Simply bringing it all together
MOM OF TWO, SOTHEBY'S REALTOR,
TRAVEL ENTHUSIAST, AVID BAKER, CULINARY + ENTERTAINING AFICIONADO, CURATOR OF HOME GOODS... SIMPLY BRINGING IT ALL TOGETHER
A word that means a lot to me is home. It's the common thread in my life that ties together all of the things that happily fill my cup. Home is not a place, it’s a feeling. It can mean different things to different people. To me it means several things. First and foremost, providing a safe and comfortable home for my daughters to grow up and thrive. Helping my friends and clients find their new homes or part peacefully with their current. Cooking with and gathering around the table with friends, feeding our souls and stomachs. I want my home to be a place of comfort, security, relaxation and welcome.
What is home to you?
Food + entertaining
LIVE . LAUGH . LOVE
Life Is A Celebration. Let's Celebrate Together!
SIMPLY LIVING EVERY DAY
ON THE BLOG
Let's have fun together, in the kitchen, at home and in life. Join me on a journey to live decadently but with simplicity. Beautiful meals don't have to be complicated. Baking can be (and is) fun. An elegant dinner party doesn't have to be stressful. A bouquet of flowers, lighting a candle, adding your favorite objects to a coffee table, this sets the tone and ambiance of your environment. Pure enjoyment of it all starts with organization & preparation and then everything falls beautifully into place.
Take A Deep Breath. Aaaaahhhhh!
A house is made of walls and beams; a home is built with love and dreams. Home is where love resides, memories are created, friends and family belong, and laughter never ends.
I MUST SAY, I'M SO THRILLED WITH THE WARM RECEPTION OF WONDERFUL & WELCOMING PEOPLE I HAVE THE JOY OF EXPERIENCING EVERY DAY. MY GOAL IS TO BUILD A COMMUNITY AND A PLACE WHERE YOU ENJOY VISITING, SO YOUR INPUT IS VALUABLE TO ME. PLEASE, COMMENT, ASK QUESTIONS, PUT IN YOUR REQUESTS...
I'D LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU.
this is the recipe for simplifying your home & your life!
ORGANIZATION IS THE AWARENESS OF WHAT DOESN'T WORK FOR US. ORDER IS THE FOUNDATION OF ALL THINGS, AND WITH THIS WE FEEL LIGHTER, FREE, EMPOWERED AND WE GAIN BACK THE TIME WASTED WADING THROUGH CLUTTER JUST TO GET STARTED, OR TO CONTINUE WHAT WE SET OUT TO ACHIEVE. FOR EVERY MINUTE SPENT ORGANIZING, AN HOUR IS GAINED. OUR MIND IS SET FREE, OUR HOME is light & airy and it feels alive.
our HOME SHOULD only CONTAIN WHAT IS USEFUL & WHAT we BELIEVE TO BE BEAUTIFUL.
Preparation is be defined as the process which someone undertakes to achieve proper results. preparation sets us up for success. even something as simple as reading a recipe in its entirety & having the ingredients ready prior to baking a cake determines the outcome... and the enjoyment of it all. so, before anything else, prepare.
TRUST THE PROCESS (01 & 02) and EVERYTHING WILL FALL INTO PLACE. THE GOAL ISN'T JUST TO GET THERE, IT'S ALSO ABOUT HAVING FUN ALONG THE WAY. DO THIS AND YOU SIMPLIFY YOUR LIFE. NOW, GO AND ENJOY IT!
