lately {in phone pics}

Sunday, February 3, 2013

hi there friends!  i didn't mean to disappear.  we are here. we are just fine. we are very busy. it's always like that this time of year.  above are a few snapshots of life over the last few weeks.  i've clearly gotten a bit of a jump start on valenetine's day.  what can i say, my cutesy tendencies and pink loving ways become far more acceptable under the guise of valentines when you live in a house full of boys! we played outside when the weather permitted and drank copious amounts of hot chocolate indoors when it didn't.  andrew and charlie were busy with activities and i enjoyed seeing them try and experience new things like playing instruments and movie making.  i plan to write a proper post this week.  thank you for faithfully checking in, even when my writing is sporadic.  happy february!!  xo

  3. This is why I love Instagram so much! It's much easier than blogging. I always have intentions to blog, but here lately by the time I'm able to sit down, upload pics, and actually write something, I just want to go to bed. I wish I could be consistent like all these bloggers that post every day. Have a great Valentine's Day, Tessa!

  11. Love your blog! Your kitchen shades are wonderful! How did you get a hold of the Lisa Fine textiles? I've been coveting one of her patterns for my bedroom shams!

    1. thank you, hannah! i ordered directly from hollywood home. they are in beverly hills and really fabulous to work with, be prepared to be sitting down when you read the price per yard. buuuuuut i justify it b/c i'm not really a jewelry or designer jeans sort of gal, my vice is fabric, so it is worth it to me, but sit down nonetheless. haha! :)
