ribbonsofred We spent part of the evening at the most charming little Christmas tree farm, for holiday minis with @erickareck!! Aria got to see llamas, chickens, donkeys, and roosters. I don't know what was better—the location, seeing a photo of Aria smiling on the back of the camera, or getting to snuggle with Ryan for 3-5 mins ALONE for a few solo photos! #BuddyTheElfNeedsToBabysit #ComeToCincinnati 2d

ribbonsofred Dressed our babe in my favorite little vintage nightgown. I can't believe we are already on the cusp of colder weather. It feels like just yesterday I was pregnant, in the heat of the summer, anticipating what our little girl would look like. Aria was cold this morning—so we snuggled in bed and let dada sleep in. 1mon

ribbonsofred Pulling props to start shooting my portfolio next week. I have so much design work to share! Being extremely sick for all 9 months of my pregnancy didn't allow me to get to a lot of my business goals this last year. If you ever get behind in your own goals, just remember this—STARTING IS PROGRESS. #Motivation #Design #Props #PropStyling #Trinkets #RORprops 1mon

ribbonsofred I've never been a morning person. I'm a creativity-strikes-at-midnight kind of girl. I'm used to being up until 3am and sleeping until I feel rested. Being a new mom blew that world up. I'm embracing the change, while hard, and have tried to get myself into a morning routine. Moms always seem to meander around the house with a cup of something—figured I should too! It's scientifically proven to wake you up, right? Right!? Cheers to all you early-rising, hardworking mamas, from my little Peanuts mug to yours! #NeverTooOldForSnoopy #EarlyRisersToast 1mon

ribbonsofred Hello, Hello! Did you like what I did there? This is my grandma's old telephone. The kind where you picked up the ear piece and an operator was magically on the other end. I moved it to my desk to motivate me this week because it's my first week back FULL TIME at Ribbons of Red since baby. I thought it might bring me some good mojo, as my business was inspired by my grandma, after all! #LetsDoThisPhotoshop #ShineDownOnMeGrandma #Inspiration #Antiques 1mon

ribbonsofred The weather was absolutely perfect today! I jumped at the chance to shoot Aria in her 1900's stroller this evening. She's wearing the dress that came from my grandma who passed. (Story and dress further back in my IG stream—if you're curious of the story!) Words can't express how much this photo, and the others I shot tonight, mean to me! 1mon

ribbonsofred I bought a wilted, dying succulent today for $2. I felt sorry for him. (Yes, seriously.) I watered him and placed him in the sun. I hope I can save him, so he can sit proudly in my office! :) #BringTheOutdoorsIn #VSCOcam #Macro #GreenThumbKinda 2mon

ribbonsofred Vintage dress. Vintage booties. Victorian era stroller. My girl. Now, if mama (me!) could just learn how to make the light dance in my camera—we'd be set. But hey, everyone has to start somewhere! 3mon

ribbonsofred When I was pregnant, I came across this beautiful baby ring from the 1900's. I fell absolutely in love with it, but I didn't buy it. I figured I was nesting a little too much, blamed it on hormones, and left it for someone else to find.

After Aria was born, I couldn't stop thinking about the ring. I wished so badly I had bought it to commemorate her—my first child. Since I couldn't carry her around anymore, I thought maybe it would be nice to carry something else. I went searching for it after I recovered, expecting it to be gone, but there it was—waiting for me!

I can't wait to thread an equally old chain through it and wear it around my neck. One day when Aria is grown, perhaps I'll pass it on to her.

ribbonsofred Today would have been my grandma's 94th birthday. As you all probably know by now, I named my business after her. While she's been gone a while, this year her loss hit pretty hard. I wish so badly she could meet our first born, Aria. My cousin found this vintage dress in her house when she passed. Today, she gave it to me, after all this time—on my grandma's birthday. It wasn't planned; it just sort of happened like that. On the dress are flamingos. Flamingos are a HUGE deal to my husband and I. We were married at the Flamingo in Las Vegas and bought Aria lots of flamingo-themed outfits before her arrival. While Flamingos are trendy these days (lucky us!), they sure weren't something commonly found in the "old days". I can't believe this dress found its way to me, on this day of all days, on this year of all years, adorn with two lovely flamingos.

Happy Birthday, grandma.
It's just like you to give me a gift, on your birthday.

ribbonsofred My guy. We shared a quiet family moment in this room that I didn't want to forget—so I asked to take his photo so I can always remember. 3mon

ribbonsofred 6 Days vs. 1 Month

Aria hit one month yesterday! I can't believe it. I swore she was still kinda the same size as she was at birth. The progress photo tells a different tale!
