This weekend I visited family in New Haven, CT. My goal was to relax and eat as much as I could. Mission accomplished. On Saturday, my cousins (Brandon and Teal) had tennis practice, normally I would go, but my Aunt Karen and I decided to stay home and enjoy a little peace and quiet. I read the WSJ, I particularly loved the new "Off Duty" section spearheaded by Deborah Needleman (former editor in chief of domino magazine). All was complete with tea and little cookies. Later, I watched Brandon do magic tricks and Angels and Demons with Teal. Aunt Karen made a wonderful dinner: baked ham with a cherry glaze, macaroni and cheese, roasted sweet potatoes, okra, and blackberry cobbler for dessert. It was as good as it sounds.
Here I will be posting observations and inspirations related to design, magazines, fashion, food, Paris, and sunny days.
For my day job I am the deputy art director at Country Living magazine. I've worked at Interior Design, Fortune Small Business, and Domino magazines.
