The Project of the Summer- Lake House

I have only done a few projects this summer which has been wonderful because honestly I have never felt more in touch with my kids, husband and household. If something was to get done, it was on "summer time"...... similar to, island time.  But there is one project that I have really been looking forward to since the summer began.......
Project Lake House

Me and the kids are packed up and heading north to Tennessee, to spend some time with my niece, sisters and mother at this beautiful house. While I am here, in between lake time and celebrating the twins birthday, I will be revisiting a few rooms that need some decor updates. 
This house is so special to me (and no, I do not own it but get to stay when I want...family perks) because I was there at the beginning of the building process, when it all started and looked like this.





That's me...notebook in one hand, phone in the other overseeing the stair installation. The owners live in another state so having somebody relatively close was ideal during the construction stage.... which was very slow. Island time, except in the mountains. Where the closest Walmart and Piggly Wiggly are one hour away.
And here I am below, 8 months pregnant with the twins .... house almost finished.  


7 years later, it's time to update and enhance a few of the rooms including this bedroom


and an outdoor living space


But don't worry, I will share an entire house tour with the updates when I get back....if I come back (kidding) although it's really hard to leave serenity and tranquility.
What are you up to this week?

Talk to you next week.



Grateful
for this chance to get away with the kids....even though 
we will miss dad
