my work: well-nested interior design and decor

I recently had the pleasure of working with an old friend to create the branding, business cards, and blog design for her new interior design and decor venture. Kerry McRorie has just started 'Well-Nested' and she is such a great talent! Her house is gorgeous, and it is easy to see why interior design is such a natural fit for her. 

We worked together to create her logo, using some of her favourite colours - green and taupe. She wanted a look that was sophisticated, but not unapproachable, as she is open to all sorts of jobs and clients. A natural, textural look was also on the list, especially given her company's clever name. It all came together beautifully! A new website is next, and will be coming soon. In the meantime check out her wonderful blog. Best of luck to you Kerry!

my new iPhone screen

Last week I very nearly lost my iPhone. Apparently I dropped it in a parking lot outside a store {I blame my giant belly...couldn't see it in my lap when I got out of the car!}. I didn't realize my phone was missing until I was at my next stop, and went into major panic mode. I called the store I was at previously using a payphone to see if I had left it there and yes, it was there. Oh the relief!! An extremely kind person had found it, and brought it into the store for someone to claim. Thank you, thank you, thank you extremely kind person! 

I really realized that my whole life is on my iPhone - emails, texts, photos, videos, lists. And since there was a photo of my daughter on the lock screen, I also realized that if it ever gets lost again there is no way for anyone to know who I am or how to contact me. So this is my new iPhone lock screen. Fingers crossed I don't lose it again, but just in case another extremely kind person finds it, I'm hoping this little message will help!

here we grow again: 8 months

In the home stretch guys! I have a caesarian booked in 4 weeks. Can't believe this time has come so quickly, and yet on the other hand it does seem to have been a long haul, especially chasing after a toddler. Despite all of the little get-prepared projects I have in my head, I guess I'm ready! Ready to meet this little one, hold her, and discover who she is. I'm very nervous. But very excited.

One more month to go! Here is my belly photo collection so far...
