I'm happy to be home in Minnesota for the next week to work with clients and spend some overdue quality time with my family. One of my favorite routines at home is waking up in the morning and going straight out to our backyard gazebo for coffee and long chats. I don't bother changing out of my pajamas (hello, neighbors!) but I always grab a cup of hot coffee on my way out. Small town life is delightfully slower paced than I'm used to, so I love to linger out there for as long as I want, catch up on all my favorite catalogs and trashy mags, and map out the day ahead. We repeat the activity about 8 hours later, only then we have glasses of wine in hand.

Lazy Monday: Win a Pair of Plum Pretty Sugar Lounge Pants!

When I was getting married 2 summers ago, part of my massive list of priorities was to find the perfect robe to get ready in. I was thrilled when I came across the most gorgeous turquoise silk number by Plum Pretty Sugar. It was the best non-bridal yet special piece to prance around the house in while I got ready. This past week, the lovely robes were featured on Style Me Pretty, worn by a gaggle of lovely bridesmaids (that whole wedding has me drooling - the color palette, the bride's gown! Gah!).
