Maxin' and Relaxin'

Happy first week of June! I am reporting for blogging duty from the beautiful, dry, HOT desert. I know, I know, I was just here with Wren! But I have a reason for returning so soon (aside from catching my breath)  I just can't share it yet in case a certain someone is reading. I'll share all the details next week, promise.

This week it is just Sean and I and we have had a really really special time. It feels like the day you head home with your brand new little baby your life changes forever and while we LOVE that life these few days alone, together have really reminded us what the heck we like about each other so darn much!

I have also been enjoying my other love: reading.

(the grass is so soft it almost looks fake, right?)
Just nearing the end of The Distant Hours by Kate Morton. So far I like it, as I have all her other novels. I love a good period mystery!


The flowers are insanely beautiful and fragrant, which kind of lessens my longing for lilacs.

We spend our days in the shade by the pool, and once the sun goes down we get dolled up for a date each evening.

The best place to catch a nap.

Not quite a pedicure...

In case you didn't know, we used to live here in the desert. So we have plenty of favorite restaurants and hang outs. But I just had to share the new Wolfgang Puck restaurant because I was so in love with the interior! Chairs painted in shades of yellow, green and blue, rustic wood and industrial lighting had me saying Mmmmm long before our food came out.

The crate shelving and amber glasses were my favorite detail. Tons of inspiration for a gal like me!!

Toodles till Friday!
