So we're working on it. Trying to get this three bedroom ranch house into a cozy home, but we are still a ways off. I thought I'd share a few photos with you, proof that I actually have a house :)
And meet our new (old) girl Bandi. Dustin's mother recently moved into a condo and wasn't able to take her 15-year-old border collie with her, so we brought this girl into our house. She's been an outside dog her whole life but has had no problem being spoiled with indoor heat and a cozy bed.
I couldn't be happier with the kind words I've received in response to my bridal collection. It's been a bit of whirlwind, but I'm so glad to have everything out there and now I'm already knee deep into the next collection due out early spring. You may have noticed one minor bit on my new website -- that I'm based out of North Carolina. That's because the hub and I have sort of, kind of, decided to move back more permanently to the land of the pines. Spending the summer in the farmhouse kind of sealed the deal for us. Amazing what a little peace and quiet can do for you.

So yeah, we're transitioning back to a tiny town in western NC for now with thoughts of moving somewhere a little more metro within the state when the time is right. The hub and I plan to continue working up and down the east coast just like before, no changes there. We're looking forward to expanding the states we shoot in, so all east coasters, we're looking at you.

We've been in the little farmhouse for the whole summer and we just recently furnished it, so I can't wait to share photos once things get into place. It's cute, it's simple, and it's perfect, for now :)

We hosted a dinner party for my mom's birthday in August...it was a perfect summer evening. The hub made a selection of homemade pizza and we finished the evening with homemade peach ice cream.
