This Monday morning was a little harder to get back in the groove – we jetted off to Napa for a stunning wedding at Durham Ranch. You can check out the pictures I shared on instagram. Love was definitely in the air that night and it was a pleasure seeing Crystal and Andrew’s love for each other – it was truly magical. Sunday I decided I needed to get a bit more active and went to my first ever Soulcycle class . . . it was motivating, energizing and so so hard. Today I can barely move my arms but that means it’s working, right?
This week I’m inspired by the new issue of Elle Decoration, a few books I have on my bookshelves, the last peony from our Blooms in Season post and a candle by Aerin that has been making our house smell amazing.
I hope all of you have a productive work week ahead!

This weekend was delightful. I escaped the cold misty fog for warmer temperatures in Marin to have lunch with a girlfriend, spent an afternoon at Lowe’s cutting shelving for a few of our closets, put together more furniture and then spent Sunday at home doing just about nothing with Eric finally home. I had full intention of working on organizing my office but when it came down to it I decided that taking the weekend off was more important. So this week, I’ll be working away on the boxes.
Spending time in our new home was such a treat. I played around with my Parsons bookcase styling all of our treasures. This week this stack of blue books given to me by my aunt and cousin for my birthday has me completely inspired! I love the different hues of blue they found.
I hope all of you have a productive week ahead. There are some fun posts coming your way this week and don’t forget to check out the Brooklyn Cruiser bike giveaway and the jcpenney $5,000 sweepstakes over on Pinterest!

This weekend went by incredibly fast for my taste. Do you ever wake up on a Monday morning and feel like you’re already behind even though you’ve worked over the weekend to try and get ahead? That’s how I am currently feeling. There are multiple to-do lists in front of me and I’m in the midst figuring out how to divide and conquer. With important projects pulling me in all sorts of directions I feel as though I need to pause, regroup and re-enter this week. I don’t usually share the ups and downs of life here on the blog but sometimes you just have to be honest. Owning and running your own business can be hard – especially two. I’m incredibly grateful to have a few helping hands and cheerleaders that keep me going at all hours of the day or night. So as I sit back to re-group I’m turning to fellow readers, small business owners and bloggers – what has helped you push through the hard times?
On another note, I do have a very exciting week here on Sacramento Street – an amazing giveaway you won’t want to miss out on, a peek into a local company that is re-launching, and a fun collaboration that will show a sneak peek of a corner in our new living room.
I hope all of you have a splendid week!

After a fabulous weekend relaxing and celebrating – I’m definitely ready for a fresh start to a new week. This weekend I took an impromptu day trip to Calistoga Indian Springs, spent the day organizing our new apartment (it’s finally feeling like home) and celebrated my birthday with family and friends. It felt as though beginning of summer had finally begun!
Today’s inspiration comes from a blissful morning spent at home enjoying my new living room. I felt so at ease and at home.
This week I’m excited to bring you a new workspace feature, a room anatomy post you’ll want to copy right away and a fun little collaboration. We’ll be saying goodbye to May with these fabulous posts – I can hardly believe another month has come and gone. But I’m excited for what lies ahead this summer. Do you have any fun, exciting adventures planned?

Goodbye sweet studio – you’ve been amazing. I’m handing over my keys to a dear friend today and I’m excited for her to make her own memories.
I have a lot in store here this week – a delicious salad from Susan, a glimpse into my trip to Mexico, I’ll be sharing a lookbook project I worked on and much more.
Now that we’re settling into life in our new apartment things are getting back to normal – no more running back and forth. It feels so good to have one home now.
I hope all of you are off to a wonderfully productive week!
