of sea and sky

over here, we’re riding that wonderfully hopeful transition of winter into spring. every few days the skies cloud over and the air stays cool and gray, but it’s never too long before a new wind blows through, bringing fresh warmth and delicious sunlight.

until spring shines through in all its most vivid hues, i’m finding myself dreaming in shades of blue – the color of these cool mornings and mild days.

love love

i tend to think a lot of what goes along with valentine’s day isn’t all thaaaat romantic, but i fully embrace it as an excuse to be unabashedly girly and shamelessly, over-the-top sweet.

my party-planning partner-in-crime and i have already dreamed up a dessert party with heart-shaped cutouts of pound cake to be dipped in chocolate fondue, pink-frosted sugar cookies showered with sprinkles, and marshmallow hearts to plunk in hot mugs of cocoa. like i said: over-the-top sweet.

will we really pull it off? will any males come within 10 feet of the festivities? that remains to be seen, but – as it is with the lovely finds below – the fun is in getting inspired.
