friday beautiful to you m’loves.

and what a dazzling week it has been. the kind of week where i just want to linger in the cozy sweater moments of warmth; both from the sunshine and from the goodness in people and circumstance.

each morning is a rush to sweep back the heavy, thick theater curtains, hoping to unveil new bundles of happy dwelling, hiding in the back rows, or corners waiting to be discovered….tis sometimes where the treasures patiently bide.

don’t you agree?

here are a few shots of my caches this week…like i said it’s been a delightful week.

yesterday i came home to find my doorstep covered in party.

anna and jena, the magicians behind heavy petal flowers, and who i most recently girl crushed, fancied me with the sickest arrangement ever.

i was going to show off pics of my trader joe peonies, but they’re at present hiding with their petals between their stems.

you can now see why these girls own the floral industry in so-cal.

my family room has been instantly spritzed with cheerful.

earlier in the week, one of the most darling baristas ever made my day as he handed over my turkish latté { the cardamom is supposed to help lower the acidity of the espresso, FYI for peeps with bad stomachs}. old enough to have practically just bust through the embryo sac, this boy is sugar sweet. always with a kind compliment to what could be his mother, he said i earned the special heart of the day. 

telling him i knew i was just one of his many cougars he sweet talked for tips, i thanked him nonetheless and left him 2 bucks….


after sharing our plight of our inability to find the perfect, white, skinny jean with all of twitter, i decided to tackle the summer wardrobe pickle head on.

an hour and one very pissed off sales girl later, i’ve concluded hudson collin signature skinny is the best for this girl and her middle linebacker hamstrings.

and finally, a shot of my welcome home crew.

tell me my loves, what made your eyes dance this week?

wishing you a weekend happiest.

see you on the other side of sunday.
