Chris has been working on his pride-and-joy getting ready for our little journey. Yet as the sweat began to puddle in the small of our backs as we were cleaning our camper, we looked at each other and asked, “What are we thinking?”
Every summer is hot in Georgia (You can tell a true southerner is one who doesn’t complain of the heat. There is no use. It is just a part of life.) But this summer is just crazy-hot. We thought better of taking an almost-3-year old and almost-5-year old out in this heat and will try again in October.
Things happen for a reason, though. I can’t believe we are getting ready to put our home on the market, but we are. I am taking some of this vacation time to begin to stage our home.
I am so grateful we had Christina take pictures a few weeks ago. I had a strong feeling that we’d want to capture it before it changed.
I pulled (okay, Chris pulled) up our dining table…now I just need to find the leaf. I am planning to paint the assortment of chairs we have around here white and do a hodge podge of white chairs around the table. I am not sure what to do for the art yet. I would love to do a collage of vintage florals on that wall where the sconces are, but I may do something less taste-specific (I am sure the Panton chair may throw off potential buyers anyway. I should probably keep the art as bland as possible.)
And I am still loving Pinterest. You know, I bet this will totally change blogs. Readers who look at blogs just for eye candy I bet will now only look at Pinterest. There are just loads and loads of beautiful pictures and unusual ideas.
I bet this will just encourage those with blogs to be more personal and original. Pinterest even has that social element of being able to follow others and comment. Just curious, though, how do they make their money? I don’t see any ads….and they want you to sign in with Facebook. Are they selling info about what we like? I can’t figure it out.
Some images I’m loving lately:
And early Happy Birthday to you, little Wy-Ty. Can’t believe you’ll be three tomorrow. We love you so.
See y’all after the beach! Julie
