SEE: My good friend Emily and my mom. :o)
My mom stopped by after she got off work today and brought me these beautiful flowers. I mentioned I wanted some hydrangeas and peonies. She remembered. They were a special surprise. Every time I sit on my porch swing and look at my garden, I will think of her. She is just generous like that. All the time. My mom is my best friend and strongest supporter. Thanks mom.

My good girly friend Emily loaned me these boots. Aren't they f.a.b.u.l.o.u.s? She has all the best shoes, and these don't quite fit her like they used to. I adore them. Don't worry Em, I will take care of them.
Emily had the most fabulous store in all of Wichita. She is taking a break right now, but keep your eye out for her... we will be seeing her, in the form of another business, soon enough. I set the bright pink melamine ware aside for the girlies- perfect color, non-breakable, ideal for the pottery barn kitchen. For one reason or another, I never got back to her store to purchase them. (Or that lovely vintage door knob) She sent them over, in a box. But that wasn't all...
Here is a sneak peek. I have been in love with this beauty since first sight. It is beautiful. You will see more later, once I decorate my whole house around it. :o) Seriously- it is AHmazing.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. A million times over, thank you. Thank you for all that you ladies do. I couldn't get through life without you. You have helped me carry what has been too hard to carry alone. I thank you. Brooklyn and Charlotte thank you. We are forever grateful. 

We love you.

(speaking of my girls...Emily sent over the most awesome playroom addition. I am still working on the playroom, but stay tuned for those pictures which will include my first sewing project in years!)

  1. One of the best parts about closing the store was the ability to be generous with some of the people who have been exceedingly generous to me--with their time, advice, shoulders to cry on, and encouraging words. It means a great deal to me that you've believed in me through this whole process...and whatever comes next. (I'm so excited for both of us!)
