March Around The Web

March has come to a close and I am fully ready to usher in warmer Spring weather, but not before recapping an eventful month! This month began with one last snowstorm the weekend we celebrated my friend Laura’s birthday, I traveled to Nashville to celebrate my cousin Liesel’s bachelorette & spent a few extra days there with my family, spent a siblings weekend in KC with Dale’s family, and had a crazy month at work filled with work on Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, Christmas & Easter product! My favorite find this month was Victoria’s recap of her favorite interior paintings. The one below is entitled The Pink Room by Karen Kilimnik:

  • I found this roundup of wedding trends super interesting. Even though I’m already married I love staying up on the latest wedding decor for work!

  • Australia has never been at the top of my travel wish list, but Mackenzie’s recap may have added it to my always growing list.

  • Now that I know my neighborhood celebrates St. Patrick’s Day in a big way these might have to be on the list to make for a parade party next year!

  • A few recent Nordstorm purchases for the transition to Spring: this Madewell Shirt and Sam Edelman Loafers. Fingers crossed both fit when they arrive!

  • At the end of April we are headed to California! This guide has been helping us plan our road trip from San Francisco to LA

  • Last weekend Dale and I had a lovely dinner at the recently re-opened Ragazza! If you are in KC I would definitely recommend — especially the spaghetti and meatballs.

  • Still obsessed with Jamie’s photographs and her journey to motherhood is spectacular.

  • Not in the budget, but these earrings are bold and dramatic.

Happy Spring!


Nashville Part One

This week I was able to spend a couple days in Nashville! The trip started with a few days celebrating my cousin’s bachelorette and then I met my family for a few days to explore the city. Some of our favorite stops were doughnuts from Five Daughters Bakery, live music at Tootsie’s and Honky Tonk Central on Broadway, lunch at Acme Farms + Kitchen, and a walk through Frist Art Museum. We also grabbed coffee at The Loading Dock, dinner at Whisky Kitchen and Bar Taco. We also stopped by the Country Music Hall of Fame! Here are a few of my favorite photos from our first day:

#FontsMadeByWomen — Lila Symons at TypeCon2018

I’m so excited to share my friend Lila Symons’ talk from TypeCon2018! I was honored that she choose to talk about our collaboration on her font Fieldsmith as one of the #FontsMadeByWomen she has worked on during her time at Hallmark. I really am constantly inspired by the talented women I work with, including Lila!
