Lake Time

Happy Friday and holiday weekend my friends! After a fun couple of days hosting the Rikshaw Design trunk show with  girlfriend (the stuff is seriously so cute) and a few tasty sangria's, I am off to meet my family for the weekend at the lake. Seriously who could ask for a more relaxing, fun holiday than being with great friends, family, and relaxing by the water! Say no more, I am off.

Take Me Away

Take me away or find me a copper tub... I am home alone this week with the 3 kids while the Mr. is away and things around here are already off to a pleasant start, the baby has croup. Sure enough, my husband pulled out of the driveway and that baby started barking like a seal, par for the course when I am solo.

Although, I am getting ready to host a Boho trunk show for Rikshaw Design and couldn't be more thrilled! If you haven't checked out the hand block-printed designs by Catherine Fitzsimmons then you are certainly missing out. The line includes yummy bedding, tunics, for momma and baby in the softest cotton voile. If you are in my area stop by on Thursday evening 7-9 or Friday from 10-4 and if not go Here to see the collection. 

Here are some more fabulous tubs that I could spend some time in. I can imagine my skin beginning to shrivel up from having a long evening soak in one of these.
Have a lovely evening friends.

Sweet Serenity

My family had such a lovely evening tonight...gorgeous weather and a relaxing dinner outside, Spring and Fall nights are my favorite. With our busy lives it is easy to get wrapped up, missing out on these little occasions that I for one so desperately need. Sometimes it is nice to just take a time-out, sit in the grass, glass of wine in hand, and live in the moment.
 I realize I have all I want and need. 
This time of year I savor every second outside before the summer heat, humidity, and insects of the South take over. These images are some of my favorite with their serene simplistic beauty. A little inspiration to possibly start planning a dinner party?

Hello my friends, happy day to you and thank goodness for Friday! It has been a looong week but great one at that. My blogger has been down the last day or two, so I have been out of the loop and will have to catch up on all the latest buzz over the weekend. I am also looking forward to flipping through the pages of the newest issue of Lonny much to do so little time.
 I am very much looking forward to hitting the town tonight with the girls to celebrate a special friend's birthday! 
I have been working on my portfolio and am in the process of actually doing something with my website...other than having a holding page which has been there for a year or so. I mean really Rome wasn't built in a day so like I tell my clients these things don't happen instantly they take time, right?
 My friend, colleague, Marie of Phreckles Photography was so so wonderful this week when I needed photos in a jiffy and came to my rescue, thank you, thank you! 
She did some shots of my home so I thought I would share a few with you. I am really into detail oriented photos and always enjoy seeing them on other blogs and publications.
Hope you enjoy, I am off to paint the town...

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Day all my dears and Happy Mother's Day to all you mothers and the most stylish special, talented, fun-loving, and inspiring women in my life...I love you! 

Motherhood is by far the most rewarding experience and I am so thankful everyday for the oppurtunity to have these little miracles, to help guide them and find their own unique ways in this world...what a unbelievable experience as well as blessing! 

I am at the coast this weekend enjoying beautiful weather, feet in the sand with family and my own lovely mother who is the best mom and nana in the world. 
I have been reflecting on our past (with my mother), thinking about her sacrifices for me, and the challenges we faced. Believe you me being a single mom, living with a temperamental child like myself, whew! 
It is so remarkable to see where we are today and the full circle of life. I cannot thank you enough for taking that leap of faith as a young 18 year old girl. My life is fulfilled, happy, I can only hope to measure up to my mother with her unconditional love and that my children will love me as dearly as I do her.
Enjoy your day!

The 5th of May

Buenos Dias my friends and Happy Cinco de Mayo. My daughter goes to a Spanish magnet school and one of my favorite things is walking her to school in the morning where everyone greets us with Buenos Dias, love it!  I also love any excuse to down a margarita and have some chips with guacamole...maybe queso too.
I have been crazy busy this week helping a client spruce up her gorgeous home for a party she is hosting tomorrow evening and this evening we are planning all the outdoor decor for the party. Fingers crossed for beautiful weather because we have beautiful rugs we are rolling out to create an outdoor living area with a nod to eastern decor. I will try to snap a few pictures to share with you on my next post.
Enjoy your day, Hasta luego!

Monday, Monday

Happy Monday all, welcome to the week! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend, it was a beautiful one here.
 I am working in my office this morning and doing all the things I dislike at the first of the month, bills, invoicing, and cleaning bueno.
These offices give me a little inspiration for my own and they all seem to be so clean?
