Pardon The Interruption

SEE LARK! | Pardon The Interruption

Howdy folks! You may have noticed that I have been a little absent in the past week.  Our little man decided to greet us a little earlier than his due date. Pardon the hiatus as hubby and I learn to take care of another human being!  On this day before Thanksgiving, we have so much to be thankful for and I wish you all the best for you and your family.

Happy 4th!

SEE LARK! | Happy 4th

Work has consumed all of my life for the past few weeks so I am looking forward to celebrating the 4th with a little R&R. I packed my favorites – swimsuit, beauty essentials, and the all important pair of sunnies –  and intend to go offline for a bit.  Wishing you a Happy Independence Day…see you next week!

A Table Setting For The Non-Stuffy

For the past two years, my husband and I have hosted Thanksgiving dinner.  He roasts the bird, and I serve as sous chef and resident table setter.  Given it was a small gathering, I wanted the dining experience to be warm, friendly, and special and dressed the table accordingly.  With the holiday season in full swing, perhaps you too will host one of many upcoming parties or dinners.  If so, set the mood for the evening with a beautiful yet non-stuffy tabletop.   The key is balance, for every formal touch, offset it with a whimsical and casual element.  Here are a few ideas for your next hosting escapade.
