My Life in Pictures

Of course things at work were super dead.  I had some time on my hands so I was working furiously on some fascinating posts for you. Alas, things went from 0 to a million and I have finished none of said posts to share with you.

I started noticing butterflies everywhere.

Maybe it's because we got this for the boys: The caterpillars are morphing into butterflies as we speak.





There were butterflies over at the 'Crew (both 30% off right n…

Inspiration

Hi there.
I was going through Houzz this morning, looking for ideas for the patio area around our pool.
(Hopefully, it won't be looking like {this} much longer!)

Houzz is such a great place to get ideas and inspiration.


Here are some of my favorite images: (all taken by the very talented Rikki Snyder)
