Q: WHAT COLOR IS INSPIRING YOU THIS SPRING?
A: I’m loving all things rose-colored this spring. Our girl has the roundest, most rosy cheeks that just beg to be kissed and smooched and snuggled. I’ve never been a pink girl before having a daughter and figured her wardrobe would be all neutrals like mine... but there’s just something about a baby girl in pink that kills me!

Q: WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE WILDFLOWER?
A: The bleeding heart is always at the top of this list. I don’t know if I’ve seen it in the wild, but I’ve planted it in my yard. The detail and intricacy of the tiny, hanging blossoms is mind blowing. Whenever something from nature is so innately, wildly beautiful, I can’t help but to feel well loved and looked over.
