How to Live The Flamingo Life |Incorporating Flamingos Into Your Everyday Life

Flamingos have become pretty elemental to my life. It all started with a small Christmas joke that has launched to having flamingos at all of my major life events – wedding, showers, baby attire, decor, clothing, tattoo, etc… Flamingos are interesting birds. They mate for life, raise their young, and have a brilliant color due to their diets. Since I do incorporate flamingos into a lot of my life, I thought I would share some of my inspirations to help you incorporate these awesome birds into your life as well.

Prints and Photos – There are so many great photos and flamingo prints out there that it is so easy to use them to liven up any space. Check out some of my favorites.
