a new online magazine has hit the internet. lonny is it's name. design is it's game. was so happy to find this wonderfully inspiring magazine. it has filled the void that domino magazine had left. my husband and i had a lonny date on saturday night. we put the twins down to bed @ 7pm, grabbed a glass of wine, cooked a frozen pizza, made a quick salad with greek dressing and cozied up to the computer for a night of lonny. lots to talk about, dream about, inspire about.

adirondack antiques show

it wouldn't be fall without a trip to the adirondacks. i look forward to this fall trip like a kid looks forward to christmas morning. we stay at the hedges on blue mountain lake. it's a family gathering with both josh's parents and my parents meeting us there. my bro came too. the antique show held at the adirondack museum is a dream for those that love the outdoors. rustic camp furniture, hunting and fishing antiques, boats, taxidermy, antlers, and native american materials are found there. it's like camp for adults. we went hiking and kayaking and listened to loons making their calls on the lake.
