A Break

{I adore this little nook and that fabric}

{This looks like the back of my house, kind of, sort of}

{umm this looks like a slice of heaven…we should all have one of these}

I am a huge procrastinator and a half finisher of everything, at least during this season of life. Truthfully, I suppose I’ve always been a procrastinator (started with homework, you too?) but I did always manage to get things done and do a pretty good job. And that is were I’m laking these days. I’m not getting things done. And there are a few things I’d like to get done. Do you want to know what?
#1 on the list pick out pictures & FINISH (as in completely) my gallery wall.
#2 paint my living room
#3 hang new mirror and light in my guest bathroom
Oh, there are a bazillion other things but this is a start. I feel like if I can FINISH a few things than I might, just might, get the hang of it, again.
And then, I’m headed on a little trip for a week or so to visit my husbands family in Atlanta (anywhere I must go?). They haven’t met the Brave yet (except for the grandparents).
So let’s meet back sometime a bit after the 4th of July. I hope I have some completed things to show you and some stories to share (I am known as 4th of July Trina, if that should tell you anything)!

    I get it. I just sent out March pics of my kids because it took me that long to go through all my pictures. As for bigger projects I took our shutters down over a month ago b/c I thought we were going to paint the house — we are, but it's one of those things in limbo.

    that bottom photo is BEGGING me to crawl in for a much needed mid-day nap. I'll be back at about 2'ish to close my eyes for just a few. Silk eye mask in hand! ;)

    Hi, I just joined your blog and I must say, I love these pics. I have a similar window in my mud room and have been meaning to do the same. Not to mention the fab pic of the backyard, which reminds me of what my backyard is suppose to look like by now. Still laying down the stones . . . oh well. Enjoy your trip :-)
