I don’t even know what to say about this week except for whew…..it was so crazy….especially Tuesday when I had to go home in the middle of the day and change my shirt.

Yup….my deodorant  failed.  It was crazy hot outside but also I was at a curtain install where the rods did not arrive….the texts were coming in rapid fire about sconce height….need kitchen hardware….backsplash decisions.  I almost had a melt down but I gassed up and just plowed through all the chaos.

But let’s back up.  On Saturday Rose and I took a much needed day off and just scooted around Atlanta going to some of our favorite places.  I made one purchase at the consignment store “Swoox” and it actually got me motivated to play around with my bookshelves.

Lord it has been a minute since I have done anything to my house besides buying a new hot water heater….not really blog worthy:)

What is funny is that y’all probably won’t really notice much difference…..haha.  I decided to lighten them up….which is something you usually do in the spring.  Hmmmm…..what’s up with me:)

Here is a before…not sure which before though….but hey….nothing is static around here.

OK…..here is the after before I made a little change.  After posting a picture I realized that I needed to switch out the bowl with the white vase.  Why you ask?  because the bowl is the same color as the wooden bowl…..
So I fixed it:)

I also needed to replace the black and white art so I got out my paints and whipped up something.  I’m so impatient:)

Now for the other side…..before

OK….ready for the after?

Had to make one change after photographing…..too much black on the bottom shelf!

Ahhhhh…..much better!

The basket that started it all!

I will darken them up in the spring:)

So it was this day a year ago that I came home to discover that my husband had moved out.  Hard to believe…..

What a year it has been.  Of course I have been working a-lot.  Partly to stay busy but also to make money to pay the bills…..so much more responsibility when you have to do it all alone. 

I’m not going to lie….there have been some dark times…..when I just didn’t think I could get it together another day.  And I am sure it would help if I could actually get a finalized agreement.  But hey as they say one minute, one hour, one day at a time.

Trying times in the world for everyone not just me.  

And I have Cami who relies on me every day:)

I hope you guys have a wonderful holiday weekend!  I appreciate every one of you.  This blog means so much to me…..It’s amazing that I have been telling stories about my life for 11 years.

THAT is a long time….and I appreciate how supportive you have all been.
