Guys, I had a entirely different post planned for today, but in light of world events over the past 24 hours it suddenly seemed petty and wholly myopic. I’m kicking off a whirlwind season of summer travel today but it’s all to see loved ones, celebrate milestones with dear friends and spend time with family all of whom I’m lucky enough to still have with me. SO many others aren’t so lucky. The daily trials and tribulations I face, though valid to my experience, pale in comparison to the horrors that bombard too many innocent people too frequently. As very scary things are happening these days, I only hope humanity can find it within itself to realize that difference can make us stronger, not tear us apart.

With that, I will get off my high horse and leave you with much lighter fare to enjoy this weekend. Please also hug someone you love.


> Palazzos are the season’s hottest pant. Not convinced? You’ll grab a pair after reading this!

> You’ll never believe what these healthy cronuts are made with!

> Can’t get enough of this NYC designer based collection- we spy Rebecca Atwood!

> A pink wall we don’t hate? Impossible! Not after seeing this pink makeover.

> Obsessed with this collection and their entire summer wear line up.

> This mirror DIY is super impressive- makes us want to try our hand at it ourselves!

> Design and pasta in one book? Dying to get our hands on this, far from ordinary cookbook.

> Loved the design upgrades in this cozy studio.

> Seafood and BBQ’s are on our minds. Can’t wait to try this recipe this weekend!


PS: I’m off to Portland so if you have any new must-dos please send them my way!!

  1. This is exactly what I wanted/needed to read this morning. I could not have said it better myself. I admit that I sometimes limit the events that I find “important” to only those happening within my own boarders, but the world is just so much bigger than that! Thank you for this post, and with that I’m off to hug all my friends and family.

  2. Your words about current events were beautifully written. Thank you for reminding us to show our loved ones how much they are appreciated.
