Happy Weekend!

July 10, 2010

Hey it’s the weekend! How did that happen? This week flew by and I’m heading out of New York soon to Los Angeles so I want to wish you a very happy weekend and on Monday I’ll be checking in but also posting a lovely home tour and sharing some more highlights and such. I want to wish you a wonderful weekend, I have to work but I’m trying to fit some shopping in later today because there are so many stores I want to see before leaving…

Happy Weekend!

I realllly miss blogging daily but Leslie has been doing a great job and next week I’ll be hanging out with her in L.A. so that will be nice to finally meet her in person. :) Yay! Last night I met up with some blogger friends and it was sooo nice to bring the virtual to the reality. One thing I’ve loved about all of this traveling  = THE PEOPLE! Outside of New York cab drivers, people here are so friendly and welcoming despite how massive this city is and the crazy hectic pace. I can’t wait to go to California to compare the lifestyle out there — I’ve not been to L.A. in five years and all I dream about is sitting by the sea enjoying fish tacos and sunshine with new friends by my side there. For all of those whom I’ve met while here in New York, thank you so much for the warm reception and fun times — it has been such a pleasure to meet you.

Well, it’s a wrap! I’ll see you on Monday and have a wonderful weekend! xo

    yay! sounds like the trip is a success so far! I’m looking forward to meeting several blog friends in real life this summer on our travels as well – in fact, we all met each other via your blogs! Happy trails in LA!

    Sounds like you are having a great trip – some fun as well as work

    I love weekends and hydrangeas :)

    Whenever I check in here you’re always doing something exciting, and LA seems to be the hip place for bloggers to head to these days (if Caroline, No is anything to go by!). Naturally, I intend to turn this completely around and bring Chincoteague into vogue as THE East Coast summer destination. The Hamptons is so 1980’s.

    Sounds like you are having fun. LA will be great – doesn’t matter if it rains or is sunny. It’s always a blast! Enjoy!

    Such a pretty purplish-blue.

    Keep enjoying your journey, Holly! It sounds amazing.

    OH so pretty!

    Have fun meeting Leslie — I didn’t know you two had never met! I feel like I know her just a little from all of the wonderful blog posts and from the class!

    Hugs to both of you. :)

    We’re hanging on here, just fine, waiting to hear about (and see) all that’s been keeping you so busy!! Good to throw some fun things into the work mix, too!

    We have had horrible weather for a few weeks here in LA. You can still enjoy outdoor activities but it is not the stuff of postcards.

    Hello, I am an interiors nut in Glasgow, Scotland, and having just discovered your blog have lost many hours over the past few days going back through your archive! My little girls (3 & 1) are wondering why mummy has been so busy with her computer… You have a great eye and I will definitely be a regular reader now!

  • Reply Amelia July 13, 2010 at 6:00 am

    Hope you have great and happy travels. I too have been meeting people person to person recently, who I originally met on-line and it is such a wonderful experience to connect with others all across the globe . . . .

    I absolutely love this picture of hydrangea. It reminds me of the bouquet I held as a bridesmaid at my sister’s wedding :)
