While we were in California we drove to San Diego on Mother’s Day to go to church and walk around the temple grounds. I’ve been wanting to see this temple in person since I was a little girl (I used to think it was Cinderella’s castle) and it was so special to be able to experience it for the first time with my little family. It’s even more stunning in person!!

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!
