This will probably be another long post. But you know what? I'm going to stop warning y'all of that. I like to talk and I like to write. There are plenty of wonderful blogs out there with short and sweet posts, filled with tons of eye candy, like Little Blue Deer & Delight by Design. I'm not one of those. Okay, moving on.
Back to Brad.
how funny is this? He covered his red shirt so it wouldn't reflect the red in the shot.
While shooting, he asked, "Do you like seeing pictures of your house? You can see what is wrong and how this or that is out of place." You know, I thought about it, but said, "No. I don't mind. This is as good as it is gonna get."
I switched around our "daybed' room...as promised (returning the stools, though. Chris wants something more durable. Definitely understandable!)
I have learned this about me...and about life. I think if you wait until a relationship is perfect before getting married....you'll never get married. And if you wait until you have just enough money saved to have kids....many of us would never procreate. And for me, if I waited until our home was perfect to take pictures. Well, you get the drift by now. There would be no pictures and no blog.
I followed Brad around, cleaning & snapping shots
But no one's home is ever perfect. Am I wrong? Is yours perfect? I just moved the piles from room to room. Whatever room Brad was in for the moment was clean....when he moved, so did the junk.
I can't wait until we see his pictures....and I will share them with you when I do!
more of my pictures of the redo:
I found this mirrored desk for $100 (not quite as great as a lucite, but tons cheaper!) Down the road, I would love to pair this with one of my dream chairs, the Verner Panton:
so far I'm digging the new setup
And speaking of pictures, I have none of the outing with Eddie and Jaithan. That is because I didn't make it. My little one was under the weather. I really can't leave them when they feel bad. I remember how much I needed my mama. I'll have to learn to just post things after they happen. I have to remember that with kids, plans are more of a maybe than a definite!
But here are some pics from our outing to see She & Him. Here is the W Hotel Midtown Atlanta:
I just think it will be so dated in about three years. Just my opinion...too hip for me! :)
the great view!

the storm looming overhead
We stayed in the Botanical Gardens' library while we waited out the thunderstorm. Good place for conversation.
No pics of the show--not allowed. Zooey & the band were wonderful!
So back to the question at hand: Are you more of a take-it-as-it-is kinda person...or an admitted perfectionist?

I definitely am the former...for good or worse.
Here's the transformation again:
just a cuter before...
more during...a blank canvas!
more to come this week!
