My life and work are inspired by a simple philosophy: you are already h(om)e.

A Happy Fourth
I hope everyone had a great holiday! What a gorgeous day it was! Billy and I headed over to my parents’ boat for our annual Fourth of July festivities, except this year it was just the two of us because my family was off having their own adventures. We spent the whole day (and night) on the boat by ourselves and had a great time.

If you love avocados as much as I do, then you’re going to go gaga over this smoothie. My best friend Estelle came for a visit over Memorial Day weekend and made one for me. I listened to her talk about this avocado smoothie for weeks; she discovered it on her recent travels to Mexico and has not shut up about it since. Now that I’ve tried it, I get what all the fuss was about! It’s delicious!

One of my biggest inspirations for entertaining comes from a scene in Breakfast at Tiffany’s where Holly slips a handwritten note under Paul’s door inviting him over for drinks. I love everything about it—the personal note, the impromptu invite, the throw-it-all-together-at-the-last-minute attitude. As a recovering perfectionist and a chronic over thinker, spontaneous entertaining is one of the sharpest tools in my h(om)e practice because it asks me to go with the flow.

Rituals On Display
There are tiny little rituals in my day that are so important and yet so mundane, I wouldn’t necessarily think to celebrate them. Putting on my jewelry, for example, brings a sense of purpose to my day. The way my favorite hand cream smells grounds me in the comfort of a familiar scent but also lifts my spirits. These seemingly unimportant moments in my day are actually quite meaningful; they string together and create meaning.
