a few weeks back my mom came to stay with us for a week and we had such a blast! we spent mornings shopping and wandering palm springs, afternoons sipping wine and lounging by the pool. we barbecued out nearly every night. while most of our visits these days seem to revolve around holidays and soaking up little Q, this week was all about the two of us. Q stayed in school for most of our days (though i did let him play hooky one day to go to the zoo ;>) it was really just a wonderful time for mother-daughter bonding-how fantastic is that?!

this year for mother’s day, i knew i wanted to ‘gift’ my mom some of those memories of our special week together but i just couldn’t decide which ones! lucky for me, printstagram offers tons of products to transform your favorite instagram shots into gifts like calendars, note cards, stickers and more! i ordered the gorgeous wooden photo display and a big stack of these 4×4 prints so she can display (and rotate through) all of her favorite photos…easy as pie!

here are a few of the photos from our week together, as well as the finished gift. i really love the simplicity and ease of this company and it’s such a great way to share all those fabulous insta pics we love so much. i highly recommend checking them out!

happy (early) mother’s day!






and here they are all wrapped up…
