Last night we shared cocktails and asked our mom a million questions about our childhood. It was fun to hear our family memories from her perspective. Every story reminded us of another story we wanted to hear. It was one of the best days I've had in a long time. I'm so glad we took this trip together.
We stole our mom away for a long weekend together in New York. We're not doing too much besides eating, shopping and exploring the city together. We're snapping lots of photos and having lots of laughs. I can't believe this is kinda our first girls' weekend ever... new tradition?
ps. Thank you for all the kind words about this blog (via twitter + comments over at ABM) It means a lot to me and I really mean that. :) For those of you who were asking, you can follow each feed separately. Here's the Bloglovin' link to Everyday Elsie + Everyday Emma.
It's finally time to say hello! I've been writing on this blog for a couple months now (with 0 readers, not even my mom) just to get into the swing of things. I haven't kept a purely personal blog in many years so it was good for me to have some time to figure out what kind of stuff I want to share. Good news... I'm loving this space! I feel like I have a new hobby (I LOVE hobbies). Welcome.
When I first started I wrote a bit about why I started Eveyday Elsie and also why I chose to close comments. I look forward to keeping this blog, but it will never replace A Beautiful Mess. It probably won't even be similar because I don't plan to teach anything on this blog. This will just be a place to share photos of real life and jot down memories. It's simple + relaxed and just what I need. I hope you enjoy following along...♥
Update time! We're still on the hunt for a home. This home was pretty amazing. The perfect little Mad Men house with tons of wood paneling and floral wallpaper. The kitchen was totally original too... it was amazing. We decided to pass on this one because there really wasn't enough natural light in most of the rooms. We're finding that with a lot of Mid-Century homes in Missouri, unfortunately. Windows are a priority, ya know?
We're having fun. It feels like we're always talking about houses these days. I'm getting excited to choose one and start planning renovations. Cross your fingers for us...
