Adios, April. I appreciate all your spring blooms but your pollen not so much. Other things I appreciated this month…..
…..that my backyard looks like this:
…..speaking to a nice group of folks at AB’s Design Camp:
…..and a good dose of New York:
…..which included Broadway of course:
…..lots of design inspiration:
…..installations that make you think:
….. drinks and great conversation with dear Amy:
…..and Jerry Seinfeld:
…..where there was a Martha Stewart sighting(!) There was also some late night dancing with my GBF, shirtless boys serving cosmo shots and other shenanigans that always ensue when I’m with him but there are no Instagrams of those! (Gotta keep it classy around here! Ha!)
April ended up being a month of connecting and re-connecting with a lot of friends which has me feeling really energized. Sometimes, between blogging and edesigning, I can go days without seeing anyone (other than my husband) and forget how great a good face-to-face talk can be. It’s hard because we’re all slammed with obligations but I believe you can and should make time for the people in your life. It doesn’t have to be some big elaborate production; a spontaneous get-together is easy and totally do-able no matter how busy we are. As a case in point, an old friend in New York who I hadn’t spoken to in years just happened to email me the day before my trip so we squeezed in a meet up last minute – we just made it happen and it was so great to catch up with her. So to everyone out there who has been saying we need to get together: email me, tweet me, send smoke signals, whatever…… let’s just do it!
