Happiest Birthday to You

I want to wish the happiest of birthdays to my amazing husband! Dylan, I hope you and Gavin have the best day today and I can’t wait to celebrate more tonight!

Back-story: I plotted with Dylan’s younger brother, Gavin, to surprise him and come to DC for the day from NY. Dylan almost jumped out of his skin last night when there was a knock on the door at 11:30pm and Gavin was standing there. It was SOOO great. I had told Dylan to take today off because I had something planned so now the two of them have the day together to wander around DC :)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY LOVE!!!

Time for a Soak

I am a huge fan of baths (I almost take them on a daily basis!) If you’re not normally a fan, I’m sure you might quickly become one in any of the tubs pictured here. Aren’t they amazing?! But don’t wait for an extravagant tub because baths are SO incredibly relaxing and beneficial to your entire body no matter what the tub looks like! I love to add Epsom salt and lavender oil to my baths, but plain old warm water is all it takes for a calming and detoxifying soak.

Do you take baths?

Relishing Spring

Doesn’t this time if year just make you want to lounge and gather in spaces like these? Houzz always has the best images of indoor and outdoor design ideas. If you haven’t checked them out, I would highly recommend it! My sister told me about the site months ago and I instantly feel in love.

Happy Wednesday! Can you believe it’s almost May?!

Hello Monday

I hope everyone had a great weekend! We made our yearly trip to the Cherry Blossom Festival yesterday, which was gorgeous as usual.  Surprisingly though almost all of the trees had white flowers rather than the usual pink ones – still very pretty, but different. Today, I’m looking forward to it making it up to almost 80 degrees! Makes me want to be in an outdoor space like this one…

How’s your Monday going so far?
