It’s almost here! My favorite day of the year is just a few sleeps away. As most of my readers know, we’re hosting the big event this year. First on my list of Christmas prep to-do’s was getting the table set and ready to go. We still need to pop in the leaf and set up a few seats at the bar, but other than that we’re pretty much ready to go. I did a little trial run with the place settings yesterday, these photos are the result of that. I’ve also left all glassware off the table because we’ll be setting up a couple drink stations for easy access throughout the day. Let the festivities begin!
One of the hardest decisions in terms of decor for the new house has hands down been selecting light fixtures. Because we have an open floorplan it sometimes feels like selecting furniture and decor is a giant puzzle. You don’t want anything to be too matchy-matchy but you also have to consider how everything will look together considering the dining room, entryway, living room, and kitchen are all within the same visual field.
Y’all. The thought of dangling from a helicopter absolutely terrifies me. Anyone else?! That’s one of the reasons I admire photographer, Chloe Masco so darn much. This gal doesn’t just hang from planes, but she creates gorgeous art while doing so. Talk about a conversation piece. Chloe travels the world hunting for the perfect shot to add to her collection.

We’ve officially been homeowners for a month! Somedays it feels like we’ve lived here forever, now that we’ve settled into our new routine. Other days, it feels like we’re still in the “moving in” phase. Everyone keeps asking how it’s going and I have a standard response, “for some wild reason I thought we’d move in and everything would magically fall into place, we’d unpack all the boxes on day one, have furniture picked out for every room, and have every last detail in place within a few weeks.” Obviously I was
a bit very naive about how much work this was going to be. While it is starting to feel like our home, we’ve still got a ton of work to do. Folks keep telling us it’s going to be a work in progress forever. I get that. Cheers to progress not perfection!
A few shots of said progress….
