i'm back! for a few days i was totally in the dark. well, our lights were working but our internet was out. apparently one of the pop-up thunderstorms hit the disc router for our building and fried the whole thing. it was a long few days. anyway, i'm happy to be back. i had fun working from tripper's office and an even funner holiday weekend. we saw a concert with the connicks at chastain on friday night in the pouring down rain. i think the rain made it even more fun. we slept in. we ate great food. we watched college football (go dawgs!). we goofed off. and monday i went out to my parents house up in north georgia. my mum and i went shopping, which was so nice! i can't show you what i bought because it's a present. for christmas! yes, i started my christmas shopping. what i can show you is the awesome new chandelier my parents found. it's incredible—perfect for the space—and did i mention it's incredible? dazzling, really. take a look!
gorgeous, no? it's full of amber and clear crystals. i love it! i'm not sure if you can make out the mirrors in the background, but they were a new find since i'd been there last as well. there are four of them total and they absolutely make the house sparkle. you can see the chandelier reflected in them all. so very lovely!
