summertime, summertime

“It’s sum­mer­time, and the liv­ing is easy” or so Sam Cooke assures us. The demands of a new gar­den, the lure of vaca­tion, a child’s sched­ule is flux – along with enough work to fill every day – leaves me to doubt Cooke’s words. And so you, my Dear Read­ers, are left with­out a new post.  The ideas are swirling in my brain, await­ing their chance at freedom.

Real life con­nec­tions trump those in the vir­tual world every time. While I do trea­sure my vir­tual con­nec­tions, the imme­di­acy of those around me each day in the flesh can­not be ignored. I am hope­ful August will afford me the oppor­tu­nity to share some of my sum­mer finds and adventures.

For today, I leave you with these two events to look for­ward to:

Designer Spaces & Mar­ket Places returns for a sec­ond year, and it's going to be amaz­ing! Save the date for our Pass­port Party:

spaces and places

SAVE THE DATE! Spaces & Places Pass­port Party

And this, spot­ted at West­Farms, made my heart do a lit­tle jig!

anthropologie westfarms

anthro­polo­gie com­ing soon to westfarms!

But don't wish away the sum­mer — go out into the world, enjoy, and be sure to laugh!

Go ahead and laugh!!

    Just wanted to say hello. I see you are tak­ing a lit­tle break from blog­ging and I hope you enjoy it. I just found your blog some­how and REALLY enjoyed read­ing your arti­cle about the SHED design meet­ing. I have a new inte­rior design blog/business and what you wrote about in that arti­cle aligns very well with my vision for design. Thanks so much for shar­ing it. I would love to con­nect with you (vir­tu­ally) when­ever your sched­ule per­mits. Sin­cerely!
