Life List: Let’s Saber a Champagne Bottle!

January 16, 2015


Sabering a champagne bottle

Yesterday, I had my final meeting with my neurosurgeon to take the last images of my back and make sure everything is doing exactly what it’s supposed to be doing. And it was! I was granted a full release from any physical restrictions that were still remaining, and then proceeded to dance with hips in […]

Life List: Commission A Piece of Art – Maryanne Moodie

Comments Off on Life List: Commission A Piece of Art – Maryanne Moodie

When I started visualizing the aesthetic for this house, I had some very specific guidelines. I knew I wanted the color and texture and movement to come from the artwork and some of the textiles in the house, but I couldn’t quite get my head around an inspiration piece. Then I stumbled across this piece […]

I remember the first time I dreamed of Paris. I was in a college art history class – the first of many – sitting in a darkened auditorium watching images flash on to the screen. The Impressionists, the Expressionists – the glow of Renoir’s skins, the stroke of Monet. There was this swirl of history […]

To London, My Good Sir

August 5, 2013


I cannot believe I just typed that title. Would you forgive me this one indulgence? ::  I AM GOING TO LONDON!!  :: Thank you. If you happened to have pictured me with eyes squeezed tight, hunched over and running, Flashdance-style, you get five extra points BECAUSE I SO WAS. There are many things I planned […]

Life List: Get Back on a Horse

June 7, 2013


There are these terrifying things that happen to you when you’re a kid that you always remember. It’s true what they say, “Time heals all wounds,” but what it doesn’t really explain is that it may heal them, but that doesn’t mean you forget them. When I was nine I went to sleepaway camp. It […]

We had the neighborhood, the activities, the dates. We were thisclose to having the apartment (hey, there, Park Slope). I was thisclose to setting up meetings, roadtrips. But the Universe had other ideas. Not just one idea, MANY ideas in many areas, and soon it became apparent I had to be a grown up and […]

Life List: Create a Sensible Skin Care Routine & Stick With It

February 7, 2013


The thing about Life Lists is that every item on your list doesn’t have to be “Climb Mount Everest” or “Organize My Entire House” or “Get Bendy Like a Cirque du Soleil Member and Perform at My Kid’s Birthday Party”. Sometimes it’s just about doing the little things that affect your every day. I am […]

Life List: Learn to Shoot Skeet (& How I Became a Pinterest Quote)

January 31, 2013


  For YEARS I had been asking Husband to teach me to shoot. Years. The rationale was pretty simple: We have his late father’s shotguns which are both beautiful and meaningful. If we were going to keep guns in the house, I wanted to know how to use them, gun safety, etc. Same goes for […]

July 2, 2012


Two years ago I wrote about how I wanted to show the kids how other people lived differently. TWO YEARS. See, here’s the thing about plans and dreams and a Life List. They don’t just HAPPEN. You sort of have to DO SOMETHING. Because if you don’t you blink and two years goes by and […]

January 22, 2012


Last week I flew to Salt Lake City, Utah to attend the 2012 Altitude Design Summit. It’s a professional conference for those of us in social media focused on the design, style and creative space. At least that’s the official definition of it. What really defines this bootcamp for your creativity, design and writing passion […]
