The One With the Instagram Summer Adventures Recap

Yeah... forget the weekend recap. Here are all the Instagrams from my mom's wedding... a long, long time ago. And the adventures before and after. We've been pretty on the go this summer. And we've still got a lot of adventures before this year is over. It's fun. And a little exhausting. I'm enjoying the small breather we're getting at the moment.
But anyway...
The flowers at my mom's wedding were really beautiful. I'll post a few pictures of the bouquets soon, but I'm trying to remember all the names of the flowers. It's fun having a mom for a florist because I get to know a lot more about flowers beyond your typical ones like roses and daisies and such.

The missing friend at Crater and Diamond Lakes is Kaycie. We visited her in Louisiana this past spring and she just moved to Illinois, so she was unable to make it to this reunion. Hopefully we'll be seeing her soon.

Speechless Sunday

I just found this wonderful print by one of my favorite artists, Kit Chase, and I knew I had to have it for the girls' new room. I haven't done anything to their room in this current house because we're renting and it just seemed so temporary and they're not really in there much anyway because we spend all our time downstairs. 
Well that's all about to change with our new house. The inspection is on Tuesday, and if everything goes well we're hoping we'll be moving in around the middle of October. I can't freaking wait. I'm so excited for us to finally have a place all our own. It's been too long in coming.
And I'm excited to decorate for real. And actually hang up pictures because they'll be there for long enough to make the hole in the wall worth it. 
But mostly I'm excited to have a house our kids will grow up in... at least for a while. They can remember it as their childhood home. And that will be a good thing. I keep reminding myself of that as the part of me that is a vagabond starts to get a little freaked out about putting down roots.

P.S. You've seen art by her before, which is why this will go perfectly in their new room. Olivia's little gallery wall in her nursery was made up mostly of prints from Trafalgar's Square, also by Kit Chase.
