Here’s hoping you survived (and enjoyed!) the first day of back to school. In my part of the world, the kids went back yesterday after a very full summer. There were lots of smiles, great vibes, and my favorite – a mom carrying a huge tumbler of what I thought was coffee until she raised it towards me with a wink. I think she’s got this all figured out… With the start of school came the inevitable scramble of paperwork, immunizations, supply runs, and last minute panic – of course, now that school is in session, we are in for more of the same. I run two weekly to-do lists; one for personal/family stuff, and the other for my business. Between preparing for the return to school and starting construction on a new home, it feels as though I’m adding to the list more often than crossing items off as completed – not the best feeling. In the spirit of celebrating those completed items, here’s a round up of this week’s successes:
The Harper has been listed for sale! Please click here to view the listing: www.har.com
The HOA sent notice of conditional approval for the construction plans, including the exterior color selection, St. Bart’s by Sherwin-Williams.
The Cottage Wall is coming along and features the smoothest wall in our house. I’m definitely enjoying the look of it as it reminds me of home. It also reminds me of the incredible mess and long time frame to have gotten to this point, so I may be willing to take back some of the mean things I’ve said regarding textured sheetrock.
In terms of your home’s to-do list which may or may not have been replaced by a Pinterest board, here are two lovely refresh projects that could easily be completed in a small room such as a powder room or child’s bedroom fairly quickly and affordably. My second grader is begging for the wall treatment below (not sure if it’s paint or wallpaper) – I’m glad she hasn’t figured out how to add to my to-do list!

Here’s to crossing items off our to-do lists while remembering to enjoy the space in between.
