Our little owl

Man, these last few weeks have been crazy. I'm sure your past few weeks have been crazy as well--aren't they always?

This blog has been quite lonely and will start to pick up these next few weeks with more fun photo sessions! I thought I would share a little about why this blog has been without posts for a little bit.

We are buying a house! It has been such a quick process and is going to require lost more patience in the weeks to come. We have already made a few trips to TJMaxx, Ross, etc. to look at home decor--that is the whole reason to buy a house, right?! No, but really...it has been so much fun to think about how our first home will look.

Today, we went to TJMaxx and purchased our first piece of home decor(that wasn't from a garage sale). It is a cute little ceramic owl that will probably sit on a night stand in a guest room. It has been the first thing that Travis and I both liked and it matches the to-be colors of the room just perfectly!
We scored an awesome leather bed at a yard sale this past weekend and are planning on painting the room the light blue(at the base of the owl w/ the white dots). It will have brown and light yellow accents. Can you tell I am excited about decorating?
 So, I am off to bed  and tomorrow brings a lot of work--blessed work. I am also hoping tomorrow brings another beautiful day like today. It felt like the first day of Fall--cool temperatures, clear skies,...oh, and boots:)

Stay tuned for lots of photo sessions in the weeks to come!
