Fresh powder

Just back from Jackson, Wyo. Gorgeous/rugged/snowy. Lots of skiing (definitely needed my helmet) and hot chocolate.

Ok come on

I am ready to defrost. Was not expecting to see snow today. Anytime now, I would like some sunshine and chirping birds...
Pretty, warm peachy flowers from saipua.

BHLDN (inspired by the dutch word for "to keep") is the new vintage inspired wedding concept from anthropologie that launched online today. I see some really pretty things...

Messy hair

This little print on etsy caught my eye. One of my new year's resolutions was to curl my hair more often. I know... but at the time it just seemed like a completely valid self improvement type of goal. Am not off to a very good start so may consider abandoning the effort and just embracing my messy hair!

Last weekend

I spent last weekend celebrating the wedding of my dear friend Katy. She let me do the flowers, which was an honor and a true labor of love. Am hoping her photographer will share so I can bring you the real fabulousness of her wedding, which was held in a very industrial space that Katy and her fiance (whoops, sorry- HUSBAND!!!) Jamie transformed into a serious party venue.

Snow day

Ventured out twice yesterday. The first time was quiet and it was still snowing pretty hard. The only person out there was the pug guy out for a walk. Later in the day we headed to the park and it was full of people enjoying the snow. Amazed at the number of people on skis in downtown Chicago. What looks like a parking lot is really a long string of abandoned cars on northbound Lake Shore Drive. By the time we saw it, the city had towed some but there were hundreds left and the tow trucks and plows and were working their way north. And, of course, we could not resist jumping in a bit.
