Sweet baby girl likes to cuddle with Manny or pink bear. Life is good.

Swimming holes . . . our state is full of them and I love this one. Okay, I didn't actually go swimming but the view was fantastic.
They're debating whether to go for it or inch in. The water is pretty cold!
Harrison is keeping up with cousins J and D.
Trying to find that perfect skipping stone . . .

My mom let me crash her garden club meeting tour this evening. Their vegetable garden was amazing and I was green with envy.
She grows her blueberries in giant, black plastic containers and mixed the soil with leaves and pine needles.
Bottle trees are pretty popular in these parts of the woods. This is still on my wish list (hint, hint Ryan) and the blue captures the lighting just right.
Need a use for a rusty wheel barrel? Make it into a herb garden!

A historic house tour + beautiful skies = a perfect mother's day. Thanks mom for coming along :)
Do you how you can tell a pie safe is authentic? If the holes are punched from the inside out that way it prevents bugs from stealing nibbles.
Another interesting fact, back-in-the-day celery was a special treat so the hostess would display it in a special celery vase. The guests would admire the beauty then later chop down on it.
This is side view of P. Allen Smith's city home garden. My favorite boxwoods and terra cotta pots.
Here's an idea...putting large shutters next to your garden shed door.
Here's a shot of creative shelving on the side of the shed. Go ahead and turn your pots over or tip them to the side.
I'm digging this walkway!

I had the honor of attending a Mother's Day program at Harrison's school. He decorated the placemat, card and bag for me :) Inside the card it said, "I love my mommy because she makes me breakfast." Good to know!
Nothing better than fresh picked strawberries, nothing worse than sitting on an ant hill. We experience both today. Unfortunately it was Harrison who discovered the ants in the pants! He said he never wants to go back!

This week has been one of the hardest I've had in quite awhile. After 8 years, I've decided to resign from my art director position so I can spend more quality time with my hubby and monkeys. I've been super stress lately with work and home that I knew in my heart I needed a change. Time goes by so fast I'm afraid I'll wake up one morning and realized I missed out on these young years.
I recently read a quote "Leap and a net will appear." I've had to repeat this to myself quite a few times. We're a little concerned how to survive financially but I have faith it will work out. I'm looking for part-time and/or freelance opportunities. Anyone interested ;) At least now I'll finally have enough time to start my Etsy store!

Anthropologie, oh how I love thee! Great place for inspiration. It's hard to tell from this image but these are hanging paint sticks dipped in a solid color then splattered with other colors. I recently saw someone using paint sticks to cover an outdoor table.
Water knobs as hooks?!! Too cool.
Hmmm, the ideas are flowing and flowing. I need to start a journal!

I'm working on updating my office area. Nana gave me a bunch of her milk glass and I've been trying to figure out the best spot to display. My friend Sara came over and we brainstormed different solutions. I decided to possibly paint the back wall of the built-in a yellow hue. I'm lovin' the names . . . Lemon Sorbet, Zinnia Gold, Sunflower, Macaw, Mellow Yellow, Empire Yellow. Oh the choices!

Look who's 10 months today!!! This was the only decent shot I could get of Miss Busy-Britches. It's still play, play, play for Miss Waverly. She loves for us to chase her around the house and she's getting pretty fast. She also plays fetch with herself which is super cute.
The front two teeth are in so that makes a total of four chompers. She's using her sign language for more, all done and waving hi/bye. Dada is her favorite word. She imitates dog's barking "ouff, ouff, ouff."
We all love you so much little Way-Way.
