Honeymoon Edition: Positano

Positano was one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever imagined. The cliffside villas, the clear water, the pebble beach. Everyone was incredibly friendly and I brushed up on my college Italian. It felt like we were in the middle of a postcard and it almost makes me sad to look at the pictures because it was such a lovely time. We ate gobs of pizza and gelati. We sat in the sun and slept in late. We walked the narrow streets – Positano centers around one beach and our hotel (Buca di Bacco) was on it. There are roads that take you all the way down but 200 yards from the beach they become too narrow for cars. We had to walk the rest of the way down and have our bags portered.
Our room opened up onto a balcony and we had two chairs so we could sit and people-watch.

Moving & Marrying

As of Friday morning (the same day I woke up at 4am to watch the royal wedding) there was nothing packed in either Robert’s or my house. As of today, we are living in the new house. So… a lot went down over the last few days. There was rain, there was 40 degree weather, there were floods and not everything is complete… BUT! we spent the night there last night! I cannot put into words the relief I feel today as I think about my new home with the guy I love and our little doggies. More to come about decorating and the like…

I hope you had a good weekend!

Home (Dreams & Musings)

Jan/Feb 2010

I’m house-hunting again. Robert and I are trying to find a place for June 1 and I’m getting antsy. I’m hoping for a big backyard, a front porch, a cozy kitchen and lots of closet space. We’ll see what we end up with. Here are some (dream) spaces I’m loving…I’m trying to keep in mind I’ll be living with a boy. It should be interesting. All images via decor supersite Lonny.

Five Things

Today I’m feeling especially grateful for the ins and outs of everyday life – the beautiful weather, my loved ones, my health. Tragedy hits us all in unexpectedly poignant ways. We never know when a routine experience can change our lives forever. It’s important to savor happy moments and tell people how much you appreciate them. Here are five things I’m thankful for today.

(Spring)

(Love)

(Friends)

(Family)

Lady in Red

Wouldn’t this be perfect for V-day? I’ve been reading a lot lately how most men absolutely abhor Valentine’s day. Why? Is it really that bad? I understand it’s hard if you’re alone but what do those who are with someone hate so much about it. Feeling lucky that my main squeeze doesn’t mind taking me to dinner. I understand that it’s a BS holiday and that people shouldn’t show their love on only one day but I really don’t mind the standing dinner invite. It also happens to be our decided anniversary.

NYC/The Dress

NYC was wonderful. It was fabulous to be with friends and family and I felt very spoiled. I’m a bit exhausted today but so thrilled that I found the dress!

A few pictures from the trip…

The Proposal

freja-harry-winston

We’re engaged! I am still in shock, completely. My sweet (fiancé – gahhh!) Robert asked me to get hitched on Friday night. I was totally surprised. My mom was in on it and lured me out to the Fayetteville square on the guise of taking family photos. He was completely caught off guard when the square was full of people, horse-draw carriages and even camels. We started walking around and he told me I was the love of his life – to which I said “you’re the love of my life too babe!” I did not get it until he dropped to one knee. I couldn’t believe it and collapsed onto him, hugging him. We are out-of-this world excited. His family honored me with his Great-Grandmother’s ring. Many more details to come!
