With only a few weeks left of school free summer, I’ve been thinking about how I want to spend these last glorious no-lunch packing, no homework monitoring, no school sports/activities shuttling days. As much as the kids and I have been spending a lot of time together and occasionally grating on each other’s last nerve — more specifically, they’re grating on mine! — I am going to miss this low-key time together. I think about how many more summers I’ll have left before my 8 yo little guy doesn’t want to hold my hand anymore, or if I’m under-appreciating those small moments when my daughter finally declares domination over the playground monkey bars. To be honest, all of this sappy stuff might be the result of monthly hormones. Just in case it’s not, the next 2 1/2 weeks I’ve decided to attack our summer fun bucket list with a vengeance. Which means I actually need to create one… So moms, local NE Ohio/Cleveland residents and all-around creative people — please help a sista’ out!
What’s on YOUR summer bucket list?

Every few months there is a shift in my brain’s functioning and my preferences and attentions turn away from personal fashion and lean more toward interior design and decor. It’s like clockwork! Well, the brain waves have shifted and all I can think about lately is finishing up some of the rooms that need a little attention and love. It’s time.
Having cathedral double-height ceilings is a blessing and a curse. The light is extraordinary, decorating the vast bare walls is not. I’ve been thinking about a gallery wall. This artwork would be total perfection.
A bench at the foot of our bed has been on my “to-do” for a little while. This one is the ideal combination of rustic and industrial. You know how I feel about that style! In case you don’t, you can read all about it HERE.
