. . . airplanes and altitudes aside, it is proving a little more difficult than anticipated to properly get back into things after a week away, especially while feeling a little under the weather from a sudden late-winter cold, but after a few deadlines, projects and social obligations, {including dinner reservations with family from out-of-town}, perhaps a little repose and an inordinate amount of beauty sleep, and things will be as they should . . . for tomorrow, a very exciting announcement, and later in the week, a few glimpses of the past week in paris . . .

. . . another whirlwind weekend has fluttered by breathtakingly, and positively filled with friends and laughter and very late nights, and despite the recent {& completely unintentional} week off, a million thank you's for coming back to visit, and most of all, for the amazingly spectacular warm welcome home! there's so much to tell you and it's so lovely to see you again . . .

hope you've had a beautiful, beautiful weekend & that your week is off to a perfect start,

. . . one of my very favourite things is to catch pretty glimpses of personal affects -- perfume collections and sequined clutches, bouquets and bangles, and most of all, glittery necklaces artfully displayed . . .

{home again & hello}

hello-header
bonjour-paris-apt


. . . hello, hello! . . . just in, after a week in paris, home again late yesterday, and today feels like a monday, complete with a very fashionably late start, and after traipsing about nearly completely {& perhaps a little unbelievably} off-line, including facebook, twitter, twitpic, instagram, etc. {somewhat of an accomplishment over workaholic tendencies}, it's back to business with over 1,000 things unread in google reader and nearly 2,000 email messages . . . and with travel cases filled with party dresses, lacy skirts and pretty shoes barely unpacked . . . for now, a few moments to catch up and to catch my breath . . .

looking forward to catching up with you soon & hope you're having a perfectly wonderful week so far,
xo

{moments of repose . . .}

lacysunday-7

. . . after a whirlwind week, very much looking forward to a few days of repose, and {as the days magically become longer} even more so, for the fresh early spring afternoons when the floaty & flirty summer whites that have been waiting patiently in the back of the closet will see the sunlight once again -- lacy sleeves and hemlines, pretty lengths of ribbon and feathery sweaters, sexy sheer tops and romantic skirts -- all only too perfect for moments spent lost in daydreams . . .

"Paris is always a good idea."
~ audrey hepburn

. . . hello! . . . things have been rather sporadic around here this week, with valentine's day on monday, finishing projects, last-minute preparations, and an ever-overflowing stream of emails, but most excitingly, cases to pack and a flight to catch, and now, a few beautiful days in paris . . .

uncertain when there next will be a moment to say hello, and so, for now, a fond farewell and à la prochaine,
