1 Year of Blogging!


Today is our Blog Birthday!  We have been blogging for exactly a year and it has been such a great experience for us!  Melissa put the blog together for my Mother's Day present last year.  We were just so amazed at her talent and how she worked so hard on the header and our pictures. I will never forget sitting in the living room of Darien thinking this is so exciting. Working with the girls on a design blog. Having them all interested in design, how could I be so lucky?  When we started, we were wondering how the whole thing worked. We had some really fun blogs we followed and were starting to comment on...Pink Wallpaper, Elements of Style, Cote De Texas, Grant Gibson and Habitually Chic but it was The Skirted Roundtable that had some wonderful lectures on blogging and getting started. Wow were they helpful.  They said to just comment and keep commenting.  We have found and admired many blogs over the course of a year and are so excited to be finding new blogs to follow. This blog introduced us to The Lisa Porter Collection, Laura Holland at Hickory chair that took us to High Point in the fall were we meet the most amazing interiors legends such as Mariette Himes Gomez. We were able to post on the amazingly talented Elise Allen with her new launch of beautiful paintings. This blog has helped us forge ahead with our own online store as well which has been so exciting and a dream come true. In a nut shell this has just been so much fun and has brought us all together as a family working day in day out on style and design as one team.
