roo. Look! Aren't her eyes the most wonderful hue? (Lullaby, rockaby, lullaby loo.) Oh, cleaning and scrubbing will wait till tomorrow, But children grow up, as I've learned to my sorrow. So quiet down, cobwebs. Dust, go to sleep. I'm rocking my baby. Babies don't keep. Song for a Fifth Child By Ruth Hulburt Hamilton #battlefieldmotherhood #mommaandquincyselfies
