Wedding Bliss On Martha’s Vineyard

I was honored to be in attendance and to take some photos at my dear friend Kristy’s wedding on Martha’s Vineyard last month. I met Kristy over 10 years ago when I was working at a Crisis Management service provider and she was at an airline. As with many of my clients from those days, Kristy and I became friends and have continued our friendship through other jobs and life paths. Kristy and her now husband Noel’s story is one of true love, international long distance love at that, and perseverance. I’ve never been so happy or emotional at a wedding in my life. These two are the perfect couple and worked hard to get to their special day.

The last few weeks have been a bit challenging for many and with the media full of emotional stories, I wanted to send out a little love today, in my own style.

This photo was taken on South Beach on Martha’s Vineyard. Using sparklers, Kristy, Noel and the two boys Sam and Christopher spelled love for all the world to see.  Kristy requested I include this, as it was a major theme at the wedding. #LoveWins

Yes, Kristy, you helped prove that!

And just like my trip to Amsterdam last year and my #LoveLettersToAmsterdam theme, I have a lot of love for Martha’s Vineyard so here is my #LoveLetterToMarthasVineyard. An Impressionist photography image from Edgartown Harbor.

Thank you Martha’s Vineyard for the beauty and magic you always share.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Color on,

Earth Day Gratitude

Good morning! It’s Earth Day and I awoke to news of potential lead in our water supply. NOT a great way to honor Mother Earth and all the beauty she brings to us!  Most of you know how much I love water.  I love to look at it, swim in it, take pictures of it…and recently I discovered that my natural personality energy is Water. Not surprising really!  I discovered my “Waterness” through a fun new Doodle activity I do in Doodle Discover YOU! If you want to find yours you can check out my Doodle e-course or upcoming workshop.

So with my ever-strong connection with water, I’d like to celebrate this Earth Day with some of my favorite water-based photos from some of my favorite places! I hope you enjoy this little mind vacation to the “waterfront.”

Rock Your Color

Why is it that Monday sometimes feels like the waves are crashing over us and trying to hide our colors?

Not gonna happen! 😉

How fun is this rock? I found it on a beach on Martha’s Vineyard. I can imagine the artist sitting in the sand with the beautiful light painting an inspiring seascape, the rock a natural palette for color.

Surf’s up…
Rock your colors!

Color On,

Without “Color”

We’re COLORing without color today…

My final day on Martha’s Vineyard a few months ago was a bit cold and dreary. I stopped off at a marina by the Beach Club and got this shot of the wood beach club buildings.

After downloading, black & white felt like the way to go to highlight the textures and lines and really bring in the serene feel of the moment.

The world is interesting and fun even when it’s lacking “color”!

Dreams, Boats, and Jonathan Adler…

Maybe a strange combination….maybe not….A few of my favorite colorful inspirations for the week.

I discovered the colorfully talented Jessica Swift on Facebook this week.  I love her story and her big, colorful dreams!!  Check it out below and send her a little color love (in the form of green) if you can!  I’d like to wear these boots one day.  She’s a color diva after my own heart with secret messages hidden in the boots.  I had a similar, yet very different, idea for my pillow line.  THAT you’ll have to wait for…

I saw this awesomely whimsical, right up my alley harbor decor idea on Apartment Therapy this week.  LOVE IT!  The big question for me….does the inside show…or the BOTTOM?  I have the perfect boat in mind for my ceiling.  I can find it on Martha’s Vineyard!

 

Apartment Therapy

 

 

A favorite boat on Martha's Vineyard!

 

 

 

Jonathan Adler has a new limited edition furniture collection.  I’ll take these two for my next home office.  Punctuate with some orange accents (like an orange Moroccan pouf…also available from Jonathan Adler) and my creative life will be completely fulfilled!

 

 

 

And finally, this is definitely my favorite color of the week. This wall paint has my name written ALL over it! HEAVENLY!

 

House To Home

 

 

Interestingly enough, they would all go nicely in a house together.  THAT was a coincidence.

I hope you are having a colorful week and are finding your color inspiration in the world around you!
