la la loving


this little happy spot and the finished look of smitten studio (so perfect).


this pea pesto tartine recipe (i know – – more toast!).


the idea of living in the moment and by the moment.


hair like this.  gorgeous.  i’m happy w/ my shorter hair right now, but i’ll dream.


a basket light – which looks like a super easy DIY. Get basket.  Turn upside down.  String light thru.

and, hey, as i was penning out “moment by moment” i noticed that the word moment starts with “mom.”   if you are anthing like me you have a hard time being in the mom moment.  it was just a great little reminder for me today that, as a mom, i need to be fully in the moment and present in the minutes…and leading the way in teaching my littles how to live that way too!

what are you loving this week?

    I just found your blog through a post on Blog Society and I absolutely love it. You have a very refreshing writing style and the design and photography has a nice simplicity but yet it is bright and indeed very lovely.
