And ode – actually a love list – to summer


Summer’s comin.’ And with it sweet tea (even if it’s in your vodka), sunscreen (the natural kind that hopefully still has a beachy smell), walking over driving, swimsuits, color (in the South it never left), heat, heat and more heat, summer hours (everyone has them), mental photographs, pen pals, pedicures that are seen, blockbuster films you may/may not catch, thunderstorms, scratching “learning to grill” off your to-do list, a new playlist dedicated to the season, gladiator sandals, umbrellas for shine not rain, poppycock on the beach, drinking from straws, convertibles (if you’re lucky), welcome shade, scooter rides just because, a rainbow of racerback tanks, boys in flops, an ever-present smile.

Listening to: Runaway by The Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs;  Born into a light by Ryan Adams; I feel it all (Diplo Remix) by Feist; Dancing in the Moonlight by King Harvest.

Oh I have it alright, but not as swanky a most I suspect . . .I need, I want to revisit The World’s Largest Totem Pole in Foyil, Oklahoma and the Garden of Eden in Lucas, Kansas.

New York state of mind.


Nothing feeds the soul – my soul – like the City.  Not just any city, but The City, as in New York, New York.  The energy, DSC00006the lights, the pace and the endless options including eggs at 4:30, a movie at midnight, coffee carts that serve HOT coffee, $10 manicures that last, and public transportation you can count on.  Love it.

I just spent three days there dashing in-and-out of meetings and now feel re-energized and inspired.  Ready to face the day, the economy (OK, almost), the red wall in my office and the false sense of cuteness I’m bound to suffer at some point today.

Thank you New York.

Our favorite things too!


We just adore Molly at My Favorite Things blog!  Talk about someone with an eye for style and a way with words, it’s her!  So, naturally we’re thrilled that she featured Daisy P’s Fabnotes and Notepads on her super-cool blog today!  The Fabnotes + notepads are kind of an obsession around the office now.  Their colors and designs are gorgeous for spring and fit-ever-so-perfectly in our spring handbags (we finally made the change from our larger, darker winter ones) for our running list of to-do’s, to-see’s and to-read’s. 

Kisses to Molly!  And to you: stock up on our Fabnotes + Notepads; they might go quickly now that all of the cool peeps know!
