Even though spring here in NYC is off to a very lackluster start, I’ve been closely watching the tiny buds on the trees and religiously checking the 10-day weather forecast, and I believe warmer days are coming.
As I press my way through these remaining chilly days we’re having, the thing that helps me most is daydreaming about my list of things I’m looking forward to. I’m sharing my wish list in hopes it might inspire you to create your own and motivate you to go about checking things off the list too. Newness and life will be ushered in by spring, and it’s the perfect time to try something new in our lives too.
Fridays are special days around here. Because Sundays are like work days for us, Fridays are the new Saturdays. And it works out great, because we drop off Jameson at daycare, finish up a little work, and then have the day to relax, enjoy each other, and hopefully enjoy something new in the city.
This past Friday we headed down to the Lower East Side in pursuit of “the best pancakes in the city.”
Life is full of contrast. This week brought tears, and it also brought laughter to the point of my face hurting. And I’m grateful for it all.
I’m capping off the week with a little round up of things that made the last seven days memorable. Kind of like that classic mixtape you’d make in middle school for a friend, I’m putting my favorites together and passing them on.
This has been a long, tough week, but alas, the weekend is oh-so-near! We have friends visiting from out of town, which means we have reason to
eat good food show them a good time. Here are a few things worth sharing before I head into the weekend…
One of the things I hope this blog can be is a space for shining light on people who are living inspiring stories and adding style to life (head nod to the blog title “Storied + Styled.”)
A friend recently introduced me to Brooke, founder of Union + Dixie candle company, and it didn’t take long for me to be inspired by her drive to start her own business and her commitment to producing a beautiful, eco- and health-friendly line of candles. She was nice enough to share some of her experiences and wisdom with me, and I’m passing along the goodness, as well as instructions for how you can score one of her beautiful candles for yourself.
