Spring Break!

Monday, March 17th, 2014

I’ve been looking forward to this week all month! The kids are off school for Spring Break so Matt and I are taking a few days off too. We’re flying to Las Vegas to hang out at my parents house – we’ll be spending our hours lounging poolside under palm trees sipping cold beverages and enjoying a date night downtown!

I’ve got so much to share when I get back next week, projects that have been in the works for a over a month and an update on that fixer home we’re buying. I’ll be back here on Friday with a link roundup. Have a great week everyone!

Merry Christmas to You!

Monday, December 23rd, 2013

We had the most wonderful party ever on Saturday with many friends gathered in our home. It definitely puts one in the Christmas spirit! One of the lessons 2013 taught me was the value of time off, so I’m taking this week away from the computer to enjoy Christmas and all the joy it brings. I have two children so very excited for the arrival of Santa then we’re off the mountains for a few days to enjoy a winter wonderland.

I want to thank you all for visiting, for your comments, your friendship, your correspondence, and your support throughout the year. I’m gearing up for a 2014 filled with a lot of home improvement, and a continued conversation on making spaces lovely and livable. I can’t wait to share all the details in the New Year! Next week’s postings will be light – we all know downtime and unplugging leads to great things: rested minds, bodies, and new bursts of creativity.

I wish you all peace, love, joy, merriment, safe travels, good cheer, and kisses under the mistletoe. Enjoy the season, play in the snow, get cozy with the ones you love, decompress, eat chocolate, and have a glass of bubbly or two. 

I’ll be back on Monday the 30th, meanwhile connect with me here :

Spring Break

Tuesday, March 19th, 2013

Hi friends, guess where I am this week?  Why the Aloha State, that’s where! And how funny that I wrote this post on Ten Reasons I Miss Hawaii three years ago on this very day.

It’s been six years since we’ve been to Hawaii but we scored some affordable flights on Hawaiian Airlines a month ago and this week we’ve finally returned to the islands.

I don’t have any guest posts scheduled nor do I have any plans to blog, I think that would make my vacation less enjoyable, so I’m offline for the remainder of the week. If you want to live vicariously follow along on Instagram for a daily dose of aloha. Then again, if that’s annoying to see other people on vacation, you might not!

You can catch a couple articles scheduled for later this week over at Centsational Style. Meanwhile I’ll be soaking up the sun, toes in the sand, mai tais in hand, listening to slack-key guitar with the feeling of aloha all around. In paradise!

Be back first thing next week to share some favorite sights from the islands!
