Hydrangeas | Capitol Hill

Biased as I am, I thought the Cape & Islands had the hydrangea game on lock until I encountered these stunners on a walk this weekend–Capitol Hill: 1. We’re headed up to the Cape on Friday to celebrate the Fourth with my family so I’ll do my due diligence and report back.

June has gone by way too quickly, wouldn’t you agree? I think a summer to-do list is in order. First up, I need to add some books to my reading list. Have I mentioned I’m attempting to read 52 books in 2015? Currently I’m 5 books behind schedule (damn you Netflix) but I know I’ll be able to make up for lost time while on vacation.

What are you reading and loving these days? I’ve been reading a ton of business books/biographies so I think it’s time for something a little lighter. I’ve seen this work its way into more than a few Instas and I’ve been meaning to pick up a copy of this, but what else should be on my radar?

The Pursuit of Style

The past few weeks have been crazy in the very best of ways. When this weekend rolled around all I wanted was a pair of sweatpants and a DVR full of my favorite shows.

I was actually a little disappointed when I found out we wouldn’t be getting snow like the majority of the Northeast, but now I’m feeling incredibly grateful not to be among the 630,000+ people without power–my parents and grandparents on the Cape included. Stay safe and warm!

After getting my laziness fix I ventured out for some other self indulgent essentials: fresh flowers and an almond croissant. I’ll happily settle for a fluffy white bouquet if it’s the only white out my apartment will be seeing this winter.
Side note: there’s the infamous tortoise ice bucket I’ve mentioned (obsessed over) before.

Our golden retriever, Brody, took complete advantage of the extra few hours I spent lounging in bed. I’m not entirely convinced his half on/half off position could be comfortable, but he seemed to be enjoying it!

How was your weekend? Were you lazy like me, or were you tackling a never ending to-do list?
