  75. Iida says:

    I love this blog post! I came here to read the blog again :) Thanks for sharing. Such beautiful and atmospheric pictures, and I love how you have Isla’s special day recorded in the pictures.

    I am so pleased to see you incorporate matters of the gospel in your fashion blog, like the baby blessing now. I am your new reader from Finland. In Europe, the Church is still relatively small, so there are many people who don’t know any Mormons personally. I’m sure that you just naturally bringing up things like having worn an outfit for church on Sunday is something that makes a few people here and there find out a few facts about our religion.

  76. Heather says:

    I just want to say that you have the most beautiful family and absolutely, the cutest baby. I love reading your blog posts every day. I am always inspired by your wardrobe and I wish I could be as stylish as you. Thank you so much for your posts! Keep up the great work!

  77. Michelle says:

    SO beautiful!!!!!!

  78. I love all the beautiful flowers and of course your Valentinos!
    Your hair also looks beautiful in these pictures! Would love to know how you keep those curls all day!

    I must ask, where did you purchase your chaise? I love how big it is and looks so comfy for snuggles with your little one!!!

In September of 2011 I created Pink Peonies as a place to document the things I loved. Since then, it has become a creative outlet where I share my personal style though daily outfits, beauty tips, home style and much more!

Ever since I was a little girl I've dreamed of creating my own line. After countless hours of working towards that dream, I've finally launched my first collection!

It's full of classic, feminine and romantic pieces that you'll keep in your closet for years to come and wear over and over again!
