Happy Birthday Sweet Juliette

Getting back to nature in the Frances Biedler forest!  

Inside an ancient cypress tree.. too cool !!

Tree Hugger !

Our morning routine consists of the girls getting up on the kitchen counter and using the breakfast nook passthrough as their table.  This tradition came to an end today, as demolition began to open up the kitchen and make room for a new breakfast bar... and mac daddy refrigerator that Kevin so desperately wants.

Love the look

My new office loft

I've moved my Airbnb.com office outside to the art studio.  Its a work in progress, but I know it's going to feel great walking OUT of the house and going to opposed to looking at all the dishes and laundry I have to do.

It's Killer Whale Time

Summer is here... and to celebrate Maisie saying goodbye to second grade we've been having a series of "stay-cations"... checking into a couple of local hotels (complete with pools of course) and pretending we are on vacation.  The girls LOVE hotels, because all the rules of home go out the window !!  Lots of TV, junk food, staying up late and night time swims :)

Last Day of 2nd Grade
And... speaking of swimming... It's Killer Whale time.  Practices are 6 days a week, with meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  I'm officially a swim mom and I LOVE it.  I was on a swim team throughout my childhood.  Such great memories.  I hope Maisie loves the sport as much as I did / do.  She's really coming along and has even won a couple of ribbons so far !!  I am so proud of her.

Springing into Summer

Bike Posse

We have decided that this is going to be the summer of bike riding and swimming.  Our weekends will be spent biking around Charleston and lounging at the pool.  We joined a neighborhood pool so that Maisie could be on the swim team.  She is now an official member of the Northbridge Terrace Killer Whales.  That's right... the Killer Whales.  It is meant to be.  She amazed me at her first practice, swimming like a champ.  This is how I spent my childhood.. and I loved every minute of it.  I am so happy that she has taken to the water and is really into being on a team.  Jules is a bit too young yet, but over spring break, she did learn how to swim under water.  I have two fish in our family and I couldn't be happier!!  Learning to surf is next !!

Love this.. her hands are supposed to be above her head, but she's using the bells as a head rest

Stop the Press

The girls received their fair share of press during Fashion Week.  Making it on the covers of Charleston's City Paper and Fashion Wire Press.  Maisie was even stopped and photographed for her choice of couture during Saturday's bridal show.
