Happy New Year! I hope your Christmas was merry and Santa was good to you all. It was a precious one for us with our boys being 4 and 6–I know that it won’t always be so magical so I do my best to soak it up.
We spent our New Year’s Eve having a lovely dinner with old friends and were home to relieve the sitter at 9. Do you actually always do the countdown each year? For some reason I’m perfectly fine missing it year after year. Nightowl I am not.
New Year’s Day we took advantage of everyone’s hangovers and subsequent empty roads to head on down to Rosemary Beach to hang a few things at Aqua and see all the work Brulio Casas and crew have done in person! Anisa and I are just so freaking happy–It is our dream come true to design a restaurant. And here is the (almost) finished project….a few things need tweaking and panels need to go up…but it is pretty much done.

I swear my favorite part of this whole restaurant is that wedgewood gray door. It makes me so happy.
I have many stories and behind-the-scenes pictures, but I really don’t want to mess up her photos by posting my grainy phone pics now. I do want to share a picture Jennifer (photographer & my sister) took as she was walking on the beach. She didn’t carve this praise out with a stick–someone else did–but isn’t it perfect?
Here’s to more dreams coming true this new year…
