I’m obsessed with Instagram – it’s my favorite online home! Here’s a recap from the last week, and for those of you who aren’t on Instagram, come and join me!

Good morning from NYC!
Found a lot of love and joy in NYC today. I’m currently in bed about to pass out from a full day of activities.

Rachel and I had a photoshoot this morning with hair, makeup, a famed French phogtapher, a stylist who put us in Gudrun clothes. Unreal and so very sweet people ushering us through this journey these last couple of days. More photos soon after I stop sweating like a beast. It’s HOT here.

Thank you NYC and Gudrun Sjoden for having me. I’m heading back home to my family now and the timing is divine. Why? Because my dear John broke his shoulder in three places yesterday. I am needed back home. So very grateful he is okay as it could have been much worse.

You guys. Remember when I told you that I was putting an art shed in our back yard? Well, look what started today! This shed is the first in line of what will be a huge backyard makeover. Super excited to make this small yard space usable as our backyard is generally a mud pit (Portland, Oregon = rain most of the year) except a few weeks out of the year. Progress shots to come!

Our yard has finally sprung. So much green. Makes my heart really happy to have watched these plants mature these last couple of years. Love.
Meanwhile our bedroom is being painted Revere Pewter (best gray ever) as I didn’t love the yellow. John is cozy on the couch. Builders are in the back yard building the art shed. Lulu is passed out next to John (hasn’t left his side). True is at school. And I’m here at home working in the dining room. Full, good life.

I kinda can’t believe this is happening in the midst of so much other happenings. I’m starting to obsess over what colors to paint it. What do you think about dark grey with chartreuse door and flower boxes under the windows with a touch of deep rose accents?
A little soulcare this morning after a couple of days of full throttle. I’m having MASSIVE amount of respect for those of you who are doing the lion’s share in the work/parent/caregiving departments. Wow. I. Am. Humbled. I’m also feeling pretty darned fierce at managing it all this week while still keeping my gym and soulcare commitments. Huge giant boatloads of thanks to my parents for all the extra help. John goes into surgery in the morning. We are all looking forward to it.
And just like that, I’m in love with the gray walls. This is the 2nd room that had yellow walls that we’ve covered with gray. Really happy with it! It’s Revere Pewter by Benjamin Moore. Ahhhhhhh.
Ps: Most everything is vintage in this room, otherwise I’d tag where things came from. Rug is from Rugs USA!! Xxo!
She truly has not left John’s side. Not even for chance to sleep in our bed (John has been sleeping upright on the couch as it’s the only semi-comfortable position). She continues to be our family’s spirit dog and we are just so in love and grateful for all the joy she brings. I’m heading to bed. Exhausted over here and it’s a big day tomorrow.
