Oh Marc!

It seems like you have done it again—created a dress that makes me swoon. This beautiful silk bird print makes me want to la la! It's practically begging me to bring it home.

I'm Obsessed: The Cambridge Satchel Company

Found another way to feed my neon obsession.  A beautiful fluorescent pink satchel from the Cambridge Satchel Company in the UK, made lovingly by hand just for me. A super simple design that I absolutely love—so much that I kind of want  it in more than one color, but one will just have to do for now =)

Going Greek

For the first time for years, Greek Easter fell a week after ours and we could for once, join our friends for a garden feast. I can't believe this was just a week ago—summer dresses, shorts and a baby goat on the rotisserie. Full fledged summer weather that unfortunately since has disappeared again. What a tease!

Have one more day of break until I'm starting my new job. Not sure what to expect, so for now I will just keep calm and carry on. We have managed to complete tons of renovation and maintenance work in the past few weeks, so hopefully once the summer is here we can just hang out and relax. But, there is still tons of things to get done and I have a full day scheduled for tomorrow. Better head to bed stat. Good night sweet friends.

PS. Per usual, not a single photo of me since I seem to alway be the one behind the lens...

Sunday Morning Pancakes

Weekend tradition—home made Swedish pancakes. And they taste extra delicious when my little helper is pitching in...sometimes half naked =)

Bamboo Leanne 34 Espadrilles

I have been looking around for some affordable summer sandals and found these really cute bright red espadrille wedges for only $32.00. These are going to be so cute with my white cutoffs and denim shirt—I can't wait for summer to get here!

Eggs and Bunnies

Finally having the time to post the photos from Easter Sunday. Amazingly enough, we were blessed with a gorgeous day just in time for the fourth annual Arthur family Easter extravaganza. Ever since we started hosting it's been nothing but sunshine—how lucky isn't that! Easter egg hunt, food and drinks, and even a few games of speed bird.

I think next year we are going to have to get a croquet set and plan a tournament. Or maybe even bring out that set of Kubb from the garage.

Stop and Go

It's been a little erratic with the blog updates this last year. This crazy schedule and job has left me completely drained and I've had little inspiration to come up with anything halfway interesting to say.

I finished up my very last day in this office this week, and I'm feeling things are going to be different going forward.

Still, it was a little bittersweet to leave behind all my friends. I'm even going to miss that guy that eats breakfast and lunch so loudly at his desk that I have to wear my headphone to block to sounds; and that girl that looks at everything as a glass half empty; and the woman that always wears clothes a size too small; and the guy that insists on showing up to every single meeting 8 minutes late. They have all been part of this great and sometimes challenging journey.

Hopefully I'll see you all around in the smallest big city in the world.


 I think I want these. Organic and Modern —just the way I like it.

Turning Another Page...

Just another week left at this job before it's time to bid everyone farewell after a hectic year.

Landed myself a sweet new gig at a smaller digital agency that just happens to not only have a snazzy Manhattan office, but also a small outpost on Long Island. How perfect doesn't that sound!? Even if it's just once in a while that I hang out in suburbia for the day, it will definitely add some life/work balance.

I guess a few small upgrades to the work wardrobe is completely justifiable! Just ordered this dress and blazer that I am utterly in love with.

'Gatsby' Blazer from Ovi, On sale for $42.00 and 'It's a Warp' Dress from Honey Punch, On sale for $36.00.

Oh my, this dress is so romantic. I just need some lawn tennis, croquet, tea and cucumber sandwiches and I'll be all set for a weekend in style.
