Throwback Thursday

Two throwbacks this Thursday. One's work-related and one makes me dream about our upcoming week at the BEACH. [video width="1280" height="720" mp4="http://hadleybinion.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/Finding+Your+Dreams+a+Home-HD-2.mp4"][/video]

Sure seems like yesterday that this little girl was learning to walk. This TV commercial for Roberts Brothers will always be one of my all-time favorite projects.

CANNOT WAIT for our upcoming week-long beach trip. The collage above is a flashback to last year and the year before that. No place I'd rather be than with my boogie at the beach.


I have so many new projects coming up and can't wait to share them with you soon! Now just to find the time...

TBT: the beach + white space

I've decided to do a "Throwback Thursday" post (if I can ever remember to do it), from my old blog onto this one. I still haven't figured out how to transfer my old blogger posts onto this wordpress blog (for a reasonable price that is!), and it makes me so sad to lose all of those years here. If anyone knows how to do this easily please let me know. I guess I could go in and manually transfer every post, but I barely have the time to repost one, let alone hundreds. So here goes: this post from June 2013 makes me happy... thankyoulord

What a wonderful weekend away with my two loves. This was our first actual “family” vacation— just us three. I think the images speak for themselves but we had a wonderful time. It was my-kind-of perfect: laid-back, sans makeup, sunshine, lazy beach days, catching up on sleep, building sandcastles, lots of snuggle time, poolside reading, yummy seafood and just good, quality time together.


I recently read something that has stuck with me:

“Life is all about the white space.”


If you’re like me, you make very little time for white space. My day is packed full of to-do lists, phone calls, errands and appointments. I always feel like there are never enough hours in the day to finish it all, and then 4pm rolls around and I don’t know where the day went.

So…I’m trying to make more time for the “white space” in my life…to say “no” to a design project when my plate is too full, to stop trying to be everything to everyone and everywhere at once…because that white space is so critical to balance and joy. That white space is where the things that matter happen and where our relationships grow.

Well, our little 4-day getaway was definitely full of white space! It was a relaxing, quiet, non-event-filled, long weekend—which was just what we needed. How nice to slow down for a little while and let time stand still.
