Magazine Love...

Happy Sunday-

I hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend and is enjoying this wonderful Spring weather. It has been a relaxing weekend full of friends. After graduation (its been almost a whole year since I graduated in May 2009) almost all of my friends moved away and began new lives in new places. As hard as that was for me and as difficult as it can be at times it so great when they come back into town. On Friday evening my dear BFF Emmy was in from Louisville and we had a great time catching up and rehashing the "old days" (that sounds completely old and retired). It was so good for her to be in Lexington for the night and I was sad to see her leave on Saturday. After Emmy left I was able to meet up with Gable and Catherine (I lived with Catherine for  1 1/2 years and she is a fellow DG) and it was nice to catch up. Gable and Catherine are getting married in August in Nashville and I love all things planning related so I was eager to hear the details. It was a lovely time to catch up with friends and I can't wait for the next reunion.

On a much more "homely" note, I am magazine crazy and I love all magazines (celebrity rags, fitness, and design magazines, I love them all) and I regularly peruse the online versions of them to get my fix. One site that I regularly visit is the Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles, and I was taken aback by the featured home in this month's issue. I will admit I am not a fan of bright white anything (unless it is my teeth :)) but I took a liking to the white featured in this spread.

I really like heavy pieces and the kitchen island is gorgeous. I love the spindle details on the legs of the island (it is reminiscent of antique bedposts). A hidden gem in this photo is the pantry door at the back of the picture. I love unique details and those small touches make the room. I have seen several spreads in several different magazines and this is one of my favorites. Nerdy, I know but I look forward to the updates on these sites just as much as I look forward to the online sales at JCrew.

Again, I hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend and has a great Monday.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the kitchen and the island. A light colored kitchen just feels so clean to me.

It's great to see another Lexingtonian blogging!
