We have been a little swamped and a teensy bit overwhelmed with a few projects both work and non-work related, but regular posts will resume soon! Elliott picked this flower for me yesterday while we were outside working in the yard (which is coming together nicely!) and he was a bit heartbroken today to see that it was slumped over and starting to wilt. After a brief and simple explanation he thought about it and replied "next time, I'll give you the dirt too." Almost my dear, but not quite. I hope your week is going splendidly. Happy Wednesday!


We officially moved into our new apartment. All of our things have been here since last week, but we weren't sleeping here until this weekend. It feels great to have our own place again! Even though we both are feeling under the weather, we have been cleaning and unpacking to make this apartment our own as soon as possible. It's a very old house (built in 1885!) and I am in love with all of the character that comes with it. The floors are extra squeaky and the claw foot tub! That might be my favorite thing about the place. I'm excited to get it all in order and do a little photo tour! Don't hold your breath though, it could be a long time coming. I hope you had a great weekend and hope your week is off to a great start!


Sorry about the late post. But I have to excuse myself since we have been APARTMENT HUNTING. I think we have found the perfect apartment for us and I am over the moon excited about it. More to come on that section of our lives soon. In other news, we went rock hunting this weekend to make more of these. And we used a ding dong box to collect them. Hope your week is off to a great start!


Yep, Elliott has started preschool. Today was his first day and of course I took some "1st day" pictures.  He was beyond excited. As you can see. He really loved going to "his school". According to him they "saw boys, saw girls, colored an orange path, made triangles and sat on the rug." It's only two hours, two days per week, but I think it is going to be great for him. We can only hope anyway! I know I will enjoy having a few hours every week to work on things kiddo free, but I think Ruby (the pup) will enjoy some Elliott free time as well.
This was some kind of "first day of school" jig he kept doing. Pretty great.
Would you look at that cheesy face? 


With having a car again comes the needed and oh so fun car wash! It's such a great warm weather activity and Elliott absolutely loved helping. And of course, I'm game for any activity that involves my boy in his swim shorts :)

I hope you have a great weekend, friends. We have some plans I'm pretty excited about. Fun and relaxing. Doesn't get much better than that! Happy weekend! Here are my favorite links for the week, enjoy!

Grilled peaches just might go with everything.

Beautiful DIY shelving.

Drum box!


Pretty, pretty curtain rods.


Love these cubes.
