With a Heavy Heart

Considering the tragedy that unfolded in Connecticut, I didn't feel right blogging about beautiful homes, expensive evening gowns or decadent jewelry without a thought or mention of the lives that were forever changed in a instant yesterday morning.
As a mother myself, I cannot fathom the pain the families of those children must be going through and I cannot comprehend the amount of grief that must come from the loss of a child.  The educators that gave their lives to save and protect innocent children have become my new definition of Heroes.
I often wonder when tragedies like this happen if we ever truly take the time to stop and realize the blessings we all have.  As we all rush 100 miles an hour toward the holidays with last minute gifts, errands and parties, please take a quiet moment and reflect on your life and what's important.

So in love with this room....I'm back from a few lovely days in Southern California, which was absolutely divine. 
The coast was beautiful and just what I needed to get me ready for the next 12 days! 
Hope your holidays are shaping up to be the best well!

Getting Ready....

I'm getting ready to pull out all of my Christmas decorations, and I always forget how tedious it is....seems it takes the entire day! 
I have hot chocolate, Nat King Cole playing in the background, and a fire roaring in the fireplace.
Hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful! 
I know the season has just begun, but thought I would give you a break from the traditonal red and green....hope you enjoy these beautiful, soft pastels.

Feeling Festive

Sorry again for such a long absence.  My darling, sweet mother has been in the hospital for the last few days.  I've spent hour after hour in her room, looking at magazines, eating in the cafeteria and dreaming of a warm bath.  The doctors and nurses were extraordinary and I'm so thankful for the care that she received. 
Now, after multiple days in sweatshirts, yoga pants and tennis shoes, I am dreaming of a little festive glitter in my wardrobe.
Hope your week is going well..
