And just like that, it’s Memorial Day Weekend and the unofficial start of summer. I feel like the past few months have gone by in an actual blink? Originally I didn’t have anything planned besides laying low and hanging at the pool but then Becca called me on Wednesday morning. I thought I’d messed something up with the podcast (ha ha, this is how my brain works lately) but she was calling to see if she could visit! She booked a spontaneous trip (got in last night and leaves Tuesday) and I’m so happy that she’s here. I made a few dinner reservations but I have a feeling we’ll most likely be lame together. Reading and sunshine! Also, I love this photo – it’s from the shoot I did with Tracy Anderson a few weeks ago when she was visiting Charleston.

The New Jersey home speaks to my soul! I could never conceptualize the style I put together in my head until I saw this home. Thank you for bringing Fawn Galli to me.
It’s so special and unique!
Obsessed with these links this week, especially the maximalist apt! (I almost got the Marimekko duvet in the article so I deeply relate.) And so excited for you to have Katie on the pod, I started her book and am reading it really slowly to savor.
The book is SO great!
