Cottage in the woods...

Welcome to my little cottage in the woods.

Enjoyable spring evenings in Arkansas.

Wine in a mug.

Good conversation.

And a comfy squirrel chair.
Having a "Picker" for a Father you tend to find random treasures everywhere.
Yes, these chairs are for real.

Lucky me, this weekend is the Dogwood Festival in Siloam... Perhaps I'll share the weekend festivities with you through some photos :)

Made it safe!!!

I had my last final Thursday morning and jumped in the car and made my way down to Arkansas. Its only a 6 hour trip so it's not bad and I listened to The Secret Life of Bees the whole way down. Since I'll be traveling a lot this summer I went to the Urbandale library last week and picked up a number of books on CD :)

It was a perfect day in Arkansas. 70 Degrees and I arrived home to be greeted by my puppy Olive, my parents, their dog Lily and my Aunt and Uncle who live in Moorhead Minnesota. We enjoyed a lovely evening outside. Visited on the front porch, followed by dinner on the porch, then we moved over to a bon fire in the yard. Oh Arkansas.... I have missed you :)

I'll be glad to get settled in the next few days. So far, so good.

MimiBird on the move!

Hey friends!

Mimi Bird and myself are making our way down to Arkansas today... Moving there for the summer! Since Mimi Bird now has three owners my parents and myself, I've decided to take my time off of school to spend with them to build the business.
I'm very excited for all the cool things we'll do this summer; sales trips, tearing down barns, creating a number of things including the products you have seen, awesome new products, refurbishing furniture, making books and MORE. I am back once again after another long break to keep you up to date on the journey of this upcoming summer!

Magnolia Grace

A little update on my recent life: As you know I went to Birmingham for my Spring Break to visit my niece, Magnolia, who is the cutest thing ever. A few days after I got home my roommate and best friend went into labor and we welcomed Emma Lynn into this world! She is soooo sweet and also the cutest thing ever. (Yes, there are two winners for the cutest babies in the world award. M&M!) I've been enjoying my time getting to know her, helping her mommy out, seeing lots of family and friends who have been visiting her ~ oh and also finishing up another semester at school.

Emma Lynn

Cheers to the end of a semester and to the beginning of summer! Hope you enjoy it!
