I came across this sign earlier today. I find it perfect for my state of mind these days.

I hope you all have a great weekend. We're off to the beach with friends to play in the sand and swim in the ocean. See you next week.

I've Got Paris On My Mind

The count down is on. We leave for Paris next Saturday and I'm starting to get really excited. Paris makes my heart go pitter patter. These are a few shots taken from our last visit in 2007. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. Have a great Wednesday.

With Love

I'm sending these via blog (because I know she reads it) to my lovely friend Jessica, who is stuck at the hospital on bed rest. I promise you'll get the real thing with a pile of goodies on Wed. xo

Happy Monday

Enjoy the day!

Save Anna

I found this poster at Hudson and West 11th St. I think the trailer below is most fitting. I can not wait!

'The September Issue' Trailer HD


I love the simplicity of this photo. I especially love my sister-in-laws wedding dress from J.Crew.

Poking About

Last week my Mom (Mum) and I had a terrific girls day out. We poked "aboot" at our favorite antique shop in Toronto and had a lovely lunch, catching up and laughing 'face-to-face' instead of over the phone. These are a few of our finds.

Backyard Oasis

This backyard is an NYC oasis in my mind. If I lived here, I would drink my morning coffee and read The Times looking out at all that green. Liam, my 4-year old, bugged out when he saw this tent at his pals townhouse. I'm now making a tent with a sheet over his bed before he falls asleep...I'm becoming quite a tent master.

I find these pictures easy on the eye. The wallpaper rocks and it hails from my friend Maria's Chelsea apt - she has the most incredible taste. Sweetiepie is every little girls dream restaurant and they make a mean latte. I love white hydrangeas, especially beside my bed. They are such a happy flower. I hope you enjoy this mosaic as much as I do.

I'm loving the African landscape in the new Mark Burnett show called Expedition Africa on The History Channel. I took this picture when I was in Uganda a few years ago and it is one of my all time favs.
