#2,150 Veteran’s Day + Holly.
by Erin Napier
I woke up this morning with my grandfather on my mind, as I do every Veteran’s Day. He was a sailor aboard the USS Indianapolis at Pearl Harbor, a daddy of 4 four girls, he carried pink Extra bubblegum in his pockets to give away to whomever he might run into on his errand running each day, and he was a bonafide hero who was the spitting image of George Clooney. I wish Ben could have met him.
Over on the Lucky Luxe blog today, I got to interview Holly Mathis who is one of my all-time favorite interior designers. She’s become a sweet friend along the way, thanks to her brother Jimmy Don, who introduced us. Click over and read about her hangups with Sonic styrofoam cups and how she balances her work life as a mama. You’ll love her!
Also, random pretty afternoon photo. I love you, fall!
A lot of folks tell me they only remember to read my blog if I post it on facebook, so the new blog site (daily journal, actually) will send my daily posts right to all subscribers’ email inboxes. If you haven’t signed up yet, you’re welcome to hop over and get on board and it’ll make it way easier to read my completely unimportant news every day. I honestly can’t imagine anyone would want this in their email, but HEY my friend who is a marketing genius tells me it’s important so there you have it!
