 new construction project i'm currently working on at sullivan's island...
gorgeous marsh view from another project i'm helping w/ on sullivan's island
 summer has been a lot of family time, soaking up the sun.....
and last but not least, today is my mom's b'day so we want to send her a shout out....i hope you have a fabulous b'day mom; we love you!!!

for the past week, i have woken up to an addition in my 5 yrs old creeps in around 4:00 AM and then proceeds to want to talk, ask for water, and toss and turn for what seems like hours afterwards.  today, it's taken its toll b/c i cannot seem to wake up.....

very well said Liz :)

i am working on two houses at the beach and both are using super calming color palettes- mostly variations of white.  usually, i'm all about color but right now i am loving this!

my husband comes home today after being in london for a week for work and i couldn't be more of a happy camper!!  being a single parent is hard work people!  i hope y'all have a wonderful weekend!!!

wordless wednesday......ok, maybe not wordless b/c i love that stripe chair and that table instead of an island and those pleated shades as pendants :)
