daddy’s little girl

while some girls dream of what dress they will wear as they walk down the aisle on their wedding day.  i dreamed of taking that walk down the aisle with my dad as he proudly gives me away to a man he respects and loves.  probably the main reason i chose to have a full wedding ceremony, instead of just settling for city hall.


thank you Dad for always being by my side since i was little, to catch me when i fall, to somehow always knowing how to fix what is broken and to help guide and support me through all of life’s lessons. 

happy father’s day!

xo, ina



a quote by Barbara Cage:

“Love is a partnership of two unique people who bring out the very best in each other and who know that even though they are wonderful individuals, they are even better together.”

happy love day!

happy 2013!


a new year is upon us,

filled with high hopes and new dreams,

but the wish remains the same…

wishing you peace, love and happiness everyday of the new year.

i love the version of the song, “auld lang syne,” featured in sex and the city the movie.  feel free to listen and reflect on the year past and the year ahead…

easy like sunday morning

after unintentionally falling asleep super early last night, i woke up this morning with the urge to make a yummy breakfast with jill scott collaborations playing in the background.  it’s definitely one of my favorite albums.  a good mix of songs to groove to and play from beginning to end on any given day, especially on a easy sunday morning like today.

my music inspired menu this morning turned out to be whole wheat french toast with fresh strawberries and veggie patties on the side.  i had the coffee but was definitely missing the mimosa.  maybe next sunday…
