I want to start Thanksgiving week off by showing my thanks to all of you that support Maison Everett! If you don’t already, go sign up for the newsletter (you can do so here). I’ll be sending the first official newsletter later this afternoon that’ll include a discount code along with some of my personal favorites pieces in the shop that help encourage me to give thanks every day – and in particular, this time of year. Jump over and sign up now so you don’t miss out! xo, Holly
Hey Baton Rouge and New Orleans, I’m coming for you! I’ve had several past clients ask if I will be doing sessions this year, and I’m happy to say yes! It’s a bit earlier than our normal schedule, but the perfect time nonetheless to photograph your sweet families before the holidays get chaotic. The cost includes printing rights and there are no hidden/additional fees. I look forward to seeing you and your growing families. xo, Holly

Happy Friday, friends. We decided to extend our stay in Nashville one more week. No complaints here – because we are in the final stretch. By this time next week, Greg will be finished taking the TX Bar and law school will officially be OVER. Done and done! It feels like ages ago that we made it to the halfway mark. The last 3 years of life have been full for our little family: full and chaotic and adventurous and exhausting….but always beautiful. I am feeling gratitude for all of it. I’ve been rereading my original Friday Favorites posts like this one and this one that I started when Greg was in his first year of law school and Remy was a bitty babe. They mean more to me now than I realized they would. In one of them I wrote, “when our day-to-days seem monotonous and routine, this project pushes me to think bigger…” To think bigger about the work I’m creating, the life I’m living, the love I’m giving to those around me. Sometimes routine and monotony is exactly what I need to do those things best. So here’s to another week of taking each day as it comes, and celebrating the victories however big or small. Squeeze your loved ones and enjoy the weekend. xo
Food for Thought to Explore over the Weekend: Katrin Korfmann is the genius behind those photographs above.
And lastly, my good friend is the genius behind ANKR. I’ve had the opportunity to work from their office this week and witness the hard work+energy that surrounds the day-to-day of a start up. I can’t wait to see what happens with this company. Just remember, you heard about it here first!
I was honored to be a part of this month’s issue of 225 Magazine. They asked me to share about our experience living abroad, including our favorite and most challenging part. If you’re interested in reading it, its available online here (and local friends in Baton Rouge can pick up a copy around town!). Do you have any other questions you’d like to know about our decision to move abroad? Let me know, and I will attempt to share them in future posts!
You may have noticed that I fell off the radar for a bit. I’ve been updating this space and, for the first time, all of my creative pursuits are finally housed under the same roof. It feels just right. If you have a moment, grab your coffee and join me in browsing through everything that lives here now. You can read the full story about the Makings of Maison Everett, where its been and what its become. As a family, we celebrated the launch this morning with our favorite homemade oat bran banana pancakes – though I slightly altered the recipe. Follow as stated in the link but exchange the oat bran for 1/2 c whole oats, and the whole wheat flour for 1 c instead of just 1/2 c. Greg says these are his favorite yet! Let us know what you think…about the pancakes and this new home that I’m pleased to share with all of you. Enjoy the weekend! xoxo…*holly
