This week on Marlborough 3.28

^ I'm not sure when they take the Comm. ave. Christmas lights down. I hope never.

A few highlights of the week...

Work was pretty all encompassing this week due to the launch of Birch Lane, which joined the Wayfair family this Wednesday to become our fourth lifestyle brand (along with Joss&Main, AllModern, & DwellStudio). Birch Lane is the brainchild of some incredibly creative folks here at Wayfair and the products/photoshoots have been a long time in the making - but we've had to keep it very hush hush. Everything in the new collection is soooo beautiful, think Pottery Barn but a bit more affordable. You can see some of my favorites from the collection here.

So while much of the Birch Lane team headed to New York this week for a launch event and press previews, I headed into the office super early on Wednesday morning to kick off all of their social channels to coincide with the launch. I hope you'll join us in saying #hellobirchlane this week!

Well, there was one other big win for the week...we moved to glazing in clay class! :)

And a few fun things from around the web...
  • I can't get this song out of my head. It's my new jam.
  • I've got some major breakfast making to do.
  • I'd like to be having a Friday afternoon drink here. #tgif
  • Leighton Meester's cover of Fleetwood Mac's "Dreams" is, well, dreamy.
  • Grandmothers reading the lyrics to that Beyonce song that "all the teenagers are singing." So funny!
  • Have you heard of the site ChicWish? I stumbled on the site  this week and snagged this little number. I've been loving stripes lately. 
  • I love how a yellow sofa creates a sunny focial point in all these rooms.
  • 11 amazing photojournalists to follow on Instagram.
  • This post-it map is so cool.
  • Emily & John's wedding video is up and it's amazing! Relive the magic of #jemwed.

And finally, I hope you all will join me in sending thoughts and prayers to the families of the two firefighters that died this week a couple of blocks from our apartment. I loved seeing the Bruins honor them last night, and hearing what Tom Brady had to say after watching the fire first hand from his home a few doors down. What these guys did everyday makes everything I do and worry about seem totally and completely insignificant in comparison. I am so grateful for them risking their lives, and sadly losing them, for the sake of the neighborhood and the city we love so much.

Stay safe and have a wonderful weekend.
