Hello! I hope your 2016 is off to a wonderful start. I've been nesting, reflecting regrouping, and realigning. Which I tend to do very slowly. So excuse the dust on the blog. I feel pretty strongly that until inspiration kicks in I just don't want to ramble on about nothing. It must feel authentic and organic and inspired.
What is authentic is the construction zone that is our home right now. If you follow me on Instagram you have seen the mess that was our backyard. I can happily report that we spent a lively NYE in our new 'shed' with dear friends. We dusted off the paver dust and sawdust just in time to celebrate (the carpenter was still working the morning of new years eve).
We had a houseful of friends for days during which time we made lots of wishes and pancakes. As it should be.

Here are a few snaps of the backyard craziness start to finish. Moldy bricks (we do love Chicago brick, just not for a pool deck) and cracked concrete out. New creamy pavers in. And a pavilion, pergola, cabana thing. All of those words sound funny to me so we call it 'the shed'.
