To all the dads out there, I hope you have a happy and relaxing Father’s Day full of family time, good food, and maybe a ball game or two with no one nagging you to pick up your socks. Ha! At least, that’s probably what my husband is wishing for.
I started my blog as an online journal in 2006, and over the years it has morphed into a personal lifestyle and fashion blog. I have kept most of my history in tact for the sake of posterity, and I do still post memoir-style posts from time to time. My Sunday Coffee Talk posts are all here in the Diary section.
Greetings, friends. Happy Sunday! I’ve been sitting on my front porch with my coffee, enjoying the sunshine and the mild temperatures and the serenade of the birds. This is the kind of morning summers are made of. I was excited to make this season’s inaugural visit to the swimming pool yesterday afternoon. We spent a few hours soaking up the sun while the kids played, and then we came home and enjoyed some patio time.
Hello, friends. Happy Sunday! It’s a beautiful one here in Philly. In fact, we’ve been having gorgeous spring weather for much of this week. We often complain that it switches abruptly from winter to summer here, but we are currently enjoying that gorgeous in-between weather where you can have the windows open and enjoy being outside without being too hot or too cold.

This week is the latter, but I hate to skip my Coffee Talk again because it seems like I haven’t written one in ages. On the other hand, it feels rather presumptuous to think that you really care about what is going on in my day to day life. I mean, I
Hello, there! I’m finally feeling settled back in here at home since being gone so much lately, so today I thought I’d share a little more about my rewardStyle conference experience (and of course what I wore!) For those who may not know, rewardStyle is a platform that connects bloggers and social influencers with relevant brands, and the conference is specifically geared to fashion blogging. Like any other business conference, there are general sessions, break-out sessions, networking opportunities, and some fun events. As much
Good morning! Just a brief Coffee Talk this morning before I go get ready for the day’s festivities. I hope you’re all having a good weekend, whether you’re traveling, hanging out at home, or getting together with family and friends. My Instagram feed is full of gorgeous travel pictures, cute Easter-themed treats and crafts, and lots of kids dressed up for family gatherings and Easter egg hunts. Mine includes none of those, lol, but we’ve had a good time
