My favorite coastal light fixtures + a little puppy drama

April 29, 2020

A LITTLE PUPPY DRAMA Today I was able to get to the chapter in Michelle Obama’s book where she spills the details on how she and Barack met. It is such a cute story and I have relished the peak into their lives. (Read: Audio Books: What I am listening to now + what I am going to listen to next) I took this afternoon off for a little rest and relaxation. I also had…

Audio Books: What I am listening to now + what I am going to listen to next

April 27, 2020

FINDING TIME FOR AUDIO BOOKS I am an avid reader. I like cuddling up in my over-sized slip-covered chair in my living room with a cup of coffee and reading for an hour or two. Up until the last few months, I was finishing at least one book a month. I like going to used book stores or the Goodwill to find books. I don’t typically buy books brand new unless I find them on…

Flower bed refresh + how we are surviving quarantine

April 26, 2020

It has been a while since I have posted. Life has been a bit different for awhile. The husband and I have been sheltering-in-place and taking it easy. I work remotely, so I have been throwing myself into client work, unsure if I will even have work the following week. I have been assured that work will continue, at least through the month of May. Right now, that is all the assurance I need. I…

Winter Blues: Designing with Blue

February 26, 2020

A couple of weeks ago we woke up to snow falling. It was so beautiful. It has been a couple of years since we had snow in Atlanta, so this was quite a treat. I lived in New York during college, so I have seen my fair share of snow. I am not a fan of driving in the stuff and I certainly don’t care for shoveling it. In Atlanta we only got a couple…

New Laundry Room Rug, Bunny Cookie Jar, & a Family Visit

February 24, 2020

Hello, friend. I hope you had a wonderful weekend! I had a great weekend. It has been awhile since I have had what I consider a regular person style weekend. For weeks, the husband and I have been shopping for tile, looking at cabinets, driving around town looking at stone, or one of the other 1 million things that come with a remodel. This weekend was normal and I loved it! This weekend I went…

12 Classy Nude-Tone Shoes for the Office

February 21, 2020

When I was packing for the trip to Miami a couple of weeks ago (you can see the photos from the trip here), I realized how worn out many of my shoes looked. I work from my home office during the week instead of making a commute to a traditional office. I have been doing this for a little over a year. This means that my shoe collection doesn’t get a lot of attention. This…

Laundry Room Remodel Week 1 Update

February 18, 2020

It has been a few weeks since I have provided an update on the progress of our laundry room remodel. However, the project is still moving along. Today I am sharing the week 1 update of our remodel. THE BEFORE Lets begin with how the room looked before the project started. The room was cluttered and had very little space for storage. The walls had holes from shelving that the husband took off the walls…

February at a Glance

February 1, 2020

One more month is in the books! Hello, February. Is nice to meet you. Vegetable I want to Eat More of this month – cauliflower. The husband and I started an Ovo-lacto vegetarian diet 3 months ago. This means that we are vegetarians that also eat eggs and dairy. We both love it, but we do eat a lot of the same things over and over again. My goal is to add in some new…
