A Blast From the Past.....I've come a knockin'

...Well how is that for a disappearing act? I cannot believe I have been MIA for a year! I don't even know where to start. Do I even admit I almost forgot how to upload a new post? YIKES! I want to grab a cup of coffee. Sit down with you all and catch up on life. What has been going on? What sneaky sneak is creepin' out of some neighbors back door? I want to know the gossip...ALL of the juicy sweet details of the blogging world.
 In the spirit of a virtual gab session I must say that my life has changed a lot. I still call California home but that is about all that is the same. Blogging & decorating seem to take a backseat these days, but my little Oliver keeps me busy now that he is in big boy school and I have a full time job. The divorce has been quite an experience. It has taken a toll but taught me so much about myself and what I can truly handle when push comes to shove. All of these things continue to take my life in new directions and I am embracing the entire journey. EWWWWW gross. I just used the word journey. Don't worry, I rolled my eyes at myself so you don't have to. ...Let's see what else is new. I am currently smitten with winter photography on Pinterest. I am over the phrase "It is what it is", I am about to celebrate the big 33 next week, and I don't really give a darn about the color of Starbucks cups this season (I'd cuss here but don't forget I'm Southern). Most days end in exhaustion, the house in not quite as clean, but I am loving every minute of it. My goal is to come back to this ole' friend, find my blog voice again and help Stella get her groove back.
With that said, I couldn't wait to share my latest project with all of you! Oliver's room got a little Christmas make over. I stayed up into the wee hours of the morning getting it ready for a surprise reveal when he came home from his Dad's house. For a five year old he delivered quite a satisfying reaction. He now has named his room the North Pole. Makes this mama's heart happy. Little does he know he will be getting a new bed for Christmas and this will be the last few weeks with this yellow gem. So here is the holiday eye candy. Don't be scurrrrrred to let this rusty gal know if I've still got it or not.













...Now that I uploaded enough pictures to make up for the last year I need some Southern Comfort egg Nog....I guess some things never change. See you soon! Happy Holidays!

Missing you guys

I have missed you guys so much! Busy doesn't even begin to explain the past few months I've had. Our fall has been filled with pumpkins, birthday parties, and cooler temps. A picture recap is all I feel like I can post these days. But starting after Thanksgiving I am planning on posting Christmas projects. It's about darn time I get back to you guys. I just have to say that a divorce, a full time job, photography on the side, and a four year old is all this tired mama can manage these days. You can understand, right?! FILL me in on what I have missed. You guys are the best!

Kicking it Back to School Style

My boy is about to be four in October. For some of you who have been following me for a while now, know this seems impossible. Over the holiday weekend I decided to shoot some photos of him and man I feel like he looks 18 years old. Here is a little update on my little Oliver Tate. These pictures soon to make their way to the Gap 'back to school campaign' in hopes of him being discovered, getting rich and taking care of his mama. A gal can dream HA!










This little boy....I have no words
