Red, White and Woo Hoo

DSC_0002Is anyone else excited about the upcoming L-O-N-G weekend?!

Even though school is still in session in the Northeast, Memorial Day Weekend makes it feel like “summer”. Beach clubs open, tennis tournaments commence and I’ll break out my new white dress. It’s also one of the times I set out all my flags to honor those we are really celebrating. Red, white and blue is a favorite color combo of mine, so I dress everything from the house and the table to the bar cart and the dog (Molly!).IMG_6567 IMG_0845 DSC_0019 DSC_0039 IMG_6569IMG_6140 IMG_6556IMG_6544IMG_6542

Here’s to the start of a great week…pool time and the long weekend are in sight! Bring out the red, white and blue. Woo hoo!

Falling for Fall

IMG_7461We’ll be “falling back” this weekend, much to my chagrin. I like daylight. I don’t mind nighttime, but it doesn’t need to arrive at 5pm! Or earlier, as it will this winter. The Northeast usually produces a gorgeous Fall season, but it’s over too quickly, as the leaves that are so vibrant are too soon on the ground.

As we “fall back”, I’m looking back over one of my favorite months of the year.IMG_7459 IMG_7469IMG_7449 IMG_7522 IMG_7524IMG_7569 IMG_7572 IMG_7577 IMG_7589Cheers to a happy Halloween, sneaking your favorite candy and cozying up by a fire. Good-bye October….it was a really good month!

What was your highlight for October?

If I Lived in London…

 

…I think I’d like to live in a neighborhood like this. 

While strolling through the neighborhoods of Knightsbridge and Chelsea, each entry was prettier than the next. Talk about making a great first impression. Glossy black doors seemed the most popular, so many of these are variations on a theme.

Couldn’t resist snapping a few extra photos of this charming area. 

Even my favorite Parisian chocolatier has an outpost here!

I went to London for the history and came away being awed by its beauty, charm…and curb appeal!

Which entrance is your favorite?
