Editor’s note: Elite Tahari dress with Roger Vivier flats. This is one of my Riley closet steals. As far as I am concerned .... if it never travels to New York it is fair game for Momma!!!!
Happy Monday!! It was a lovely and relaxing weekend... just what I needed! I did attend the reception honoring the death of my childhood friend’s mother on Saturday ... which of course was sad but it was nice to see high school friends again. I can’t believe we are all 59 with some turning 60 soon. My mother is right... your brain never feels older..... just your body changes. I like to think that we are all older and wiser!!!!! My Harrison made the first part of his move to Dallas on Saturday.... he will be all moved as of Friday. He is 26.... it is natural and right for him to be on his own.... but I treasured these two months of having him live with us. Breakfast is one of my favorite parts of the day.... and getting to visit with him in the morning is always a delight. As he has always been.... he has a lot to say about a lot of subjects. He loves football more that I do....which says a lot since I adore it... and his insight to players and contract negotiations is always fun and factual. He is a researcher... his big brain has to be filled all of the time. I love that boy!!!!! It was a special treat to have both Riley and Harrison home at the same time when Riley was home a few weeks ago. I know those days are numbered. I can’t be sad about it... life keeps moving and things evolve... just like they are supposed to do.
I feel like the world woke up in a big way today. It has been a crazy Monday full of decisions and planning. But I have always said Monday is the day full of possibilities...as opposed to Friday . If it has not been accomplished by Friday it has to go into the next week. So bring it on this Monday !!!! I am ready!!!!
Here are the Instagram Posts that caught my eye last week. Enjoy and have a superb and productive Monday!
This warmed my heart. Pure love.
I really had no idea that this funny and talented man was so troubled. This quote is so true.
Momma said no.... but he is 26 and a grown man. My Harrison skydiving. My response when it was over and he texted me he was ok........was simply Praise God!!!
Talk about a magical moment!!!
Is this happy dog precious or what!!!!!!
I have a piece of jewelry from this silver company. They reproduce antique monograms. This came from a German pillow sham. Gorgeous!
I am embarrassed to say that after living in New York and visiting every year since the 80s that I have never been in the public library. This room is awe inspiring.
Now THAT is a wall that speaks volumes!!!!!!!!
I have always loved a low white fence. I used to dream about a honeymoon cottage with a white picked fence at the edge of the front yard. This image evoked those memories.
A secret FABULOUS bar hidden behind deGournay wallpaper. Stunning!!
The lights on this dock ....the boats with their flags.... and the precious children full of curiosity. Happiness.
This restaurant is on the Champs Elysee’s in Paris. So Parisian... so charming... wish I was there!
Jackie was such a classy lady. She even makes a casual moment reading look glamorous.
The atmosphere that this restaurant exudes would make me happy to eat here even if the food was not good.
The churches in Rome are a marvel of the world. It would take me hours to analyze this ceiling. Absolutely incredible!!!!
I change the flowers on out table every weekend. I love this weeks combination!!!
Cheese board at Winslows.
