"THE DETAILS ARE NOT THE DETAILS. THEY MAKE THE DESIGN." — CHARLES EAMES
|In Swell Rio you make the mundane (i.e. doctor's appointments, trips to Wal-Mart, etc.) feel fancy by busting out your trusty accessories.|
|I caught Flyboy and Max passed out on the couch one night. Moments like these make my heart swell.|
|On Friday nights, Flyboy takes the night shift. Of course that means I whip up something fizzy and spike it with a splash o' gin.|
|If you need an awesome cookie recipe, look no further than these Mint Chocolate Chunk Cookies. Trust me on this one!|
|Huzzah for cute and colorful wooden toys. I started looking at play mats for Max and the options made me cringe. Why so hideous?|
|We celebrated my mom's birthday last week. Thank goodness I was able to get one good shot of Max sporting his party hat before a meltdown.|
|When I need a little help coming up with Christmas gift ideas, I turn to the J.Crew style guide. Can I just live inside the catalog?!|
|Snazzy accessories are a requirement around here. Max, say hello to your new moccasins.|
|Afternoon strolls around the neighborhood are pretty great, especially when a quick jaunt puts the bebe to sleep.|
|This bookshelf is a new addition to Max's nursery. I've had the best time styling it! Although, I still find it precious on its own.|
I'll be honest, today's post almost didn't happen. Oh, the horror! This weekend was an absolute whirlwind, but I was bound and determined to publish something. I initially had a nifty moodboard planned (sigh), but Sunday got away from me with crafts, cookie baking, Christmas cards, and a crying baby. Yep, that's life these days! It's equal parts nutty and exciting and exhausting, but I wouldn't want it any other way. And since there was no time to toy around with Photoshop (Creative Cloud, please forgive me), I figured I'd share some of my favorite details from the past week—little moments that make this life oh-so sweet.
Now spill the beans, how the heck was your weekend? What made you bust out in a happy dance? I'm just dying to know.
