Bluestone Lane Collective Cafe (West Village) is my current NYC fave. Misery Loves Company Bakeshop is my every-Sunday latte spot here....and it's a block from my new apartment. Counter Culture in SF.

I readily admit that I do not have a green thumb. Yes, I am the daughter of an avid gardener...but that is one of the many talents that I did not inherit. My wish list for our new light-filled apartment... Continue reading

As we move toward moving, I'm thinking a lot about what I want our new space to look & feel like. We're cutting our square footage in half...and we're so excited about that. Downsizing our living space translates to upsizing... Continue reading

It was a whirlwind week. We put the house back on the market on Friday the 6th. We were under contract by Wednesday the 11th. Like, woah. I think that I spent most of the week in shock. I have... Continue reading

I find that the longer I'm "away" from the blog, the harder it is to return. That has to be some kind of first world problem, right? If I was blogging with any regular cadence, here's what I'd likely be... Continue reading

Oh, January. You were full of possibilities, plans, and parts that I didn't care for. It feels like so much more than a month. I only blogged a little, but I lived a lot. A few things that were my... Continue reading

*photo note below I always know when I've neglected this space b/c I get an email from someone who gave birth to me...a virtual nudge as if to say "hey, are you still alive?" I know the technique well, b/c... Continue reading

January is all about clean slates, fresh starts, new lists. I'm craving white space right now...uncluttered margins & gutters. We still have our Christmas tree up, per the request of one girl who returned to university today. I'm so ready... Continue reading
