This week has been just so good! And we are only at Wednesday! So many good things have happened and yesterday I got a wonderful txt from my bestie that she’s coming to town in the fall !!!!! I’m beyond excited!!!! The thing is that we started planning a trip to New York for the coming fall a while ago and our plan was to meet there but now she decided to come here first and then we go to New York together!!!! YAY!!!! I know it’s still pretty far away 😀 But I can’t help myself! We both have never been to New York. My hubby has spent a night in the JFK years ago when he missed his connecting flight 😀 So that’s all we know. Hahaha 😀 . All the tips, where to eat, stay and so on are more than welcome!
Even though it’s officially not summer yet, we have had quite a heat wave over here. Last couple of days have been +28. And of course flowers don’t like it.. I keep reminding myself every time this happens. So my first peonies for this summer were good for maybe half an hour when I got them and then they pretty much exploded from the heat 😀 Well there are some white roses in the mix too and they don’t seem to mind! Also here’s yesterday’s simple table setting. We got Marimekko’s Oiva plates as a wedding gift. And I’m more that happy with them. I love that Oiva series has so many options, different prints and styles and it’s timeless. I like that I can grow the collection piece by piece and they go really well with other dishes too that I have. These Kurjenpolvi bowls (I only have these two) I got from sale last summer. Luckily I don’t have to go to all the way to Finland to get them, I can get them in downtown Vancouver. Marimekko Vancouver – Design house
Our puppy watches TV all the time .. She takes it so seriously too and gets so into it. Pet food commercials or whatever nature films are the “worst” – I mean she gets so excited!! Too excited sometimes. She even remembers some of her favourite commercial music too so when she hears it she comes rushing to see the dog or the cat on the TV. She’s so funny.
Wishing you a wonderful day!
