Final House Tour

Dear Friends, I have so much to share that finding a beginning is overwhelming.  I figured I’d wrap up with the old house and share some MLS pictures.  Keep in mind that real estate pictures and blogging pictures are not one and the same.  Bloggers want magazine-style pictures.  Forget your flash and lamps are a […]

New Beginnings

Dear Friends, I am in fact alive and still here on Earth.  I took a blogging hiatus without really intending to.  It turns out moving combined with the end of the school year was far too much to handle and everything peripheral fell to the wayside.  We were so busy and crazed that I honestly […]

Emily’s Doughnut (donut) Themed Baby Shower

Dear Friends, It is hard to believe that the much anticipated baby shower for my sister is over.  I’ve never planned so far in advance for a party or event.  The best part of the shower was the excuse to go hog-wild.  With kiddo birthday parties, I’m always feeling the need to reign it in. […]

Outdoor Rug Round-Up

Dear Friends, Saturday morning we had a yard sale followed by a baby shower, both of which were at our house .  It was a record for-the-books marathon day and as much as I enjoyed it, I’m not sure I could do all that again.  Of course, the baby shower was sweet and fun and […]

For Sale?

Dear Friends, Don’t ever declare on the internet to a zillion people that you will never, ever sell your house. Because ultimately, you might eat those words.  Maybe it wasn’t in the plans to ever sell your dream house.  Ever.  Maybe you put down roots that you didn’t plan on pulling up. Maybe ultimately other […]

Nursery Progress: Window Seat

Dear Friends, My sister has found that later pregnancy energy.  She has morphed into a project maniac and is turning out stuff on a daily basis.  I’m frankly jealous of the nesting gone wild phase.  There is a lot of productivity in that superwoman stage. Just in the last couple of weeks Emily (& Andrew) […]

Easter Weekend

Dear Friends, I think Easter might be my favorite holiday.  I like that it lacks the chaos and effort of Christmas.   Maybe that is just the sweet tea talking after 40 days of separation, but I’m still humming Easter hymns and basking in the glow of the weekend. Saturday was actually a wash-out with […]

Spring Mantel

Dear Friends, I’ve held off on spring decorating so far this year.  I’m a predictable admirer of all things bird, nest, and bunny but the instinct just hadn’t come calling.  I can blame the weather but we did have a beautiful few days last week believe it or not.  This week might be another story […]

Two Years Later: A New Faucet

Dear Friends, After two years with a broken kitchen faucet we finally bit the bullet.  Because it was only the sprayer that was out of use, it was never at the top of the list to get fixed.  Also, if you remember, I waffled quite a bit on the style.  Our old faucet was a […]

Baby Shower Fever

Dear Friends, I’m co-hosting a baby shower for my sister at my house in a month.  Emily has been responsible for two showers for me so I want to return the favor with something fabulous.  She likes to go all out – her cupcake baby shower for our friend Amelia was quite the event.  I […]
