Love Announcements

So much to catch up on!  (i.e. PHOTOS FROM JUSTIN HACKWORTH!  Oh man, they turned out awesome.  I don’t know how he does it.  But he just captured some magic.  We will be posting them here soon! 🙂 

For now, here are a few things I wanted to send your way:

-A sweet little tip for lovers:
The other day, Danny called me on his way home from work for one reason – just to say that he was excited to see me.  🙂  🙂 

[Trust me, I still can’t believe this is my life.]  It was just such a simple little thing to do but it made my day…and made our greeting even better.  Anyway, if husbands are reading this:  do that!  🙂  Your wives will love it!  🙂

-We just did a fun interview!  There is this awesome husband/wife team that runs The Luncheon Project.  Over lunch, they interview interesting, successful or inspiring people in business, design, entertainment, etc.  And….um…somehow we got lucky and they wanted to interview Danny and me.  We were shocked and honored to be included in the project.  The whole experience was wonderful and somehow it just felt magical.  We sat in the garden at our favorite Thai place in Brooklyn and talked our hearts out about what matters to us most.  Part 1 of the Interview is here on their site. (Part 2 will be coming out soon.)

-For all book lovers:  one of my most talented design friends out of Brooklyn, Erik Heywood, now owns Book Shop.  It’s an amazing collection of vintage books, book related prints, furniture, and accessories for books (see two of his items, above).  I just love his website and all that he’s doing.  He has a pop-up shop in Manhattan starting today (Sept. 14-19th) at C’H’C’M’ (Clinton Hill Classic Menswear).  I’m going to try and swing by there and I hope you will, too.  It’s worth checking out – not only for the goods and early Christmas shopping 🙂 – but just to get to know Erik – – he’s really that cool…and really, one of the most creative (& funny) people I’ve known.

-And – I kind of can’t contain myself on this one…We are in LOVE with this chocolate chip cookie recipe (dairy free/gluten free).  It’s made with my new favorite almond flour, which is nutty delicious and healthy.  We also add GF oatmeal to make them even more irresistible.  (I buy my almond flour here and my agave nectar here. )

-We’ll be speaking at the Manhattan Singles Conference this Saturday and I found out that the times for our sessions will be 1 pm and 2 pm.  (Double deep breaths 🙂  Location is 125 Columbus Ave., across from Lincoln Center.  The theme of the event is, “Who Do You Think You Are?”  We’d love to meet you if you’re there!

To all of our wonderful readers – thanks for all you do.  Thanks for reading, thanks for your notes.  We’re so thankful to have this connection with you…it still kind of amazes me that this is even possible.  We love you all & send you all the best in all your endeavors.  HAVE A GOOD, GOOD WEEKEND!

    should be "Danny and me," not "Danny and I"–you're the object of the sentence, not the subject 🙂

    Good luck with your gig this weekend! I would love to hear Clayton Christensen speak in person. And someday see the Manhatten temple.

    Congratulations, Danny & Mara, on your interview and upcoming speaking event! What an exciting time in your lives. Would love to hear you in person someday, but I am on the west coast. Maybe soon! 🙂
