Going Away?

Screen Shot 2017-07-25 at 9.19.55 PMWe go away to get away.

And, it’s usually very exciting. Packing and the schlep through the airport usually isn’t part of that fun. Enter AWAY luggage, designed by Steph Korey and Jen Rubio, who cut their teeth at eyewear “unicorn” Warby Parker. The two women knew they could design a better, more thoughtful piece of luggage and make it for under $300. The original design has two compartments (one for clothes, one for shoes/toiletries), a USB charger and a TSA approved lock. Vogue called it “the perfect carry on”.

With a variety of colors, optional stickers and new monogramming….you can truly make this suitcase your own. And, at these prices…it also would make a great college graduation gift. Screen Shot 2017-07-25 at 9.21.17 PMScreen Shot 2017-07-25 at 9.15.12 PMaway-monogram-image Screen Shot 2017-07-25 at 9.21.58 PMScreen Shot 2017-07-25 at 9.13.08 PMScreen Shot 2017-07-25 at 9.19.07 PMSo, where are you going away next?!

Heavenly Hydrangeas

DSC_0400Ask anyone who has hydrangeas. This year has been AMAZING! Last year, not so much.

Like anything that isn’t a sure thing, when it happens it is REALLY good! Growing up in Dallas, TX, I was accustomed to the yard being dried up by July/August. So, I don’t take a summer garden for granted. And, in the Northeast July turns out to be a very good garden month.

As an added bonus, my fountain turned out to be a great holding spot for freshly cut hydrangeas.DSC_0410DSC_0404 DSC_0405 DSC_0406DSC_0408DSC_0410DSC_0407DSC_0411Wishing you a week ahead where everything is in bloom! Happy mid-Summer!!
