leaving town

It's always a crazy rush to get out of town for the weekend. I don't know why, but I still love this crazy city. We are about to descend upon Pennsylvania Avenue in Winston Salem for a weekend that, I'm sure, will be unforgettable. I just love good friends and love them even more when they move away and you begin to really feel the loss of their presence and the depth of your relationship, and then you see them again. Yay! It's like a gorgeous sunny day after a Winter of rain!



I'm so proud of the accomplishments of so many of my Alpha Chi friends from University Of Georiga! One in particular, who was also in the College of Family and Consumer Sciences (side note- a recent client asked me if that was the UGA version of every school's MRS degree?) has a fantastic NYC design firm AND a fantastic Southern accent. Lindsey Harper, I'm so excited for you and am giving you props on my blog for the rest of the month with a picture of your Manhattan bathroom. Love the python table and can't wait to hire you one day.

I'm still trying to figure out what my style is exactly. I had this discussion with someone today who is on the edge of purchasing their first home. She was snapping photos of light fixtures and door knobs and vintage bar stools. It was an especially cute home and then we looked on the kitchen counter and saw that it was featured in a 2004 issue of Country Living. Of course it was.

opening my eyes

A sister church to Atlanta Westside, City Church Eastside hosted a recent weekend "Dignity Conference" in early February. It was an incredible evening of photgraphy from International Justice Mission capturing the stories of women and children set free from sex & human trafficking. An amazing work is being done all over the world by IJM to restore dignity and hope in the lives of the poor and innocent. Secondly, Greg Helvey, debutante filmmaker spoke and showed a short 19 minute documentary  produced to raise awareness over  issues of modern day slavery, specifically in India. The film entitled, "Kavi", has been nominated for an Academy Award and can be viewed here. If purchased, over 30% of the films proceeds will be donated directly to anit-slavery non-profit organizations.
