1. Happy Father's Day! I thought I'd share with you a little about the 2 men that have impacted my life the most:
My Dad is focused, competitive, and a hard worker. He also has a nice southern drawl, can recite all of the great poets, and loves a good pecan pie. He has traveled the world and possesses a unique worldview from the things he has seen and experienced. My dad reiterated to my brother and me time and time again that kindness was above all traits.
Syd is F-U-N. I do not say that to take away from his intelligence, business sense, or uncanny ability to fix anything and everything; but he makes friends out of everyone he meets and I admire that quality most of all. He is the dad that slides down banisters, does cannonballs at the pool, and skateboards to the mailbox. Syd approaches life from a place of generosity. He also loves donuts and a good dad joke. I wake up next to him grateful every day and our girls have him wrapped around their little fingers.
2. There was a small rhinestone gem stuck in Wren's ear canal all last week. Yes, you read that correctly. Wren and Ivy just cannot seem to agree on how it got there! After a trip to the ER and a visit to an ENT, we were back to the hospital on Thursday to have it removed. The humor of the situation is not lost on me.
What a freaking week.
3. I went to the San Juan Islands for a much anticipated girls' weekend with friends from college. We try to get together once a year and wear nothing but athleisure (look it up) the entire time and talk a lot about our favorite lotions and potions. I'm sure glad workout gear replaced velour jumpsuits as acceptable casual attire.
6 I love the color of this exterior. I've been drawn to deep green/blues in interior spaces for quite some time, but love seeing it used in a different application.
7. We're in California right now because we had an install and then a meet and greet at the McGee & Co. shop in Costa Mesa! We usually bring the whole family when these things fall at the end of the week, so we can enjoy a weekend at the beach. Here's an iphone peek at the project we installed!
Have a great week! Xo-S
