Now that's a view!

Doesn't that look relaxing? I found it on pinterest and the photo originally came from  I love the look of wood Adirondack chairs with a snuggly fleece blanket. I can just see relaxing there, maybe with a steaming cup of hot chocolate? Or a nice glass of wine? I actually made this my screen saver so I could pretend relax at work!

I've been swooning over beautiful houses on Pinterest recently. I love this look, very classic, cape cod type style. In fact, I went through my board the other day and I clearly live on the wrong side of the country. I currently live in a very Spanish feeling bungalow in Northern California. It's very nice but still, a girl can dream can't she?

Short Hair

Over the years I've had a lot of different cuts, some short, some long. I've never been one of those girls who are attached to their hair. I grow it out, I cut it off. Time for a change? I'm most likely to cut my hair. It's short right now and while I was thinking about growing it out, I re-watched Sliding Doors over the long weekend and the found this picture on the internet. Love it! Guess I'll be staying short.

Yoga, a new discovery

It sometimes seems like I have tried every exercise trend/style in the world. I've been a runner, a swimmer, a biker. I've done barre classes, wii fit and I own enough exercise DVD's to stock a library. But I'd never done yoga before. I've been dealing with some personal issues and battling some personal demons and my doctor suggested I give it a try. I started with a video for complete beginners that streamed free on my kindle. It was really good but I thought I should make sure I was doing things correctly so I signed up for a few classes at the studio by my house. I can't explain how much I love it. I actually look forward to it, which I never thought I'd say about working out. I took my first "open level" as opposed to beginning class this weekend and smiled all day. I try and get to the live classes 2 times a week and do the videos on the other days. It's really been amazing and I'm a total convert. Anyone else?

I love the color camel. I just scored a beautiful Brooks Brothers coat (very similar to the one above)for a great price via eBay. Yes, it's almost summer but here in the SF Bay area, coats can be a year round thing and as they say, winter is coming. I've always loved the look of a camel coat but mostly always owned a red or navy one so I'm excited about this. I also love the look with the checked skirt and rich bag, shoe, glove combo. I'm already planning my copy cat look for fall.

I keep coming back

It's funny, I keep thinking that I'm going to retire this blog, that I've run out of thing to say. That doesn't seem to be the case as I keep coming back. Apparently I have more to say. It's been a crazy spring for me and I'm hoping for some summer fun! I have graduations to plan and hopefully some fun adventures to take. If you are still checking and reading, thanks! If you just happened to end up here, welcome and I hope you'll come back!
I'm using this picture because the hydrangeas in my yard are just starting to come into bloom and I love them!
