We obviously already know that Phoebe is fabulous (or she wouldn't be my friend or beautiful Bloom co-founder) but let me tell you, when I saw her in her element at the cocktail party she hosted in the garden of Just Curious? on Sunday, I was blown away.

The only way I can describe the entire event, simply put, is divine. The food: divine. The setting: divine. The guests: divine. The hostess: DIVINE (and most definitely a Pure Food Goddess).

So let's raise our glasses to Phoebe, who on Sunday made our little corner of the world a beautifully delicious and magical place for a few hours, and once again made me fall head over heels in love with my  Berks County community. Thank you for doing what you do.

That's how things have been lately - luckily the good outweighing the bad. So a few images to get you up to speed on what's been happening over here! Happy Monday :)

full bloom

Whew! What a wonderful Monday - it was so busy I didn't even have a chance to pop over here and update you lovely people on what's taken root in my life: Bloom Where You Are.

It's been a collaboration of love with two of the most talented and beautiful ladies I know and we are so excited to share a bazillion things we have blooming in our brains and hearts over the coming months (and hopefully years and decades I crazy? Duh.). I'm telling you, these girls are total babes. But there's more where that came from, and we promise to introduce you to all the babes in Berks that Bloom thinks you should know about and love just as much as we do.

So poke around on the site, it's a work in progress, and come meet us this Saturday at our happy little pop-up shop on the porch of Hello, Bluebird (one of said babes you should know). Oh and like us on Facebook! That would be great too!

Here's to blooming where you are.

fresh cut

Be still my heart! How perfect are these fresh cut pretties?! Cut from the garden and delivered to my door this afternoon to surprise a special leading lady this evening in her debut performance in Spring Awakening. The Rustic Bunch has got it going on and has gone straight to my heart with their happy, loving flower bunches. Visit them on Sunday at the West Reading Farmer's Market or like them on Facebook and shoot the adorable Katie a message and she'll take care of the rest. Seriously, they couldn't be cuter or more pleasant to work with - just one more reason I'm a localvore.

It's still Wednesday? Ugh. Anyway, I fell in love with this little guy, over here. So then I decided to visit the Esty shop of Tala Stone - big mistake for me, great mistake for you (especially if you need to buy me a present)!

I am loving pretty much every, single piece! They are gorgeous and super reasonably priced, which is the perfect combo if you ask me. The sharks tooth just really resonates with me; it's the grown-up fancy version from when I was little and would collect them on the  beach with my Uncle. Obviously, I need to have it along with baby skull necklace.

weekend (life) wonders

Since I've been MIA, I figure a picture is worth a thousand words.
