Wow! It's been a while. Let's get right to it, shall we?
Here's what made me feel all twitterpated, smile contagiously, giggle uncontrollably, etc.

  • Stackable Velvet Jewelry Tray // This might be the prettiest and most luxurious bauble storage, EVER.
  • Emotional Barometer // Aesthetically pleasing AND useful, this would be a great gift —especially in 2020.
  • Ribbon Bow Earrings // Festive, flirty, and fun! I snagged these at Madewell for less than twenty bucks.
  • Perfection Tray // I adore artist Martha Rich and I'm jonesing to own a piece of her work. This is a start.
  • Coco Sunglasses // Poppy needs a snazzy set of statement sunnies, so this gift is considered essential.
  • Debutante Bow Tree Topper // My jaw DROPPED when I laid eyes on this work of art by Loren Hope. Magic!
  • The Campbell Beanie // I love the story behind this brand. It's a perfect gift for anyone on your list.
  • Lindsey Burwell // I stumbled upon Lindsey's Instagram account before Thanksgiving and asked her if I could buy this print. She was fabulous and agreed. Eek! Now I'm the proud owner of this happy piece. 
  • The Clean Deo // Have you tried Beautycounter's deoderant? Thoughts? I've attempted the natural route and it's never really panned out. Ha! That being said, this cute packaging and color might sway me.
  • Face Modern Vase // A stunning find from Etsy, it's sure to be a Christmas gift favorite. Or, treat yourself!
  • The Adventure Challenge // A brilliant and simple concept! Make memories and document them.
  • Cable-Knit Sweater // I got this around my birthday on super sale and now I want all the colors!
  • Vintage Wide Velvet Bow // The price here is a bit steep for a barrette, but maybe it could be recreated?!
  • Satin Bow Mules // All dressed up with nowhere to go... That seems to be the theme of 2020, am I right?
  • Red Heart Socks // Mini Rodini's line of baby girls' clothing and accessories is even cuter than I anticipated.
  • Love Tote // For every tote purchased, one is donated to a Healthcare Hero at an impacted hospital.
  • Bowie Mask // Why not make a colorful statement with your daily mask? CV, you had me with the lips!
  • Forever Flower // This wooden cutout makes having Peonies around all year a reality. Sign me up.
  • Mr. Happy Mug // Start your day with a smile! I wouldn't mind a stack of these cuties in the cupboard.
  • The Type Set Co. // Get your font on with these reimagined alphabet magnets and letterboards! 
  • Stripe Bandana // This striped kerchief will always make me think of Beesly. It's such a happy scarf!

Have a fabulous weekend, m' dears! Make it count.

Happy Thursday, m' dears! It's been awhile since I've dumped a load of Delaware deetz on the blog. Then again, with alliteration like that, it's probably for the best. Ha Ha! The photos shared in today's post are a handful of my favorites from the past six months—bright spots amid the pandemic mundane. Sure there's been Tik-Tok coffee, patches of grey hair, and loaves of banana bread (that feels like FOREVER ago), but there's also been toads, tattoos, 350 Peloton rides (which makes me really proud!), plot twists in Flyboy's future employment (spoiler alert: we're not getting out of the USAF as we'd intended...yet), an impromptu trip to meet darling Poppy in August, and Max starting Kindergarten. If you follow along on Instagram, you've more than likely seen most of these images; however, I decided there should be a place for them to live here as well. This year has been a doozy for a variety of reasons, but it deserves to be documented. The imperfectly perfect resides here, just as it always has. With the bad comes the good, but I must say my perspectacles are looking rather optimistic today. You see, it's my 35th birthday, and if you told me six months ago that this dumpster fire of a year would result in me getting to share the day surrounded by all of my favorite people, I probably would have rolled my eyes and responded with a dismissive "Fat chance!" Because that's how a lot of this year has felt, but not today. Nope. My sister, her boyfriend, and my niece are on their way to D.C. for an extended weekend at my parents' house. Squee! Together we'll watch Flyboy and his bestie run the Marine Corps Marathon virtually, eat lots of good food and drink festive libations, watch the new version of The Witches on HBO Max (the original was our fave!), and squeeze in lots of cuddles with Poppy. So many of our plans (just like the rest of you) haven't amounted to much this year, so I'm beyond grateful for the opportunity to safely come together and get a little quality time with the ones I love. In a time as brutiful as 2020, we're all looking for ways to adapt to this new normal and to do so responsibly, but our vision and priorities couldn't be clearer. There's so much to be thankful for when we slow down and focus on the little moments that matter. It's always better when we're together.

Enough about me, how the heck are YOU? Have you had a chance to hug your loved ones yet?

My deepest apologies. I'm still getting used to Max's hybrid Kindergarten schedule. I really hope to blog more often than I have over the past six months. Yikes! Perhaps a life update will be published next week? Stay tuned. 

In the meantime, have a fabulous weekend, m' dears! Make it count.

Let's get right to it, shall we?
Here's what made me feel all twitterpated, smile contagiously, giggle uncontrollably, etc.

  • Double-Dot Handled Tray // Double the dots, double the fun. I'll take one of these for my nightstand.
  • Focused-ish Journal // After 70+ days of quarantine, staying "focused-ish" sounds pretty nice. Anyone else?
  • Feel Kinda Super Weird // If I was doodling in a journal right about now, it would look something like this.
  • Color Pop Canvas Kiki Flats // Here's the deal, J.Crew. I won't give up on you. Not with cute flats like these.

  • Daffodil Dog Bow // The Foggy Dog has the cutest assortment of pet accessories. Check. It. Out.
  • Isadore Ivory Sunglasses // Don these specs and keep on the sassy side. The yellow detail is flipping fab!
  • Striped Face Mask // Wearing a mask is mandatory in DE, so I've set out to find a few cute/comfy options.
  • Peloton // A month ago we joined the cult, and I've got to admit I understand all the hype. We're hooked! 
  • AERIN Scalloped Salad Plate // I noticed these were on sale and it might be a sign I need to snag a set.

  • Girls' Gingham Knot Headband // Could I get this in my size? Delightful neon edges should be mandatory. 
  • Mason Cabinet // I know exactly where I'd put this in our house. Now to win the lottery or something...
  • Michaela Drops // Dangly earrings meant to encourage the wearer to be "vacation happy." Why not?
  • Chartreuse Yeti Tumbler // I'm hooked on my coffee mug. It might be time to get a punchy tumbler too!
  • Aster Trivet // I had to do a double-take when I realized this was a trivet. Talk about fun and functional!
  • Sika Outdoor Ottoman // The price of this is a bit ridiculous. Target, could you create a bargain dupe?

Have a fabulous weekend, m' dears! Make it count.
