This is one of the trees in our back yard.  This time of year, it's prettier than ever with those colorful pollinated stamens.  I love all the tropical plants in our back yard.  We have bamboo, palm trees, passion flowers and an avocado tree.  Very Florida.

Cute Dog Tricks

Shannon came over the other day with her Yorkie, Peyton.  He's got a thing about his paws, wouldn't you say?

My mom and her bf Tony brought us a giant cucuzza squash from their garden.  Apparently, it wasn't even their biggest squash.  Zach chopped it up and put it into the most amazing stew with spicy Italian sausage and grilled polenta.  So delicious.  



What are you up to this weekend?  Zach and I are heading to a house party in a few.  

Have a great day!  Xx

My New 'Do!

You like!?  I chopped off a lot of the length, added layers and scrunched my wet hair with product for this curly look.
I was sick of wearing my hair in a bun every day to work and wanted an easy 'do that didn't require me to straighten my hair (which is a 20-minute ordeal).  My hair is naturally curly, but it gets super frizzy, so I got a haircut and a lesson on the proper way to keep (some of) the frizz out.

Florida at Its Finest

Here are a few shots from my recent girls' weekend in Sarasota at the Ritz Carlton.  We celebrated a friend's big move to Washington, DC... in style.  

Our friend made us gift boxes with home-made bracelets, magnets and macaroons.  :) 

Sam, Trista and Suzette.

A Sweet Gesture

The other day I was heading to the grocery store and I asked Zach for his grocery list.  He requested a birthday card for a five-year old boy.  Turns out this boy has terminal cancer, and all he wanted for his birthday was lots of birthday cards.  One of our favorite websites picked up the story and Zach decided to send the boy a card.  Sweet, right?

That's my man!  Love him <3
