Today is the last day of my, when I wake up tomorrow, I'll be a regular old thirty something.

I am not anxious. I am not traumatized....but I wouldn't say I'm super thrilled about it either. 

I'd be lying if I said I didn't feel any older. This year, I do feel older.

I don't really feel wiser, but I think I feel a little more capable. And proud, I'm proud of myself.    

I've achieved a lot over the past decade and I've also lived a lot too.

I managed to obtain both a bachelor's and masters degree, I've traveled the world and lived in five different cities and visited way too many others to count. I met my husband and fell in love. I've worked for some amazing companies...and then I started my own...and then I helped my husband start his own too. I've grown up to be a kind, thoughtful person who continues to hope and dream bigger every day. I became a mom to two amazing four-legged creatures and perhaps this is the year I become a mother to a human...someone I can spend the rest of my life watching grow up as I grow old : ) 

I'd like to enter my thirties remembering to love, believe, do and mostly live each day. I'd like to feel light, laugh a lot, and smile for myself just as much as I like to smile for others. I'd also like to remember that anything is possible...and with hard work, success may be probable, but if I stay true, happiness is inevitable. And who could ever ask for anything else in life?   

I want to thank you all for reading along for all these years too- you're the coolest. 

Bring it 30. I'm ready.    



The Powder Room Opportunity

I love a good powder room moment, don't you? If there's anywhere in your home to experiment, it's definitely here in my opinion. Paper it in a bold way, mix hardware, choose a trendy mirror or light's all good in the powder bath. Until it's not good anymore...then switch it up again.

I guess I love it so much because powder baths are to your house kind of what your favorite H&M or Zara pieces are to your wardrobe...a low-investment opportunity to try out a trend that may not be in style (or in your home) for long.

They're also a great place to show your guests how cool you go all out!



Milo Three Ways

I've got this little Milo Baughman for Thayer Coggin loveseat for sale @here and I think it's such a versatile piece...The original upholstery is in decent enough shape to enjoy for many years to come, however it's classic lines and designer pedigree make it the perfect candidate for reupholstery one day. Here are some looks I'm digging...along with some other products I've got for sale right now...

Marbled Wallpaper

Loving this look...

I think this paper is especially nice because of its neutral tone. Best part? I found it @here for under $50 a roll!

Subtle variation is good, right? Tell me, where would you use marbled wallpaper in your house?
