“Give me books, French wine, fruit, fine weather and a little music played out of doors by somebody I do not know.” – John Keats
Where can we find you most days
Home—I work from home and when I'm not working I'm with the kids, taking or picking them up from school, running errands or hitting the park to run off some energy and enjoy the outdoors. Also @lindsaymeyerharley.

Eating out at least once a week, either with the children or just my husband and I. We don't spend a ton and we end up going to the same handful of places, but we look forward to it each week.

I don't wear perfume, but when I do, I love warm beachy scents.
Closet Staple (You Refuse To Part With)
A few vintage dresses from my early twenties I have had to repair more times than I can count. I just can't let them go. I think I'll give them to Juliette, my daughter, when she's older.
Most Treasured Piece of Jewelry
My engagement ring, it was passed down on my side of the family and my husband surprised me by adding a center stone and I'll never forget when he proposed and I realized it was the ring I've been admiring for years. It meant he'd talked to my parents, and that this was real, ha! It hit me in the best way possible.

Best part of your day
How many pieces of jewelry do you usually wear at any given time (what are they?)
I wear 3 rose gold stacking bands as my wedding ring which I haven't taken off since my wedding day in 2008, 2 rose gold thread bare rings on my right hand and my Slim Signet Ring from AGJ. I also go back and forth between a necklace with 2 'J' charms (for my children Jack and Juliette) and my Crescent Moon Pendant necklace from AGJ.
Favorite curse word
Typical coffee order
Iced Coffee with a splash of milk.
Can’t stop listening to
David Gray, forever and always.
On my nightstand
A few books, a Le Labo candle. and my sign from the women's march leaning against the wall. It says in bold black "love is in need of love today" and it's a reminder to love extra each day—we all could use more love.
In my fridge, you will always find
Eggs, a pitcher of iced coffee, a variety of greens for our nightly salad and vanilla greek yogurt by the dozen for my 3 year old, who doesn't eat much else!
