There was a time in my life when I was sitting under the sunny LA sun tapping my toes against the pool water listening to Houses on my iPhone… I was having deep thoughts, watching the sun beams tease the vines before me. There’s a time in your life when you decide to question everything: Who am I? Where do I want to be going? How do I get there? I decided I didn’t want to be a vagabond anymore, drifting in and out of things. I wanted to be a mountain, strong and focused. Read more »

Summer is a time when I feel most free… there’s a glow on everything, there’s a sweet scent that floats in the air. I love when my skin feels sun-kissed and a slight breeze cools me. The days seem to go a lot slower in the summer, like the time freezes inside a golden bubble. The ocean calls me, entices me to play around in its salty waves and soft sands daily. Summer is a time for daydreaming, a time for the imaginable and a time for sun-kissed loves with everything you know… summer is my favorite time of year. The summer is mine.
We have a new book club read this week! I’ve recently been reading great reviews about Joan Didion’s novel Play It As It Lays and bought it to start my series of summer reads. There has been much praise about the literary quality of this book. I love descriptive writing more than anything and a book written beautifully kills me every time, so I thought I’d give it a go. Play It As It Lays is about American life in the late 1960′s – it captures the mood of an entire generation, set in a place beyond good and evil – literally in Hollywood, Las Vegas, and the barren wasteland of the Mojave Desert.
In honor of Earth Day, we planted our very own Dogwood tree today here in the Navy Yard. We were lucky enough to have two garden experts — Scott from Terrain and Susanne from our home office – to help us! We’re so excited to have done something to celebrate Earth Day, and we can’t wait to watch our tree grow! Read more »
What I love about springtime the most is the transition — when you start to feel the weather getting a little warmer, when you see the first buds appear on the trees and then everything starts to glow and become bright. Things are given a new life. This spring I have decided to decorate my back porch and start to grow herbs and flowers, starting this weekend. I have been researching heirloom seeds and have purchased a couple of packets from The Happy Cat Farm right here in Philly.
