Still Here!

Monday, August 5, 2013

In case you think I've been spending these last few weeks of summer lounging poolside, let me assure you I've been a busy (tired) girl.  I'll give you a quick rundown of what I've been up to.

First, we took a last-minute vacation to Washington, DC. Have you been?  This was my first trip there and it was one of my favorite vacations ever!  The highlights:

We visited George Washington's Mount Vernon - a lovely historic mansion on an impossibly beautiful piece of property on the Potomac River.

We also spent a busy day at The Smithsonian Museum of Natural History 

and we had the good fortune of being able to witness The Changing of the Guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery.

Closer to home, I finished painting Shelby's room and moved in her furniture.

And I have to give her props - she chose the wall color (Sherwin Williams Meander Blue), the paint colors for all the furniture, the bedding(from Target) , the end tables and the lamps. #futurepartnerinthemaking .

AND finally, I saved the biggest most amazing/exciting news for last.

This little guy is the newest member of our family as of Thursday afternoon at 4:13!!!   We are already head over heels in love with Rylan and thrilled that he, my daughter Alyssa and her fiance are going to be staying with us for the next few weeks. Is there anything more wonderful than having a baby in the house?  

I also have some client project updates to share with you soon, so stay tuned for that. 

Life is good!  Hope you are enjoying your last few weeks of summer!
