custom relaxation

Check out the amazing custom outdoor sofa that my husband built.  Yes, you read that right!

Stay tuned for final pics of the nearly completed outdoor space.

they call it city slick

For those who have not yet seen it, my Boston abode was published in this summer's Boston Home magazine.  Whoa!  Really.  Whoa.

CHECK IT OUT!  Wonderful photos by Trent Bell & story by Marni Katz
Thank you, thank you Boston Home!


falling behind

In true summer style, I am noticing that I am a full week or more behind in everything.  Catching up on emails, returning calls, visits with friends.  Um, not to mention designing!  While I put my clients first, I notice all needs are piling up on my desk and there is not a chance to ever get to the bottom.

I've been told that, like anything, you must schedule your life.  Taking care of oneself ensures that you can take care of others properly.  Meals must be had (and enjoyed), your body must be taken care of (walks, workouts, whatever you fancy), minds must be massaged (reading something other than contracts & estimates), creativity must be nurtured (in any way possible!).

What I would like is a magic scheduling app that prioritizes everything for me.  It seems that I am spending too much time scheduling and less time doing (Ugh - I sound like the Home Depot commercial that makes me cringe!)

At least I have been enjoying the view each weekend!
