grateful

For a girlfriend whose been there through thick-and-thin.

I imagine this was my first and last time seeing Madonna, but what a show and what a night.

Attendees were either middle-aged women in gloves gripping a beer in each hand, sunglasses and tutus in all their middle-aged glory, or men who came with other men.  Not many exceptions.

 

We are middle-aged-ish, but no gloves.  Jennifer did sport a mini sequin number, but she runs five miles a day.  Me, no so much–yet, anyway!

 

proof of said women:

 

My friend, Jen, and me

 

Grateful for a getaway last week with my husband to Charleston.  We both got reacquainted with one another and we both feel in love with this historical southern city by the sea.  So much so we started looking at real estate.  We just felt like we fit in.

 

 

We had a little star sighting.  Lauren Hutton is even prettier in person, and the epitome of style.

 

Grateful to Lisa Mowry and Atlanta Magazine for featuring us in December’s issue…

what an honor!

 

 

Grateful for an amazing friend, Anisa–she is so kind & talented.  Here a few pictures of her girls’ rooms:

(big girl’s room:)

 

forgive the cheesy watermark.  Pinterest makes them almost necessary, though.

 

 

 

and the baby’s room:

 

 

 

 

I hope your tummies and hearts are full today.  Don’t you love the day after Thanksgiving?

 

I’m signing off for awhile, and to be honest, might be signing off for good.  I have just grown very weary of blogging lately, and I imagine my posts reflect it.  I just feel God tugging on me in another direction, and I have no idea what that is.  I need time away to devote to Him for discernment and prayer.  You know when you feel those winds of change blowing in?  Exhilarating and fear-creating all at once?  The weathervane of my heart says those winds are close.  My apologies for always been so deep and melancholy, it is just the was I was made.

 

Peace and love to my readers….what a journey.

five things I’m loving

Isn’t October glorious?

My little big man turns 6 today, so it is one of my favorite days in the world.  He is something else.

1.  So my Liam is number one today of things I love.

 

2.

I’m so in love with our new houndstooth rug.  Gridley + Graves will be here next week so I had to change things up a bit.

 

Now I have a good excuse to eat out–I am only doing research on good restaurant design.

The bathroom at our favorite restaurant, Bistro VG, is amazing.  All of designer Michelle Sedgwick’s work inspires me so.  The limestone trough sink has so much glorious patina!

and lucite pulls on the doors:

 

Anisa and I get to travel to Rosemary Beach to see the restaurant in-person next week.  Here is the “before”.  The “after” won’t come til December.

 

3.  I’m loving our clients’ progress photos….

new barnwood in this living room:

 

and vertical boards below:

 

just the addition of one light and two chairs can really change a room:

 

And a very large living room calls for not one, but two, coffee tables

 

4.  Loving this log cabin kitchen (featured in Southern Living) It is just chock full of style.

 

5.  Anisa’s little one’s nursery.  It is the sweetest room–we will share the rest of it soon!

you gotta really look to see the leopard crib sheet.  It’s my favorite :)
