Link Love + Orchids

Lately Around here

I’m chomping at the bit to feel the full warmth of Spring, but man!  It is taking forever for it to arrive!  This weekend was a tease with that beautiful sun, and then…. the cold temperatures tricked us all.   Total weather fail.

But that didn’t stop C and I from going for a romantic drink at a spot that overlooks the ocean.  How lucky are we?  I live at the shore and see this view a lot, but I try not to take it for granted…

Me + C

On another note,  orchids.  You GUYS!  I was so floored with the colors of the orchid C gave me for Easter last week that I’ve been totally obsessing about it.  The varying degrees of pinks and purple make my heart race; I can’t stop staring at it.  The colors send me into overdrive every morning when I look at it.

THEN.  He came home Sunday with 2 more orchids, sending me into another a tailspin.  The obsession continues!  How cool are they?!

Tigerlily orchid

There’s something very soft about the colors –they’re very specific, yet blended together…

Yellow Orchid

So pretty–right?  Here’s my whole family of orchids:

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom. -Marcel Proust

That quote is so, so true.  It’s quite magical how not only people, but nature makes me feel like I’m blooming.  You too?

Link Love + Easter

Lately Around here

Happy Belated Easter!  I had a great time this weekend catching up with family and eating candy until I thought I was going to explode.  The holiday was full of happy memory-making: egg dying, chick-making, family reunions, chocolate binges and just plain loving the moment.  Here are some pictures of the fun:


My engineer dad had to make some home-made egg dippers because the adults got rowdy and wouldn’t share with the kids.  And look at those deviled eggs!  My sister knocked it out of the park with those little chicks.


 C got me and amazing orchid for Easter–I was swooning over this beauty.  I hope I don’t kill it, I know they are very temperamental.


Fun times together…
