Chaos Comes Before Order

Chaos Comes Before Order by Erika Firm DelphineSorry for the radio silence around here. Things have been … well … chaotic. On top of my already hectic home and work life, I was in a car accident two weeks ago. I can now say that I know exactly how it feels to be hit by a Mack Truck. (Not good, in case you were wondering). I’ve not been able to work a fraction of my normal workload, at home or at the studio. My projects and to do lists are piling up, my house is a certifiable disaster zone, I have no idea how I’m going to find a car I love as much as my old one, I haven’t been able to exercise (i.e. unload stress), I’m missing all the fun Spring Break things I should be doing with my little one, and I feel really really super lousy. But my very wise Tatie (“Auntie”) tells me, “Chaos comes before order.” So I push on.

So to all of you struggling to meet deadlines, struggling to get dinner on the table, or just plain struggling … chin up. Chaos comes before order.

And to all my clients: thank you for your extra patience. Xo —Erika.

Weeki Wachee Springs | Cool Water Color Palette

weeki wachee florida springs water color paletteA few weeks ago I played hooky from the studio and went to Florida with friends for a few days of fun. One of the highlights of the trip was a visit to the crazy, kooky Weeki Wachee Springs State Park. Isn’t the water gorgeous?! I could have stared at the cool green blue water all day. Oh, and there were mermaids. Real ones. Loved it!

Mint Wedding Inspiration

Mint Wedding Inspiration via DelphineIt’s no wonder mint’s popularity endures. It’s fabulous in any season and looks amazing as the main color or paired with just about any other hue (though we admit we love mint paired with neutrals and butter yellow best). Mint adds a certain calming and cooling sensation on such a big day. Though it’s trendy now, mint is truly a classic, versatile shade. We just adored finding these minty fresh ideas!
