summer lovin'

Too much time has passed since my last entry, I'm not sure where to start. We have moved, we are adjusted to the neighborhood, we are enjoying summer. the highlight for me has been a visit from my mom. It had been a whole year(way way way to long) and we had all been missing her. The boys were excited to have her here. Holden even suggested she move in. We boogied all over Des Moines. We hit all of our favorite places and even found some new ones. She helped me start decorating my living room. I had ordered a love seat and she helped me form a vision for the room. We were crazed maniacs at the Brass Armadillo(my new favorite antique mall) We seriously went there three times, walked probably 5 miles searching and researching for items. I walked away with a great red chest for my entry, a white bench for my kitchen table, and some original barn art that is darling. Then she started dragging things out of my basement and garage. Mom really should have been an interior decorator. I guess she is in a way -she's mine! Love you mom-thanks for all help xoxoox

I am so jealous, I wish my mom liked to go to the Brass Armadillo (we had one here until recently, it has relocated with a new name, I LOVE it there!). I am so glad your mom could help you and you are so lucky to share that bond and time together. I hope you show some pictures of new things/projects!
