be kind | blue & beige

Happy Friday!

Today, I’m feeling thankful. I am surrounded by love and kindness more than I am surrounded by hate. There are too many people in this world who can’t say the same, and I can’t even imagine. So, while you enjoy these beautiful schemes of blue and beige, think about how you can spread kindness and love to those around you. And don’t wait, do it now!

Have a beautiful weekend  – (it’s supposed to be 80 and sunny here in NYC!) – wherever you are.

…and we’re back! | wedding announcement

Lovely, lovely readers of mine!

It’s official, I’m back and ready to blog – with a new last name to boot.

Some of you may know I was rather busy planning S and I’s big day all summer long, and I have to say it was worth every second of chaos. It seems crazy to spend so much time and money on just a few hours – but after the experience of doing just that, I get it. I totally get it. It was, without a doubt, the greatest day of my life. We’re so blessed and thankful for the friends and family that supported us with their presence and from afar. We love you all so very much.

This Spring has been a slow merging of S and I’s possessions as we create the home we’ll share in two short months (!!). S is all moved in, and I’m in full decor mode, but I’m taking my time making decisions.

I recently purchased a canvas print of a photo I took during our San Francisco trip last Fall. I was mesmerized by how beautiful the dense fog was some days and how clear the air was on others. This shot always makes me stare just a little longer than the others. Here’s how it came out.

What do you think?

Speaking of favorite photos, here’s one from last Saturday of S and I on my family’s pontoon in Michigan. This is one of my happiest places.
