Hello Summertime

A proper welcome to NYC's 78F summer weather today. Eggplant, yellow neon, and coral—one of my many favorite color combos.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!







A couple of days late with the St. Patty's day photos, but this was another busy weekend. 

More clearing out of closets, basement, attic —and another five huge bags of donations gathered up. It's amazing how much junk I have saved deep down in the closets. Exhausting, but what a liberating feeling afterwards! I'm almost addicted to it. I can't wait to have every little nook and cranny cleaned out. Soon the house will be completely clutter free!

Still had time for some good ol' family fun and our traditional corned beef & cabbage at the in-laws house.

Chocolates

I've been eating a lot of them...for various reasons.

Feeling guilty...

Feeling Nautical


This rope belt is so cute and it's only $20—such a great buy for the summer. I'm thinking with my cute with my white denim cut offs going out sailing, or with a sweet summer dress for a BBQ. It's definiatley making the spring shopping list.

Obsession: Minty Green






This light minty green is one of my absolute favorite colors for spring.

Perfect Blush Toothpick Jeans



I keep on telling myself I need these. Stat.

J. Crew Toothpick Jean in neon persimmon, $125.00 @jcrew.com

Ballet Flats from Toms


I wear Toms all summer long—running to the beach, work, errands—and they are the comfiest shoes ever. The fact that they now come in cute ballet flats, especially these in burlap, is making me super excited. I guess a bunch of other people feel the same, since they are sold out in almost every single size. I guess I'll wait patiently for a few weeks.

Infectious Optimism


I love days like this.

1. Spring is unofficially here (a crazy 73F and sunny in New York City today)
2. I got a 5 second glimpse of cutie pie Miranda Kerr leaving the building across the street from my office. (I was secretly hoping her hottie hubby Orlando Bloom would be with her, but no such luck) [pic proof above =)]
3. I found the necklace I have spent months looking for at Ann Taylor. It's sold out every where, but I managed to find one last one on 5th avenue. And it was 40% off!
4. Met a new girl at work who just happen to be not only from Sweden, but actually from Scania! My neck of the woods! Plus, her boyfriend is from my little village back home. With just 9,000 inhabitants, what are the chances of that!
5. And to top it all off, I had an amazing client meeting that felt like a giant group hug.

How does it get any better than that!

Another 15 minutes on the train, and then I'll be home with my two favorite people. I'm thinking dinner, a glass of wine and a nice juicy British mystery on PBS. Yep, that's right people, we are the mystery nerds!

Best Girl in the World

That cute little face has a radical attitude to go with it.

Seating for Four


With spring is just around the corner, we started to make plans for the garden. For a while we were thinking of building a screened in porch,but I think that idea has been put on hold for now. Too many things to do already. I found this beautiful dark brown all-weather wicker sofa and chairs that I really, really want for the back yard. And since there won't be a porch this year, if we could just get a deck built, I would be in heaven!

The Kids are Back in Town



















Back from a few beautiful days in Mexico—it's amazing what a few days in the sun can do for the soul. I feel completely rejuvenated and ready for spring! Of course, as always, I could have stayed for another few days if it wasn't for our little love bug at home. Luckily we came home to spring time temperatures in NYC. The day before yesterday was actually 70F! 

An unexpected benefit of the vacation—I seem to have rediscovered some writing inspiration for the blog again. I guess that is what sun shine and sleep do to you. I have been in this weird funk after the holidays and nothing felt interesting enough to write about. But now I finally feel like I have found my way again.

Have spent all weekend sorting through my dresser and linen closet. I managed to gather up 5 big bags of garbage and equally many bags for donation. I finally feel like I can breath! Plenty of room for all my things.

82F and Sunny












I know I have been a little bit of a slacker updating the blog the last week or two, but work has just been taking over all available time. Just sitting in the airport waiting to take off for some much needed R&R in Mexico—current forecast 82 and sunny! I have been waiting for this vacation for weeks. 

We'll be spending then next five days on the beach, margarita in hand, just the two of us for our first real vacation alone since Cami was born. A little bitter sweet since we'll miss her like crazy, but a few uninterrupted dinners, naps and late mornings in bed are much needed. 

A few pictures of our crazy goofball. We'll miss you cutie pie =)
