It’s full of unexpected twists and turns with new surprises around every bend. You birth this tiny human with absolutely no clue what kind of person he/she will turn out to be. You then have the ultimate responsibility of helping to shape their story and play a supporting role. It’s like a Choose Your Own Adventure book, but you know, actually REAL and with no alternative endings!
Mother’s Day is just over 2 weeks away (May 14th)… You know, in case you were wondering.
As a mom myself, I think I just may be able to offer some valuable insights into unique gift ideas that any mom would love to receive. I’ve compiled a Mother’s Day Gift Guide (a.k.a. my own personal wish list) to help get you started and on your way to scoring mom the best Mother’s Day gift yet!
The last couple weeks, I’ve spent a good amount of time giving my home a spring deep-clean. I’ve been removing clutter, organizing closets, cleaning woodwork and trim and finally, the fun part: updating decor.
While in the midst of this OCD-fueled process, I’ve taken note of a new trend in interior design and decor that’s a quick way to inject color and pattern, without disrupting the overall feel and aesthetic of your home. Regardless of whether your interior style is rustic, preppy, glam or boho, agate is a unique decorative detail to incorporate into your design.
Today is rather a significant, landmark day for our country.
This is the first year (that I can remember in my 30+ years) that American citizens are gathering together en-masse to recognize International Women’s Day. A day commemorating the global struggle for equal rights and the important contributions that women are making to society.
Ladies (and a few gents), in case you were wondering — women do a whole f*cking lot!
With each spring, my motivation kicks into turbo charge and I take on the challenge of a home decor refresh.
Clutter gets eliminated, furniture gets moved around and small tweaks are made throughout my living spaces — swapping textiles and throws, the addition of a new statement piece, switching art prints, etc. None of this is overly difficult or expensive, but the end result is always a breath of fresh air.
Man, January seems to be the month of the Great Purge.
Throughout the year, the needs of my clients shift. There’s always a natural ebb and flow between the shopping/styling requests and the cleansing/reorganization requests and currently, we’re leaning heavy into the latter.
We’re all excited for what the future holds and all of those resolutions we’re trying to hold ourselves accountable for (step away from the cookies!), yet anxious for the same reasons. We’re happy that the chaos of the holidays is behind us, yet bummed that we’ve returned to the regular grind. Worst of all, if you live in my part of the country it’s freezing, overcast and wet. Like everyday. Really. Kiss those beautiful SATIN ANKLE WRAP FLATS goodbye for the next 3 months.
Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens,
Bright copper kettles and soft woolen mittens…
Sorry, I couldn’t help it!!
I just watched the Sound of Music with my daughter last night and I’ve got all of the Julie Andrews’ goodness stuck in my head! Ear worm aside, there have been so many cool things that have caught my eye and stolen a piece of my heart over the past few weeks.
