Happy Friday

      Inspiration…
       it comes from everywhere and we use it for everything!

       I first became aware of the blog world several years back from the Julia Child movie. 
      Story of a young married women who wanted to take on the challenge of Julia’s coveted cookbook. She cooked 365 days from the cookbook journaling it onto her blog.
      LOVED… the movie.

      I was talking with a friend who said she was a blogger soon after. 
       She showed me her blog she encouraged me to check it out.
       OMG I had no idea there was a world of micro magazines on the web!
       Of course I found the fashion world, then the design and food world. 

      I was so inspired to start one.

      Truth be known I didn’t have a computer, I wasn’t a photographer, writer and we had a dinosaur PC of my husbands that I didn’t know a thing about.

      Long story short, that one died and I had to buy one, My kids said I needed a MAC. 
      Who doesn’t go with what our kids know is best!!!

      Naming the blog… was fun but I had no idea what to call it.
      What will I write about, who will care?

      I began thinking of our biggest obstacle when we first married. 
      His house was dark, dated with brown interior, orange avocado green appliances….
      yucky 50’s -70’s beach house. { I saw potential with the house}!!!

      After we married I moved all my things in & you could see my things and his needed to come together!
      I had to mesh our styles, he was a jock I was a girly model.
      I began designing and decorating our homes to incorporate both our styles.

      All of this inspired my blog name.

       I meshed our style to described us…
      My husband is the casual
      I brought the elegance

      We love how our every day living marries both of our lifestyles.
      The name was easy then…

      I was doing dishes and looked over to see this!
