Target is killing it these days with their affordable outdoor furniture. How cute are these kids chairs? Last year we purchased four pieces from the Standish Collection – Project 62 and still love them! They’re all holding up beautifully. I added these woven pillows and one on the hanging porch chair. I’m planning to pick up a bottle of this to give our furniture a little extra protection.

Sloane Crosley has a new book of essays titled: Look Alive Out There. I’ve been a fan since her first book: I Was Told There’d Be Cake. Now Madeline is reading her books and has been to a book signing and a seminar all in the last few weeks. Oh to live in New York City!
I’m heading to Denver for Mother’s Day and will be searching for coffee shops! Any ideas? Have a great weekend!
