Happy Friday! We hope everyone had a great week.  We are happy to be back to our “normal” routine over here after a couple weeks of travel.  We know Henry appreciates all the extra cuddles that we’re more than happy to provide.  Our travel schedule will resume in just two weeks, so we are definitely not taking these quiet days for granted at all.  At the end of the month we will be heading to London for a week before traveling to Seattle for the Create & Cultivate Conference.  It will be a busy time for us, so we are working our butts off to try to get things ready for our Casita demo start date which is only ten days away now.  The details are being ironed out and that project is just about to get under way.  This weekend we will be seeing some friends, hopefully a movie, and running our usual errands around town.  We finally have some cooler mornings and nights over here, so we’re going to enjoy every minute of them.  Below are some of our favorite links and shopping finds from around the web this week.  Enjoy!

Live from New York… Ha! We switched coasts this week and headed from San Francisco to New York City for a fun project and dinner we attended last night on Ellis Island.  Sometimes life hands you some really amazing things and you just say thank you and enjoy every minute of it.  We’ve had a good week going from coast to coast, seeing some family while in New York and getting to go home to our house tonight to see our pup. He’s been partying hard with his best friend back in Phoenix.  😉 We’re excited to slow down for a couple weeks before heading back out on the road (or sky) at the end of the month.  We love our home in Phoenix, but definitely don’t mind missing a few weeks here and there during the summertime.  We have a few hours left here in SoHo before hopping on our flight tonight, so we’ll catch you guys on the other side of the weekend.  Have a good one and enjoy some links we’ve compiled over the week after the jump!

Greetings from San Francisco! We decided to skip town for the next few days to the Bay Area.  We’ve been indoors for much of the last month and it’s been so refreshing to spend some time outside, walking from shop to shop, and sitting on park benches just people watching and sight seeing.  We’ve been drinking all the coffee SF will offer us and thinking about heading over to the SFMOMA today to grab a few things for our home. It’s been over a year since our last time in San Francisco  and we’re thrilled to be visiting our favorite spots all over again, in addition to so many we missed out on.  If you’ve been here before we don’t have to hype this city up, but if you haven’t… we definitely recommend spending some time here. (You can view last year’s city guide here.)  This is one of our favorite American cities to explore and we’d love to make this trip more often from here on out.  We’ve been out and about most of our time here so far,  we’ve found some great links around the web plus some favorite items, while getting in our caffeine fix.  Enjoy!

Palm Springs Summer 2017

Every year we spend a few days in Palm Springs. It’s not really an escape, temperature wise, but there’s nothing like a change of scenery to feel creative and refreshed. We found a beautiful Airbnb and spent the weekend shooting some fun projects, BBQing, and hanging poolside with Henry. He wasn’t a fan of the pool, which crushed our pet-parent hearts, ha!, but it was really nice having him on a little trip with us, even if it was just a few hours away. Here’s a few photos we snapped that weekend… READ MORE

Reformation bathing suit (love this one and this one too!)

 We had such a fun week! It’s been so exciting to plan out everything that’s happening with the Casita and surrounding landscaping in our backyard.  We’ve been working closely with our contractor to make a space that is functional and purposeful and they’re almost ready to begin working on it.  We can’t wait to share that process!  This week we saw Ingrid Goes West at our local Alamo Drafthouse and War for the Planet of the Apes with our pals Leah & Matt and Brendan, so it’s definitely safe to say we had a good week.  I can’t remember the last time we saw two movies in one week. Thursday we worked on a really fun project for Darling Magazine with our friends Fawn DeViney and Priscilla Urrutia. It will be coming this fall and we will keep you up to date with all those details. Arizona has some pretty talented folks and it was really special getting to work together with them on such an intimate project. We’re really excited about seeing it all come together.  Next week we’ll be heading out of town to some much cooler weather and this weekend we’ll be getting things ready for that trip.  Here’s to another good one! Below we’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite links from around the web, as well as some favorite items we’ve been eyeing lately.  Enjoy!

July Book Round-Up with Audible

Happy Wednesday! We’re back with another monthly book round up with Audible. Around this time of year I’m almost always brought back to the required summer reading lists we had as kids in school. From what I hear they are not too prevalent nowadays, but we’d have a few books to pick from and I’d head to the bookstore with my mom and sisters. I can remember walking into the cool air conditioned store and the kids’ story corners adorned with the most brightly colored books. I always was excited, even if the required books wouldn’t have been my first pick. I was the type of kid who loved new school supplies and even cried when I had to stay home from school because I was sick, (I’m talking grade school here) but that could be a story for a whole other post. Ha! Summer reading brings back memories of hanging by the town pool with my family, eating sandwiches and snacks we packed that morning before leaving the house, and laying under the umbrella with a mystery story or suspenseful book of some sort.

Hello from Palm Springs! We headed out of town for the weekend to relax by the pool with our pup, get a change of scenery and just because we love Palm Springs in the summer.  I remember years ago when our friends Tim & Merrill mentioned how they would visit PS in the summer because it felt like they had the city to themselves and always stayed somewhere with a pool.  Here we are now…fully taking their advice.  It’s perfect.  Thanks for the tip guys! 😉 It’s not just all relaxin’ over here though.  We’ll be shooting some fun projects that will be coming to the blog soon.  Speaking of projects!  Make sure to head to the blog on Monday morning for our living room reveal.  We’re so excited to finally share the space and all the details here on the blog.  Until then…we hope you have a great weekend!  Keep reading for our favorite links of the week below.  Enjoy!

Our Home: Update

Lifestyle Photography Classic American Home Decor

To say we’ve been living in this house for eight months really blows our minds. It felt like the home buying process took foreverrr, and then shortly after we moved in we quickly celebrated the holidays and then had a bunch of travel lined up. Just recently this house has begun to feel more like our home. From Sunday morning plant watering rituals and weekday dinners at home to the basket filled corner with Henry’s toys and shelves covered in books, we have our space and our routine and nothing has felt sweeter. It’s been quite a bit since we’ve done a formal update on our house. We’ve shared our renovation process for our kitchen and both bathrooms (master | hallway), as well as the plan for our soon-to-be casita, but as each room begins to take shape, we thought we’d share a little about the rest of the house and where we’re at right now.

We’ve had a crazy week over here.  So much going on! We are starting work on our Casita real soon and that means transferring everything in there to our newly constructed shed.  It’s not the most exciting thing to be doing in the summer heat, but we are so ready to make this Casita happen.  It’s so fun to watch everything starting to come together.  Last night, we hosted a small happy hour with friends at one of our favorite spots in Phoenix, North Italia.  If you follow along with us on Instagram and Instagram stories you’ve probably seen us enjoying some calamari and pasta there.  It’s the best! This weekend we are getting our living room camera ready!  We are so close to sharing the space here on the blog, so keep an eye out for that reveal coming soon.  It’s been a long time coming!  We hope you all have an amazing weekend!  We want to thank everyone for the kind messages, DM’s, and emails about this post.  It’s truly meant everything to us and it’s that exact reason why we love sharing our personal story with you.  Cheers to the weekend!  Here are some of our favorite links from around the web this week.  Enjoy!
