Back to It

School has begun in our area, so now that the kids will be out of my hair the house I hope to blog and work more. If you follow me on Instagram, you've already seen these photos, but if not, here they are - the obligatory first day shots.
Meg is now in middle school. What the !@#$@$??? I say daily prayers that we make it through unscathed. I say "we" because I believe it may be more trying for me than her - she's always been the resilient one. I try not to weep in front of her as she hates it. 

And Pierce is now in second grade. I can't even talk about it. He wouldn't let me hold his hand as we walked into school. We're entering a new era, and I don't like it. One. Bit. So, two different schools, two different schedules. We're up an hour earlier and she gets home an hour earlier. It will take a while to get this routine down. Wish me luck. 

In other news, if you been missing me on the blog you really should follow me on Instagram. I've finally really gotten the hang of it, and am embarrassed to say I am probably on it too much. But, it's such a fun way to get inspiration and see snippets of what others are doing. Much quicker than a blog post. Once again, I'm not an early adopter of certain technologies/programs/apps but once I do catch on, watch out. Can you say obsessive? In case you missed them, here are some shots I've recently shared . . . 
I scored a pair of these Chiavari brass chairs at an estate sale a few weeks ago. I've been coveting these for years. Not sure if I'll keep both or just one and sell the other. Decisions, decisions. Plus, the seats need to be reupholstered. Of course, these are not the most comfortable chairs but since when does that matter? But, they look so pretty pulled up at a little desk or for extra seating somewhere. Behold . . .
And, my office is finally coming together after the lucite ribbon chandelier was installed (a while back, just now getting around to sharing - oops) and IKEA shelves have been painted and assembled. Now, for the styling. 

 Here's to getting back to "it" . . . whatever "it" may be for you!

i may no longer be on speaking terms with you since i see you have those KILLER chairs. why doesn't that happen to me? AND a white pantone chair? really? not fair. care to share your pantone chair source? I'd really like one at a good price. donna

Two perfect kiddos and all that pretty - what a perfect post!

With our move (more on that in a two weeks), Pea will get to ride a school bus for the first time and she is beyond excited about it.

Yay for the kids being back in school! I have my second starting middle school this year. Last one will be next year. Middle wasn't as bad as high will be, I fear. Your babies are precious. And your scores beyond amazing!

Erin said...

precious adorable kids... misty tears forming at the thought of my own babies leaving the nest :(

your office looks insane and THOSE CHAIRS!!! keep.

Amen to the start of school! My youngest starts high school this year and I'm feeling very sad about it. When do we get to see that office in its entirety? These sneak peaks are torture!

i think i will die inside when fiona doesn't hold my hand anymore. i have heard it's harder for moms with boys.
i try to always remind myself (i have to or i'd go crazy) that growing up is the best part. the best thing for me to do is make their way as safe as possible and teach them right from wrong.
those chairs are ridiculous.

fuck sitting in them. they're art.

I love Chiavari chairs.. they are so petite and pretty yet the brass makes them stand right out!
great find!!!

Linda Adams said...

Hi, I found you when we both voted "dark" over on Blue Hydrangea :) I must say I miss those back-to-school days, backpacks etc (my son's in college!) Here's to new adventures!

Hannah Maple said...

Ahh--both the chairs and the light fixture are to die for!!! Amazing finds, lady!

Excellent read, I just passed this onto a colleague who was doing a little research on that. And he actually bought me lunch because I found it for him smile So let me rephrase that: Thanks for lunch!
