Summer greetings to Monika’s readers! Laura here from Laura Casey Interiors.
I am sending you all a postcard from upstate NY where I spent my summers growing up in the Catskill Mountains.
The one thing you can’t miss when visiting this area is:
The waterfalls. They are gorgeous, especially after a big rain. When I want to relax I come here for a visit with my family.
It’s hard to get a call on your cell phone here and the internet is slowly making its’ way here, but I can go a long stretch of time without technology which is very relaxing for me.
In my opinion, the perfect hostess gift:
When staying at someone’s house I love to give them something for their home that is personal to them. We went to a friends’ beach house in South Carolina early in the summer and I gave them a Mariposa shell cocktail napkin holder.
An absolute must read book this summer:
At the top of my “to read” list is Slow Love
by Dominique Browning
. I love reading her blog and look forward to this book!
You will find me dreaming about this design item from my hammock (I want it so badly!):
I am deeply in need of some new office digs, but I have a two wonderful reasons why right now my office is in my house. Some days there are four of us working here and it is a snug. Luckily we all have a good time together!
I look forward to the day that I have some really pretty office space like Suzanne Kasler
. It’s my choice to work at home and being able to give my little ones a kiss at naptime makes me remember not to grumble about it! So I will continue to dream…
Thanks Monika for including me! I hope you all are having a great summer!
