about me.

Hello! I'm Alison, and this piece of cyberspace has been a wonderful creative outlet for me since I fell in love with blogs planning our 2009 wedding. Since then, my husband, Eddie, and I welcomed two angel babes to this world, Mari and Jenna, both of whom have inspired this journey of a blog.
I post from our tiny beach house in Manhattan Beach, Calif. By day, I'm a publicist in the events industry, and this site feeds my creative energy for entertainingcookinghome decorall things paperDIY projects and in the last two years, babiesparenting + pregnancy.

In a nutshell, I love a good, intimate party, spending time in the kitchen and sharing a meal with my family. I obsess over things like fonts, color and writing utensils. I live for thoughtful, simple details and when I'm not blogging here, I'm sharing little snippets of inspiration on my Instagram feed.

If you're new here, welcome. To get to know me better, my very first post is a good place to start.

On photography.
I take all my own photos, with the rare exception of a few amazing photographers who have been featured on this blog, including Amy + Stuart and Jenna Beth Photography. In the last couple of years, I've started some formal photography basic training with Nicole's Classes.

If I feature a photo that's not by yours truly, I list a credit and link to the original source. If you'd like to use one of my photos, I just ask that you do the same.

Have more questions? Planning a party - dinner, birthday or otherwise - and need some inspiration?
Let's chat.
