November Photos

Sooo many photos from this month! I had to do lots of editing down, if you want to see more be sure to check out my shutterfly!

We got to spend a lot of time outside this month with hiking trips, an anniversary trip to the mountains, and a Thanksgiving trip to the beach!

We had a great time visiting the spot where we got engaged at Vogel State Park and staying in the above cabin.

We also did some hiking at Kennesaw Mountain. The girls are really loving going on some short hikes lately! I definitely hope to continue to do more trails in the area in the new year.

We spent Thanksgiving at Fort Morgan in Alabama (near Gulf Shores) with Eric's family and we got an awesome beach house!

Echo enjoyed getting to play with some kids close to her age at Thanksgiving dinner.

 Then it was back to Georgia to visit with my family and celebrate Logan's Birthday. It was great to see him spending quality time with my girls :-)

We finished the weekend by visiting a great local brewery called Orpheus. It's the perfect brewery for those of you that have kids because it's right on piedmont park! It's also dog friendly and the beer is great!

We have lots of holiday fun coming up this month so not sure how much I'll be posting but hopefully I'll have some fun pictures afterward anyway :-)

Anniversary Gift

For my anniversary gift this year Eric decided to help do something about the monster "to read" pile on my nightstand. He installed some floating shelves for me, something I have wanted for ages, and it not only gave me a place for all my books but also really inspired me to clear the rest of the clutter on my nightstand.

 I love a man that can build me bookshelves, happy anniversary honey :-)

Print Exchange

This fall I took part in a print exchange put on by the Sketchbook Project and I recently received my prints from the exchange in the mail! I was wanting to challenge myself with something creative and this was a great exercise to wake up my artistic side. The sketchbook organizes some really interesting art projects so if you've never heard of them check them out. For this particular project I had to produce an edition of 11 prints with the theme "greetings from a distant land. I then sent the prints in to the nice folks at the sketchbook project and about a month later I received 10 prints from different artists all over the world! The sketchbook project kept one of my prints for their collection and sent the rest out to other artists. It was so exciting to get a collection of art in the mail, you can see the print I made at the top of this post and the prints I received are bellow.

Doing this project around Echo prompted her to do an art exchange with other kids around the country which was also really cool to see. I love the prints I received and I want to look in to getting them framed and hung somewhere in the house. What a cool way to score some original artwork!
