One, Two, Three, Four...

I was going through a few of my old inspiration boards and realized it has been quite some time since I have done my four things series. Well it's back! At least for today that is. Oh, and the shelves are meant to go in the kitchen. I am also realizing my definition of "done" must change. Our new home is a rental. One we will be in for quite some time, but it will not be my so called dream house and I will have to just be okay with that.  I know there are a few things that could be changed in this home to make it stunning, but they are not musts and I am coming to terms with the need to make it "good enough" and actually be happy with that. The latter is actually the hardest. This week I am going to try my hardest to use pieces that I brought from our old home and make them work in this home. To stop thinking about the pieces I could purchase and be happy with what we have. Yes, there are some things that are a must, but I need more decor pieces like I need a hole in my head. Now to see if I can really make this work. Of course next week I could be singing a whole new tune, but I sure do hope not. I really do need to walk in this house and feel "done" and the contentment that comes along with that. My old home took 6 years to decorate and I don't have that luxury here.

It's all good

We are back and my plan on blogging while away completely failed. I call that a good thing though. I completely disconnected besides answering a few pressing emails and reconnected with the Mr. My life revolves around the kiddos and I am well aware so it was nice to just stop and recharge. I now feel refreshed and ready to tackle so many projects that have been looming. I will be back next week to share some images and my new found love for Miami.Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

pop

Not too bad of a day when you are asked to be part of POPSUGAR select. I always love making new connections and meeting new people. Plus I'm hoping it keeps me more in the know. Ha. Sometimes I feel like this little ole blog flies blind at times. We are currently headed to Key West! You can always following along on our trip via Instagram and as always I will share more once I'm back and have extra pretty photos to share. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

did you know? 

Did you happen to know that Kelly Wearstler has a jewelry line? How did I miss that I am not sure of. It does prove that I am not a fashion blogger. The designs are stunning though. Here are a few that are now on my wish list!

and we are off!

Today the Mr and I are off on our 10 year anniversary trip! He has completely planned it and I am just along for the ride. Our first stop is Miami. We are staying a few days at the Viceroy and I could not be more thrilled. He really did pick all the accommodations by what I would like. I think he hopes it will entice me to say in most days. Was that too much? Ha. The hotel was designed by the ever fabulous Kelly Wearstler. Her work is so dramatic and so over the top, but she does it with such style and grace. I am just so excited to enjoy some time with the Mr and rejuvenate our marriage with out having to think of daily tasks at hand {even if I don't really mind those daily tasks}. I am ready for some time in the sun, good food, a good read, and long talks. This trip also is our first that I will be away longer than two nights. Pray for me mama's!
