Packing Zucchini Pasta for Lunch

Hopefully, you’re going to notice the picture quality to get better on Inspiralized. I’m working on it everyday, with help from my kind boyfriend. It’s a learning process, so bare with me! Over the weekend, I spent a small fortune on “staging” items for my photo “shoots.” I’m happy to debut some of these cute little napkins, bowls and plates on today’s post! Sorry for the girl rant, dudes – patterned tablecloths get my heart racing, I can’t help it.
