steve and i were in birmingham for a few days last week on jewelry business (more on that soon!).  we loved exploring a new city.  we had two layovers on the way there and two layovers on the way home–so we are sick of flying!  i am all for direct flights…but we live in a small town, so that can be tricky.  the boys’ stayed with their amazing auntie ellen and with our friend jessie and had a blast.  we ate some delicious food at ocean restaurant (hi olan and lena!) and saw an amazing sunset from the top of the vulcan.  we visited artist jennifer harwell and met visited some of the most creative/darling boutiques EVER! more pics tomorrow and something really fun on wednesday (it’s my birthday)–so check back!!
