world famous photographer

My husbands photography was featured on my favorite art blog (art stormer) today.

These 3 photos are from our recent spring break. I have yet to go through them so I thought I could share some of his.

Please stop by and say hi.


I only have one word for the new matchbook magazine....
You won't want to miss all of the beautiful images and more.


gen's favorites

My long time readers might remember different posts that I have done on my friend Gen.
As you can see by these pictures of her home from Cookie Magazine she is very creative. (She has also been in a bunch of other things including Domino.)
I am always in awe of how she and Ben can edit edit edit. (She is wearing one of my shirts in this photo!)
Gen always seems to be working on a new house or project.
Her beautiful wedding was in Martha Stewart. (We got to do the flower girl dresses.)
I am so excited that one of her newest endevors is a BLOG! She has just started but I know it will be one of my favorites.
Gen is always finding the best things at great prices. (Like the goodies below for 75 cents)

Please go check it out and leave her a comment. (You know what it is like when you are the new girl at school.)



I am totally obsessed with this dress. This is exactly what I want to wear right now, just a little shorter.



The sun is trying to come out but it is still too cold to start planting flowers in Nashville. I am itching to head to Home Depot and get flats full of flowers. Petunias are one of my favorites.
Even if it is too cold for real petunias this beautiful watercolor by Jacqueline Gnott at $85 could hold me over for a few weeks.

How about you? What flowers are you going to plant this spring?



I love the fresh look of blue and white ikat. I discovered these on my friend Kat's Blog. She found them at Target.

What could be better than these melamine plates as we head into picnics and dinners outside?



I have not had a chance to weed through our photos from the Bahamas. I found out that when one photographer marries another photographer guess what their kids love to do? Between all of us we took 7,000 photos!

I did find the top photo that my husband took for our email blast this week. So now I only have 6,999 photos to look through.

How do you like to wear a tunic?


favorite reads

While away I got to do lots of reading. These three were my favorites.

Have you read any of these? Did you love them as much as I did? I am hoping to go through some of our vacation photos soon.


far away

This morning we hopped on a flight to see my parents on the way to the Bahamas for spring break.
We will be with out computers and cell phones for a week. I am so excited. Here are a few pics of my mothers beautiful table. My brother and his beautiful family were able to join us for dinner.

And I can't blog for long because I can't wait to fall asleep in the most beautiful guest room.
I am realizing that I should have taken more pictures for you.
I hope that you all have a great week!


Out of Africa

I remember loving Out of Africa when it came out years ago but had forgotten most of the story. We rented it the other night and I was not disappointed.
The Sydney Pollack film starring Meryl Streep and Robert Redford is a feast for the eyes.
It is going on my list of all time favorites.
How about you? What are some of your "not THAT old" favorites.


happy dress

This watercolor by Caitlin McGauley via Lonny made me smile this morning. We are counting down the days until spring break.......8.


race to nowhere

I went to a screening of race to nowhere this week. It was not as in depth as I would have liked but I do think that it is a great discussion starter. I have always been a big believer in lots of free time for our children. (Or perhaps I am just lazy.) I have also experienced the frustrations of having a child at a school that was not a good fit.

I have learned that there are usually more options than we might first see. Life and childhood are far to precious to needlessly suffer through.

Have you seen this movie? What did you think?

I also read this book earlier this year. It has a lot of great things to say. I would highly recommend it for anyone with school aged children.



I am in the mood for some new denim. Something fresh even though we are not in full on spring mode. (The above is a little email blast that we put together today.)

How about you? What is your closet craving?
