The Past Few Weeks...

I just thought I would do somewhat of a photo-dump on here of some highlights from the past few weeks.
We had a very intimate Thanksgiving this year. We weren't quite ready to travel with the smidgen, so a few of my family members traveled from Dallas to be with us. Not everyone could make it, so our usual 25 member dinner turned out to be just 5. Only my mom and 2 of my 4 sisters could make it for the actual dinner but another sister made her way down the next day. It was very sweet, easy and relaxing!
My momma, sister Carla, sister Angela, the hubs Frank and see that little pink in the bottom left corner...that was Alice's seat :-)naps
The smidgen and me.
My little sister Angela and Miss Alice
Another sister, Tina, her boyfriend Chris and my girl.
Sometimes only Daddy can make it better.
We did some Christmas tree shopping.
What?... What do you wear when you shop for a Christmas tree? ;-P
Every year I stand in front of the tree for at least 15 minutes debating colored lights vs white lights. This year I did both.
We are so looking forward to our first Christmas as a little family. Eventhough she doesn't know what is going on yet, a certain magic has returned and I am very excited for her :-)
After the 1st of the year I will be heading back into projects after a very comfy maternity leave. I have loved my uninterrupted time with the smidgen, she is just beyond precious!!!
Thank you to all who read this little ol' blog and leave me such sweet, encouraging comments and emails! It makes writing on here so much more fun!
I hope you've had a great week. It's the weekend, yay! :-)

Visual Comfort & Co. Feature

Visual Comfort & Co. is one of my absolute favorite lighting sources and I am so flattered that they have featured one of my projects on their blog today.
Take a peek back to when I featured this project on Live Beautifully if you would like to read more.

In this project, I used two of the gorgeous Double Twist 5 Light chandeliers in hand rubbed antique brass by Eric Cohler for Visual Comfort & Co. Aren't they stunning?!
Thanks for the feature Visual Comfort :-)
