if you’re not playing water polo, or butterflying your way to fit- what more do you need than a basic little plunge pool? it’s certainly an option if your outdoor space is limited- big dreams can be accomplished- in a pleasant little body of water. i think they’re charming, euro, less is more, a therapeutic accompaniment to a chic little garden. so what if every kid on the block isn’t begging for access?

post poolside syndrome



on paper arriving home from my winter getaway in miami on the first day of spring seemed like i could escape the post vacation blues. unfortunately, the weather has not turned, not a lilac in sight, and snowflakes are still falling. hanging by the pool made me remember there was a life outside of 9pm bedtimes, crusty uggs, and salt stained everything. i still have my toasted skin to remind me of my recent escapades in a vitamin D rich world. one day after getting off that plane, i ask myself if i am in a worse boat having been teased for the past five days? i’m back to dreaming  of outdoor living through pictures.
