I had this cutie for a date to a beauty of a wedding in Mt. Juliet this weekend

IMG_2822

the groom and bride radiated love, their joy was palpable

Mozel Tov Patrick and Erica!

my darling parents

(I only wish I’d known how hip they are when I lived with them)

IMG_2837

these gals know how to have fun

IMG_2830

so does this one

IMG_2831

her “sprinkler” dance move is epic

IMG_2832

her “boogie on down”  isn’t too bad either

IMG_2834

ah, Ava- I will break out my “boogie on down” at your wedding

this morning, I woke up early

unable to go back to sleep, I decided I needed a little chevron cheer

so I made this wreath while the coffee brewed

it’s that fast y’all

I should have been shaking this chevron wreath way before now

IMG_2797

this is the sad state of my craft room

but I love having a zone for all my project goodness

IMG_2804

after work, a Hobby Lobby run

and more chevron shaking baby

while crafting around, I found this photo of my Ava girl

I knew I needed the visual reminder to focus on joy

and this girl, she knows joy

IMG_2783

she brought me these, with a little grin

they make my spring mantle sing

so very puzzled

IMG_2777

I am so very heartbroken by the tragedy in Boston

I am so very puzzled by the brutality and the capacity for evil to wrap itself in a shell of a human

A friend is told she is no longer needed after 28 year of faithful service

I am baffled by bureaucratic priorities that value  the bottom line more than all else

we’re all hurried, stressed, pulled in many directions

frantic for hope, for rest

so I pray and breathe

and buy flowers and cook dinner and paint my kitchen

and spin and put one foot in front of the other

sometimes that’s the only brave thing we can do

Ta-Da!

sooooo here is the new laundry room!

IMG_2738

just a reminder of before

IMG_2657

now the details

IMG_2740

shelf on wall across from washer and dryer, hello crafty goodness!

IMG_2739

extended view into mud room

IMG_2743

my work station with more storage behind the chevron

IMG_2744

as you can see, we still need to paint the clothes rack and install laundry sink

but we’re calling it mostly done

it was a bit more work than either of us had anticipated

Joey the Rock Star Husband gets full props for the fabulous work

I need props for living in major laundry chaos for four weeks

there is just something about

drywall dust, removing old linoleum, and having a washer in my kitchen

that made me feel cray-cray!

here’s the before of the living room

IMG_2659

and the after

IMG_2735

that little yellow puff

IMG_2736

well it followed me home and I was helpless against it’s charms
