Close Calls

friday favorites / a thousand threads

We’re here! And darn lucky for it – I’ve never had such a close call at an airport and still made my plane. After over an hour at security, we found ourselves begging to cut in line (you – guy on his way to the Middle East – you are amazing, thank you!) then making a run for it.

The whole thing was pretty farcical, really… running running running just to sit on the world’s slowest tram… staring out the window at our plane and driving farther and farther away to the other end of the terminal.

We finally made it with about three minutes to go… but now we’re here! Home – my favorite place in the world. We’ve already had my favorite breakfast and we’re on our way to wine… it just doesn’t get any better.

Here are a few of my favorites this week. I’ll be on the run until Tuesday, but posting the whole way on instagram… so be sure to keep up over there and I’ll be back soon!

Have an amazing weekend!

Eye this gorgeous spring shoot by Ryan Ray (on Ryan’s site here, and Style Me Pretty here).

Buy this perfect summertime tote that I’m coveting like crazy.

Make a pretty painted floral tablecloth.

Bake this tasty rhubarb tart.

Did you see these two on Leno? They’re the cutest.

This amazing mom who photographed her daughter at 5 as the real women she can be.

The prettiest little recipe for one of my favorite drinks.

And if you need to catch up on the week’s news, remember we’ve always got you covered!

    I love that tote! I love stripes, to be more honest.

    Have fun on your trip! It looks delicious, from what I’ve seen 🙂

    Haha, oh my gosh, SO glad the two of you made it! It’s crazy how stressful traveling can be.

    I have been obsessing over that singing duo! I want them to be my new best friends…

    Oh links, you are delightful–but nothing beats making your plane!
