I had plans to show you the Easter and spring decor around the house, but the light is dismal today, so I’ll save that for next week. I’ve been down with the flu for most of the last week. Tamiflu makes me miserable so that wasn’t an option, but the good news is that I’m recovering…
…just in time for the pollen blizzard to hit! No one in our family really suffers from allergies, but the sheer volume of pollen in the air makes it feel like you’re trying to breathe in the middle of a dust storm. We usually wait to do the spring clean up in the yard until after the pollen drops, but I’m itching to get started this year!
In other news, Harley has been pretty sad since Sunny died. Over the past two years, we’ve gone from two dogs, a cat, and a hamster down to just one lonely golden retriever. The good news is that his nice German girlfriend, Mia, comes to visit almost every day to play and cheer him up. Aren’t friends wonderful?
There’s so much fun stuff to do around here, and the Stoneybrook Steeplechase is coming up in a few weeks. Apparently I need to find a fabulous hat similar to what one would wear to The Oaks for the Derby. SO, advice please!
I already have this Lilly Pulitzer dress:

Or this pink one:

But, I also have this Boden dress already, too:

And I think this hat is gorgeous (although it’s more expensive, because my champagne taste is unerring).

Which do you prefer? Pink/navy or gray/yellow? I have a couple of weeks to decide but would love your input.
Have a lovely weekend, and thanks for stopping by–
