Lately

Life lately has been crazier than I expected. Evans is on the GO GO GO nonstop now, and I find it hard to keep up! Thank goodness for her school play days, otherwise I know she would be incredibly bored at home with me. I'm just not as interesting as 8-10 other 1 year olds. :) 

She's into her books, her shoes, her diapers, my magazines, Daddy's work stuff, empty boxes, or just whatever happens to be in her path. Things only keep her attention for about 3 seconds before she's on to the next attraction. Recently she discovered the door knobs and how they get those big doors open. Oh me. Time for some major child-proofing.







After what has felt like a good month of sickness, our whole family is finally well. It probably won't last long, but for now we are a sniffle-free group. Hooray! I love this time of year, but hate it for all of the germs and colds. 

Can't believe tomorrow is THANKSGIVING! I am sooooo ready to be with our crazy fam. It's been TWO YEARS since I've gotten to join in on the fun, and I am so looking forward to being back to normal this year. Thanksgiving is a big deal on my mom's side. The whole gang gets together- all 60 plus of us. I have lost count. With all these babies being born and babies on the way, who can keep up? I can at least keep up with the turkey, dressing, sweet potato casserole, and chocolate cake in store for me. 

It's been raining NONSTOP in Savannah lately. Happy to see sunshine over the water this afternoon. Rain is a real bummer! I also know why stay-at-home moms dislike gray skies. Talk about cabin fever...Makes everybody crazy.




I finished up two HUGE panel commissions today. These guys are so big I had to work off the floor with them! Insane. Can't wait to see how they look in the client's space! 



Alright, have a GREAT holiday everyone! Eat, drink, and be thankful! God bless you and yours.

Five on Friday!



ONE- BRRR It's COLD

Okay, yes I'm a baby when it comes to cold weather. I realize that Savannah, GA doesn't get all THAT cold in comparison to the rest of the country, but this past week has been my own little weather nightmare! Highs at 50 is not okay with this girl. But, how beautiful is Wormsloe Plantation even so? Gorgeous even in winter. Man, I love living on Isle of Hope! 

 

 TWO- My ALMOST 1 year old?

How did this happen? If I'm being honest though, this has been the longest, but the greatest, year of my life. A lot of my friends feel like the first year flew by, I feel like it's been forever since I had this little girl. And yet at the same time, it is as if I've known her all my life. In any event, she's turning one in three short weeks! We are planning to do a small family gathering (well technically anything involving my huge family can't be small) to celebrate. Love my little Evans.


THREE- PARENTHOOD

Parenthood is probably my favorite show on TV right now, even though it makes me cry every Thursday. I can't believe this is the farewell season! Christina is my favorite character. She's such the MOM's MOM, right? The type of mom we all aspire to be? I will be so sad when the show ends. Four episodes left, are you kidding me?! TEAM JOEL!

 FOUR- ART

I've added some new art to my shop, and have been able to finish up several commissions. Thank you all again for letting me share my work. It's an honor as an artist for someone to choose your vision to be a part of their home. XO






FIVE- Turkey Day!

The last two years we've had to miss out on a Savannah Thanksgiving. Last year, I was 39 weeks pregnant and living in Atlanta. The year before that, our dog Blakely girl was having surgery. I'm so excited that we will be in attendance this year, and that the drive is way shorter now that we actually live here!! YEA! I look forward to all the food, and I've also been dying to try one of the cocktails floating around Pinterest. Have y'all tried any?

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Furniture Arrived

My parents' new bedroom is still needing some styling and accessorizing done, but the space is at least functional now. My mom said they are staying in there now and loving it. I am so glad, they are so deserving of a nice new space. They work so hard when they should both be retired and loving it! ;) 

Here's a few quick pictures of the progress!


Most of the furniture is from WhitAsh in Columbia, SC. My dad has made a couple pieces for the room, including this table which is still in progress. 


Hoping to help them finalize the room in the next couple of weeks so it can officially be finished! I'll be sure to do a full source list then. 

Anyone else working on a renovation? Isn't it exciting to see it come to life!
