PNW Baby Shower

PACIFIC NW BABY INVITE

Last Saturday there was a little baby shower celebration for our dear friend {Sabrina}.  {Sabrina} is having a little boy in May. A few girls decided to throw her a very small baby shower with a Pacific Northwest (PNW) theme. The location was perfect – Lot 3 in Bellevue. Think hipster plaid, mason jars, comfort food, eclectic flowers, twine, mustaches, and coffee beans.  Here is a glimpse of the baby festivities…

2014

Hello. Happy New Year’s Eve Eve. 2014 is almost over.  I would give this year a 7 1/2 out of 10.  That’s not too bad and we can even round-up.  It was a year full of experiences, friendships {good ones too}, love, loss, growth, and strength.  I learned to “be in the moment” and “be present” more. Time is such a valuable thing. I cherish the time with my family and friends and realize that it takes time to heal and grow. I’ve enjoyed sharing a glimpse of my style and life with you. Thank you for reading all the sparkle. Here is a glimpse of the most popular posts for 2014…

Last Fling Before the Ring.

Last Fling Before the RIng

In Lieu of my weekly {Week in Pictures} I decided to dedicate Sunday’s post to my friend {Sara}. Last weekend we celebrated her Bachelorette Party – Last Fling Before the Ring. I’m so very excited for her wedding this month.  Months ago I took photos for her Save the Dates {See blog post }.  She looked so beautiful the night of her bachelorette party. Her dress was sequined and sparkly – she was the perfect bachelorette. Here is a glimpse of our night…

Skirts Ahoy

Skirts AhoyYesterday was the perfect day for a night boat cruise.  I remember a year ago around this time, designers at my firm gathered together for a happy hour cruise around Seattle’s Lake Union. {See blog post 7 Knots} My favorite furniture/fabric rep and personal friend Esther Du Graf invited designers from my firm for a dinner and drinks cruise hosted by herself, husband William and beautiful daughter Isabella. It was absolutely amazing – a perfect Summer night!  We boarded the ESTHER WILLIAMS {a combination of her name and her husbands name + nod to famous American actress and swimmer Esther Williams of the 1950’s}. Their yacht is absolutely stunning – a 1956 fifty-four foot Chris Craft – so classic and beautiful. Here is a glimpse of our summer night…
