I had this vision of an epic photo of Bean and I, mother and daughter, smiling at the camera with the lake and sunset behind us.  But apparently, Bean had her own ideas.  And standing with her back to the lake WAS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN {MOM!}. And we were losing light fast.  So instead, I have these.  Great reminders that Bean has a mind and will of her own, and that I should always, ALWAYS carry treats.

vacation style 2

back to milos!  i’m still going through some of the photos, and i look at them anytime i’m completely overwhelmed with work…it’s my escape.  i can still feel the sun, smell the sea, taste the fresh tomatoes.   

here’s an outfit i wore for a date night.  i love this dress for greece, it’s the color of the sea!  and that bun- made possible with one of these genius things.  and yes, that lipstick is the one i mentioned here.

my favorite vacation kitty

hello friends!  we’re back from our favorite vacation yet, a magical greek island called milos. it was even more amazing than we hoped it might be.  i’m going to fill you in on alll the details someday soon and we have lots of pretty photos to share!  hopefully i’ll be able to offer up enough to help you fantasize yourself there when you’re next in need of a mental getaway.

in the meantime, here’s a snap of me with my favorite stray cat that spent most breakfasts with us (and even snuck onto our balcony and hopped in bed for a cuddle with me one morning!)  it’s a battle for me to travel to places with so many strays, i want to adopt them all!  i left a piece of my heart with this sweet little tomcat.

we’re back to work but daydreaming about incredible greek food, the mediterranean sea, and sunsets that last for hours. i hope the end of summer is being sweet to you.
