It is soooo satisfying to squeeze lemons from your own tree (why does that sound slightly naughty? ) Fortunately an allee in the south of France is not required. A pot in a sunny spot on your porch will do. If you don’t want to be like me: buying one from the hardware store, planting it in a wine barrel, and hoping for the best, then see my stories for all the tips you need to grow your own. I mean you’ve done the breadmaking thing, right? Turn that flour-y white thumb to green!⁠⁠ ⁠⁠ Photography by @gettyimages⁠⁠

Don’t you love a porch swing, especially a big wide one like this, suitable for napping. While we may not all live in a big ‘ol gorgeous house on the Lowcountry marsh, there are always beautiful tips to be gleaned from @heatherchadduck’s classic Southern design. A color palette influenced by the natural setting weaves throughout the house, creating a calming, cozy retreat for coastal getaways. Explore the charms of this Victorian-style beach house via my link in bio.⁠⁠ ⁠⁠ Design by @heatherchadduck⁠⁠ Photography by Laurey W. Glenn @southernliving⁠⁠

Apart from this sofa, which I love because: #green , @carolinegidieredesign makes a subtle statement about the importance of design detail. The cording edge on the slipper chair and the tape on the sofa pillows and cushions are deft couture touches, and can we talk about that divine fringe on the sofa skirt? A beautiful hand-blocked pillow fabric doesn’t hurt either. ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ Design and photography by @carolinegidieredesign⁠

Mmmm I’m buzzin’ over this herb and flower infused honey recipe I discovered recently and had to share. Flavored honey is YUMMY but can be difficult to find and a wee bit pricey. With the right ingredients, you can make this at home and you’ll be bee-lighted (har!) that you did. Recipe in my stories. ⁠⁠ ⁠⁠ Photography and recipe by @helloglowblog

My heart skips a beat and I confess a little lump in my throat when I remember this shot at my beloved Bee Cottage in East Hampton. Our living spaces hold our stories, many of them universal. Bee Cottage countenanced heartbreak and joy, family heirlooms and flea market flotsam. It tolerated ad hoc collections of art, rocks, shells, bird nests, and my travel mementos. My book “The Bee Cottage Story” is still in print (its 6th!) and signed copies available via my website, link in profile. Take a walk down memory lane with me (and @flowermag!) and tour Bee Cottage in my stories.⁠⁠ ⁠⁠ Photography by Tria Giovan

The dapper and charming (and so much else) Vernon Jordan, rest in peace. Well done. His Grace knew him and his wife, as did many of my Atlanta friends. I met him a few times in New York. He had a twinkle. A giant and a gentleman who worked courageously and tirelessly for justice and for truth. 1980 photo via AP/M Nederhandler

This Parisian rooftop garden has me dreaming of summer parties and dining alfresco. Although I sometimes feel I live in an endless summer here in Los Olivos, I look forward to the warm summer nights, which are rarer, and we can linger after dinner on the porch or in the olive grove without shivering. ⁠ ⁠ Photography by @gregoryblakesamsevents ⁠

Some days I just have to see the ocean. you have to bring it back to the basics to ground yourself. Salt in the air, the wind in your hair, and waves. Does it for me every time, grounds me (waters me?) in the sweetest gratitude. ⁠⁠ How wonderful is this oceanside pool in Australia? Recently highlighted in @cerealmag, I have added it to my list of must-visit places! ⁠⁠ ⁠⁠ Photography by @carmenchan ⁠⁠
