We’re already at the six month mark. This was us 6 months ago. We were exhausted. But we were back home. Fast forward 6 months. It has been a whirlwind. And so much has happened. We finished another renovation. Opened two new businesses. I had back surgery. And we are still standing. We love our home. There is nothing we would change. We have enjoyed many days and nights on our back porch. (The swing bed is divine!) We have our own little vacation –  right in our own home. From waking up in the most comfortable bedroom, to bathing in a light-soaked bathroom, to getting ready in a great dressing room – all while listening to music pour through the house – it is fabulous. I’ll fill you in on what’s happened since we’ve moved in. From Thanksgiving to 1/1/15 we had SIX major parties. Thanksgiving, tour of homes, street Christmas party, Christmas,...

Well – we did it! What a long and grueling four weeks this has been. It’s been especially grueling with my back. As some of you may know, I have been struggling with major back issues for the last couple of years. These last few weeks have practically broken me –  and I’m seriously ready for some R&R.  2015 will be the year that I will finally rid myself of this problem – whether it be holistically or surgically. But despite this bad back and fighting a cold – we did it – with a lot of help from our friends! We pushed our builder, Ryan, to get us in on time – and he delivered! We all knew we were a little premature getting in, and those first two weeks were pure chaos – with almost 20 people a day working at our home. For those of you that have lived through a renovation – I salute you. I could not imagine living for...

We’re on the Midtown Tour of Homes 12/6!

Thanksgiving was so much fun – and we really broke in our home just right. 17 for Thanksgiving dinner and about 30 four our Low Country Boil. Now we are  scrambling to get ready for Saturday’s Midtown Tour of Homes. If you are in Atlanta this weekend – you can get tickets here. Come on over and say hi! We’ll have tickets for sale at the door. The home is still not 100% complete – so there are a few folks here this week scurrying to finish up.  Wendy is in the cellar doing the cork walls and the painters are here finishing up the exterior. Our goal is to be decorated for Christmas and ready to show everything.  What a good feeling this will be to be completely unpacked and show ready. Wish us luck. (After the holidays you’ll find me taking one LONG nap on the porch...

It takes a village

It has been  LONG and EXHAUSTING couple of weeks. But we are in and almost unpacked. While the movers were busy unloading, Scott and his crew were busy making sure that we’d have beautiful rooms before the first week was over. They succeeded! We love our new artwork from Jenny Anderson in the dining room. It goes so well with a piece I got from my parents from the early 1970s. The music room still has a few items left to go- a chair and blue tile on the lower portion of the mantle – but it’s actively being used by Addison and I – and we’ve have enjoyed plucking on the piano and starting lessons. The lounge off the kitchen is so comfortable and cozy. We absolutely love our home. I’m still coming to terms with this new and de-cluttered style, but I really love it and love how much easier it will be to keep up than how we had decorated in the past....
