Right Place. Right Time.

After my post on Friday these 2 quotes presented themselves to me.

One, in my RealSimple.com daily thoughts email. The other on the marquee from the lumberyard that I always talk about. I like ‘em so much, I had to share in case you needed to see them too.

Dreaming of Fall…

Category: Uncategorized

Yup…all ready for my favorite season of all: Fall.

The changing leaves, the pumpkin, the yummy cider from Starbucks…can’t wait! I know it will be an even more spectacular and special season this year — being our first here in Tennessee.

Not sure why it’s quite on the mind…I think because I have already seen some trees going yellow and losing leaves…like a little preview of what’s around the corner. :)

Here are some pics from our visit to TN last November when we were checking on the progress on the new house…most of the leaves had already gone brown, but I loved it anyway!

Had a fun little weekend just doing average weekend stuff.

I hate saying I have "lots to do this week" because I feel like I say that all the time.

So instead I’ll just say, looking forward to a great week ahead! :)

The space between here and there.

Because not all days are sunshine and roses.

And I don’t want you to think that my life is picture-perfect (not that you do..but if you had any inclination…it isn’t.) :)

We all have those days, right?

Just feeling out of place…

not sure where I fit in so many areas…

No, I am not depressed. No, I am not sad. No, the world has not ended.

It’s my blog and I can say what I want. :)

Just feeling okay.

Transitioning…

Feeling like I need to take a step back.

Need to hang outside with B with a bottle of wine and watch the trees blow in the wind…

Observe the frogs jump around my yard.

Laugh with friends.

Just enjoy being alive and being happy in the simple things.

Just wanted to get it out there.

No comments necessary. :)

Chicago Photos Part I

Ahhh…Chi-cah-go.  Loved it. Such a neat city. Loved the architecture cruise that went up the river. The best way to see Chicago by far. Though seeing the brownstones from the seat of the train was cool too. :)

Chabooth

The super cute A2Z booth just before the halls opened on the first day. Everybody had compliments for our Restoration Hardware/PB look. It was funny to hear many ladies say, "that’s how I want my scrapbook room to look."

Chaflowers 

The super cute buckets of altered flowers that Heidi made for each line. Here are my Vintage and Art Box bouquets! A few lucky stores will be the recipients of these cute guys!

Table

Heidi, myself and Mandi ready with big smiles to start the first day of the show!

Chavintage

Nothing like seeing it in person to make it all so REAL. Love it! Loved seeing the colors and the patterns in real life…on screen just doesn’t cut it!

Chatn

My LSS girls from Nashville representin’ and checking out the A2Z booth. Stole this from KelliDarrSuperStar’s blog…hope you don’t mind Kelli! :)

Becky

Finally got to meet and chat with my fellow bride-to-be, Becky in real life!

Whew!
I’m back home from Chicago.
Four days is a long trip from home!
I am sooo tired. And exhausted. O-D-’d on scrapbooking this past week. Almost want to lock the door to my scrap room – but not quite. :)
Felt so good to hear feedback on the paper in person.
Met SO many nice people.
Chicago is an AMAZING and beautiful city. Went on a tour of the city today. LOVED it. All ready to go back in an instant. :)

So many more things to say and pictures to be posted…but I’ll leave you with one of my favorite show samples by Sharon Laakkonen using the Art Box line. :  Zany Girls.

So funky and fun and cool.
