One good thing about the torrential rain that California has had this winter is the amazing amount of flowers that it has produced. The hills in LA are green and covered in golden poppies and the flower market is overflowing with blooms. The best part is that it’s lilac season which means my house smells heavenly. I paired my lilac with fresh mint, because I think it’s a beautiful scent combination.
Here’s a small glimpse into the little reading nook in our new home. I love to read so it’s really important to me that I have a quite space where I can curl up with a good book. Our new house still needs a lot of furniture, art, and rugs, but we’re taking our time decorating so we can make it look just right. Sam is painting new art for our gallery wall while I’m scour antique shops and furniture stores for new pieces to fill the space. One thing that helps our empty home feel alive is fresh flowers. Right now I’m gravitating to simple flora like eucalyptus branches and handfuls of long stemmed hydrangeas arranged in glass vases.
Happy Friday, kittens. Thanks for stopping by the blog, I hope you all have a fantastic weekend.
As Sam and I slowly settle into our new home, we’ve been taking time each day to explore our neighborhood. We’ve already found a lovely flower shop just around the corner, and a cafe with a really good menu. There’s also a taco truck that comes by on weekdays, making it the perfect spot for grabbing a quick lunch during busy work days. Getting to know new neighborhoods while building new routines is an aspect of moving I really enjoy. I get a sense of calm when I spend my mornings doing a couple of my favorite activities like buying flowers and drinking too much coffee. It’s the little things that make the winter days more pleasant.
So as some of you have seen on my Instagram Live I’m in New York shooting a project with Match.com and Sam is at home with the pups. I’m here talking about relationships and people always ask me how we make it work, well Sam is at home and made this bouquet for me and shot it for this post. When he sent me the pictures he said “don’t tell em’ I made it” but I can’t help letting people know what a great guy he is and that even though it takes a lot of work, when you meet the right person you just know.
