Quote of the Week ( + Contributor Update)

  "The sleeping in on Sunday mornings. Staying up late swapping stories. Curling up with a book by the fire. Romancing through the midnight hour. Baking cookies and fixing soups. Hosting dinner parties for big groups. The laughing. The chatting. The dancing...Sharing all those moments that give life meaning. That's what we want. That's why we decorate. To make all those dreams come true."

- Meghan Carter, The Meghan Method

Happy April 1st! I hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend. I sure did - it was Luke's first and he had so much fun.

Just a quick update on my search for Contributors to join Belle Maison: thank you, thank you to all of you amazing bloggers who have emailed me your submissions to become a contributor! I'm overwhelmed at the response and am having the hardest time narrowing down my final picks! I'll be announcing the new team this Thursday, April 4th. Thanks again and I look forward to working with some of you :)
