Lately: April 2016 Edition - A Detailed Palette

Happy Thursday, you guys! We're almost to the end of the week and the end of April - two facts that I find to be totally astounding right now! This month is always slightly crazy with family birthdays galore, including my own and that of my godson. Reggie also happens to be due for his yearly check up every April, and you always have tax day to worry about. This year, though, it just seem like there are even more things going on in an already always packed month.

I'm still attempting to train for the Madison Half Marathon, but if I am being totally honest, I am really nervous about it. I missed a few training days due first to a spring bout of flu and then a stage-five clinger cold that would just NOT go away. I'm hoping that I can at least get to the 10 mile mark some time soon - as long as my time/experience is better than last year's, I think I'll consider it a success.

I'm also currently taking a few side classes in photography and social media, one for the blog and one for work and both for personal development. I've been trying to carve out time every Sunday for these - while time is tough to carve out, it's kind of fun feeling like a student again.

And of course, the murder mystery party (you can see the invites below) and my vacation are quickly approaching - immensely looking forward to both, especially since vacation means warm weather, time to read, time to hike, and actually getting to see my sister! I'll be sharing blogs about both events in the future.

Shortly after getting back from vacation, I'll be heading to the Kips Bay Showhome for work - and I am so incredibly excited for it. I can't wait to see all of the different designs. For those of you who don't know what the Kips Bay Showhome is, it's actually a new home every year - something that I myself just learned this year. Each year, top interior designers are recruited to design the home - one designer per room. There's always some really cool coverage of it, and I am looking forward to being able to see the designs firsthand. Perks of the job! I hope I'll be able to share a few photos from the home on here later on.

We're going to be inheriting a new piece of furniture over the weekend, and I have totally reorganized the guest bedroom - I'll be sharing next week. On that same vein, I'm currently putting together my official home tour - a goal that I set for myself in 2016. 

And just because I don't have enough to do (hah!), I decided that now is a great time to knit a blanket. Here's the pattern I'm attempting in case you're interested.

That's all 

Here's to hoping you have a truly great Thursday!
xo, Rachel
