Pretty in plum…

Every once in a while you may see a reoccurring theme on this blog, which is likely a strong indication that I like something. A lot.

Mainly because I… Continue reading Pretty in plum…

Weekend Recap…

My weekend recap this weekend is pretty short.  I spent the majority of it in a meeting room with little to report on this design blog but the delicious mints on our conference tables that I continually consumed.  But, I did get the chance to go on a nice walk with my husband and puppy…… Continue reading Weekend Recap…

Mint mania

So lately everyone has been posting, pinning, and talking about the color mint. Even my husband (although to be fair, he has been talking about mint.com, the website that summarizes our finances, not the color). I’ll be honest, while I love mint-flavored pastries, drinks and candies (like peppermint patties for instance), I have not yet jumped on… Continue reading Mint mania
