Happy birthday, America! We (my grandmother and I!) spent our holiday weekend watching orange-pink sunsets & bursts of fireworks along the beach, playing dominoes until bed time, and chatting over coffee in the morning.

Today, we’re people watching & on the lookout for more fireworks. Holy hibiscus, Ccocoa Beach is beautiful in summer!

Hope you have a Happy 4th!

So many good things about summer, but mostly peach season. Last Saturday morning, I took Danny to the Peach Stand— which is exactly what it sounds like, a stand that sells locally grown peaches and produce in the heart of Fort Mill (aka my hometown). It was so fun to show him a little piece of where I grew up. Hope your weekend is sweet and sunny!

I may or may not have eaten two peaches while typing this.

If you’re looking for ways to spend a morning in the city, consider visiting the Elizabeth Street Garden tucked in Nolita. It is the perfect oasis between shopping and brunching.  Bring a blanket and spend an hour reading (conveniently located near McNally Johnson, if you’re empty handed) underneath a trees or quickly stroll through the .46 acres of green space if you’re pressed for time.

New York City parks and gardens are magical in the summer, but it’s little ones like these that make turning a corner on a crowded neighborhood incredibly rewarding.

The garden offers various events throughout the week and weekend, which you can read about here.  Unfortunately, housing construction plans are a threat, but by signing this letter and spreading the news you can make a difference.

What is your favorite way to spend a Saturday morning? Any favorite parks? Let me know.

Now get out there! It’s summer.

Spent a week out West with Danny to celebrate his birthday (more on that fun later) and fell totally in love. Here’s photos from Red Rock Canyon, just fifteen miles or so outside Vegas. We packed a lunch and took the scenic drive. Not a bad date. Nevada rocks!

Weekend ft. Charleston, SC

February 24, 2015 § Leave a comment

Processed with VSCOcam with a6 presetImmediately after my last post it made little sense not to drive to Charleston, SC. It’s a three hour road trip & I haven’t been back since I graduated SEVEN MONTHS ago. Surreal. That place. So special. #JustALittleTooPerfect #JustALittleTooWorthIt . Processed with VSCOcam with a6 preset
