normal days...

I read this quote on one of my favorite blogs, A Cup of Jo: 5 beautiful motherhood tips, and got teary and thankful and sad—all at the same time. Of course I had to quickly redesign it and print it out, to tape on our fridge as a constant reminder. We all must enjoy every moment, because before we know it, it will be gone.

So, here's to our "normal" days...

happy friday, y'all

I went on a boat ride this morning through the Mobile Delta with a new client—brainstorming ideas for an upcoming branding project. We explored the delta for 3 hours; Bill Finch (the Mobile Botanical Gardens executive director and the Press-Register’s garden writer) was our amazing guide. I learned so much about this incredible treasure we have right here in Mobile Bay. Did you know we're getting a National Park in 2016? Pretty amazing to be a part of this project—and it's these times I'm reminded how much I love my job.

We're taking another boat ride tomorrow on our new boat. It's an 7 ft '87 Negus, so not NEW, but new to us! Bare bones—no bells and whistles—which is just what we wanted. SO excited! It'll be our first family boat ride so say a prayer it goes smoothly (or as smoothly as possible with a toddler!)

Happy Friday, y'all. Hope your weekend is wonderful!

Caroline Ceramics - Sneak Peek

I just finished Caroline Ceramics new site and all designs have been sent to my programmers. This was a true labor of love. I am so in awe of her work — gosh, what a fun site to design. We'll let you know when it's live!

So much going on around here!

Here's sneak peek of my desktop and camera roll from the past couple days. I'm working on some exciting projects, including my own re-branding and website. More details coming soon. As always, thanks for visiting!

the beach + white space


What a wonderful weekend away with my two loves. This was our first actual "family" vacation— just us three. I think the images speak for themselves but we had a wonderful time. It was my-kind-of perfect: laid-back, sans makeup, sunshine, lazy beach days, catching up on sleep, building sandcastles, lots of snuggle time, poolside reading, yummy seafood and just good, quality time together.

I recently read something that has stuck with me:  
"Life is all about the white space."

If you're like me, you make very little time for white space. My day is packed full of to-do lists, phone calls, errands and appointments. I always feel like there are never enough hours in the day to finish it all, and then 4pm rolls around and I don't know where the day went. 

So...I'm trying to make more time for the "white space" in my say "no" to a design project when my plate is too full, to stop trying to be everything to everyone and everywhere at once...because that white space is so critical to balance and joy. That white space is where the things that matter happen and where our relationships grow.

Well, our little 4-day getaway was definitely full of white space! It was a relaxing, quiet, non-event-filled, long weekend—which was just what we needed. How nice to slow down for a little while and let time stand still.
