Getting Ready....

I'm getting ready to pull out all of my Christmas decorations, and I always forget how tedious it is....seems it takes the entire day! 
I have hot chocolate, Nat King Cole playing in the background, and a fire roaring in the fireplace.
Hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful! 
I know the season has just begun, but thought I would give you a break from the traditonal red and green....hope you enjoy these beautiful, soft pastels.

Feeling Festive

Sorry again for such a long absence.  My darling, sweet mother has been in the hospital for the last few days.  I've spent hour after hour in her room, looking at magazines, eating in the cafeteria and dreaming of a warm bath.  The doctors and nurses were extraordinary and I'm so thankful for the care that she received. 
Now, after multiple days in sweatshirts, yoga pants and tennis shoes, I am dreaming of a little festive glitter in my wardrobe.
Hope your week is going well..

A New Week

Good Monday Morning...We had a fantastic weekend, the weather was unusually warm, the sky was the most brillant shade of blue and the trees...they are simply stunning!
Hope your weekend was great...I think this is the magical Grand Central Station, isn't it beautiful?? 
Hope you have a great day!

Let the Countdown Begin....

As I was in Nordstrom on Saturday getting my daughter one last birthday gift, I suddenly heard the most glorious sound.....CHRISTMAS MUSIC!!
The deep, warm sound of Frank Sinatra singing Silent Night was dreamy, and in that one moment, I was utterly, hopelessly in the Christmas spirit.

Wishing you a wonderful Monday my friends!

Time to Recharge

I'm so sorry for my long absence...we have been busy with my daughter's 13th birthday this week.  We've had parties with friends, parties with grandparents, a sleepover party and then a party for just us!  After all, 13 is a big one!  All that partying has left me thoroughly exhausted!
I have a long, overdue appointment with my soaking tub like this, with my DVR remote, my book and a glass of pinot noir. 
Hope your weekend was special!
