Nesting Urges

Personal

I don’t know what has gotten into me lately but I have this inexplicable lust for more space, a new bed, big windows, fresh flowers in every room, white washed kitchens, wood furniture with chipped paint, gauzy curtains, and lots of sunshine. My trip to Ikea yesterday probably didn’t help matters. And I love Pottery Barn but I really wish they wouldn’t cram so much stuff into their pictures.

I’ll order all of the following, please:

My kitchens (that’s right, I’ll have several)

Bedrooms
(Note the canopy bed. I saw this pic in the book The Comforts of Home by Atlanta Bartlett and I’ve been obsessed with this bedroom ever since! The bed, white washed floors, big mirror casually resting on the floor, old lockers, bench, sunlight… drool. )

That’s not too much to ask, right? So what do you think of my crib?

When I’m not scouring every single wedding blog out there, here are some of my absolute favorite home/interior design blogs:
My Sweet Savannah (where I found the great majority of the images above)
Small Place Style
La Maison Sur La Colline
Bueller Designs
Housemartin
Desire to Inspire
Absolutely Beautiful Things

There is a magic in that little world, home; it is a mystic circle that surrounds comforts and virtues never known beyond its hallowed limits.

How is it October already?! I can’t believe how quickly the year has flown by. This month is officially the busiest month I’ve ever had. There are so many incredible weddings that you’ll see splashed across the blog soon. And if you know someone getting married in 2012, tell them to get going because I’m already halfway to my wedding limit for next year. Crazy, right?!In honor of this fabulous month devoted to baseball, fall colors, and All Hallows’ Eve, I’m giving you some digital candy (if you come by my place I’m happy to give you real candy too, but I’ll expect a trick). Candy corn gets a bad rap. Granted, it tastes just like a bun ...

I’d say my date went well
Sadly, we did not get the same table that we had last year for our anniversary dinner last night.Fortunately, the food and conversation were just as good.

Ahhhh!"Will you marry me?"~ Andy
