Boxwood decor items are the perfect accent for understated elegance. They bring elements of the outdoors to your interior living space, and add that welcome touch of greenery. I have several Boxwood wreaths and topiaries in various areas throughout my home.

For the last several days I have been dreaming of a relaxing beach vacay. I’m not sure whether our schedules will allow us to leave town anytime soon, but if we are able to get away I’ll need a new bathing suit! I love the look of black and white colorblock swimwear – it’s so simple, modern and chic!
We have been so busy the past few months. A long weekend someplace tropical would be the perfect way to relax and recharge. A few spa treatments wouldn’t hurt, either! Have you started planning your next getaway?
Here I have put together a resort-ready look featuring black and white colorblock swimwear that could be flattering at any age. Also see the suggestions below for other colorblock swimwear options, by age group.

Printable recipe for Easy Chicken Tortilla Soup at end of post
This winter has been extremely warm here in New Orleans. Not to mention, nasty – lots and lots of rain. When it does get cold here (between 40 and 50 degrees F is cold for us), it usually only lasts a day or two.
When we are fortunate enough to get a “cold snap”, I usually crave one of my favorite comfort foods – Chicken Tortilla Soup. There’s nothing like a satisfying bowl of soup on a cold night!

Back in December 2016, about a week after our holiday housewarming party, I wrote the thank you cards for our housewarming gifts. That day, I decided to discuss the topic of the handwritten note in a future post.
Unfortunately, the handwritten note is a bit of a lost art. We often forget the importance of sending a birthday card or hand writing a thank you note. Sometimes, life gets in the way. We often have good intentions but put off the task until it seems too late.
It’s hard to believe we are one month into 2017 already! Since Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, I put together this idea for a Valentine’s date night outfit. I love that this outfit incorporates two of my favorite trends – Over the Knee Boots and Faux Fur!
