new pics on flic...


we're in the midst of painting here at the homestead so everything is in disarray. four of our rooms are getting fresh coats over the next day or so, thanks to our super-speedy and precise painter friend Caleb. i like seeing the change...i keep walking from room to room and examining the first coats of Italian Straw, Sea Sand, and a soothing ocean blue for the bathroom.

...but it does require taking everything off the walls and finding creative places to stack our possessions, so no time to post much tonight.

as i gave jeremy a second tour of the rooms so he could see Italian Straw by lamplight, he observed that the reason i need this new paint is because we are in a new season of life, and i need to express that creatively. and if i can't express it creatively (in our home, in some way) i get frustrated. he is very insightful.

i also added a few new photos of eli (and his sweet cousin jake) taken on our trip to California in june, as well as some charming little close-ups of eli that our friend dave snapped for us.

...more to come when the painting's done.

(p.s. drinking my very first yoo-hoo, brought home by J. it's not half-bad. he's onto his third...)

Jake is cute, too! It must run in the family.

And, you've been tagged. See my blog for details.

Love what you said about needing to express yourself creatively in the home. I'm about to post on that specifically through reading Captivating. It's so cool you mentioned it, too! It is freeing to have a husband that understands that too :)

Those pictures are great!! I especially love the ones where he eats peas for the first time. We gave Knox peas Tuesday for the first time. :) You've really never had a yoo-hoo?
