Well, I haven't updated the blog in a little while - because I was moving, again. What, you're surprised? What, in the past two years I've lived in Athens, Atlanta, Savannah, Atlanta again, and now somewhere new? Yes, that's right! Being married to a baseball player takes us somewhere new all time, and this time it's Port Saint Lucie, Florida.
Do I enjoy moving? No, who likes moving!? Am I a little bit addicted to it? Definitely. Let's just say I'm gonna be in trouble when it's time to buy a house - Collin and I have commitment anxiety with six month leases, haha.
Anyway, since I have been all over the place with moving, working on Spring weddings, getting ready for a summer full of awesome projects/collaborations and adjusting to having roommates again (I live with my husband and three other ball players!), I haven't quite had time to unpack the camera and get good shots of my life and work. However - I do have a few photos I've taken on my iPhone (and glitzed up with Instagram) along the way...
My last project in Atlanta was the crib bedding for my cousin (in-law?) Catherine and her new babygirl Joie... and a few special little things made from some family-saved fabrics. I showed you the Alexander Henry fabric I bought her in NYC at Purl Soho in an earlier post:
Well, all I have is a funky phone photo, but I sewed the fabric into some simple crib bumpers piped in jute cording and a couple of throw pillows!
And I turned one of Cat's mothers old sundresses into two little dresses for Joie and her new cousin, Gracie. I used the Itty Bitty Baby Dress pattern from the blog Made By Rae and they turned out great! Very baby Anthro if you ask me...
After that, it was time to hit the road. Let's talk about the Florida Turnpike and how it cost me $8.00 to go from Orlando to Ft. Pierce!?
Our new apartment is a hundred times better than our old apartment in Savannah. The back porch opens up to a pond with a fountain, so that helps. We live in the PGA Golf Village in St. Lucie West - basically you only live here if you love golf, the Mets or both.
Of course, I've been to my fair share of baseball games at Digital Domain Park already. The team this year is really good, a 17-2 record right now, so the games are pretty fun!
And what's Florida without some time by the water?
It's been a good first two weeks in our new home. It's always hard to transfer the business out of Atlanta since most of my clients and suppliers are there. I'm still working out the kinks of long-distance, but I've done it before and I'll do it again!
For anyone who's interested, I'm coming back to Atlanta on May 17th-26th for The Not Wedding vendor rehearsal and the ICE Wedding Day Hooray! I can't wait!
