With those breezy curtains. Still no baby!

for baby here. Still no go! I think I'm going to take a little blogging break. But I'll be sure to post a few baby pics. In the meantime, check out interior styist Katie Seller's site. Wish me luck!

Getting There

With this new house, I gained the best and worst yard I've ever had. By that I mean I never had so much of a space, which is fantastic especially in a city setting. But the worst part is it has pretty much gone untouched for 10 years. You can all guess what that does to a yard. But the last few days brought some serious improvements compliments of sweat equity. Hubbie really needed to get a mental break, si I think it helped him digging in the soil a bit and planting some grass seed. It certainly doesn't look near as good as these fabulous spaces, but its progress. One can dream.

Happy Easter!

I wanted to wish all my readers a wonderful, peaceful weekend. My crazy life consists of a husband in the hospital (he's ok and coming home today), a baby coming ANY day now it seems, and a three year old excited for the Easter Bunny. That's how it goes!

PS Dreaming of actually sleeping in the bedroom as well. It's been about three years and counting now.

A Life Examined

Searching for some new books for my library early this morning, I came across this amazing photo of Truman Copote by Slim Aarons for sale.

I immediately got a shot of adrenaline, thinking how we all need to strive for style, humor, and authenticity in our lives. Truman had it all.

PS For a mere $3500 bucks, the photo is yours.
