I know I don't blog a lot. You know what it is? I think I'm torn. I tend to be an open-book find of a person. I definitely have a tendency to live out-loud and not hold anything back. But that's not always the best thing for me. I've been burned before. And that was not a good experience, so I have to tone it way, way down. That said, I think I can temper what I write with interesting things to share, I just tend to downgrade what I have to say sometimes as not all that interesting. I have a lot of "I wish I coulds" or "wish I had time to's". But the truth of the matter is that it's not so much that I don't have the time for them. I am just a mondo-procrastinator. This aspect about myself frustrates the hell out of me. Why do I continue to do this? Sigh.

Anyway, there's been a ton going on in my life. A TON. I was on an emotional roller coaster for the past couple of weeks. But now the light is shining brightly at the other end of the tunnel and it looks looks like it's all going to be okay. And so I'm sighing a huge breath of relief.

That said! Here's something I found on Stylehive. I am dreaming of beautifying my surroundings. We have a pretty small house, and little living space for six souls to dwell in (nevermind hardly any storage space). Our vrbo on our property takes up a whole life of its own...I can't wait until those spaces get integrated into our daily living...ah, some day... But until then I just have to help my husband see the need for re-thinking our surroundings so that they're flexible, functional, and totally integrated into our lives. Which brings me to the cool couch below. I love this! Although white would never suffice with the three mutts we have crawling all over our furniture. But the shape is divine, and I'd love someday to have it or something like it in our studio.

Meet the new love of my life!

Welcome all to this world Jackson Thomas Elliott, my nephew, born at 8:15pm on January 27th, 2009. Mama and baby are at home doing well. She's recovering from her C-section and learning to breastfeed. Apparently it's more of a challenge than one would think. But having my baby sister go through all of this before me is a blessing cuz I'm taking lots of notes! Thank goodness for technology and digital photos and Facebook, etc., because it means I actually DO get to see my little baby boy grow up daily, even though he's in Houston and I'm in Austin.

Now the only thing to do is make sure he doesn't turn into an Aggie like his dad!
