We’ve had a great time these last few weeks in West Palm Beach.  It’s sort of strange being home, but not actually sleeping in or visiting your own house. Not at all bad, just strange. There were so many times when I was around our neighborhood and thought, “let me swing around the block and see the house” …but I never bothered. No need to stir up emotions or feelings on things I can’t change. For now, I just wanted to visit the place we left last October — the place that will be home again in a few more months, to see friends, family, and visit the beach often too. I liked this time we had, visiting home.

palm beach walks // beach dates with two girls who desperately missed the beach (and each other).

flowers, palm trees, and sunshine. arguably the best things in the world.


a blurry breakfast eating home-school doing girl. Ps. My SIL painted that Frida— how talented is she?!

the most beautiful little girl in the world. // me and the lily pads.

oh man, it’s 9 in the morning but man oh man could I go for some veggie roti wraps right now. and fresh cocos always.

will stop and photograph flowers. honestly, just grateful to wear shoes without socks and jeans with holes in the knees again haha.

last nights sleepy dinner date.

Marlowe and I had the worst flu/cold/thing this past week. This viral thing was going around and I thought we were in the clear, but.I guess a good day spending an hour too long in the freezing rain but us over the edge. We got it too. We did fight it off quicker than a lot of the other people I know who caught it, but we’re still on half speed because of it. Regardless, We are out of the food in the fridge this week (and don’t want to buy more because we leave in two days) so a post beach dinner outing it is! No complaints here.

the look I get when she sees the camera on her. Sorry kid.

the beach, the most wonderful healing place.

sushi days! we had planned a park dinner date and Alex made this amazing tray of sushi for it. But at the last-minute everything sort of fell through so the three of us shared a platter of sushi inside. Still tasted delicious. And I still over-ate. 
The most gorgeous floors. Inspiration for sure. We’re hoping to make some changes and upgrades to our real house when we finally get back to it. I’m trying not to talk about it too much about it yet, only because I’m excited and I don’t want to get over-excited and wait forever. But for sure, it is one great thing to look forward to when we get back. I know I don’t talk design on here much anymore– I have my reasons, but we’re definitely planning on working on some fun projects in the future 🙂

But ANYWAY! Enough about that. Our time here was really good. Really really good. I know most places in the United States seem to be having an eternal winter, but we’re enjoying it here in south florida. We’ve had our windows open everyday– which is rare for this time of the year. Maybe it’s the universe’s way of saying “here this year was rough on you– take your favorite simple pleasure, enjoy it” and I am— enjoying it

The only tough parts about coming home were getting sick this last week, it definitely cut our time with friends and family down. We haven’t been able to spend as much time with our friends and family as we hoped. I mean, we saw a ton of them don’t get me wrong, but I’d love more time! But soon, for sure.

For now, we’re off. Today and then tomorrow are our last days and then we’re flying south. I don’t know what to expect from our time in Mexico, but I am so very much looking forward to it. There was a moment yesterday where I looked at Marlowe and almost cried, because thinking about spending so much time mexico made me emotional, in the best way. Her life is so rad— and I get to live it with her. I’m grateful.

Alright friends, I have to answer emails, finish projects with upcoming deadlines, and pack up our things today! I hope you’re well and enjoying the little moment in front of you. These are certainly some of our favorite little moments here right now 🙂


  1. you reminded me how its been way too long since we’ve been to the beach!

    • Andrea

      Right? My only concern is that there I s A LOT of brown and I wonder if I would start to resent the brown if it covered my entire floor haha.

  2. Your sushi ❤️ It is factually impossible to eat only the “right” amount of sushi. Overeating sushi is actually the only way to eat it 😘

    • Andrea

      I think you’re right. Except I think you can also under eat it too. I often times leave dinner thinking, maybe I should have ordered an extra roll haha. Much better when we make it at home.

  3. You mean shoes without socks right? Cause walking around with socks without shoes would be weird

    • Andrea

      I woke up at 5 am today. its 10 pm now and its already a long day. I’m ready for bed, haha.
