Three new photographs have been added to the collection over here. They make me crack up every time I see them. I was inspired by the things I just love to have around the house that evoke memories, but I’ve learned I can’t hold onto things – I need to let them go, so I don’t collect too much in my home. For years what I’ve done is taken a picture of something before it leaves in a donation bin, or, goes to someone I know. I don’t need the item in hand to relive the happy memories, for me, seeing something triggers the emotions just as much as holding it in hand. Which is why I started photographing items that I thought were classic, and would also evoke those happy feelings in others, and would make great art.
It’s Saturday night. It’s midnight. Seems like a good time to update this blog of mine. So much has been happening over here in my world, that it has been difficult to start a single post and summarize each event, so I’m reverting back to my tried and true method of recording the best of the best, to share some links and quick updates to bring this place up to date.

The backstory is that I’ve been sitting on my photography collection for a few years now, wanting to launch it … but a few things held me back. As a creative I want to make and make and find new ways to explore what I love and photography is something I adore. I take photos that I want for my home – bright and airy, California and chill. It’s my escape from my business life, and brings me so much happiness.
So as much as I want these photos in my own home I kept hearing from others that they wanted them too. But I faced road blocks along the way. Continue Reading →
Happy New Year! Just a quick post. The house is a mess, although I was planning on taking a break after Christmas – I’m already into planning out the rest of 2018 and I seem to be fighting a never ending sinus cold. I purchased some new additions for our our bedroom this year – new side table lamps and a gorgeous pillow that seem to add the perfect new layers to the room.

This past Summer I was having coffee with my girlfriends Larissa and Patricia, and Patricia was telling us about a skincare system she using that she adored. It was in passing, and she just mentioned how much she loved it. Her skin is ridiculously beautiful, so I was intrigued by her recommendation. I wasn’t really originally paying attention, but she mentioned the brand, Rodan and Fields, and that it was by the doctors who came up with Proactive, and, that you buy it through a rep. I’m always hesitant to these things, but seeing her skin and doing some google on my own sleuthing, I was pretty surprised at the results that I was seeing. Patricia, loving the line, later became a rep herself a few months later.
So I decided to look into it. Some backstory — I sometimes felt like my skin felt “dull”. There was nothing overly wrong with it, except I felt like I needed to exfoliate ALL the time to get that pink dewy look. Which doesn’t work by the way, because I would aggravate my face. When I was asked about what kind of skin I had by Drug Store people, I’d shrug. I had NO idea. I waved my hands around my face and was like “give me back my youthful glow!”. I’d buy exfoliators, tones, and skin care lines – and spent a ton because I would try one line, then try another later. Things were piling up in my linen closet and on my vanity. Continue Reading →
I’m all about creating a peaceful, quiet home this season. In part for self preservation, also because it’s a lovely feeling to have a calm home. The main thing I’m doing is going sloooow this Christmas and not putting too much pressure on myself. But I’m also upping my essential oil game in the house to bring peace and relaxation.
