Thursday's weather

Happy Thursday! Feels like spring here, but it's really February. Scary? Or great? Or both?

Sophie's birthday party ... again

I had good intentions with this party. I had a plan for it to be very cheap. In the end, I hurt my back two days before and had to outsource food and cupcakes.  Overall, between the dollar store and Michael's crafts everything was pretty cheap. Balloons, martha stewart streamers cut and hung from the ceiling, some tulips and a photo montage basically summed up the decor.

Had I been able to make the gluten free cupcakes and wraps myself, this party would have been a record breaker for me.

So glad it's over. No more parties for 11 months. Woohoo!

Hello! And, NYC apartment

New Post. Woohoo!

I have taken a break, yes. I have been thinking about my blog alot lately. Thinking about how and when and if I should post.  I've decided I am just too inspired by great design and clever beautiful artsy things to walk away from this forever. So I will continue to post, every now and then, and hopefully most of you will find me.

So you don't think I just dropped the ball entirely. Over the past few months, I have been pulling my house together (coming along, not really picture ready..yet), getting through the holidays, planning many birthday parties, and last but not least, I have started a new career venture, a health coaching program. I will be creating an additional blog focusing on holistic health later in the spring. All good stuff. But I missed this. And I have lots of posts hanging out in my head waiting to be released.

For today, here's what I saw when I logged onto Remodelista yesterday.  This is a NYC west village apartment. I loved the sliding window panel so much I had to show you. More proof that it's never about the size of your home, it's all about how you use the space!
