what’s going on …

I’m still stuck at the house (pneumonia, day 12) so there hasn’t been much to post.  (I still need to get to the Charleston photos, but that’s another story.)  But that doesn’t mean nothing is going on here.   Some phone shots to recap what’s new.

The hubs bought me flowers.

IMG_0939 I took a photo I had from the beach last summer, and had it blown up to 20 x 30.  I need to have it matted and framed.  I can’t wait to see it done.  


A tree ate my house.  (See last post) And then a bulldozer took it away. 


Some goodies arrived via   Cute matches and pens in turquoise and periwinkle.   IMG_0952

The sprinklers made pretty rainbows.


The storms we’ve been having made for some spooky skies.  IMG_0960

I used the downtime to finish and order my photo book for last year.  I love the way it came out.  More on photo books soon.  IMG_0963IMG_0975

I ordered from our local CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) group this week for the first time.  Love my goodies.  IMG_0968IMG_0971

I cleaned out my desk, even though it didn’t need it.   (I love this desk.  It’s the Porter’s Collectors desk from Pottery Barn.)

IMG_0970 And my husband bought me a feel better present – something I’ve been wanting.  Now we just need some sun and the doctor’s clearance to get me out of the house. 

IMG_0985Hope everything is good by you.  Tell me – what have you been up to?




  1. You are so talented. I love your photography way above the average.

  2. Hi Stephanie!

    I'm so sorry you've been sick! It sounds like you're on the tail end, so you can get back outside. But, mighty impressed with how you've used your "inside" time!! My desk could use some straightening!!!

    It's just been a busy summer, running my boys to their camps and keeping an eye on them and their friends when they're here. I'm kind of looking forward to August b/c things will slow down. I need some "sit at the beach with a book" time!!

    Feel better!
    xoxo Elizabeth

  4. Hi Stephanie. I LOVE the sunglasses. What brand are they?
    I always enjoy your posts. :)

    1. Thank you! The sunglasses are from Tiffany. They are the aviators from the lock collection. You can find them on line.

  5. Looks like you've been very productive for being sick and house bound. I can't wait to get another glimpse of your beach photo!

  6. you poor thing. i can't believe it's sticking around this long. love those sunglasses. you will rock in those when you can get back outside. xo!

  7. So sorry to hear that you're still under the weather... But it looks like you're getting the royal treatment! At least you've been very productive and love the images from your photo book. Hope you're out rocking your new shades soon!
