CHARLIE LOVES THE BEACH

The Beach was the absolute BEST SPRING BREAK the Doctor or anyone for that matter could have ordered…everything was perfect…the BEAUTIFUL sunny beach days…and even the rainy cold days were perfect…because we were together and  away from our crazy life. Charlie of course joined us and got stronger everyday.

…..then we explored possible background colors with the BENJAMIN MOORE COLOR colors that might look nice behind the shelf…WE stayed with BLUES …continuing the BEACH HOUSE vibe….

  1. I like the after much better! You made me laugh when you said you restyled the bookshelf. Too funny but I know I do the same thing in my head…how would I make this space better? what color should it be? etc.

    So glad Charlie is doing better – love the picture of him enjoying the sunshine!

  2. After!! You did a great job and I love the Calypso blue background! You crack me up rearranging the vacation house- I do the same thing when we travel 🙂

    Glad Charlie is healing and you too!
