sunday perfection + modern world jokes...

happy monday to you.  and you. and you and you and you.

I must tell you: yesterday, our little family experienced what may have been the perfect Sunday.  Really, it was wonderful.  Cozy, Sunday morning coffee, a trip to the 'big city' aka Houston, lunch at tiny boxwoods with my sis, a gorgeous garden book find, an unexpected AIA Houston Home Tour stop, new red converse for Dylan, yummy spaghetti and salad for dinner and lights out.  Mix in beautiful weather, a good hair day (when sporting a new hair cut, this is vital), no temper tantrums (well, basically none that really counted) and bottomless mimosas and you've got yourself perfection.  Sprinkle in afternoon Berrypop, the dreamy nursery at Thompson + Hanson and your two-year-old serenading you with a Beck song and you made need a pinch.

I felt happy to the core.  All the crazy that can so easily consume our little existence melted away this weekend.  To-do lists? Out the door!  Monday anxieties?  Hit the road!  Weekend cleaning?  You must be kidding! 

I felt relaxed and in the moment.  And it seemed like everyone else did, too.  Life just meshed in all the right places.  Don't you love when that happens?

I hope your weekend was just as fabulous.  I hope your little heart feels recharged.  But if not, here's a little something to make you laugh, which always helps, doesn't it?

Do you like contemporary design?  I flip-flop on my feelings toward contemporary architecture and design.  To me, there is definitely a fine line between beautifully minimalistic and pretentiously cold.  So, I had to laugh when I saw Unhappy Hipsters this morning.  The site pairs modern architectural and interior design photos with cheeky, passive aggressive captions.

Aren't these funny?

And the children all hung on the rust-streaked mantel with care...

With the proper combination of palette and diffused light, there was no need for a crib.
