“a portrait of my daughter, once a week, every week, in 2021”


we watched the chanel resort 2021 show in the morning during breakfast

afterwards, she came downstairs looking like this

obviously inspired by the show’s fashion

i’m in constant awe of the confident person she is

who she already knows she is, sees herself and how she chooses how the world sees her

she’s always been this way actually

there’s never been uncertainty in herself of who she is and who she wants to be

lead the way Lilian

lead the way

around here

it’s friday morning (8:50), i’m in bed, sipping my coffee, my side bedroom window is open (as it has been for a month now), birds are chirping and Lilian and Cailyn are still sleeping

there is no school today and the girls had a sleepover last night

it’s been a great, easy week

i painted a portrait almost every day since sunday and have sold art as well as kimonos

on sunday Lilian will be going to William’s and it always feels like our time apart is longer than our time together but hoping that will change with summer

happy friday friends!

ps- twenty three days until miami but who’s counting

it feels great to have a different approach to creating art. to just jump into it instead of giving it too much thought

i painted kristen mcmenamy, she commented on the finished piece and i just about died!!!

mother’s day is sunday. so many pretties in the shop


cookie passed away. we gave her a sweet burial. sad….this was Lilian’s first serious pet loss

these stunners that rebloomed through an air root

blooming in a pot on the back porch

oak island morning memory

it’s been so nice to finally be able to sleep with the windows open

Cailyn is our first official overnight guest and i was happy to see that the queen size blow up mattress fits well in the extra room

yesterday was a gorgeous day

night fluffy hair chronicles

around here. oak island

i spent most of this week in oak island with my old fox&beaux girls

it was its five year anniversary so Lauren rented a big ocean front house in oak island and invited me to come along

everyone had their own bedroom, there were delicious home cooked meals, cocktails, pool time, beach time, full pink moon walks…

it was the first time i have ever had a vacation with so many ladies and i loved every second of it

feeling so thankful to have been a part of it all

my bedroom view

around here

i can’t believe it is friday already

i feel like mine and Lilian’s time apart went by super slow

and that our time together this time around went by super fast

some weeks are just like that

we had a great week though

although sunny, we had a cold front come through dropping temperatures down to the 30s

and on a much warmer note, i booked our miami trip for june

we’ll be going for just a little over a week soon after Lilian is done with school and we are both so excited!

our last time there was spring break of 2019

too long…

bright sunny days. but cold. winter cold

a sweet breakfast treat

made a lot of art again

and sold some too

sunday’s colors

virtual learning queen

ice cream walking dates

and walks along the river

earth day. and a portugal memory from 2016

a hang out with her bestie

around here

it’s been a quiet week

Lilian has been with William, i volunteered all day on monday and for the most part have just been doing around the house and trying to get my painting inspiration back

spring is still springing and she is glorious!

so many trees with pink blooms still and now the azaleas are starting to add so much color to the ground as well

we’ve had some rainy days but for the most part, days have been sunny and in the sixties

Lilian will be coming on sunday and i cannot wait!

easter saturday

polaroids from an afternoon with a friend

sick with the second shot of moderna. it was bad you guys!

sibling day. ronda spain 2018. i miss my brother so much!

spring light

looking forward to having these two back

found inspiration yesterday
