Big Girl Room

We've been through so many stages: newborn nursery, child's room, pre-teen room, and now we've entered yet another chapter. When the middle daughter began high school this fall, I felt it was time to update her space. Middle daughter and I spent an entire weekend cleaning out closets, bagging up her beloved American Girl doll treasures, and sorting through clothes. It was a daunting task. The result, however, is a fresh, updated space for work and play.

And little sister and best bud are even allowed inside! 

 Middle daughter has a creative, sweet soul.

She has attitude, too!

I love coming up the stairs and catching a glimpse of middle daughter curled up on her bed.
So far so good with the high school thing.
Hard to believe!

Linking up with Savvy Southern Style!

Home Again!

It's always crazy around here, but throw in a week-long trip to Denver for an art school conference, and I am kinda over the top nutty. Denver, however, was an amazing city: mountain views, cool shops, great restaurants and lots and lots of art and culture. Plus, the climate is dry, which means every day is a good hair day.

As nice as it was to dine out, enjoy happy hours, and soak up lots of great art school information and inspiration, I was delighted to be home late last night. I missed my hubby. I missed my girls. I missed my dogs. And I certainly missed my sweet house. I am a homebody through and through.

After lots of catching up with laundry, groceries, and such, the family and I headed to the local nursery for some fall fun. I am too pooped to go into great detail, so I'll let a few pictures say it all. I have missed my blogger buddies, and I hate it when weeks go by and I don't get a chance to say hi. Know that I'm thinking of you, though!

A Facelift!

Somebody's getting a facelift!
Lest you think you'll have to look at me 
post surgery,
with bruises and gauze and such, let me clarify.

DaDaffodil Hill
is getting a new look!

Stay tuned for a new and improved website


a real, live Home Tour page.

I-g-g-y, y'all (I'm so fancy!)

Party Animals

It was a crazy weekend.
Youngest daughter's 13th birthday party was Saturday night. 
20+ girls.
Originally, I said there'd be 13 girls attending the party. 

My day started with an early morning grocery trip.
Then it was home to decorate and organize.

We were blessed with perfect weather. 
Not too hot. 
Not too chilly.
Like I said, perfect!

We kept it simple: hamburgers and hotdogs on the grill, mac and cheese, chips, vegetable platter, 
cake and ice cream.

At thirteen the girls entertained themselves. They sang and danced 
and took A LOT of selfies.

Our local grocery store makes beautiful (and delicious) cakes.

It really was a wonderful evening. 
What I loved most, however, was how this girl right here conducted herself.

She opened her gifts slowly. She was genuinely grateful and gracious.
She made each friend feel special.
She said thank you so many times I lost count.
And she has a great group of friends.

It's hard watching your children grow up. But knowing they are turning into 
really good people makes the process so much easier.

I hope you have a great Monday. I'm going to work so I can get some rest.

Fall on the Outside

It's fall inside.

 But I've put a few fall touches outside, as well.

The weather is supposed to be gorgeous here this weekend.
Good thing because tomorrow night my house will be filled with
THIRTEEN year olds.

Let's hope they can play badminton
and jump on the trampoline
and roast marshmallows

My strawberry cream hydrangeas are blooming again.
And if you can believe it, I only got one pretty blue bloom
on my endless summer hydrangeas this year.

I thought all was lost. 
Guess what. It's now loaded with buds.
Mother Nature is mysterious that way.

I hope your weekend is glorious.
