La La La Love You

Hello! Happy Valentine’s Day! My winter break went a bit longer than anticipated and I’ll post more about what has been going on with me next week (it’s a long personal post that I’m not quite finished with), but I wanted to pop in beforehand and send you all some love and post some beautiful new paintings by my fellow rose lover, Seattle-based artist Jenny Vorwaller. I dream of someday hanging a big night rose garden scene by her talented hands in my home. See more of Jenny’s work HERE. xoxo Jen

P.S. Check out the yummy pistachio meringue and rose water cream cookies I made! They are from this wonderful book. I talked about my minor tweaks in my Instagram post. ♥

Happy New Year!

Happiest New Year to you all! I’m so grateful for you joining me here — it means so much to me. Truly. It’s been such a tough year and the next one doesn’t look to be getting any easier with the people in power. I am working on my New Year’s Intentions list to post in the next couple weeks, but my heart is just so thankful for unity and community. Most of us aim to be on the right side of history and knowing that is what keeps hope alive for the triumph of decency and progress. Knowing that there are more good people than bad is a potent energy. Sending you all lots and lots of love. I’m going to keep it light and take some much needed time off in January, but I’ll definitely be popping in for some posts. I hope you make room for some self-care, too! xoxo Jen

YAY! Here’s the third installment the Best of Honey Kennedy 2017, so get cozy! So. Much. Linen. And I’m not mad at that. It’s really fun to look back and let all the good design and beauty wash over me again. I hope you love it, too! This year has been really difficult and emotional for most of us and it’s good to find bright spots. For me, those spots involve art, design, and everyone in the resistance. I hope, with all my heart, to provide a portal of bright spots for you here. Find more Best of Honey Kennedy 2017 posts xo Jen ♥
