Inspiration: Flowers

Oh, this mama is tired.

Between planning for a really enormous (and oh so fabulous) event, having a daughter who sleep walks and ends up in the oddest places in the middle of the night, and overextending myself and my schedule until I have no room to breathe, exhaustion is setting in and the dark circles under my eyes are deepening.

Even the weather is a bit gloomy these days, adding to that feeling of sleepiness.

But oh – wait! A simple addition of an accessory that whispers of spring, and suddenly life is a bit cheerier again.

    Deep Sigh of Relief
  • I just got back from vacation (and have seriously been researching cheap flights – without luck – to leave again because it’s so stinking cold here!). Tammy’s headed out in a few weeks to a warm destination. So we both have the tropics on our minds. We thought we’d put together a handy little vacation… [Continue Reading]

    Wild About Vacation Style
  • My 12 year old was over at a friend’s house last weekend. While most of the time I’m arresting her phone and entering it into our family phone-jail, this time was different.
