“April is a promise that May is bound to keep.” – Hal Borland

Spring is well underway and it’s the perfect time to reflect on life’s happenings. I thought this would be a fun way to “take stock of my life” each season and share with you all. Enjoy!

Enjoying: taking some time for myself and saying “no” more
Listening: to my gut instinct always, my guiding force
Wearing: my new Pedro Garcia shoes. IN LOVE!!
Making: my garden magazine-worthy

Cooking: a roasted red pepper jam that is fabulous on lamb and flank steak
Drinking: a delicate sparkling wine
Feeling: excited about my sister-in-law’s wedding this summer
Reading: the June issue of Harper’s Bazaar

Mr. Goldfinch

Looking: at the beautiful goldfinches at the feeders in my backyard
Wishing: that I took the summer off
Liking: new café Origin Trade. Just fantastic!
Waiting: to plant all the fun stuff I bought at my favourite garden centres

Snacking: on the amazing butter tarts my colleague made
Coveting: my neighbour’s Shitzhu puppy. The cuteness is unreal.
Hearing: a very loud person talk about something very boring
Learning: to use my camera – thanks for the lessons, Tracey!

Loving: the giant hugs I get from the hubby when he gets home from work – life giving
Watching: horror movies in my free time when not gardening, running, blogging
Admiring: my mom right now. She’s blossoming at 65!
Getting: excited for our trip to Upstate New York in July. R&R and great music – here we come!

Shopping at Chanel,  Rue Cambon

Wondering: when I’ll get back to Paris
Playing: with my new, ill-advised bangs. Sigh. I’ll never learn.
Noticing: that running regularly really does make me happier
Giggling: at little inside jokes I share with my sisters

Bookmarking: Into the Gloss’ great interview with Stacy London
Deciding: on new blog themes
Hoping: for more hours in the day
Contemplating: tennis lessons

Wanting: this adorable off-the-shoulder dress from Club Monaco
Thinking: how I could smuggle a Shitzhu puppy into our house without anyone noticing
Knowing: that this summer is going to be great
Opening: the bag of Sephora goodies I got

Feeling: inspired
Marveling: at the Japanese Lilacs about to bloom in my city. So gorgeous!

  1. The winged victory of Samothrace is my fav sculpture ever! 💕 I was a regular visitor to the Louvre when I lived in Paris and used to stand at the bottom of the staircase it’s on and just stare at it. 😊💕
