Peace, Love, Grace

The holidays are a time we especially remember those that live on in our hearts and memories.

Grace McDonnell, one of the children lost in the Sandy Hook tragedy last year, spent her summers on Martha's Vineyard. Her dream was to grow up and live on the island as a painter.

Although I never met Grace or her family, together we share a love for this special place. A brick commemorating Grace lies beneath the Edgartown Lighthouse as part of the Children's Memorial.

Peace, Love, Grace

Gifts for the Jetsetter

My travel savvy friend lent me her dual voltage straightener, adapter and waterproof camera for my trip to Bora Bora earlier this year. I hear horror stories of straighteners melting abroad... be prepared!

You can see a few of the underwater photos I took on the camera here. This same jetsetter clued me in on a Living Social deal for a 10 foot long iPhone charger cable For $10... I use it all the time now! I hope the deal goes back live again because it was the best price I found besides eBay. It's especially great when you are staying in a hotel and there is no nearby or free outlet by the bed.

The Longchamp tote is perfect for both work and play since it fits a laptop and magazines. The cashmere scarf and candles are luxuries I would love to have for my next trip.

Happy Gifting!

Gifts for Him

By request a gift guide for the guys. This was post was almost Ted approved... he said I should add a set of golf clubs. The most unique stocking stuffer I came across was the Double IPA Lip Balm for $6.50.

Meet Daisy

Meet Daisy

This is my parents sweet new puppy, Daisy. She made an appearance on Instagram as Penny before we changed her name. She is a Shetland Sheepdog, better known as Sheltie. Wild Daisy is quite the handful. It didn't take her long to gnaw on my favorite boots that I should have never left unattended. Ted and I had fun playing with her over the holiday.

We had a quick photo op before I went to my 10-year high school reunion. I got my hair highlighted and cut earlier that day... wish I could take credit for those curls. Time for me to practice!


Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving. I'm up late trolling the Cyber Monday sales... these were a few of the standouts.
