Here’s a few 2022 highlights by the month in pictures…


Beginning 2022 we racked up ski days in Telluride & Aspen.

Our favorite Colorado getaway Aspen, Colorado! The perfect place to kick off the ski season.
It’s always fun to wear all the wintery favorites in Aspen. This fun hat is from Performance Ski.


My son & I hit up excellent powder skiing in Crested Butte, we were there for his ski competition.
The first trip of many in 2022 to Texas…
We stayed at the Gage Hotel in Marathon, TX. and went to the most gorgeous wedding ever!


This sweet, colorful tequila donkey was a sweet part of the wedding festivities.


My new company Mer Rose Atelier was invited to pop-up at the grand opening of Love Shack Fancy Houston.

Meeting the fabulous Rebecca Hessel Cohen at the launch of Love Shack Fancy Houston was a pink lovers dream!
The Mer Rose Atelier collection fit in perfectly at the Love Shack Fancy Houston launch.
Dressing in pretty pastels is a very comfortable place for me!


After the ski season closed it was time to party in our favorite sunny spot, St. Barths!

Every view is a great view in beautiful St. Barths!


I literally went back to my roots…going back to being a brunette feels way more fun!


I felt such great JOY watching my daughter graduate from high school surrounded by her loving family.

July 4th we spent in Aspen & I took a wonderful week long painting workshop at my fave Anderson Ranch


To celebrate my daughters graduation and our love of travel I took my kids on an epic Italian road trip. We covered 2000 miles (I drove) from Venice to Sicily and many stops in between.

My son and I took a few Italian cooking classes & learned how to make fresh pasta & some other classic dishes.

A Portofino highlight was the Dior Beach Club!


We welcomed a new puppy into our home! Now we have four rescue hounds and life is off the hook busy. Gustavia is a sweet boy and adds so much fun to our canine filled world. I drove a few thousand miles to pick up this sweetie at the Carolina Coonhound Rescue in Charleston, SC.

I was invited to a weeklong wellness staycation with Reset Telluride. This invigorating week taught me so much about self introspection, relaxation, health & wellness. We hiked everyday and enjoyed fall in the mountains while dining on delicious vegan cuisine in the company of wonderful, empowering women.

After long hikes, relaxing time at the Madeline Hotel pool was such a treat.

Fall in Telluride is always so beautiful! The months begins with Telluride Film Festival, a wonderful creative escape & the best way to see as many premiers  & upcoming films as possible.

After several months of art prep, October was a very busy month that had me mostly in Texas (again!) My Mer Rose Atelier collection popped up for 2 weeks in Gina Bowhill’s tent at Blue Hills. It was a wild few weeks & I learned a whole lot! This event was also the debut of my Mer Rose hand painted china collection. It was so well received that I have a new kiln being delivered in January 2023.

2022 wrapped with the onset of the ski season & lots of time spent in the great outdoors!
