When You Know, You Know

Everyone said, ‘don’t worry, you’ll know when it’s time.’ They were right. I kept thinking….well, I don’t know, so does that mean it’s not time?  Or do I just not want to know??  Until one day (last Wednesday)…I just knew. Marley’s decline has been a long, slow one.  Her biggest issue has been her hip mobility.  We went from walking miles, to blocks, to one block, to the end of the street and back, and most recently, just to the driveway and back if we’re lucky.  She has been falling more and more and walking slower and slower.  She can’t get up or down the stairs.  Most times she can’t stand up on her own. The big turning point for […]

House Pinning

Image via Amber Interiors.  All other images via Pinterest. I had a former employee (a college student) back in town for a few weeks and she wanted hours at Boem, so I said, ‘you know what?  You can have all mine’ LOL.  So I took some personal time this week and it has been GRAND.  I had a friend in town, so we lunched and shopped (and dinnered and drank).  I met another friend for coffee.  I got a massage, I went to the dentist, and I did a ton of furniture shopping.  I also met with my builder for 2 hours to start hashing out house details.  Because guess what??  OUR HOUSE STARTED THIS WEEK.  Praise be.  The timing […]

Misa Milaya Dress + Life Lately

Happy 4th of July!  I’m up early getting some work done before we head up to Lake Norman for the day.  With as hot as it’s been, I’m looking forward to a day soaking in the water! Y’all.  My life has been crazy lately.  I am one of those people that is pretty much happy all the time and stuff doesn’t really get to me.  But lately….I just can’t.  I don’t know if it’s the snowball effect of so many things happening at once or if really it all boils down to the situation with Marley making it tough to handle anything else (you can read about that HERE), but either way, I have been STRUGGLING.  I don’t want to […]

Marley

Happy Monday! Sorry for the lack of posts.  I was on vacation in Hawaii, and I had one blog post planned for while I was there (my favs from Boem, you can see HERE).  I planned to be back to regularly scheduled programming last week, but if you follow me on Instagram I’m sure you saw that we had a scare with my dog of 15 years, Marley.  I ended up flying home early from Hawaii and cancelling a work trip to Atlanta because of it, so mentally I was just not in a place to be creative or even think about the blog.  I barely had the energy for work at the store.  I was horribly jet lagged when […]
