This weekend is already off to a great start as I met up with four of my college girlfriends yesterday to head to Sonoma! We try to schedule these little getaways every few years, and I’m so looking forward to catching up over wine tasting, hiking and just enjoying a little downtime with each other. […]

    You really mean it when you say oasis!
    What an amazing parasol. It wouldn’t survive the winds here, which is why we gave up on parasols and built a pergola. Two, even.
    I also know a certain adolescent who would kill for that crochet chair. Now to figure out a spot to hang it. Maybe from the disused swing set….

When it comes to my actual mood at the moment, April has had me allllll over the place. I don’t need to tell you that on the surface life can look really dandy, but behind the scenes can be a whole other story. Most of you know that we’re on our way to a kitchen remodel starting […]

    Congrats on all the exciting adventures ahead, but I totally get you – they are adventures that will have serious ups with some downs along the way. My organizational life changed seriously when I bought my first Day Designer last year.

    Hopefully without sounding narcissistic, here’s a post I wrote about my love for it, along with my top organization tips: http://www.julesdutravail.com/blog/2015/11/28/the-organization-techniques-that-changed-my-life?rq=organization.

    And PS – Moleskin has a Wedding Journal that makes that organization so much more pleasant and creative! :-)

So, a couple weeks later, when the piece was still on my mind I decided to try my hand at making it myself! Not only did it cost way […]

      I totally should’ve specified! I punched two holes in the back and screwed it into the wall. It’s very secure and supports a lot of weight. If you’re looking for a less permanent option, you could always punch a couple holes and tie a wire or string to the back (like a frame), and hang it on a nail.
