Baby Update: Gender Reveal

Monday, April 14, 2014

I promise not to overwhelm you with pregnancy updates, but I did want to share that we now know the sex of our baby!  I'm 18 weeks into our second pregnancy.

How Have I Been Feeling: Pretty great!   I was very sick throughout my first trimester and didn't have much of an online presence during those weeks, but I'm feeling wonderful now with lots of energy.

Other Symptoms: I still have a little bit of nausea here and there, but it's nothing compared to my first trimester.  Other than that, I'm having a little bit of back pain (that's to be expected) and LOVING the baby kicks I'm getting. 

We are thrilled to share that Chloe has a healthy little sister, who is growing right on track. We were wonderfully surprised to hear that we are having another girl! I can't wait to wash all of Chloe's clothes and buy a few new pieces for baby Charlotte -- yes, our little peanut's name will be Charlotte!
I saw this print months ago and knew it would be perfect for a girl nursery.
I am lucky enough to be friends with someone who works in the ultrasound department at our hospital. She did both of our first trimester screenings and told us the sex of our first baby. Another tech had done our anatomy scan and said she wouldn't try to guess the sex until our friend had come into the room. he was in the middle of checking for the baby's sex, but we had no idea what we were looking at on the screen. Making conversation, my friend said, "What does Chloe want?" and Papa Jumper said, "A sister named Charlotte or an iPad. There isn't a brother in her in mind!" She replied, "Well, what Chloe wants, Chloe gets!"

It was so shocking how she slipped the reveal into casual conversation, and it took us both a second for it to REALLY register. Then the tears came flowing. Knowing that we have a healthy daughter is such a wonderful feeling!

Thanks for reading my update!

she leaves a little sparkle print on Better Homes and Gardens

Friday, April 11, 2014

I'm shocked!  Imagine my surprise when a friend notified me this morning that Better Homes and Gardens shared my Sparkle print on Facebook.

This has definitely made my day, but I have to admit it would have been nice if they'd have credited me for the work!

10 color palettes you'll die for

Tuesday, March 18, 2014

We must have changed our color palette at least five times before we decided on a scheme of pink and gold for our wedding. Before that, green was a high contender and so were shades of blue. I've put together ten of my favorite color schemes for 2014 and I hope you like them as much as I do!

It took us a very long time to get here.  I've had a very rough first trimester, which has made blogging a little difficult.  I was sick with Chloe, but am even more sick this time around.  I've been sleeping a lot more than usual, too. I'm hoping to get back into blogging on a regular schedule soon!

Chloe is thrilled to be a big sister (for now!) and of course, my husband and I are over the moon excited.

Guys, my jaw dropped when my mom called to tell me a friend had seen my work in Pittsburgh Magazine.  This came as a total (happy!!) surprise to me on a snowy afternoon, and I've been on cloud nine ever since.


Tracy contacted me in 2011 about designing a custom suite for her summer 2012 wedding.  We worked closely together over the next few months, brainstorming and designing.  Bringing Tracy's vision to life was so thrilling.  Custom design truly is my passion!

Tracy, a high school English teacher, described her wedding vision as ethereal and inspired by her love for books. 

Her wedding suite was designed to look like an 18th century book.  Her 8 page program wedding ceremony program was side stitched and opened like a book.  Tying in with the wedding’s literary theme, guests enjoyed their dual entrée dinners at tables marked with the couple’s favorite love quote.
