We got a puppy! Meet Watson!

Almost Back in Action

June 2, 2015 0 Comments

It’s been a rough few months at work, which meant I needed to cut back on my creative time.

MAJOR bummer!

However, just because I cut back, doesn’t mean I’ve stopped!

Oh no…

It just means that I have been spending that time dreaming up and planning.

Places to go, things to do, rooms to paint, projects to finish and start,
as well as all sorts of fun crafts that I am bursting at the seams to begin.

Here’s a brief summary of what’s been keeping me so busy (work excluded)….

One.  A bun in the oven! Not my oven, my dear cousins’, but that is still a lot to celebrate! 


Two.  3 Trips home to NY! = 4,800+ miles of driving! (because we’re crazy like that.)

Three.  A new addition to our family! (Meet Watson. He has big puppy eyes and he barks.)

Four.  We took another vacation. (Can there ever be enough?)


Five.  A lot of lawn work, puppy proofing, and project planning

Six.  I was gifted a vintage sewing machine.  Do I love it? YES! 
(pictures coming soon).

Seven.  I got a Mac. Which means, I get to begin processing all our 
trip photos that I haven’t had time for!  
I’ll be updating my photos section with more than just 
unprocessed test images soon, and this makes me very happy!  🙂 

I’ll be back soon.


I'm Rose. Nice to meet you! :) I'm a Southern transplant from the Northeast. I have two fur baby pups, Pippa and Watson, and the best partner a girl could ever ask for, Paul. I'm a believer of making the most of every moment. As much as I might try to slow down, busy seems to me my word. I'm a busy person, with a busy mind, and a ever growing list of things to do, places to go, books to read, recipes to make, and things to learn! I started this blog in the winter of 2013 as a way to allow family and friends {800+ miles away} to be a part of our lives. It's also served as a creative outlet for me to share projects, photos, travel, passions, thoughts, and a couple recipes. Being a first time home owner, we've been on a quest to transform our cookie cutter house into a home. ❤ I hope you enjoy this creative space.
