Spring to me is like the fall – a time to reboot. You survive summer and winter, but you live in spring and fall. Spring’s new start means I’m picking a few things off my Life List to tackle. First up: Going back to the piano. I’m hoping I found a lovely man to teach […]

Pinterest Cooks: Coconut Mango Mojito

Each spring or summer, I try to find one, great drink that will become the signature drink for that beach season. Last year, it was the Painkiller. Last week, I finally stumbled across it – and it is GLORIOUS. Jessica of How Sweet It Is created the Coconut Mango Mojito that I found on Pinterest. […]

The Story of The Chairs

Almost a year ago, Ally from From the Right Bank did an unbelievable chair makeover. It haunted me. Once I knew we were moving into my grandmother’s house, the haunting got worse. Classic mid-century chairs in a killer leopard velvet? The perfect fit into my vision for this house? It had to be done. Finding […]

In the past several days, I’ve found myself having to have very difficult conversations. It’s okay, they are part of life. The difference is that a year or two ago, I would have avoided them. There’s an elephant in the room? Well, put a party hat on it and keep on going. I could be […]

Pinterest Cooks: Pavlova

Is there anything better than a girls’ lunch with friends you haven’t seen in awhile? Very little. This afternoon I got to catch up with some old friends and neighbors and, because it was such a legitimately beautiful spring day, I decided this lunch needed an extraordinary (but easy) salad, a crisp white wine, and […]

Your Children Should Not Follow Me on Social Media

Really, this post should just end at the title. There need not be any more said. But, I find myself in the situation where your children, small cousins, and even friends of Leah, are now following me on Twitter and Instagram. I can still lock them out of Facebook, and I fully intend to do […]

I have an old friend, Stacy, who you should get to know immediately. This page chronicles a battle she should not be fighting, but is valiantly. Do it. Warriors ride together. On her last post, she linked to the Elephant Journal, a site a bit out of my normal reading box, but interesting nonetheless. This […]

Happily Ever After The Mess

There are a whole lot of people who are really angry about how How I Met Your Mother ended its show finale last night. And, in truth, much of the feedback is correct. It was a heavy-handed, disjointed, costume-riddled mess that tried to do too much in 40 minutes. But, it really doesn’t matter what […]

Listen up, World – It’s That Time Again

It’s that time again. Spring. It’s time for shorts and sandals. Salads on the back patio. The smell of a grill. A crisp, cold white. Gin and tonics. Seafood right out of the gulf. Ribbons. Planting roses. Azaleas blooming. A good sunscreen and self-tanner. Hand-holding. Everything outdoors you can possibly imagine. Day dreaming. The beach […]

“Do you realize it’s already been a WEEK?!” – my bat mitzvah partner mom/friend No. I hadn’t thought of it like that. Wow. A week ago was a lifetime ago. I still can’t figure out what or how to write about it all, but I will. But, I can tell you, a week later, Leah […]
