Hello? Hi there!
Hello? Hi there! It’s been a long while, and I’ve so, so missed writing. I hadn’t had the time to focus on writing, since my last post on September 11. After some time freelancing, I landed a fantabulous role as the design editor at This Old House magazine. It’s been a revitalizing and exciting move for me. I love working on renovation projects, as well as missions, such as our new website dedicated to millennials titled, The Snug.
So, what has been happening on the life front since my last post? Here are a few visuals:

Zoe’s first pumpkin and apple picking excursion at Wilkens
Hiking in Mohonk where we gathered boughs and found baby pinecones. Before the winter, I bought Zoe a Hawke & Co winter coat. In the beginning, she would yelp out of nowhere at odd times. The reason remained a complete mystery to me until I took off the coat, and she looked like a plucked chicken. She was yelping because the quills were poking her. Those quill tips are sharp! This coat shed like this every time we took it off. A couple coming out of the coat makes sense but 20? Needless to say, I'm unhappy with this little torture chamber.
In December, we photographed Kimberlee Paige Hanson’s kitchen for the July issue. A gorgeous bowl of compost was sitting there when we arrived, and we begged Kimberlee not to toss it; Kimberlee’s weimaraner, Nutmeg asking for attention; a collection of utensils scored at flea markets; and I inadvertently made our stylist, Jennifer Vreeland work on her birthday.
