Happy Weekend, Friends.






Any fun plans?

I'm about to head outside and get started in the garden. It's time to break in my new gardening boots (my old polka dotted ones made it 5 years) and feel some sunshine on my shoulders.
If you'd like some tips on getting your gardens started this year, you can visit a few posts I did last season on Backyard Farming.

I absolutely love these pictures. Beautiful. You should make it poster size.

As for gardening... I'm thinking of beautifying my porch as well as making a vegetable garden. There are a few cute kits in etsy. Do you have an etsy store by any chance?

My sister is coming to town to visit. I can't wait! It's always so nice to spend time with family.

Hope you are enjoying your time off. :)

Melissa said...

I've already had the best weekend ever - my best friend had her second beautiful home birth this morning and I got to be there. I actually thought of you, believe it or not. Of all my pregnant friends, I guess you'll be the next! Have a wonderful weekend.

Sini said...

You lucky girl, getting your hands in the soil and start the new garden! We are looking for a house with garden to rent, finally :)

You are a gorgeous Mama and I can't wait to see that beautiful baby. :) Enjoy all the early moments of tiny baby, they go so fast.
Question....what do you use in your hair?!! Would love to know because it looks amazing always!

Monique said...

Love these photos. The two photos make a nice bold statement. I noticed the green boots and was wondering where the polka dots went. You've gotten some great wear out of them. Happy Weekend and good luck with this new phase of your life. Your freedom.

BEAUTIFUL!

I found your blog about 5 months ago when I was searching for wainscotting pics for our new babys room. I think it was your sister inlaws baby room that came up,anyway I have been reading it ever since. I just love it! We have alot of the same interests. I also do interior design, so I love seeing your beautiful pictures.

Can't wait for the next post... Nichol

I love the colours you've captured in the sky. I hope you had a lovely gardening weekend.

Laura said...

I love the new look of the blog! And the categories. You have been so busy these past 9 months - can't believe Little Miss S is due to make her arrival ANY DAY now. Please call me if you need ANYTHING. Jackson and I would love to come see you both. :)

Anonymous said...

Hi! I'm a total fan of your blog, obviously, and this is my first comment and I have a silly question-- HOW do you get the frame around your pictures? The little html border surrounding?

Can't wait to see your beautiful little bird, much love and blessings!

Gaby said...

These photos are wonderful! And I adore your new banner, did you do it yourself? xx

Sini said...

I hope your weekend was great! I love the new outfit of the blog :)

cora said...

Gorgeous photos! Love the silhouettes! Your photos always give off so much serenity and love!
You've been sooo busy. Love the header.
I did a beach clean this weekend - caught a tan though some horrible tan line which I plan on getting rid of if the weather remains as is :)

Aura! Any sign of your little bird? Three more days and she might make it to April, after all! I hope you're feeling alright. :-)

Julie said...

Your site looks amazing, Aura. Reminds me of a bloom...a new cycle. xo

Ana - Better in Sepia said...

Hi Aura,

After your reminder I went back and looked through all your gardening posts because I am going to be planting my first veggie garden (first garden ever of any type, actually). I was wondering about the weed barrier you guys installed when you first dug up the "new" garden. Did it work? Would you recommend it? I don't plan on doing an elevated bed, so I'm wondering how deep I will need to go to install one.

Thank you for all your awesome posts.

- Ana

Kelly @ Dare to be Domestic said...

Jessie Lathroum said...

Beautiful pictures Aura! I am 32 weeks preg with my little boy and I find lots of inspiration in your posts! I am also thinking about driving all the way from Dallas to OK so you can cut/style my hair, yours always looks awesome! Good luck with your delivery!
