Hi there! Do you like my completely random posts? Could I be any more of a loser blogger? I have a simple answer: summer. I’ve come to the conclusion that summertime for Moms is like tax season for Accountants. It is nonstop action that soaks up about 15-17 hours of your day. Don’t get me wrong, it’s definitely fun, but it takes endurance! I dove in head first the second school was out the last weekend of May and I feel like I haven’t come up for air since. That being said, one of our youngest little birds in the nest has been off and on ill for the past three weeks. This past week it was Pneumonia. Scared me to death. The good news is she’s finally making a strong comeback! After medication was complete, I started her on probiotics, fresh alkaline water, vitamins and daily kale smoothies. Poor thing, she didn’t know which was worse – being sick or enduring my
motherhood induced neurosis treatment plan!
In other news, before the plague hit our home, I actually completed a project! This was a big deal, as I am a total A.D.D. fabric flirt and can never truly commit to one pattern. Not for clients of course, but for my own home. It’s bad. Just look at our storage unit or ask my husband. But I fell in love with this Galbraith & Paul and decided to finally take down the paper shades in our master bath after five years and have Romans made. This is our personal home, not the rental.
I like the way it looks reflected in our vanity mirrors.
After Peter installed our shiny new Romans, I happened to spot our fabric in an old Domino mag. Be still my heart!
Seeing this photo excited me because I had already taken the leftover Roman fabric, made them into width-and-a-half panels, and installed them in our rental home’s family room. Part of being a fabric hoarder means overbuying your yardage by at least six yards.
Up close. The rods, rings and finials are cheapies from Home Depot. They originally came white but I changed them with Bronze spray paint.
ABOUT SUMMER BLOG POSTS….
For the sake of my mental health, I’ve decided to not put so much ridiculous pressure on myself about writing huge, mind-altering posts and just keep my posts simple and sweet. Which is the way this blog started! I think I’ve been procrastinating my posts because I’ve gotten so far behind on updating you on all of our life events and feel like I don’t even know where to start. I’m committed to taking on more of a fun attitude with posting and just enjoying the summer…like my kiddos! Once again, life lesson learned from children : )
