ribbonsofred Spotted this little wooden train on our first full day in Whistler. It came with an eagle, moose, bear, and several cabooses. I love how it looks in her nursery! While I hope to instill the travel bug within Aria, for now, may this train be a constant reminder to never leave my baby for that long ever again! Ha ha ha! ️-= 2d

ribbonsofred I miss this view, but I missed my family more! Home is certainly where the heart is. After traveling for 24 hours without any sleep—I've successfully slept the day away with my baby on my chest! 3d
  •   jewelimage I'm so glad to hear that Renee. I'm sure that baby was happy to get her mama back. 3d

ribbonsofred Last morning in Whistler, before the long trek back to Cincinnati! What a crazy awesome trip.

To those who reached out to me while I was here—you sure know how to make a gal feel welcome. I definitely did not expect that! I truly loved meeting each and every one of you here! #NAPCPRetreat

ribbonsofred Went out to get the mail and stumbled upon two things—a gorgeous winter sunset and silence. The lack of sound jarred me. I had completely forgot what it was like to hear absolutely nothing, so I stood out there for a moment to enjoy it. 2w

ribbonsofred Photographing design work for my portfolio this weekend. I can't wait to hang these "puppies" on my antique display and see how they look!

This logo was created for #PinkRibbonPuppies, a non-profit that photographs rescue dogs in the CUTEST pink settings, to raise money (and awareness) for breast cancer! Two things very near and dear to my heart!

ribbonsofred It's the first work day of 2015! Naturally, I'm thinking of this lovely lady—my grandma! For those of you who don't know, Ribbons of Red is named after her. I feel so fortunate to embark on my 8th year in business. Every year I promise I'll do things differently—this year, I really am! #Teaser #MoreToCome #QueueBasedSystem #NewPricing 3w

ribbonsofred Being sore after taking a CPR class is what I call—A WAKE UP CALL, my friends! While I knew I had lost a lot of muscle from vomiting 15-30 times daily (my entire pregnancy), I really had NO CLUE, just how much core strength I lost. Womp, womp!

Rather than pouting, it's time to get to work! I'm starting my morning off right with organic cereal and my @dashingdish cookbook! Soda, you're not welcome 'round here no mo'.

  •   private_julie_miller But look at that picture! Is that Mac and cheese? 3w
  •   ribbonsofred @jewelimage It is! It's a cookbook off some of the most loved/cravable foods (like burgers, pizza, Mac n Cheese) made healthy and clean!! I highly recommend it!!! 3w
  •   erinvey Can I interest you in some pilates? It's done miracles for my core! 3w
  •   dashingdish Woo hoo!!! Get it girl! 3w
  •   ribbonsofred @erinvey Absolutely! Is there a class you attend or a DVD you do a home? 3w
  •   erinvey Yes! Try the free trial of www.pilatesanytime.com and do the 10 course introductory series by Monica Wilson. I've been doing her stuff for 11 months now. I like it because it's kind on your body and you can do it anywhere. 3w
  •   ribbonsofred @erinvey You're the best!! 3w

ribbonsofred Today has been crazy emotional for me. I can't believe there's only a handful of hours left in my daughter's birth year.

2014 will always be remembered for two things! First and foremost, the year @ryanswigert and I met our first born. However, a close second is when we outran a pack of coyotes during our maternity session in Vegas! I had no idea I could move that fast pregnant. 'Amiright, @nicholeburnett?!
4w
  •   spellingbee (1) Yay! (2) What!? 4w
  •   ribbonsofred @spellingbee True story. Lived to tell the tale! 4w
  •   thejohnawesome Thanks for the reminder of the coyotes!!! Hahaha 4w
  •   nicholeburnett Hahaha!!! I had no idea I could run that fast pregnant nor did I realize I'd totally ditch my friends at the sight of the wild pack! At least I yelled "COYOTES" as I left you in the dust! 4w

ribbonsofred I am a treasure hunter at heart. I love finding old, forgotten things and giving them new life.

As a new mom, hunting for unique toys is my latest obsession. I found these cute wooden animals in back October, and I knew they'd be perfect for Christmas. All they needed was a light cleaning. I can't wait for Aria to open them. Watch out for that pesky giraffe—he loves to photobomb!! 🐊

ribbonsofred Took advantage of the warm-ish weather today and went on a quick stroller ride. It's gotten too cold, too quick here in Cincinnati, and cabin fever has already set in with the dogs. I think it did everyone good to get out and enjoy the winter air! 2mon
