thanksgiving greetings & gratitude…


a quote by: William Arthur Ward

“Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.”

so thankful to each and every person in my life for making me feel gratitude on a daily basis… my husband, my pup, my family, my friends, my yoga instructors, my clients, and even the people i walk by on the street that simply just smile and say hi.

happy thanksgiving today & every day!

ina+tee : my wedding necklace

in honor of mother’s day today…

i love this picture that christine chang photography captured of my mom helping me put on my necklace.  not just because she captured the moment so well, but because there is so much meaning behind the necklace itself.


the necklace chain was a gift my late grandmother (my mom’s mom) gave to me before she passed.  my grandmother was a big part of my life growing up and i wanted to wear that necklace on my special day to honor her.


the necklace pendant is the same exact one my mom wore on her wedding day.


it’s easy to see from this picture, where i get my smile and my laugh from.  🙂


happy mother’s day, mom!  
thank you for the joy and laughter you bring to my life and those around you.

xo, ina

peace love & joy

a few months ago, tee and i took our engagement pictures with the fabulous christine chang photography.  she did such an amazing job and was able to capture so many wonderful pictures, i’ve been finding every excuse possible to use each and everyone one of them.  so of course, i had to use one for our holiday cards this year.  i knew immediately when i saw all the pictures which one i wanted to use come december.


i also knew immediately that i wanted our cards to be printed on this beautiful pearlescent cardstock paper.  it shimmers in the light.  and i thought, was so fitting for the image and the holiday message.


wishing you all PEACE LOVE & JOY this holiday season!

xo, ina
