First Glimpse of France

May 24, 2017

We arrived in France yesterday morning after a red-eye flight from New York.  The baby was amazing on the flight!  Fortunately for us (and less fortunately for Delta), the flight was pretty empty because of bad weather and missed connections.  The flight team was amazing and immediately re-assigned the baby and I to a full row so he managed to sprawl out while I regarded him for the rest of the journey.  I think I did manage to catch a little…

Plant Care

May 3, 2017

Our front porch is drenched in sunshine for most of the day.  With summer temperatures rapidly approaching Charleston, we’re being extra careful to make sure that our plants survive the heat.   Will, my husband, is their primary caretaker and has set up an automatic watering system.  Still, in the interests of plant care we give them an extra soak most evenings, it’s a lovely way to enjoy the last bit of daylight and balmy early evening air.  Many of…

Julia generously tagged me in the “J.Crew Challenge,” and sent me this lovely top to style.  Amidst the beauty of Charleston’s spring, where white Confederate Jasmine is in full bloom, it was easy to show off the fun pop of color and graceful swing of this off-the-shoulder top in front of these fragrant blooms, spilling over the walls and gateways of my city’s historic downtown.   I also love JCrew’s rattan straw clutch (inspired by Julia’s love of wicker bags) and found it the perfect match for this spring top…

Tutorial: Moss-lined Hanging Baskets

April 18, 2017

We were so excited to bring home some hanging baskets of bougainvillea last week.  I am really drawn to their sprawling nature and fantastic colors (I think we all are!). We decided to place the retention pot that they came in inside a more traditional hanging basket, and to soften the “new” feel of the basket with moss, all purchased at the same garden center. They were so simple and easy to install on the porch and we could not be happier…
