before even more time passes, i wanted to share an adorable post we shot in early March. look at my nails! don’t they look fantastic?! oh, for the good old days that were literally only weeks ago. but i digress. many of you know that my oldest son alex and his wife kelly, relocated to Athens last summer. how lucky am i to have my kiddos live in the same city? their new home is situated a mere ten minutes from my house on a quaint cul-de-sac, so it’s an easy drive to bop over for dinner and vice versa. but before their move-in date came to fruition, an entire house renovation began right before Thanksgiving that finished on-time but maybe not quite on budget. there are always blips and bumps along the way because one never knows what they’ll find once the studs are exposed.
but when it was time to unveil the finished house and unpack the boxes that sat in storage for months i was on hand ready to welcome the couple to their new (old) home. is there anything more satisfying than moving into a house that you helped design? in the next few months, we’ll share more before and after photos of the renovation room-by-room. but today, or should i say early March, it was time to welcome the happy couple to their new home.
gift baskets are an easy gift to give as you can tailor the basket to the occasion. and what’s better than a bottle of wine, cheese, crackers, and chocolates when the fridge hasn’t been stocked? or even if it has, there’s always room in the kitchen for a few more treats. this basket is from 1-800-Flowers. it’s the perfect online choice, especially these days with shopping expeditions curtailed. there are so many wonderful gift baskets to choose from as well as flowers or plants.
one of my favorite design elements of alex and kelly’s new home is the front door. its massive but oh so welcoming.
the happy new home owner.
a gift basket is such an easy way to remember someone special or celebrate a special event.
let’s wish alex and kelly many years of happiness in their new home!
