That one time I went to Bali

Art, Casa del Pullman, Projects, Travel

SO. I am holding myself accountable for last weeks goals. I didn’t get my front door done last week… I did buy the paint, so that is a step in the right direction.  This week we are going to Mickey’s Halloween Party on Tuesday, and then I have a school thing in Seattle.  Which means nothing is getting done on the house.  That’s okay.  That’s life.  I will get to it.

On to the real post.

I love photography.  I tried calling myself a professional for a few years, but when you get right down to it, I was mediocre at best.  I grateful for the skills that I learned from other photographers and you tube because it helps me take some pretty good photos for my home when I travel, which I LOVE to do.

In April, I went to Bali with my mother on a yoga retreat and it was amazing.  It is another world, and if you ever have the chance to go, do it.  I felt so much peace and I was constantly in awe of the Balinese people, how devout they are and how beautiful their daily rituals are.  I also took about 700 photos.

I am nailing down the plan for the little girls room. The paint color is Dunn Edwards Moijito, which is a nice place minty color.  We also got a new ceiling fan from Lowe’s that I really love. It’s simple but moves a lot of air. A must for anyone who lives in Arizona.

In planning the gallery wall I want to do in the girls’ room, I immediately the amazing sculptures that are in Monkey Forest, which is equal parts incredible and terrifying.  Not the sculptures, the monkeys. The Monkeys are EVERYWHERE.

I am excited to get to work arranging the art in the girls room!  In a week.  Because life.
