what's going on

Oh, where do I begin? 

I'll start with my favorite. I attended an auction at Redux over the weekend with Becca and Kristin and bought my first piece by Lulie Wallace. It was my first time at an art auction, and I really loved it. I seriously can't wait to do it again. Lulie even took me to her studio, where I got to see and hear about some exciting new things in the works. 

If you know Lulie's work, then you know that she usually paints bouquets of flowers (not individual stems.) This piece was unique because she only painted 2 like it, and they were specifically painted to help design her website.. or so her husband told me. I am crazy about it. My piece is not the norm, making it rare and all the more special to me.

If you follow my instagrams, none of this is new to you, but I thought I'd share a few snapshots of my life's happenings as of late.

I love this time of year and am enjoying our cozy morning fires.

I've been on a cooking kick... homemade tomato basil soup just happened.

Avery's room is coming along slowly but surely, and it all started with those navy walls. LOVE.

My sister and I had brunch at Halls Chophouse, where I tried my first Bloody Mary... ever.  It was good, but I wouldn't crave one. I'll take a Mimosa next time. 

I sat and watched a sunrise and a sunset over the weekend (both a beautiful sight from my Mom and Dad's house.)

After a little practice, the 4-strand braid quickly became my favorite "go to." Have you tried it? 

And how could I forget about these sweet little faces that I get to spend every day with?! Their new favorite thing is to make a beard like daddy while in the bathtub. Love those boys!

That's all I've got for y'all. Hope you had an equally fun weekend!
