This was from that snow day we had back in February. The government was closed on Thursday AND Friday because of the snow and then Monday was President\’s Day so it was one nice LONG weekend in Washington,

What we do when we are just around the house doing our normal thing.
First Day of Spring 2014
It is hard to believe today is the first day of Spring! It is supposed to be 60 degrees today. It is sunny and beautiful and I plan on taking a break at lunch to find some bulbs that are starting to
Our Big Transition 2013
What a year 2013 was for us! And now that 2014 is here (after lots of changes in our lives in 2013) I decided I wanted to start blogging again.
At the end of 2012 we sat down and talked about our
Cable Knit Sock Slippers
My Hot Pink REI Down Booties arrived and they are SO warm! They are pretty ugly. But I am just wearing them around the house. I can even put my feet up on the couch because they are so light and they
Super Warm House Slippers
Moving north has been one of the best things that has ever happened to us! The weather is absolutely fantastic! It is so refreshing to take James outside for a walk – the cool air is perfect. For the
Ephemeral Films Project
It\’s been a while since I last posted anything but given all of the recent changes going on around here it\’s been a bit tough to find the time.
I have two ongoing personal projects and as of this
2013 Holiday Decor
I can\’t believe the holidays are almost here! I was looking through Pottery Barn\’s website for some candles since Chris and I like to burn several big pillar candles in the fireplace instead of firewood.
A Wide Wedding Ceremony Aisle
I saw this wedding featured in Martha Stewart Weddings and the super wide aisle caught my eye! I rarely see nice wide wedding ceremony aisles. Most locations are tight on space so there is barely enough
Ian Stuart – Southern Belle Wedding Dress
I would love to wear this Ian Stuart “Belle” wedding dress! I would have an old south southern belle theme and I would get married on a plantation in Charleston, South Carolina!
I love the one shoulder
September 11th – 12 years later
I can\’t believe it has been 12 years since 9/11. I still miss living in NYC and finding a bench below the twin towers to lay on my back and stare up. I wrote so many journal entries sitting at the base
This is a post I never wanted to write. But I knew the day would come. We lost our sweet Goblin on Wednesday morning, July 31, 2013.
He had been in great spirits for months – playing with James,
Happy 4th of July!
Happy 4th of July! Katy Perry is one of my favorite artists and she knows how to rock her red, white and blue!
Photo Booth – Rear Projection
I saw this idea on Martha Stewart Weddings. It is a photo booth with a rear projection and props. You can change the photo since it is just a digital projection.
I really like the idea but I wonder
2013 Volkswagen Beetle
Is it just me or is the new 2013 Volkswagen Beetle looking sleeker? It used to be so round and it now has more of an Infiniti FX shape to it!
The new VW Beetle:
The Infiniti FX (still my favorite car!):
Why mediocre is awesome!
It\’s funny how many times I\’ve tried to create something only to dump it after weeks of work because it wasn\’t good enough and I thought that starting over would be a better option. I\’m sure I\’m
Dove Commercial – You are more beautiful than you think
This is another commercial I saw during my week of cable at a friend\’s house that I loved! I seriously think I need to get cable again just to watch the commercials!
This one is from Dove and it is
Another great commercial – beautiful imperfections
This ad is sad but it celebrates the beautiful imperfections that make a relationship perfect.
Purple Poodle in the DSW Spring 2013 Commercial
I was out of town last week visiting a family friend and we were winding down at night watching TV. Chris and I cancelled our cable a few years ago in an effort to me more productive with our time (which
Outdoor Patio Furniture
Really pretty patio furniture is hard to find for us – we don\’t want anything too big (our patio is medium sized). Right now we have the Hawthorne bistro set from Target – two chairs and a table. And
