Walks With Eleanor

Now that the weather here is nicer, we’ve been trying to go for a walk every evening when I get home from work – and I’ve been really loving it! It’s a nice way for me to unwind after sitting indoors at the office all day and Eleanor seems to sleep a bit better when she’s had a healthy dose of after dinner fresh air. She’s started to notice dogs and squeals with glee whenever we pass one. Usually I get home and toss on some walk appropriate clothes and take Eleanor in her carrier (as in the first photos) but I got home a bit later than usual one day so we just put Eleanor in her strolled and I went out wearing my work clothes; in this instance it worked out well because it provided the opportunity to get some blog photo outdoors in natural light.

I love this shirt so much – it’s sort of like this coated lace material that looks vaguely like black snakeskin – but little bits of always fall off whenever I move in it, so it’s basically like chronically shedding which makes wearing it a bit of a pain. Anyone have any thoughts on how I could prevent that?

All the Frills: Home Gallery

Here are some close ups of our redone gallery wall. There used to be a huge bookshelf here but we moved that out of the way, got this narrow accent table to anchor everything on the wall and then went to town in terms of hanging these. I love the way it turned out!

Worn to the opera – I usually go to the opera a few times a year with my father but, with Eleanor on the scene, it’s been about a year since I’ve made it to a performance. Needless to say, it was lovely to get dressed up a bit and see the show (Don Giovanni, in this instance ... which has a super weird vibe in the #MeToo era).

Winter's Now Forgotten Death Grip

I took these photos in mid-April when it was basically still winter here (winter had a real death grip this year and basically just lasted until close to the end of April, as I've now mentioned a few times...God, I'm boring). Now that it’s warm out I’m looking forward to talking Eleanor for lots of walks and to the park and the zoo and just a whole host of other outdoor activities that we can now finally start to enjoy! And, of course, I'll be constantly complaining about the heat because that's how I roll.
