Forgive my lengthy absence. I have been savoring every sliver of the Thanksgiving holiday and indulging in the restorative wonders of home. I hope you were able to do the same over your break!
Time with family and friends always reminds me that merriment is about seeking simplicity, connecting with others, and retaining gratitude in all circumstances. Refreshed by all of my quirky and beautiful Texas adventures, I promise to make up for playing hooky by sharing these inspirations with you.
In short, I kept Austin weird, survived a deer-car crash, celebrated a Bachelorette weekend stranded at a country Wal-Mart, embarked on my first-ever photo and interview sessions to cover gorgeous Design in Real Homes (coming soon!), gobbled down a feast, and hit the year mark in Los Angeles. Life's unpredictable; brace yourself and celebrate at Merriment!

(Elizabeth was our hero driver! She didn't even swerve a bit after the massive deer literally leapt into our moving car. Thankfully, she had already celebrated her actual Bachelorette Weekend in Austin. Our misadventure was on the drive back home.)
