vacation & weekend inspiration



We packed up & started the first leg of our Hawaii trip, visiting my parents until we fly out this weekend. Yesterday, I checked out progress on an apartment house my parents own (it's 100+ years old), read an interesting book, and made everyone an indulgent dinner. And today, well...I plan to make cheesecake brownies. Hello, vacation!


Some pretty photos worth checking out from the creative blog, New House Project.

PS. more inspiring things: Jane Austen wedding inspiration, Air Force wife Andrea's blog, Krystle's round-up of pillows, and a fabric inspired cake.
Have a great weekend!

I really love New House Project. Didn't realize they lived in Japan until I read their "about" page. Isn't it funny how we all find ourselves somewhere completely unexpected and still find some roots to where we're from?

Enjoy your vacation!
