Dream House

How truly amazing is this house?! Friends, I give you my dream home! I love how airy it is and the zen feel of it. The clean lines plus the mix of so much lush greenery makes it feel like a breath of fresh air. The Sun House ( perfect name?) in Singapore was designed by Guz Architects.

Irene's Fury

Roof blown into the water
Snapped trees everywhere
Harris Teeter passing out water and ice
Bent metal Dollar General sign
Down trees everywhere
My sis-in-law Janie enjoying a moment of relief in the eye of the hurricane. Notice her cute rain boots :)
Irene made herself known all over the east coast this weekend, mainly doing the most destruction in North Carolina and Virginia. My brother and sis-in-law were one of the unlucky ones who got the first hit, enduring almost 48 hours of the hurricane's fury.

At one point the eye was over them and they went outside to survey the damage and let their poor dogs use the bathroom for the first time in hours! They were sending me updates the entire time and even threw in a few photos of their poor pups who were absolutely stir crazy.

Did you encounter Irene? Was it better or worse than you thought it was going to be?

Well this isn't good.

The red dot is my brother and sis-in-law's house. Darn it. For anyone about to encounter Irene please be safe and smart and GET OUT of her way!

Shorts Suit..are you a fan?

Are you a fan of the emerging trend of shorts suits? I've seen these around and have to admit that I'm loving them, although, I'm a little hesitant if I can actually pull one off. I've even seen some that are quite reminiscent of my old 80's track suits (like this)..let's just hope and pray that those NEVER come back!

It's my one year blogiversary!

Today is officially my one year blogiversary. I want to take a moment to thank all of you from the depths of my heart for all of the love and support you have given me over the past year...

It's no secret that it's been one of the best years of my life. I married the most amazing man ever and it was he who pushed me to stand proud and share more about myself with the world. Starting this blog taught me that it's okay to feel vulnerable and that you're not growing unless you're a little uncomfortable. I have managed to meet some of the most amazing people from all over the world that I know will be long-lasting relationships. Blogging has become part of my daily life and I feel like something is missing in my week when I don't do a post. Thank you all, especially the ones who have been there from the very beginning, as my little blog was a mere 3 posts with 2 followers. I appreciate all of you more than you will ever know and thank you so much for every comment, every email and every shout out that you never had to give.

Thank you for all the support!

Creating "Lagoon"

I just want to take a moment to thank everyone for such amazing support as we have begun our adventure of rolling out our online shop. I've been SO extremely busy on new paintings and commissioned works (not complaining of course!) and appreciate the love more than you will ever know.  We had to skip the market last weekend for Josh's wares because he had simply sold out. Thank you, thank you, thank you again for supporting our small business and allowing us to do what we love to do..create.

I'm loving honeycomb motif patterns right now, a staple in modern design. It was deemed the pattern of the year and I think we're safe to say it's definitely made it's mark in all areas of design once again.

Are you a fan of the lovely geometric pattern or is it too much for you?

Is it just me?

Is it just me or is this time of the year abnormally busy for most? I can barely keep up with the multitude of projects and things that I have my hands in right now. I sort of feel like this actually...

What do you do when you feel overwhelmed? I've decided that I'm actually going to take a day to relax this weekend, unwind and set all things aside. My apologies for the lack of posts this week- it's just been one of those weeks!

Heavy wood tables

I'm dying over these heavy wood tables right now and can't wait to build our own custom one when we move next year (Like Rachel from A Touch of Gray did here). I love the idea of a wooden table that you can actually nick and scratch up without refreshing!

My new necklace {thank you Blue Door Boutique!}

My obsession with necklaces have never been a secret ( I'm truly obsessed!). So when I walked into The Blue Door Boutique recently I bee-lined for this beautiful green enamel necklace right away. They always have the BEST clothing and accessories and the most helpful and sweet staff.

If you're ever in Columbus, Georgia you must make a point to visit my childhood friend, Amber Mordic's shop, The Blue Door Boutique. I promise you will walk out happy and looking good!

Fall 2011 Look: Wide Leg Jeans

Flared jeans at Derek Lam SS11

High-waist and subtle flared leg at ADAM SS11
With skinny jeans on everyone and oh-so common that they no longer make a statement, it was inevitable that fashion designers would turn the other way. I, for one, am SO excited about this simply because I don't think that skinny jeans flatter me so well.

What do you think? Are you a skinny jean lover or a loyal wide-leg-er?
