What's Up Wednesday

ahem. can that be a thing? What's up Wednesday? Let's just ramble and get to know each other again.

It's spring!

You guys, that means more sunshine, more flowers and more time to be outdoors! Actually, the weather here has been pretty rainy... I suppose April showers are on the way? So I hope there will be more sunshine. so that there is more time to be outdoors. Which would be very conducive to city exploring especially with so many new stores and restaurants set to open here in St. Petersburg and around the Tampa Bay area. 

My parents are excellent gardeners (see my dad's orchid garden and these blooms). Everything they touch seems to be able to thrive. I, on the other hand, did not inherit such talent. My skills in gardening put me on the other end of the spectrum. 

Confession: I killed my rosemary plant... but I have a replacement! It seems to be holding up this time around. But I digress... I've taken a few orchids home with me to my apartment, those that have bloomed from their garden. It's kind of like babysitting the orchids while they are pretty and returning it back to my parents when the flowers have fallen off. 

Weekends are very precious. As a working woman now, I don't have the luxury of a spring break. Those were the days... 

But! I am so happy to have been able to spend a few hours of last weekend with Kristyn, of Milk and Crown blog and jewelry shop, and Angel, of Studio 404 blog and paper shop, for round two of our mini Sunshine Bloggers meet up at the Oxford Exchange. Such talented ladies... if you haven't checked out their work, definitely do so.

I cannot get enough of the OE. Such a beautiful place, a thoughtfully designed retailer, restaurant, bookstore, coffee and tea shop. I wish I could live there. I mean, what doesn't the place have??

What have you guys been up to? What's up on your Wednesday? Tell me something.


  1. I had such a great time meeting up with you and Kristyn on Sunday! So jealous of your parents gardening skills.

  2. i too killed a rosemary plant! one of the hardiest plants! also - if your dad has any tips on how to get orchids to bloom again, i'm all ears! i have three at home that have beautiful green leaves but i'm just waiting to see if they will bloom again.


Thank you so much for your lovely note!
