lately...

i apparently am unable to blog in real time.
if you follow me on instagram i apologize as
you either have seen some of these
or you might see some again!
so here's a little menagerie of life lately.

~ all in one purse. true story.
lip gloss hoarders unite.
(burts bees, victoria secret, revlon, cheapy, chanel, mac, cheapy)


~ emi & dan on the last of the Braves game gifts.

( bought tickets for dan. 5 games. 2 tickets for each.
then he took one of us to one of the 5 games.
best gift ever)

~along with lipgloss 
i do appreciate a great mascara.
i have high hopes for this one.
i'll keep you posted.

~we move her in to her sorority house. tomorrow.
sigh.

~ fresh peaches from south georgia.
always reminds me of my grandparents.
~stalling before bedtime.
the perfect time for a snuggle though.

~ packaging for my photo session discs.

~ my most worn color this summer.
cocktail bling from essie.

~dan cleaned my hairbrush drawer.
without prompting. made my day!
mason pearson brush was a luxurious gift from a dear friend.
makes me feel like a glamorous movie star.
life changer for your hair. seriously.
~ a few weeks ago , one of my friends had tickets for norah jones.
they couldn't attend. we scored!
took the blue eyes out for mexican first, then dan & i went to 
cafe intermezzo for incredible desserts.





~ she was playing at the historic fabulous Fox Theater

~ when the concert was over, we walked on to Peachtree Street
to find two wedding parties with the bride and groom making their exit.
sparklers and all, two different venues,
one in a horse & buggy
one in an old rolls royce.
so fun.
the lady in front of me turned around while i was taking the above shot & the one below
& was all "why does everyone have their phones out? what's there to take pictures of?"
sad life she surely lives.right?
i wanted to say. geez lady. don't you instagram? tweet? or facebook?
this is a rockin cool city. capture it baby!
but i exercised restraint.


~ i could eat fresh summer tomatoes
off the vine every day.


~blue eyes heading out to meet two of their favorite teachers 
from elementary school
who took them to see Brave


~trevor's sister had a baby.
her name is elyse & she is scrumptious!


~brinkley. always up for a playdate.

~ madi & i visit my favorite little coffee shop,
dancing goats,
after a photo session.
mini cinnamon sugar doughnuts & a decaf nonfat frozen latte :)

~ beth moore taught at passion city church a few weeks ago.
love listening to that woman.


~ so she says "lets make a funky rocker face mom"

~ madi takes brinkley for his debut ride in her convertible.
they went to the icecream place
where he recieved a complimentary doggy sundae.
he still loves me more madi. good try though ;)


~my extraordinary assistant on shoots.
i usually say something like, "hey, walk over there & let me check out lighting"
before my client arrives. such a good girl.

the end.

I've been reading your blog for a while now, and i don't think I've ever commented. I feel like now is a good time to tell you how obsessed I am! You do such a great job of documenting the life of your adorable family! Thanks for being such a great inspiration!

I, too, want to know where to find the sideways cross bracelet :) You've mentioned an online shop here before but they never had inventory when I would look. Great photos of your many big and little blessings!

Farmgirl Paints said...

Those are great Paige. Love following you on IG...so simple and easy. The one that caught my attn ...was your man cleaning out your brush drawer. Say what? He is a keeper. Sounds a lot like my honey! What would we do without them?!

Lyssa at Living Simple in the South said...

Love everything.

Through your pics I see a change in Savannah and I think that it so amazing and encouraging.

Pictures of her before were just like any other college kid or woman in our society, posing with their friends or fun new things, but now they are all of her real and raw and loving on people. It kind of makes me want to cry a bit because it tugs at my heart so she has left the nest and done the exact opposite of what most do and that is so my hope for our little Ally (10 months) I am glad that you share her in all her glory.
