Not What You Are Expecting


I know you are probably waiting for my post on Brave Girl Camp.

Sorry…I haven't even uploaded the photos.  Serious.

You are probably waiting to see a little sneak peek of my new line coming on MONDAY:-)

Sorry…that would require me being ahead of schedule and that doesn't usually happen.

As you can imagine my weekend will be very busy.

I thought I would give you something today though!!!

See how nice I am???!!!!


I have been wanting to show you my FAVORITE new coffee shop in Galena, Illinois.


While we were home visiting my parents Kelly and I spent a few days alone in Galena.


I swear to you we visited this coffee shop four times and they truly thought we were stalkers!


I was asking about the paint color (smoked oyster if you are interested) and pretty much gushing about every little detail the whole time I was in there.


I could live here!!!


So, if you are headed to Galena anytime soon be sure to stop in and support a local coffee shop….and you may just want to stalk them too!!!



Don't forget to come visit the shop on Monday for The French Brocante… purses, camera bag, clutches, art, jewelry, vintage treasures, French linens, Paris flea market finds, clothing……….

    hey cutie pie! I want that to be my living room! Those photographs on the wall look amamzing. what a nice little romantic getaway.
    why does your husband remind me of Marc? oh right, probably cause he’s a totally cute, nice bald (hope he doesn’t get mad at me for that) guy with a great smile.
    you two make a darling couple! Can’t wait to see the new line.
