Hi ... It's Me

Happy Monday ... I am starting off the week super early.  I was up before the sun, already had three cups of coffee and I am ready to tackle the day and the week. Last week was super interesting for me, I was trying to get back into a schedule after a week of service and I felt so bad with on and off fevers and a cough I couldn't shake.  I slept a lot, sat quietly a lot (so much to process) and spent a lot of time snuggled up with my sweet husband when I was fever free. At times it felt like a long week, and other times it flew by.  I am happy to say I am now cough free, fever free and very well rested.


Introducing The Wölffer Kitchen

Anyone else a huge fan of Wölffer wine?  I absolutely love Summer In A Bottle and it is hands down my choice for a glass of rosé if I can.  In my opinion it is the best rosé I have ever had.  I hear it is very hard to find but easy to spot in this very beautiful bottle.  I was a little surprised to notice it had a screw top but I very quickly learned it is ideal for having just a glass in the evening.  No worries of it changing flavor once the cork is popped and easy to have on hand for sharing a glass with a friend.  I truly can not recommend it enough. 


12 Happies du Jour

Happy Tuesday!  It was so fun to scour so many sites and blogs to find some fun things to share with you today.  After being unplugged for more than a week it was fun to see what was new and exciting and to find some things that caught my eye.  Some of them are things I used while we were in Haiti which were lifesavers and some of them are brand new to me today.


Au Revior Haiti

We are home, catching up on our rest with overflowing hearts from our incredible week in Haiti.  I don't really have words for everything I feel and every single thing we experienced and as I am told that may take a while to completely process.  What I can tell you is how filled up I feel after spending seven days serving, way more than I could have ever expected.  We may be tired but we are most definitely not one single bit drained, truly the complete opposite.  Even after two long days of traveling home both my sweet girl and I wanted to turn right around and go back for more time with the precious community of Figuier and all of the lovely people who we instantly captured our hearts.  They have so little and love so much which is most definitely the biggest lesson we learned.


Introducing Barbara Cobb Sun Hats

I have such respect for a woman who takes charge of a situation that isn't working and makes it into a huge success which is exactly what my sweet friend Barbara Cobb did.  Unable to find a sunhat that fit her properly she designed one.  Not only did she design a sun hat for herself, but she made the world a better place by starting a company that sells stylish, custom sun hats that are quite possibly the cutest hats I have ever seen.  Oprah thinks so, recently adding them to her favorites list.


Pimm's Cup

To watch the Royal Wedding I planned a morning of tea, biscuits and fruit for my family to enjoy while I was drinking tea on repeat and taking in all the coverage of the magical day.  I set it up in the kitchen pretty fancy (it was a special day 😉) and the boys all wanted to know who was coming over.  No one silly ... we are celebrating the wedding of the year!!  Of course they thought I was worth the eye roll but they snatched up the yummy blueberry biscuits in no time flat. 


Father's Day Shopping Ideas

Wow, Father's Day is just around the corner and will come super quickly for me since I will be in Haiti the week before.  I needed to get my ducks in a row since I had to ship my Dad's and have Lawyer's ready for the day after we return.  😳


The Most Perfect Collaboration

I have such a treat for you today, I am introducing to quite possibly the most adorable collaboration of all time. Two of my favorite brands have partnered up to create the most amazing and beautiful pieces for both moms and littles. What results is a collection of the cutest clothes and the most precious photos, you will love each piece as much as I do.
