I am sitting here, it is Monday morning, but I am not yelling at the kids to hurry up, or throwing together lunches, or trying to remember what it was I was supposed to do today…no, instead, I am drinking my coffee, by the pool, listening to the ocean and the birds are chirping, Charley is laying in a spot of sun, chewing a bone a listening to the birds. Did I mention I am in heaven.
The day before we left, I was a wild Mom-Bomb banshee cleaning-packing-throwing away person. Tearing abound the house, and after 2 months of sick kids camped out in the living room, I kicked everyone out and cleaned both rooms, and took some photos.
as an aside…With my interior decorating and interestingly also with my paintings, I have found that one of the best ways to see how things are coming along and to spot mistakes, or rather, areas for improvement, is to photograph them. I see SO MUCH more in the photos than I do in real life. It makes sense. When you view the room as a whole, your eye can’t always focus on one area, but rather sees the entire space. Anyway, I will talk about this more later, because I have more to say, but for now, I am just going to show you my photos and then go down to the beach.
This is a lot of photos…I know…but did I mention..I cleaned!!!!!

Lesli, your home is lovely! And you have an incredible style and artistic nature in decorating! Love the “wild mom banshee cleaning thing” as I can relate to that also. Praying for the rest of your spring break – for more rest/relaxation, wonderful new memories, recharging! Love, Susie
LOOKS fab! I love the sheep painting in the fireplace 🙂
