Early Easter: Late Spring Arrival


In the past few weeks, I have been willing Spring to come our way. We've had spurts of warm yet breezy weather over the last few days -- including my wonderful birthday / early Easter weekend -- but it seems as if winter weather may be rearing it's head again. So while it may be turning frigid again for the moment outdoors, it's still springtime inside my home with beautiful ranunculus and hyacinths.

2013 Color of the Year: Emerald


Emerald: 2013 Color of the Year

Green has always been one of my favorite hues. The liveliness it brings to interior and outdoor spaces, and fashion is something that I crave. Thus, I was incredibly excited when Pantone announced that Emerald was the color of the year for 2013. Now, people across the blogosphere have been blogging about this since the announcement late last year - I actually started pulling items for this post in early 2013. But, with the cold weather, I just wasn't inspired to complete the effort. With Spring just now starting to pop through the cold spells, and bring life back to my dark and cold world, I've been inspired to revive this post. Enjoy!

Birthday Reflections

I often wonder if I'm alone in cherishing my birthday as much as I do. Everyone enjoys attention and gifts, but it's much less a about that for me. Each year, I take time to reflect on how blessed I am to be here in this world and how much I appreciate my life and my family. It's become even more poignant with the loss of my grandfather this year. Yesterday was a milestone birthday for a couple reasons -- not only my age -- it was the first year I did not hear "Happy Birthday, Baby!" live from my grandfather's voice. I do, however, continue to replay it in my head. And, that, along with all the other blessings God has bestowed on me -- great husband, cute dog, supportive family -- has made this the best birthday yet. I'm growing, and I love it.

All the best!

Happy 2013!


Here's to starting 2013 off right! I'm proclaiming this new year as one of great promise, growth, and achievements – a renewal of sorts. Evolving current concepts. Giving life to new ones. 
My only resolution this year: Get things done, and enjoy myself all along the way! 

What are your goals for the new year?

Artist of the Week: Picasso to Warhol Series Intro



Back in March, while visiting the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, I took in the amazing Picasso to Warhol: Fourteen Modern Masters exhibit. It was a great crash course on modern art and some of its key influencers. I've decided to showcase each of the featured artists and their work here on epitome over the next few weeks. We'll start next week with some of the later works of Pablo Picasso.



Current Craving: Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream

A few weeks back, as I was trolling the aisles of Costco I noticed that the Cuisinart Frozen Yogurt-Ice Cream and Sorbet maker was in stock and on sale. After thinking about all of the cool summer treats I could make, I couldn't leave the store without it. I made my first batch of ice cream last week and it was super delicious! I have an appreciation for unique flavors in frozen treats, but for me, nothing beats a great basic vanilla, strawberry or chocolate. Have any of you made homemade ice cream or frozen yogurt? If so, what are your favorite recipes?

Summer Style: My Go-To Ensemble




When shopping for Spring and Summer this year, I tended to gravitate to three main colors: Coral,   Cobalt and what I like to call Spring Green. I was lucky to find one piece that brought these all together -- my multi-striped French Connection dress (2). Paired with coral Sam Edelman heels (1) and the my greenhouse Cole Haan satchel (3), this ensemble evokes a sexy yet cool summer vibe.
