The Pre-Surtex World

Doesn’t allow for much blogging or excitement.
For example, this is the gem I managed this week:In very happy news:

  • Spring is gorgeous.
  • Spring cleaning is almost done! (Thanks to the clearing clutter fairy, who came for a visit and managed to fix my life. Thanks mom.)
  • I have Cinco De Mayo’d out
  • My elusive robot drawings have resurfaced! Again, clutter be gone!
  • I have almost finished answering the plethora of emails that flood my inbox every Spring from graduating high school students begging me for advice.
  • Other than a taco party on a roof in Park Slope this weekend, and my normal brunching situation, it looks like I’ll have nothing to tempt me from non-Surtex-like activity. YESSSS!

  1. I wish I could help you set up again this year! 😦 I am also jealous of your Cinco de Mayo festivities. No one here even knows what it is. And it's certainly not warm enough for an ourdoor party…sigh…
    p.s. I can't believe you didn't mention your swedish adventure!!!

  2. YOur sketch is beautiful! I soooooooooo need to declutter/spring clean. But quite frankly, I am scared to start lol. Where to start? Eeeeep!

  3. Oh Rachel, I know! How could I forget to mention my trip to Sweden!? I miss you.

    Dawn, The de-cluttering was almost spiritual. Everything in life is sooo much better. I just started at the beginning and took things and said 'keep it' or 'lose it'? We donated more than 6 boxes of stuff to the Goodwill and now I live like someone from Better Homes and Gardens!

    Ben, I like your style too 😉

Pointer Sisters kinda night🔥 We’ve been ignoring this sweet potato, but he will not be ignored. 🌱☀️🧡🌈
#lifelessons #bloomnomatterwhat Five years ago, I walked into a cozy Brooklyn bar and met the sweetest boy a girl could ever hope to meet. Tonight he made us the sweetest cake to celebrate.❤️ ❤️ I wish today was a Bill Murray kind of Groundhog Day, I’d be in Mexico toasting these love birds. 😭😭😭 #happyanniversary to @happilyeveralvarez & @alvar529 AND happy one year anniversary of New Sister Day to me & @prillie_shakazuzu. We’re so lucky Ashton got us Heather. 😘 High Tea B-Day was at least 1000% better than these pics. 😍💛😭⭐️🍰
#andstillbirthdayweekrageson #letshearitfortheboy #👋☕️ Matt’s Grandfather, passed away peacefully at 93 this week. I am glad for the chance I had to know him. He was great. Matt insanely invited me to a four-generation Father’s Day brunch at his parent’s place when we’d been dating a month and a half. Grandpa Volpe’s first question? He wanted to know my intentions. Here he is at our wedding last year. 💛 He was a true original & he will be so missed. I believe. ❄️✨🎄🎅🏻
#firstsnow #chefwifelife We’ve arrived at my parent’s, where Christmas Spirit is alive & well. What a blessing this ‘Eve has been.🎄✨❄️ #merrychristmas #christmastree #ohchristmastree
