Happy Friday!

a creative mint never fails to have such beautiful images…

I especially like this shot right now because we were seeing lemon trees everywhere in San Fran. Wouldn’t it be great to have a fruit tree in your yard? Maybe you already do…



The Versatile Blogger Award

Thank you to the fabulous lady behind My Glamourology for passing on this award to me! Monique, you are a true fashionista and I never get tired of seeing what outfit you’re going to put together next, among all of the other fantastic jewelry, food, and NY-centric stories you share. Thank you again!! xo

Apparently this award entails me sharing 7 things about myself, as well as passing this award on to 5 lovely fellow bloggers (sorry, but I couldn’t do less than 6!), so here it goes…

  1. I met my husband when I was ten and after eleven years of being friends, we started dating when I was twenty one — BY FAR the best surprise of my life. We got married at a vineyard on Long Island 10 months ago.
  2. My younger sister and I were both born at home (on purpose) and without a doubt I plan on doing the same.
  3. When I was little I wanted to be a marine biologist and although I’m no longer pursuing that dream, I will never stop adoring dolphins, manatees and the beach.
  4. Some of my favorite indulgences include a glass of  red wine (preferably bold & fruity), hot lavender and epsom salt baths (so relaxing), watching The Golden Girls (now I can appreciate all of the jokes that completely went over my head when I was a kid), and foot massages (rejuvenation for the entire body!).
  5. My favorite season is fall, especially in the Catskills.
  6. I would take vegetables over dessert any day – I just don’t have a sweet tooth!
  7. I make candles and beauty products all the time and would love to have my own line one day, as well as a boutique or spa where I could sell the line. :)

Now I would like to pass this award on to 6 bloggers who are always on my daily reading list:
