Happy weekend! I am back in Charleston, after a week away in LA and then New York. It was such a great trip – I saw so many friends and made some really good progress with the design of my Sarah Flint shoe. Yesterday was my mom’s birthday so we had a little birthday dinner last night. This weekend is going to be very very low key. It feels really good to be home and I am looking forward to some quiet time. I am behind on chores and life admin, but what I really feel like doing is watching all of the movies (this is a great resource for streaming all the Oscar noms but of course I will also be watching Inventing Anna – I’ve been waiting so long for it!). Whatever you are up to, I hope it’s wonderful, restful, restorative, etc! Xoxo

March is SO tasty! The attention to detail from decor to food is next level 🙂

Regarding the viral comic strip, the one that has always really annoyed me is when someone says the dad is babysitting. Huh, isn’t it his kid? That doesn’t and never will be considered babysitting in my mind. The restaurant in Houston is amazing. I thought the tapeststry was a living wall at first because the colors are so vibrant. The purse stool is genius. Love the ice buckets and gorgeous glassware. It is a feast for your eyes and hopefully the food is just as great. Did you not swoon when you saw the designer use of your sister’s wallpaper? Gorgeous greens.
Couldn’t agree more re: “babysitting!!!!”
Yes, Grace- come to Houston!!
It’s def on my list!
