Welcome to my latest view–an effort to share the city with you and get my photos off of my phone and into…somewhere (read: slowest album creator ever).

I’m discovering new places and views weekly on purpose and by accident. That is one of the things I love most about this city. You never know what experiences you’ll have even as you’re walking around doing your daily thing.

Fall is here, so I’m saying goodbye to summer with a few of my favorite views from the season.

It’s been waiting for you.

The thing is, I felt like it was when we arrived.

New York City–the land of over 8 million people–felt like it was waiting for us.

One day, maybe I’ll tell you the details of our journey to New York; but let’s just say it started four years ago at Amsterdam Ale House in the Upper West Side, when Jonathan and I looked at each other and said, “What if we lived here?”

We’ve only been here a month, but we’ve been surprised and grateful at just how at home we are in the city that never sleeps.

I took some time away from writing and this blog, but it is my hope to write again–this time about the things that inspire me in our new city.

Welcome to our little life in the big city.

my latest buzz

In case you missed it, Laurel’s beautiful baby bee shower was featured on Inspiration Mississippi!

This is my favorite pic from the day. Laurel was truly glowing!

This shower was definitely a Fall highlight. We were thrilled to get to celebrate with Laurel as she prepared for the arrival of her sweet babe (we love you, baby Wilson)!

In honor of her love for bees, we decided a bee-themed shower would be perfectly appropriate.

We even incorporated her hand-drawn (lovely bee) bee into the invitation:

I was excited to be interviewed about the details and the process, and I enjoyed working with all of the lovely hostesses! Our friend, Jessica Holmes, made the adorable baby bee banner in the above photo. It was one of my favorite touches!

Head on over to Inspiration Mississippi for the interview and more pics from the day!

I’ve been a busy little bee lately with design work. So busy that I have not had time to update you on my latest buzz, but grateful for the work! Music keeps me going when I have those big blocks of design time (and when I get stressed), so I’ve been listening to a lot lately.

My husband makes fun of my melancholy girl music sometimes, but what can I say? I love it.

Here are some tunes to check out. Some are older; some are newer. All are quality. Start your new playlist now. Chill. Spend some time with the girls.

Florence and the Machine has quickly become one of my all-time favorites. I can’t get enough of her music.
{Florence + the Machine}
Track: Addicted to Love
Listen to this track

Adele. You are fabulous. You’ll be one of the classic singer-songwriters from my generation. You go girl.

I positively adore this song. It has an MTV Unplugged sound. She might have even played this one on her Unplugged set. I need to check that out…

{Adele}
Track: Crazy for You
Listen to this track

Cat Power. She’s just so cool. That sums up what I think of her. This CCR remake is stellar. It’s a must-have for your music collection.

{Cat Power}
Track: Fortunate Son
Listen to this track

Telepopmusik. I like the sound of this band. This song marries an electronic vibe with a dramatic, sweeping and super romantic undertone. Is it weird that it makes me think of the whole Kristen Stewart/Robert Pattinson situation? Or is that just a sign that I have been watching too much E! News? Sigh…still so sad about those two.

{Telepopmusik}
Track: Don’t Look Back
Listen to this track

Zero 7. This song is an oldie, but a goodie (circa 2001). There’s something about the sound of this British duo and Sia Furler that just puts me at ease…

{Zero 7}
Track: Destiny
Listen to this track

You can’t have a girl-tunes party without Fiona, right? She’s a tortured soul, but I’ve always been incredibly impressed with her. She deep, soulful, and yes, sometimes dark. Okay, maybe that last description is an understatement, but she’s talented beyond belief. That’s for certain.

{Fiona Apple}
Track: Paper Bag
