Moving on up

Southern pines #vscocam
You can now find all of my adventures over at Nash and Russo. As I begin shifting into my new business, I felt it was time to for a new name, and a new place to grow and share. Can’t wait to see you there!

Music time

This has been the most frustrating week of my year so far. It seems like almost nothing has gone smoothly or come easily. In fact, I nearly lost this post as soon as I finished writing it. So much stress, for so little result. I’m hoping I can just shake it all off over the weekend, or maybe I should beware the ides of March? Either way, I’m so grateful that I have these awesome little dudes to brighten up my day. Also an awesome husband and my mom here helping me get through this time of transition. I know I’m in for many more hiccups, but I have a great family and just thinking about them like this makes me feel a little lighter.

James Franco is just too silly sometimes.

How gorgeous are these floral prints by Ashley Bailey?

While I don’t miss smoking, I do miss smoke break sometimes. (Now, I call them get up and walk purposefully but aimlessly around the building)

This meme sums up yesterday perfectly.

Who doesn’t love an Alton Brown food hack?

I finally picked up this cookbook. I don’t know why I slept on it so long. I love breakfast and it is A-MAZ-ING.

Have a wonderful and stress free weekend.

Vintage Photograph

Here’s another favorite of my grandmother, Stephanie, who you first met here. I believe this photo was taken sometime in the ’40s, when Mom-Mom was in her twenties. I’m not sure what the occasion was (I’ll have to ask her), but it was either a family vacation or they were visiting her brother Johnny when he was in the Army (most of my family was in the Army, I’m such a rebel). Anyway, I really love this look because it is 100% something I would wear tomorrow and feel great in. I love the sash on the skirt. When I talk about keeping things simple and not having a huge color palette in favor of texture and detail, this is exactly what I’m talking about. And the shoes? I love a little peep toe/ankle strap combo.

This photo reminds me of spring, and the fact that it’s almost around the corner. I love that you can see her dimples, something that has been passed down to our Cub. I wish I had time to get my hair that curly.

Hope you’re having a great week.

xo, S.
