oh buoy!

I have been helping one of my very best friends with her new home. She has two children, a boy and a girl, who are in need of new, beautiful bedrooms! Her daughter really got spoiled, with custom bedding and window treatments. Lucky gal! Her son, who's turning 5, is just as deserving of a fabulous room but we made it a little more budget friendly and picked things that were also more readily available. We started with an upholstered headboard and then found bedding to use as a jumping off point. The room has taken a bit of a nautical turn. Here's our inspiration board...

random thoughts

For the life of me, I can't get back into the groove of blogging. To be honest, I feel like I fell off the blogging wheel a year or so ago and I am a newbie all over, racking my brain for content and crossing my fingers for comments. It's my fault, I know. I took a good thing, cast it aside, and am expecting to pick up where I left off. And that's not happening. I have to earn my followers back, coming up with creative, new content and spreading the comment love as well. (Side note...I read so many of your blogs and then don't comment. Sorry! I know better!) So, bear with me while I attempt to get my groove back!

 Another topic that is always on my mind is career vs. kids/family. Can you really have it all? Erin Gates from Elements of Style wrote a fantastic blog post last week about life in your thirties. It a must read...check it out here.  It talks about the struggle she is having with wanting children but wanting her career as well. She is on the fast track and has a career that I am incredibly envious of. It's a good read and gets me thinking a lot. It also talks about all the changes in your thirties and how friends all end up in different places in their lives. Never really thought about all of that until I read the post. So, it's a must read for all you ladies!
