Hey friends,

It’s me. Your long-lost blogger friend whose trying to put a few words together this night :). I’ve been so busy lately – and sick for weeks – that this blog has really suffered. Sure, I’ve updated with a few announcements and all, but I’m still feeling like I haven’t actually hung out with you.

Right now I am finishing up some web design work and watching Notting Hill. Yes, still one of the best movies ever made. I’m drinking hot water (a Maria Menounos resolution of mine), wearing sweats, and letting a face mask dry. It’s a good night.

It was sort of sweet actually – I mean, I know she’s an actress and all that, so she can deliver a line – but she said that she might be as famous as can be – but also… that she was just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her. -William, Notting Hill

Want to know some thing things I am trying? I am trying a lot of Mediterranean food for dinners – we are trying to eat more healthy and fish is always good. For lunches, I have started making cool chopped salads by cutting them with a pizza cutter in a bowl. Let me know if you want a whole post on this.


I am loving the Golden Globes fashion (Emma Stone, anyone?), and am watching any interview with Benedict Cumberbatch that I can. But honestly, who isn’t? I am trying this new hair product. Anyone else using a Conditioning Cleanser? So far it’s interesting. Still am not sold yet. It smells divine, though. I also am loving this OPI Matte Top Coat. Yep, it’s amazing and matte nails are so gorgeous! Check out more favorites here.

Some things I am learning? That reading before bed is priceless. That even if everything else in my life seems helpless, I have my husband and that is all I need. That starting a business is hard. That I am not as good of a thank-you note writer as I wish I were (Christmas thank-you’s still are on the to-do list).

Something else I am learning? That I hate that time never stops. It is always moving forward, making us older. I have become very aware of this and I hate it. Not ground-breaking in general, but has been really striking to me lately.

How are you all? Getting back into the groove after Christmas? Not enjoying more cold weather? Any new favorite products or recipes? I’d love it if you just shared a little – so we can all have a little coffee break together :).

Please share.
