Some inspiration for your Wednesday

Recently, I came across this quote by Kerouac, and it really struck a chord. The idea of living a life of adventure, blessing others, and living without regrets or apologies is a powerful one.

I hope this brings a little inspiration to your day.

Brave

This song always makes me smile. I am a sucker for a good motivational tune, and I’m not afraid to admit it. What are you doing today that brings out your brave side?

For the tough days

Sometimes I have to remind myself not to take on other people’s energy as my own.

Do you ever have that struggle?

You know how it can be when someone is in a bad mood and they take it out on you, or office politics and gossip start to weigh you down. When I start to feel myself going down the rabbit hole and absorbing some of that negativity, I like to tell myself “Not my circus; not my monkeys.” It’s a gentle reminder to let it go.

I hope this little monkey brightens your day and reminds you that you don’t have to carry around other people’s monkeys.

Are you living wild and free?

Do you feel like you’re living your most wild & free life? Lately, I’ve been seeing lots of reminders around me that life is precious and short. It makes me want to reevaluate my life and think about making a bucket list of adventures and experiences to have during my lifetime.

One of my biggest joys is traveling, and I would love to go to Antarctica. What is an item on your bucket list? Spill the beans!

Those last few days of summer

While it’s technically fall, we’re experiencing those last few hot days of summer weather here in the Bay Area. My sweaters and boots will have to stay packed away for a few more weeks because it’s too toasty for them right now!

Whenever there are warm days in San Francisco, people get outside as much as possible and soak up the sun. The sailboats fill the bay, and it feels just a little bit like a celebration.

If you’ve never been to San Francisco, it’s a destination worth exploring. Don’t forget to hop across the Bay Bridge and check out Oakland too! On days when San Francisco is cold and foggy, Oakland often has perfect, sunny weather. (Shhhh . . . don’t tell anyone!)

Today we’ll love on the Golden Gate Bridge a little bit with this quote poster. Feel free to pin and share! (photo by Lucas Theis)

Announcing: Nursery Art Prints!

This is a project that has been in the works for quite some time, and I’m pleased to share that nursery art prints are now trickling into the Green Quince shop! So many of my wonderful wedding clients have gone on to expand their families and have little ones, so this seems like a natural next step for Green Quince as well. Today, two prints went up in the shop, and additional designs will be added in the coming weeks.

If you would like something custom designed just for you and your little one’s nursery, I am also taking on a limited number of custom design projects for the fall. Please inquire if you are interested.

Have a great day!

A quote poster to brighten your day

Last week I asked my Facebook fans to share their favorite quotes so I could create a couple of fun typographical posters based on their quotes. Here is the first one, in two different versions. Which version is your favorite?

Don’t know about you, but I’ll be humming this song all day!
