ISLA EVERLY


You can officially call me mama! This little bundle of sweetness entered the world on March 2nd at 1:05a, and weighed in at 6 pounds 13 ounces. We were expecting her February 22nd, so we were elated when we finally got to lay eyes on this little face. Totally worth the wait :) It's been a smooth transition from hospital to home, and we're simply enjoying every minute of getting to know her.

So why no blog or instagram pregnancy announcement? First, let me say that I so enjoy sharing what inspires me on the blog and giving peeks into my home on instagram. And in turn, I love seeing snippets of your lives. It's hard to explain, but keeping the news of the pregnancy close to home just felt right, and I went with that feeling. We had so much fun day dreaming and talking about what she'd be like and who she'd look like (we have no idea, we do know she's ours, but we're waiting to see exactly who she looks most like). And now we are bursting with happiness and soaking in every moment. We're overwhelmed with the joy and privilege of being the parents of this little girl. We couldn't be more excited and grateful to call her ours.

More on this news and a peek into her nursery comin' soon, but right now I gotta get back to mastering the art of "the pump and dump" because I haven't had a drink since last June and I need a dirty martini, like yesterday . . .

PATIO PLANS


We spent the large part of last summer (and our budget) on landscaping the patios and the front and back yards. With that behind us (thank god because building fences and laying tons and tons of rock and pavers is not something I'm aiming to repeat for awhile), my focus is now on to furnishing and styling the patios. For the backyard patio, that the master bedroom opens up to, I want a place to relax in the morning and entertain larger groups in the evenings, and for the side patio off of the living room I want to create an informal seating area to enjoy breakfasts and gather with friends around the fire pit. I'm suuuper excited to get things movin' on these patios. One of the main reasons we were drawn to this house was the outdoor living spaces, so I'm anxious to create an outdoor oasis around our little city house and enjoy the summer!
