The great apartment search

The hunt was over almost as quickly as it began. My sister and I couldn't resist the charm of this lakeside, 1920s, brownstone beauty. Now I have to patiently wait to move in...which isn't going to be easy. In the meantime I'm looking for all the perfect pieces to decorate my first real room in years.

Stay tuned for updates!

Learning how to take a vacation // 01


Today is day two of my two week vacation. You know that episode of F.R.I.E.N.D.S. where Ross is on sabbatical? Bueller...Bueller? Well anyway, I need a Joey to teach me how to spread out my to-do list over the next couple of weeks, because I am already itching to get back into the swing of things.  Yesterday I spent the afternoon scouring my favorite internet sites and fell in love with the 6 items above. I already own that baseball cap in red and highly recommend it to anyone who suffers from an occasional bad hair day (or two).
