Didn’t Lily’s weekend in the city sound fabulous? I could go for a good dose of girlfriends and shopping right about now. Sigh. We had a wonderful weekend too and I’m still cleaning up the evidence of sand. Our trip to the beach was a rerun of our last trip but much more enjoyable this time without the blowing sand. Our house inspection turned up a handful of issues that can be easily taken care of and we even met the current owners. We were filled in on some of the neighborhood gossip, plant care and pointed to the best pizzeria in town for dinner. Who knew Floridians were so friendly? They’ve even offered to meet with us again to go over the maintenance of the house once it’s official and it looks like we’re moving in that direction. Yeah! The girls are excited and so are we. There will be plenty of painting to do and I’ll be relying on my Pinterest boards for inspiration but it’s safe to say that I’m still leaning towards the brighter side of things. I came across Vanessa Bruno‘s Parisian apartment and I immediately loved the white walls and time worn beams, of course but the soft pastels drew me in as well. So very feminine and not at all fussy. Zou bisou bisou…
