Happy Tuesday, I hope you all had a lovely long weekend. It's hard to come down from a holiday weekend. We spent ours out on the island with the pups and checked off most of the items on my weekend wish list, most of which were food related. Burritos from Bubba's, ices from Ralph's, etc. I've always said that all of our favorite pastimes involve eating. And the Mischa apple doesn't fall far from the tree too. We're constantly in talks for more cookies. 

Saturday morning we went down to the dock to bark at the birds and take in the scenery. Small as she is, birds are her target with a special focus on Canadian geese. I have been waiting to wear this top for weeks. I scooped it up about the same time I hit publish on this Wednesday wish list and have been "saving" it since. For what? Who knows. Life without a washer and dryer is an adjustment bringing out some weird reactions, kind of like an improv class. I paired it as planned with white denim but opted for a cardigan, wedges, and simple accessories for a wind friendly weekend look. 

A couple of years ago JD and I wandered into a shop in the West Village that had a couple of wooden watches on display. He was instantly smitten being the handy watch guy that he is. I liked the look and idea and it stuck with me. There are a good deal of things like that in my life, little things that stick around, popping in and out of my thoughts over the years. It's extra special when they come full circle. I really love this watch, it's fun and different without being over the top, in your face about it. You know what I mean. It's timeless and elegant and isn't too big or bulky. I have tiny wrists and often avoid wearing watches as the styles I like have the tendency to look clunky. That is certainly not the case with this Jord number. Not to mention I have received so many compliments on this watch. JD is jealous.
