Blush

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket
Today we're getting back into our routine yet again. We spent a wonderful week with my mom and step-dad - who did our laundry, weeded our garden, loved the babies, and brought us out for dessert pretty much every night. Now that all the excitement has died down, I'm putting away all the laundry my mom folded, eating healthy food, riding my bike again, and finally getting around to potting the succulents my mom and I bought. It was fun mixing and matching all the plants at Lowe's with my mom, trying to find the perfect marriage of color and symmetry. I really love the blushing set we came home with.

What does your monday look like?

  12. Love them, girl! I always linger in the succulents, but reluctantly never buy any. Perhaps I could sneak some into my new office at work. Oh! Note to self! :) Thanks for your inspiration, darlin'.

    1. Do it, Meghann! In my limited experience, they're the least-regretable plants just because they're so easy!

  13. The succulents look so much nicer in the white pots. Super lovely!

  20. Hello! I just found your blog through a friends and am loving your beautiful photography and words. Your little girl is such a sweet angel. Newborn babies are so precious :)

    Btw, I was thrilled when I read on your profile that you used to live in central MD. That is where I was born and have lived my whole life. In Frederick, to be exact. I have only ever met one other blogger from MD so that was just way too exciting :P

    Anyway, delightful blog...can't wait to read more!

  22. I love having plants around me but I don't have any right now. I'm always worried that I'll forget to water them and then they'll die so succulents and cacti are perfect for me. You chose beautiful plants to surround yourself with.

  23. Why haven't I been to your blog in awhile! Seriously, always stunning with your family and photos. I've been so disconnected with blog-land. I need to get back.
