a brand new week . . .

This weekend I cherished time at home because I’m traveling the rest of the month. I’m excited for the many journey’s ahead. So this weekend, although I had to work, I did a have a little time to enjoy the city – brunch with high school friends, did some treasure hunting at the flea market and finished off the weekend by celebrating my hubby’s birthday.

A few things that inspired me this week – the brand new issue of The Gentlewoman, fresh blooms, a necklace I’ve been wearing recently from Erica Tanov and a Picasso book I bought at the Alameda Flea market this weekend.

Tomorrow Eric and I are off to Mexico City (where I grew up) and Cuernavaca for my cousins wedding. Since Eric has never seen where I grew up I can’t wait to play tour guide – we’ll be walking the streets of Polanco, going to museums (I cannot wait to see the Freda exhibit), eating delicious food and seeing where the days take us. I can’t wait to be on the plane. The best part, I’m truly taking a vacation – no computer! There might be a few instagrams here and there but for the most part I’ll be offline.

Not to worry, I have a week’s worth of posts ready to inspire you while I’m away! Be sure to check back for a new yummy recipe, what I’m loving right now, and much more. Plus, if you haven’t entered the Poppy Barley Pin to Win giveaway – pop over to enter now. It’s a giveaway you don’t want to miss!

See you back here in a week!
