Admittedly, I have the best job in the world. I spend my days scouring the internet for beautiful things, walking the streets of Boston waiting to be inspired, roaming the aisles of my favorite little bookshop…all day, dreaming about weddings. On any given Tuesday, you might find me on my sofa, hovering over my laptop creating inspiration boards and color palettes, constantly getting sidetracked by all of the beautiful sites I’ve found along the way. Yes, I have a pretty killer job.

And yet, like most things in life, the path to get here has been a long and winding road. With big dreams and brief detours (including a stop at a public relations firm followed by a longer stay at a hedge fund), I jumped head first into the wedding industry, launching a line of wedding invitations called Abby Jean. After three years of blood, sweat and tears (literally) I sold my wonderful little company to Fontaine Maury who could take the brand on to bigger and better things.

As a way to stay connected to my industry, and continue to challenge myself creatively, I started Style Me Pretty….a chic blog for the style obsessed bride. As a blogger, I am forever in search of inspiration…whether it’s my grandfather’s sketches or my niece’s paintings, the perfect pair of ballet flats or a blush colored peony. There are no boundaries for inspiration just as there are no boundaries when it comes to Style Me Pretty.

Again, I have a pretty amazing job.

Paperbag Princess 2nd Birthday

My daughter is turning 6 in a few months. And her favorite books are Barbie and My Little Pony and other crazy girly, sort of flimsy stories that she can tote around with her.

Newport Beach Home Tour

And when we spotted Erin Graber's Newport Beach, we knew we had hit the nail on the head. Just make sure to spend some time in the galleries - with photos by the lovely Esther Sun - as there are so many more cool...
