When I Grow Up

I'm back! Denver was absolutely amazing. Sarah and her husband were the most amazing hosts and I'm so glad I was able to see them again so soon after their visit to NY. I will tell you all about my Denver trip very soon. In the meantime, check out Sarah's last few posts about the trip.
I am so grateful to the ladies who let me go out of town without feeling guilty about leaving an empty blog behind. After doing my post on wanting to be Scottish when I grew up I decided to ask the girls filling in to do the same. I knew they would put together amazing posts. Plus, I wanted to see what everyone thought they would be because I'm nosey. I'm in absolute awe of the things these ladies did while I was on vacation. I loved their different takes, their outfits, and their heartfelt stories. Thank you so much for coming to see what they had to share. And thank you to Maria, Zoë, Jentine, Amanda, Terra, and Sarah for contributing!

Maria pulled off the most impeccable aviator. I always admire how perfectly her photographs capture the scene and feel of an outfit. I respect her for her own brave and adventurous spirit so this post could not have been more fitting. I was ecstatic when I opened these pictures on my layover to Denver and saw how incredible her take on The Aviator came together. Thank you Maria!
Zoë. What can I say, that isn't already screaming from these photographs. Moving, stunning, emotional. And then I met her and she was all those things in the flesh. I had "It Ain't Me Babe" in my head for days because of these words and these photographs. If it's possible, her post made me admire Bob Dylan more than I already do. I almost can't stand how cool she is. You can't ask for much more than that. Zoë, thank you. More coffee dates soon.

Well Jentine, I think you have put more red and more happy on my blog then there has ever been. I knew I could count on you for a brilliant and sincere story. As it turns out, we have quite a bit in common. I have no idea what I want to be, but I know that right now being happy for the rest of my life would be pretty darn amazing. I think we need to have a sit down so I can practice my happy with you. Thank you Jentine, I'm going to try much harder to do the happy dance because of you.

Amanda from Off of Broadway - sharing every little thing that we are wearing

Amanda had such a great idea for a post. While we often overlook this, I don't know many people who didn't look up to their older siblings growing up (those that had them). It's something that almost everyone can relate to and of course the following realization that no matter how hard we want to be someone else, we have to embrace who we are and the path our lives take. Thanks Amanda! You captured this feeling so well.

Terra did a wonderful job emulating the style of Molly Ringwald's character Andie from Pretty in Pink. There were so many great movie characters I wanted to be growing up, but I think Terra captured the sentiment so well when she said that all she really wanted was to be herself and for someone to love her just for that. It was that quality that I also admired in so many movie characters growing up. Thank you Terra! Movie watching marathon with you, Murphy and Lua soon!
And of course Sarah's post on how we met. I asked Sarah to write about how we knew each other. Sometimes it's hard to believe that we know bloggers before they were even blogging. Gasp! Sarah and I met while studying abroad in London and became great friends. We had and still have so many interests in common, which is why it's always so great to spend time with her. I will sing her praises more in the coming posts about visiting her and her husband in Denver!
I hope you all had a great few weeks while I was taking a little break. The NYC marathon is  this weekend so Lua and I are relaxing in the apartment trying to avoid the crowds. I did get to see the leading women and leading men groups run past this morning. Then some tea and breakfast on our new plates from an Anthropologie trip yesterday! Have a great Sunday and thank you again to my wonderful guest friends! May we all meet in the near future.

It was more than a pleasure to take the reins for a day. I was in the best company a gal could ask for, and it was really one of the funnest things I've done in recent memory.

And following Maria was also one of the most daunting tasks I've had in recent memory :)

Would love to see you again soon. Fingers are crossed for you and also in the hopes of a potential Denver stomping ground in the near future.

Cheers! To you!
