taking stock | march’s end

making / tacos. it is just that time of year when all i want is a meal of chips and salsa and spicy things. washed down with an icy margarita. extra lime, please. hold the salt.
cooking / is a family affair right now. and eating is an al fresco one. hashtag spring.
drinking / rosé all day. a.k.a. summer water. and p.s. the girls behind the amazing yes way rosé brand have partnered with club w and launched a real-deal pink drink that is actually called SUMMER WATER. bravo. too good. and it is currently holding us over until our springtime wine shipment arrives…
reading / style guides. a year in provence (again). kind emails from friends.
wanting / all the coffee. and all the water. and all the bread. and all the gingham.
looking / at my planner…into fall and into spring 2017. already. gotta have a plan!
playing / with bouncy balls. ridley pounces on them like a little cat.
wasting / paper. lists and plans and art abound.
sewing / not as much as last month but i got a little creative with some free-quilting and plan to bind that baby soon. excited to share more about completed projects and next projects…
wishing / that i could control things. but grateful that i can’t.
enjoying / my morning flow sessions. and dance + barre class.
waiting / and waiting and waiting and waiting. and waiting some more.
liking / being silly and acting like a (wannabe) youngster over on snapchat (for anyone who cares, i am madameswanky over there). i am definitely not cool enough or born in the right decade enough to be there but, #YOLO (and all those other sayings that again, i am not young enough to be saying). plus, elinor thinks the funny face filters are a crack-up. i dunno. it’s just a big, goofy partyville there. and who couldn’t use more of that in the everyday? play is good. “a little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men.” i think dahl would approve. p.s. thank goodness for a teenage sister-in-law who rolls her eyes at my lameness and schools me on what the cool kids are doing. keeping me young(ish).
hoping / that some exciting things come to fruition.
marveling / at God’s kindness and sweetness and provision. He is a good God, indeed.
smelling / citrus everything and rose everything. and sneezing far too much.
wearing / high-waisted jeans + slouchy vintage linen white shirt. a.k.a. my spring uniform. by the way, this high-waisted trend…your thoughts? jury’s still out over here.
noticing / how grown-up ridley is looking. some of that baby fat is thinning out and revealing a little dude bod. freaking time and its relentlessness. 
knowing / that i am blessed beyond measure.
thinking / about vacation plans and next stages of life and just life in general. adulting is hard sometimes. SO. MANY. DECISIONS.
feeling / inspired. hopeful. stuck. in limbo. ready. eager. happy. relaxed. perplexed. grateful. rejuvenated. content. so, feeling all the feelings.
bookmarking / furniture and design inspiration. looking forward to pulling the trigger on some things soon.
opening / the world’s biggest box from amazon. why they ship a box of toilet paper and a box of paper towel with other boxed items inside of a massive outer box, i’ll never know. thinking about converting it to a play-land for elinor and ridley…
giggling / at brit humor.
