I'm still here (and life lately, in pics).


some cozy coq au vin for two at Chaval.

I tried the ham and cheese croissant at ZUBakery (just nominated for a James Beard) and it did not disappoint.

Mabel got some snuggles in with my parents' dog, Fiona.

My sister and I went back to Eden Roc for a little escape from the winter doldrums, and it was perfection.

We were hit with not one, but two snowstorms when I got back, and it almost destroyed me.

I got a new linen quilt from Quince, and it has made it exceptionally difficult to get out of bed in the morning.

I wasn't meaning to completely disappear after such a strong start to January, but man, February and March sure are tough months. I was just feeling blah. The trip to Miami helped a lot (as it always does), and then we were hit with snow and it put a huge damper on any motivation I thought I had. But, it seems as though things have turned around, finally--the sun exists, it's been warm (relative to Maine) and I'm so looking forward to opening my windows and getting fresh air.

I have some fun things planned on the horizon, and I'll be checking in here more frequently. 

I promise.
