Around the house

I just realized I never shared the "after" pics from our landscaping project. It was completed a few months ago, and believe me, every time I walk outside I am so thankful to finally see grass and plants and trees! Charles Royal with Royal Landscaping helped us and did a fantastic job. Give him a call if you ever need anything landscaping related. 251.767.8725

Bruner built this window box a few Sunday's ago.  I'm amazed that something so small (and cheap!), can make such a huge difference.

I forgot to take an "after" shot of the entire house. Maybe I'll remember to take one eventually...when the weeds have grown back and the grass is brown again:)

Photo shoot #2 - Devin Ford Photography

Devin Ford Photography recently shot these photos of me and my family for my new website (coming August). Didn't she do an amazing job?? See photos from our 1st photo shoot here. I couldn't be more pleased with how these turned out. I swear she made us look 10x better than we actually do!


You should definitely hire Devin Ford Photography for your upcoming photo shoots. Devin worked as a photographer in Hollywood for 10+ years (photographing the stars) before she recently moved back home to Mobile. Check out her website for more info or follow her facebook page. I seriously can't give her a higher recommendation!

New Branding: Friends of the Delta

I just finished the branding design for "Friends of the Delta," which is a group of folks who work together to promote a new National Park in the Mobile-Tensaw Delta. See the website here. A new website is currently in the works! It was such a fun project to be a part of, and I can't wait to see what the "Friends of the Delta" do to help promote and restore our beautiful Mobile Delta.

I'm obsessed with these new photos on my fridge. We were at our neighbors house recently, and I spotted these tiles/photo magnets on her fridge. My neighbor, Leslie, is SO creative —separate post about her house coming soon! She's an art teacher and full of amazing ideas. Well, after 4+ days straight of rain on July 4th weekend, we started to get crafty. I completely copied her and got a bit carried away...

These are all of the ones I had left over, but I will find a home for them soon...

Here's how easy it was...
1. 4"x4" white tiles (I bought mine at Lowes but I'm sure you can buy these anywhere. They were only $0.16/each)
2. Take your camera to Walgreens. They print directly from your instagram photos.
3. Mod-podge the photos onto the tile
4. Use thick double-sided tape and put wherever your little heart desires.

I'm telling you I got a little carried away, but I love standing in the kitchen and showing calder all of her aunts and cousins and friends. That never gets old. We love looking at these fun memories and snapshots of good times we've had. Well you should definitely try this. You'll might love it so much you almost fill your entire room with these tiles! I almost did I swear.

our trip to maine

I have lots of catching up to do. Calder and I went to Maine a few weeks ago for my cousin's wedding. It was a quick trip, only 3 nights, but what a wonderful time we had! It was Calder's first plane trip too, and it was full of surprises to say the least. BUT, I did have a blast with my girl and she was such a little trooper. I love spending quality time with her like that, even if it's on a broken plane in the runway for a few hours or delayed flights at the airport. 

I promised my mom (and my Aunt Bev) that I'd blog about our weekend trip to Maine, so this post is for you!

The first morning we were there it was cold (especially compared to Mobile heat that is) and very foggy, so we sported our colorful PJ's on the beach for an early morning walk with grandaddy. That little walk cracks me up! And her "bam-bam" hairdo is a result of a fit she pitched when I tried to put it up...so that was the best we could do!

How sweet is this photo? Those two, I swear, have the sweetest little relationship.

And then it magically cleared up, despite all bad weather forecasts, a blue sky appeared. Don't you just love when that happens?

We stayed at this adorable bed & breakfast (see below) right on the beach. I just LOVE Kennebunkport. See this post about our recent trip to Kennebunkport for my other cousins wedding, Ben. Aunt Bev has 3 boys and their wedding's have been back to back years, so we've been spoiled with several fun trips to Maine. On a side note: My aunt Beverly owns the most amazing shop, Antiques on Nine. See this post for details. If you haven't been — you must visit this adorable town some time!

The rehearsal dinner was truly magical. It was at Bev and Jon's house—and was such a perfect celebration of Will and April. The lobster rolls were out of this world, and every detail was so creative and thoughtful — just like the groom and his bride. I wish I took more pics, but I was busy chasing this little girl around in her lobster dress!

Dad was our babysitter for the weekend and he left early with Calder so she could go night-night, and the girls stayed up and drank wine and talked!

I just love my cousin Katherine. We had a great time catching up and I just wish Mobile and Nashville were closer together!

Having fun with the groom, Will

all dressed up for my first wedding...

...with my lobster shoes on of course (a gift from aunt bev at my baby shower that has been put to much use!)
 watching the waves

such a sweet memory
here we are at the reception. every single was perfect! again, wish i took more pics!

 the beautiful bride and groom!

And here we are on our way back home. Such a short trip but worth every minute it took to get there...and then some! Calder had the biggest crush on this precious boy at the airport. Thank you for entertaining her for so long!

And thanks for all of the memories, Main! Until next time...
