Around Our Home

We've been up to a lot around the house lately! With the new baby arriving in a couple of weeks, we thought it would be a great time to tear down part of our house and rebuild it... of course. Here are a few snapshots documenting our progress! Eleanor has more personality than ever and LOVES being in front of the camera... see photos for evidence. We have had so much help on this home from day one we could not have gotten this far without some really incredible friends and family.

Praying that baby stays in a bit longer so we can finish this thing up!

And guys, let me tell you about my man. He has worked his butt off to get us to where we are now and I've never been more thankful for him and his character. He never complains, he just puts his head down and works. Those two men in the photo above could accomplish anything together, I'm sure of it.

And as always, thanks Carolann for the photos! (she saw me trying to snap a few with my phone and wasn't having it... what would we do without her?)

Holiday Wallpaper

I'm officially in the holiday spirit which led to the creation of a new wallpaper! And what better text to script than the lyrics of my favorite Christmas song? I hope you all enjoy!

O holy night
The stars are brightly shining
It is the night of our dear Savior's birth
Long lay the world in sin and error pining
Till he appeared and the soul felt it's worth

The thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices
For yonder brinks a new and glorious morn
Fall on your knees

O hear the angel voices
O night divine
O night when Christ was born
O night divine
O night, O night divine

There is one for your desktop and one for your phone, if you'd like! Find the links at the bottom to download! Happy Holiday season!

In The Office | 8.16

Once about every 6 months or so, I go through the painstaking task of cleaning up the endless piles of paper, ink spilled scratch sheets, and empty amazon boxes in my office. It's a full day affair and the result is usually glorious! I can see just about every inch of my desktop and even actually use it!

I went through this process last month to get the office ready for a shoot with San Antonio Magazine (check it out here) and so naturally Carolann pulled out her camera to capture this rare state! And what style office shoot can take place without a baby in my lap. E loves to sit on my lap when I'm at my desk, usually because I give her a paintbrush or pen of some sort to entertain her. I love her so much!

Enjoy a look into my creative space!

At Home | 10.15

My favorite place to be at any given time is at home. My favorite place to be while at home is our front porch. We have spent so much time on that porch. It quickly became our second living space once we moved in. Especially since our living room was frequently undergoing major renovation. We rocked Eleanor to sleep as a newborn in the porch swing. We enjoyed deep conversation with good friends. We met so many of our neighbors just by being outside on that porch. Not to mention the endless times the porch has been set up as a makeshift woodshop as house renovations were underway.
I love our front porch.

We had Carolann take some family photos a while back and there was no better setting than that front porch so I thought I'd share a few. (E was still so tiny!)

Fall Wallpaper

The (slightly) cooler fall weather is slowly arriving and I think that is worth celebrating! My sweet girl and I took a walk at the park this morning without breaking a sweat! We are so happy you are here again, Fall! 

The cooler weather inspired me to grab a hot cup of coffee and create a fall inspired desktop and wallpaper. This quote has been on the forefront of my mind at all times lately so it seemed an appropriate addition to my desktop.
