Yesterday I helped a caterer-friend with a beautiful party on Boston's Harbor Islands. It was a hard day of very physical work in searing June heat, but any day that ends gliding through the harbor on a lobster boat, watching shooting stars and city lights, is okay by me. Today, my feet hurt and my skin is feeling a bit leather-y, so I treated myself to a super-slow morning.
The little guy listened to music and looked at books.
And I sipped a lovely iced coffee, rubbed my feet with arnica-peppermint oil, caught up on work e-mail, and perused one of my favorite blogs, The Selby is in Your Place.
Selby recently did a short series in Auckland, New Zealand and I loved the quirky spaces he captured there. Auckland is hometown to a good friend of mine, and I've always been intrigued by her photos and stories from there; now I'm officially enamored of what looks like a charming city.
|I love EVERYTHING about stylist Charlotte Rust's kitchen: the sleek stainless steel contrasting the organic wooden ladder and cutting board, the tiny shelves to showcase favorite pottery mugs, and the spare bed/meditation space. LOVE.|
