Welcome to the weekend!  Christian and I will be spending the weekend loading boxes – oh the joys of moving!  It’s hard to believe that this time last year we were loading our moving fan in Mississippi and making the 2.5 day drive out to California.  Here we are one year later doing it again…but at least we’re moving a handful of miles away versus thousands.

I do need to take a break to go to the home store and get a few samples of some paint for our new place.  I have gotten a few suggestions for neutral colors – Benjamin Moore “Mountain Peak White,” “Spring in Aspen” and “Linen White.”  I think I just need to buy some samples so I can see them on the wall first, right?  We are so excited to move into a new place to have more space and lots of windows (that’s when you know you’re getting older, when wood floors and windows excite you so much).  I hope we’ll make lots of memories there and can’t wait to get started!

I also want to take the opportunity to announce the Burt’s Bees giveaway winner – Arena Thompson!!  Arena – please email me at kathleen(at)carriebradshawlied(dot)com.

Thank you so much for all of you who entered and stay tuned for a fabulous giveaway next week!!  Have a beautiful weekend – XO –
