Dearest Ruthie (part I)

If you haven't already heard me rant about this gal, I won't again, but I will say that she is amazing and has been a huge part in making Nashville home for Emily and myself. Ruthie is great for so many reasons but she is also a very talented designer. 

Pictured below is Ruthie in her newly-bought, lovely home. I set that chair on the floor myself and it was the first piece of furniture in the house. It also happens to be her favorite chair. 

This is a two-part portrait, but even I have no clue what the second part will look like. As you can see, there is nothing but bareness around her. A blank canvas in which to work her magic. When Ruthie has done all her finishing touches to her new home the second shot will be taken, and I can't wait to see what will have changed by that point!  

If you're in the Nashville area and see the grandest smile of your life, that will be her. Be sure to say hello! You're the best, Ruthie!
