What I Wore

My husband and son headed off on a Beaver Scout's camping trip earlier this month. I was left to my own devices. What did I do? I headed off to the Nicole Bridge warehouse sale of course! I picked up a great purple dress, a black cardigan, peach t-shirt and some much needed underwear. I […]

I was recently invited to the Vandusen Botanical Garden's First Annual Garden Party and Croquet Classic. Interestingly I had just visited Truffles Café for tea with some colleagues, but I had not been in the gardens themselves for some time. A summer afternoon Garden Party seemed the perfect excuse.

Sometimes we all need a night out. A girlfriend recently invited me out to a party for her birthday - I was her plus one. It was the first real grown up house party I have been to in a long time. It started with a smaller dinner with friends, and then the house filled […]

Last fall I did a full closet clean, trying to reduce a moth problem. As part of this project, I started to store a few of my sweaters in lovely boxes. I realized as I put this lovely Eileen Fisher sweater on, that it needs to hang. On this particular Friday, I was in a […]

Taking a look back at 2013 I am surprised by my most popular posts of the year. Honestly what was surprising was that many of my top posts were from past years - not 2013. But since I am just looking back at 2013, I will list only the top 10 popular posts written and […]
