memorial day weekend!

i am thrilled beyond belief that this weekend’s a three-dayer…i seriously need a day off of work and finally, finally i get one! i love memorial day because it bookmarks the start of summer – maybe not the official start, but the start, at least to me, nonetheless. plus, it means that june is right around the corner, which means that my eight-day vacation in july is right around the corner. yay!

anyway, i have big plans for this weekend: dinner and drinks on siesta key tonight; celebrating my dear friend k.’s birthday tomorrow; boating (maybe) and catching up with friends on sunday; a beach walk and relaxing on monday. hooray. and speaking of monday, i doubt i’ll be posting that day – i think i’m going to give myself time off from blogging, too – but i’ll definitely be back on tuesday. until then, here’s a random list of things/links.

+ i picked up one of joy’s beautiful metallic notebooks for k. as part of her birthday present and i just have to say that the design is even more stunning in person than it appears on her web site. (if you’re local, you can purchase joy's stationery at write-on sarasota.)

+ did you guys catch the grey’s anatomy finale last night? to me, it was perfect – just like vintage, season-two grey’s. a roller-coaster of emotions, for sure, but in such a good way.

+ check out this beautiful design from eieio studio. i love it and just may have to invest in it when it starts selling. (the photograph is via design*sponge; if you’re looking for some eye candy this weekend, check out grace’s photographs and coverage of bklyn designs, surtex, icff and – my personal favorite – the national stationery show. perhaps i can get a press pass for next year’s…how cool would that be?)

+ apartment therapy has a great house tour up on its site today. here’s the link. the photo below is a little sneak peek of the goodness that abounds. (ps: the homeowners’ puppy, morty? adorable.)

that’s all – what are your plans for the long weekend? whatever they are, i hope you have a wonderful, restful, rejuvenating one! xx.
