I loved this week. My mom has been in town visiting and I’ve also been working on a personal project over the last few months with some friends that launches next week — this pattern is from the project’s identity guide (my main task has been to get all the design elements together) and there’s so much other good stuff to share!
Please excuse the terribly chipped nail polish but until this week I didn’t know that jumbo Oreo ice cream sandwiches existed! I’m now convinced that they’re one of the best inventions ever.
Over the weekend, I attended a relative’s wedding with my mom and two aunts. When I heard that it was retro-themed, I knew just what dress to wear — this double-layered polka dot number that was a gift from my friend Mary Bee while I was in LA earlier this summer.
Needless to say, the wedding was gorgeous. But there were a few entertaining moments like when my aunt walked in late to sit next to us in the crowd and TRIPPED OVER A CAT! There was also another couple in head-to-toe polkadots I matched a little too well (to the point that my mom was like “I think those are your real parents.” Haha.) I was enamored with the couple’s idea of picking berries together for jam and labeling the jars with Sweet Love for the guests. All those individual, hand-done touches are what make weddings really special.
I love hanging out with my mom and aunts because I end up in a ton of places I normally never frequent…like farmer’s markets and crystal shops! It’s good to expand your horizons, right?
A little still-life: my post dinner dishes in my office.
Last night I met my friend for some chit-chat at the Doug Fir and ran into more friends and a fellow blog reader all the way from New York. Have a great weekend — I’ll be out on the town with my mom and wrapping up that personal project. I want this summer to last forever.
