The Weekend + Courtney Giles

Happy October!! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. My weekend was, well, let me explain...

Friday night and Saturday were both full of errands, almost two weeks of laundry, and filling up my almost empty refrigerator, paying bills, changing air filters and mopping my kitchen and dining room floors for the first time in -  well, it doesn't matter how long. :)

I showered and was in bed my 4:30PM, not AM on Saturday afternoon. After working long hours last week + everything else I had to do, I guess that might make a little sense.

Am I the only one who has settled in for the night at 4:30PM on a Saturday? Probably so.

I surrounded myself with my book and magazines, but ended up talking to a good friend on the phone for a few hours. She had been on a few dates last week with a guy who conveniently forgot to mention that he got married two weeks ago. Don't. Even. Get. Me. Started. 

I slept 10 hours, yet still woke up exhausted. I turned on the TV and watched my minister's sermon. The subject of the sermon was titled, "Dealing With Burnout." How ironic, I thought...

I ended up working most of the day to try to get ahead for what is going to be another busy week. A deadline at work is looming, but I will be referring the notes I made during the sermon as soon as the deadline is over. :)

I said all of that to say that I didn't get to take any photos this weekend, so these gorgeous spaces by the talented Atlanta designer, Courtney Giles are filling in for me today. I love the simple, clean, soft palettes and the little details like the lighting that seem to make the spaces extra special. You can see more of her beautiful portfolio here.

I hope you have a great Monday my friends...

  8. When I was in college---I couldn't understand burn out--embarrassing to admit but true. Then I hit my late twenties and really started to feel burnt out in areas of my life. It is real and no joke either. Hope you are feeling better after some rest---and I don't blame you one bit about getting in bed so early...I have definitely been there. Hope you are having a great Monday and week!!!
