If I could spend all of my time immersed in flowers, I’m pretty sure I would be the happiest girl around.
I am so excited to share a recipe from the recently released Huckleberry cookbook. It seems that my phone hasn’t stopped ringing this year with calls from my LA-based friends telling me how much they love this place called Huckleberry and how so very good everything they eat there is, from the standard menu, to the changing items.

One of the most difficult parts of running a creative or arts-based business is just that – the business.
One of my favorite things about fall is the new crop of books out from publishers. And today, I thought I’d share some of my favorite recently (or soon to be) released illustrated books.
Let’s be honest, making changes to your flooring can be a little scary. After all, it involves moving all the furniture.
This weekend I found myself dreaming of having a home with a second floor. I’ve spent most of my life (and dorm years) living in single-floor apartments or homes, and there’s always been something so grand about the idea of a dramatic staircase leading to bedrooms or other spaces that are a good distance away from the noise and everyday sounds that happen in the living rom and kitchen.

Before Rebecca Crall and Eric Neagu found this apartment, they both lived in the Lincoln Square/Ravenswood area on the north side of Chicago.
After finishing college, but before settling down to a 9-to-5 life, Kelsi Vande Velden hit the road with her best friend on an epic road trip.
Every year fashion-lovers wait in anticipation of Vogue‘s epic September Issue. It’s the magazine’s huge issue full of trends and ideas for the full year going forward that’s become so legendary they even made a movie about it.
One of the most challenging parts of running an arts-based business is well, the business part. It’s certainly not the only hurdle, but I’ve found it’s one of the biggest and it always helps to get advice from people who have been doing it successfully for years.
