Morning All!! I hope you had a nice weekend :) Brian and I had a nice one bopping back and forth between NYC and Connecticut with a birthday party on a friend's awesome Union Square roof deck on Friday night and the Jets vs. Bills game at Metlife Stadium with friends on Sunday. Saturday was raining and I was surprisingly so grateful for that -- it was sooo nice to just relax indoors without feeling the guilt of not being outside on a nice day. We left the TV off and just laid around, read and listen to music together - we NEVER have time like that and we both really enjoyed it. We stayed in and cooked a nice dinner, too - rigatoni in a pink sauce with sausage and peas paired with a nice bottle of red - delicioso!

Onto the good stuff -- are y'all on instagram? I'm kind of obsessed and one of my favorite people to follow is Lizzy from I Heart Sunny Days. Lizzy lives in Australia right on the Great Barrier Reef on the border of the World Heritage Daintree Forest and her photos are absolutely amazing:

Can you believe this is all in her backyard? Amazing. You can find Lizzy here:

also, so cool - her instagrams are on sale here if you want them in the flesh :) 

Lastly, I wanted to give you all the heads up and invite you to an exciting tweet chat I'm hosting this Wednesday night at 8 PM EST on twitter along with Wayfair and Coastal Living magazine on how to add coastal touches to your home in a tasteful way.  I hope you'll join in using #homemakerhappyhr to be a part of the chat!

 Have a great day :) 


  1. Just wanted to thank you once again for featuring me and my Instagrams! I'm so lucky that I live in such a beautiful part of the world. Sounds like you had a wonderfully relaxing weekend :)

  2. That second photo shot of a wave on shore is the most INCREDIBLE, BEAUTIFUL one i have ever seen! i can hear it, feel it and smell the air around it! you have a gift, thanks for sharing!

  3. love the pics! Sad I missed you at the Jets game - if only i saw your instagram picture earlier!

  4. Lizzy is one of my favourites on Instagram too. I live in the same beautiful sunny state as she does but in it's capital city which is way further south. We do have beautiful beaches in Queensland. I'd love a holiday up Lizzy's way one day as it's a particularly beautiful part of the world.

  5. Great photos - I am hanging out for summer - we have just hit Spring so another couple of months!
