lots of phrases and words I am slowly learning the hard way how to live by.

Happy Wednesday friends. We are prepping to leave for a weekend in Detroit for a Simple Evening with Mcclure’s and with some other amazing people. Very exciting stuff, but upon arriving home I am looking forward to focusing more on the above.

  1. If you haven’t already, and you’re not totally booked, try to check out Astro Coffee, The Sugar House and Nest.

    Astro makes a mean cup of coffee and Jess’ baked goods & breakfast items will blow your mind. Try the OG egg sandwich. It’s unreal.

    Sugar House has old-timey drinks and low lighting and Nest is owned by the creators of Bell Isle to 8 Mile: An Insiders Guide to Detroit.

    Great people and great projects.


  2. I really love this. I always go go go until I crash and end up having an emotional or physical breakdown. Or both. God for you for learning to breathe!

  3. rest is RIGHT! you need it girl!

    your tub looks so relaxing…. I have a pretty cool clawfoot tub in my OLD brownstone apartment (pretty sure it’s original…) and I’ve NEVER taken a bath in it!

    thanks to your inspiration, a bubble bath is in the plans for next weekend!!


  4. Ditto to what Bre said ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope you’re feeling better, girl! … Oh, and I want to jump into those images above.

    Just a random thought: Northern VA has some gorgeous countryside…just perfect for a Simple Evening ๐Ÿ˜‰
