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!
