So many goodies.  Lucia was most excited about the glitter and the lip balm.  Definitely my kid.
Today is the first official day of summer and the afternoon could not be more beautiful here in New York City.  Yesterday I spent the day at Alt Summit and it was everything I hoped it would be and more.  I connected with so many cool and interesting people and finished the day feeling so inspired.  When you spend the day listening to the likes of Grace Bonney and Garance Dore you cannot helo but walk away feeling ready to do more.  I've shared some of my favorite quotes from the day below.  Our plans for the next few days include the Swedish Midsummer Festival tonight, time with family, and a trip to the Smorgasburg and carousel in Brooklyn.  Throw in a little early birthday celebration for my girl who turns three (!!) on Monday and I think we have the makings of a perfect summer weekend.

Garance and me (with fuzzy, pregnant summer hair apparently.)

Cupcakes at the after-party that I still regret not eating.
