Making My Monday
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.
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.
