peony season 2010 | simple pretty

Happy Friday, Happy Memorial Day Weekend + Happy Summer! (And truth be told, Happy Peony Season: mine burst into flower this week so I’m making the most of it. Above is a glimpse of bouquet #2 ….)

On with the Holiday Weekend Five:

Speaking of getting ready, I’m really excited for Maria’s launch of Wee next week. Custom letterpressed onesies sound perfectly adorable, don’t they? The pop-up shop opens Tuesday, June 1.

I’m taking next week off from blogging. Memorial Day marks the four year anniversary for my little blog: what started as somewhat stream-of-consciousness musings has evolved into a lifestyle blog with a definite/consistent point of view. Though I won’t be posting, rest assured I’ll be reading, relaxing, taking a field trip to the zoo (!?!), and sitting on the patio, having a glass of iced tea (or two). Sometimes, that’s the best way to get inspired: let it find you.

I’ll be back on June 7th. Until then, hope your start to summer is sublime.

Before I go: if you have a thought or opinion you’d like to share with me about simple + pretty, whether it’s something you’d like to see more of, or something you could do without, please leave a comment or send me an email. I’d love to hear from you.
