Quite the week we’ve had here. Wrapped up the basement and living room projects (coming next week) and had an all day shoot with Anthro yesterday. It was so awesome to work with one of my favorite brands in my hometown. We’re gearing up for a trip next week so lots of getting organized and packing on the agenda. Wishing all of you a great weekend and Happy Mother’s Day.
