Farewell Merry May

Hello lovelies! I can’t believe it’s June already! 2012 is almost halfway done. This year has been pretty crazy yet amazing so far for me. New liaisons, collaborations, creative endeavors and friendships & love, of course. No matter how hectic life can get, I’ve vowed a few years back to cherish my friendships, old or new & to truly show it and make time for it. Because seriously, life just wouldn’t be amazing without them!A little over a week ago, I made a short trip to San Fran to reunite with a few of my high school friends, some I haven’t seen in twenty years! Isn’t that crazy? I can’t complain either that the location was SF. I’ve only been once before doing touristy things of course. This time, I really appreciated the city more & don’t get me wrong, I love my current hometown of Austin but San Francisco is just amazingly beautiful anywhere you look! Here’s a few instagram shots:

Clockwise from top left: I adore quaint shopping districts! Garden scroll bench at an Elmwood shop {SF Bay area}, we also visited Fillmore, Haight & Hayes; the Berkeley Rose Garden is breathtaking; that’s the Climbing Eden, my fave rose, just look at her elegant pink hue; me & my friend’s little boy; our view at brunch at Auberge du Soleil; I fell in love with this lime green Boulangerie on Hayes {the shop‘s fave color!}.

Earlier in the month, I visited my close friend Melissa {the redhead in the pic, isn’t she gorgeous?}, who moved to Colorado to finish her advanced Pilates training. I haven’t seen her in a year! We had great eats, including breakfast at Hotel Boulderado. I adored snuggling with her cute pup & checking out the Farmer’s Market & all the shops on Pearl Street. Good news is she’s coming back to Austin this year. I want my friend back!

So, June will be hectic as well but more *work* hectic type. Have an amazing week ahead everybody!

Details are my passion. From curating vignettes to designing spaces. I thrive in finding the finds and just discovered the art of collecting...all while sipping on a cafe au lait & a french macaroon in hand.

  1. Love the photo of you and your friends little boy! You are one good looking woman! I don’t think I’ve seen a photo of you before! I would’ve loved to visit that rose garden with you and the Eden rose is my fav kind – pale pink and climbing – perfect!!!


  2. Maureen,

    Great photos and I love the lime green Boulangerie!

    How wonderful to connect with your friends after 20 years!! It’s just a matter of {someone} initiating and then everything else falls into place. Looks like you had a wonderful time!
