I get a lot of inspiration from other blogs. So, in hopes someone might get some inspiration from me, I've decided to post some pictures here.

So, as you may have noticed by my lack of recent posts, I haven't felt overly creative with lunches recently. I've still been packing everyday and trying to keep them cute, but I just haven't felt them worthy of the effort of taking a picture and posting them. Today I had lunch with the girls and both of them had friends that asked "So, what's the theme of today's lunch?" So...the theme is butterflies!

  • 2 butterfly-shaped sandwiches

  • Strawberries, mandarin oranges and blueberry butterfly

  • Broccoli and carrot butterfly with ranch

  • Cheese stick (halved and stacked)

  • York peppermint
