La La Loving

Here’s what I’m la la loving this week . . . Everything (plates, velvet cushions, lighting etc) featured in the West Elm Holiday Catalog. I’m, especially, smitten with the fall floral arrangement hovering so elegantly above the dining table. Cashew coffee. Who would have thought blending up a few cashews, with coffee, could make such a frothy […]

Not Perfect

The other day, I received a DM from an Instagram story. It wasn’t a fabulous story. It was neither styled, nor super-posed. Just me in my bathroom, with bad lighting, highlighting some retro spirit wear that I was sporting to my Ella’s volleyball game. The message, basically, said, “Your house is so perfect.” “Your life is […]

La La Loving

Here’s what I’m la la loving this week . . . Minted’s new Removable Wall Murals. Easy to install and easy to remove. I’m particularly fond of this one moody one called Otonio…the colors feel so perfect for fall and winter. I’d love to add a mural in my home. With fall and all, I’m digging cords. […]

A Sofa that Serves

I’m serious when it comes to sofas. So much so, that I’ll wait for the right one. I search and seek and swoon and sit patiently (on my old sofa) if I must –for just the right fit. I have three simple qualifications when it comes to sofas and sectionals. The perfect sofa or sectional […]

21 Days Vegan + How We Eat

If you follow on Instagram you may have heard me say that I did a 21-Day Vegan Program this summer–along with the promise of a forthcoming post. I didn’t wake up, one morning and decide that I wanted to be Vegan. Like many of you, I’m searching. I’m searching for a way to eat that agrees […]

La La Loving

Here’s what I’m la la loving this week . . . My Custom Star Map from Modern Map Art. I’ve been eyeing these unique one-of-a-kind gifts for some time. The idea of knowing what the night sky looked like on a date that you never want to forget is rather dreamy and romantic. Don’t you think? I chose […]

Dear Sister #3

Dear Sister, Sunday I turned forty-one. And in my Forty-first year, I want to become a ninja of love. I know. I know. Just keep reading. Forty was a year I won’t soon forget. It was the kind where two big life moments managed to seep into most of my 365 days. One, happening, joyful. […]

La La Loving

Here’s what I’m la la loving this week . . . My Sudio Wireless headphones! I’m all about listening to podcasts, lately (tell me, what is your favorite podcast?) and these wireless headphones block out all the noise (ahem, four kids on summer break) while I’m listening and cooking (or cleaning, or pottering about the house).  I have […]

Dear Sister #2

Dear Sister, Do you ever dawdle on decisions? I’ve been struggling as of late. The time I’ve spent deciding and discussing whether I should cut my hair or grow it out is rather embarrassing. I’m afraid to make choices because I am afraid of getting it wrong. But I wonder . . . What if getting […]

La La Loving

Here’s what I’m la la loving this week . . . This kitchen. Truth is, I’ve been loving it for quite some time and just happened upon a new photo of it. I’m not usually one for colors in the kitchen, but I adore the combination of the green and baby blue. The green modern base cabinets […]
