Making My Monday

2012 February 27

I spent the weekend holed up in a house in Palm Springs with some lovely ladies celebrating a friend’s birthday.

The champagne, gossip and late night cookie splurges were all great, but I think the 30 minutes I spent in complete silence, laying on a floatie in the pool staring up at an electric blue sky that couldn’t buy a cloud if it wanted to, was the most restorative part of the trip.

No iPad, no phone, no kids, not even a magazine.

Just me with my thoughts.

I guess I don’t visit them as often as I should.

Here are five things getting my week off on the right foot:

Gwyneth Paltrow at the Oscars. I don’t need to show you the full dress, you have seen it everywhere by now. Because it was absolutely lovely. As always, she embodied a minimal, classic chic that reminded me yet again why I do what I do right here on this blog.

Speaking of the blog, it has given me the good fortune of “meeting” some really fine people online and this one was kind enough to feature me on her amazing site today.

Even more excitement on the blog front: my little site is finally going to get a much-needed makeover. Am beginning the process of a redesign this week (this one is fine, but was a very last-minute solution via skater hubs and isn’t really “me”) and cannot wait to see the final product.

I am also officially in planning mode for Little D’s fifth birthday in early April and it’s going to be a good one.

And while I am at it, I have decided what I want for my birthday…I mean, it’s only a month behind hers, must plan ahead.

Happy Monday!

    That dress was magnificent. She doesn’t screw up much, does she?

    Good choice on the birthday “want”. Got my travel bag on a whim in Spain nine years ago and it still takes me everywhere!
