A LITTLE LIFE LATELY {Married + Living Together}

Squad Home.jpeg

Oh why; hello there! How wonderful it is to see your beautiful faces!  You didn't really think I had forgotten about you, did you? I thought tonight was a good night to have a late night post - and share a little of life lately. I took some time off, no wait - I took ALOT of time off. There has been so many changes in my life - good changes - soul searching and so many things that I want to share with you all. It has been a crazy time away from blogging and social media. Crazy busy, crazy love-filled, crazy, crazy, crazy. Instead of sharing every moment, I chose to focus on what was right in front of me and truly enjoy the moment and be present with my wonderful clients, our new home and my handsome husband who I absolutely adore. We've moved, brought in all our new appliances and some new electronic gadgets as well as a new straight from the showroom floor-vehicle. (I'll introduce our lovely addition to the family: Hemi: a 2014 Dodge Durango - who has been assigned to haul buckets of blooms to and from up-coming events-over on Instagram tomorrow, follow along here) Lots and lots of changes have been happening. Almost overwhelming - but very very much needed. All your emails, texts, calls, tags, kissey faces and comments with your love, encouragement and support over all these changes has overwhelmed this big Greek heart of mine. I just want to hug each and every one of you. For being happy for me, and us, for being supportive, and for understanding that social media is not my first priority. 

 What's on the other side? Is that picture above – of that sexy squad car sitting in our driveway. If anything were to sum up these last weeks away from the computer: it is just that. My popo is home for good. It's been a long time since we've lived together-try 2.5 years- and I really thought it would be tough getting into the swing of things; but it's like we just picked it right back up. Kind of like a bicycle right? I say love is worth it a lot. It has become my mantra, my motto and truly been my motivation for a while. If you are struggling with something, let me tell you; it is worth is. Looking back, I see it very clearly; all the struggles; the heartache; the tears; the missed birthdays and holidays; it was all worth it - love is worth it. 

I have some really great content planned for the end of April and things are really going to get exciting soon - but for now - I bid you farewell - because this Greek has an addiction to her bathtub; and it's singing my name. Oh wait - thats just the popo in the other room; "hey, it's almost bedtime" How annoying, yet loving & satisfying- that he is here and able to know when I've been in the studio too long - oh friends! My popo is home!! 



Happy Friday all you sweets !!


A little corner of my desk from yesterday. I've been sending lots of Cassandra love to lots of fabulous vendors that I've met recently around my little area. I'm so excited about working with these talented folks. I'm working on my brand lots more this weekend while JD is home. We are hoping to get everything packed that we are not immediately using and with weather permitting organize and de clutter our mess of a garage. In other news - guess what! On visiting Chateau Dattoli yesterday I snapped lots of photos and to give you sweets a little peek into it's beauty.

Hello there Mr. Fireplace!! That chandelier, hangs beautifully in our foyer as you walk in through our front door. Gah! JD and I are exactly 3 weeks away from moving into our new home! We are literally so excited and just chomping at the bit to move. All cabinets have been delivered and are nearly all the way installed. The cabinet for the master bath came and was all busted up, so a new one has been ordered and is being rushed here. But the flooring is all in, minus the carpet. We are beyond thrilled with how it all is coming together. My design on this house is exactly how I thought it would be so far. I love every single square inch of our new abode. But my office .. I am just about to explode with joy and excitement over my very own studio and design space. I just can't wait to show you this amazing space I have designed.

With that, I will leave you; because frankly it's sunny and 50 degrees here in the Land of Lincoln and that foxy lil pom is begging for a walk in the sunshine and I just can't say no to that face. : )

xoxo, Cas
