my faves

If you’ve seen my instagram, you know that Joffrey Ballet Concert Group has arrived in Seaside!  It’s been an exciting few days.  I’m in ballet heaven.  When I started thinking about what to post for our mid week white (sorry I’m a little late), I thought it would be fun to share a few of my favorite things in life.  In no particular order.  So here goes…

1. Horses.  Anthro killing it with this image…a white horse in a beautiful room washed in whites, creams, and greys?!?  Dying.

2.  Ballet.  One of the most talented ballerinas of our generation, Diana Vishneva.  She is beyond amazing.  Google her on you tube sometime.  She’ll blow your mind.

3.  White exteriors.  This lovely, classic entrance.

4.  Beautiful design.  This amazing kitchen.


5.  Nature.  A master suite with an incredible view.  I would love to sleep there and enjoy an early morning cup of coffee looking at that view.  It doesn’t even look real.

I’m cutting out a little early this week to soak up Joffrey’s visit.  Davis Robertson has been a load of fun and I’m excited for another adventurous day.  Today they perform for our school…can’t wait!

Hope to see you Saturday night, 6:30pm at the Seaside amphitheater for the beautiful Joffrey Ballet Concert Group show!

interview: davis robertson of joffrey ballet concert group

This week Joffrey Ballet Concert Group arrives here in Seaside to perform their big show on Saturday, May 2nd at the Seaside Amphitheater.  The event is sponsored by the Merchants of SEASIDE® and is free to the public, so be sure to mark your calendars and join us for this wonderful show!  

I sat down with Joffrey Ballet Concert Group director, Davis Robertson, to chat about ballet, the company, and yes, even a little interior design.  I’m always fascinated to learn about a dancer’s aesthetic outside of the stage and studio.  While Davis is an accomplished dancer, choreographer, and artistic director, I can tell you that he’s also a dynamic and sincere person, bursting with creativity and charisma that can light up a room in mere seconds.  An innovator in the dance world, Davis has performed roles ranging from the Cavalier in Robert Joffrey’s The Nutcracker, to choreographer for names such as Mikhail Baryshnikov.


Please welcome Davis Robertson.

anniversary thoughts

Happy Anniversary to my best friend and love.  I was looking for a recent picture of us, but we don’t have any “alone” shots – only ones with kids, dogs, horses, or chickens.  While searching, I did find this one, taken on the beach at Seaside when our kids were still little and running all around the camera at the time it was snapped.  When I think of how many life experiences we’ve had since then, it makes me feel grateful to have a partner who is there to share in all the good, exciting, hilarious, scary, joyous, unexpected, romantic, adventurous, quirky, character-building, and sentimental moments of life.

And here we are many years later.  This was a sailboat we had chartered on a trip to Boston two years ago.  Not the best quality photo, but an amazing experience and memory.

wednesday white + wise words

You know I love a classic, white exterior.  I also love wise words…the ones that make you sit and think for a minute and totally reevaluate.  Today is one of those days you get both.  Ta da!  This Cape Cod home is much larger than you think – check out the tour over here.

Thought for the day is a good one.

wise words

I’ve been thinking about these words a lot lately.  We live in a society that is social-media-obsessed.  Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat, Vine, and countless others.  It’s easy to get sucked right in.  But with all of these methods of communicating, are we trying to be worth knowing or well known?  Something to ponder.
