I am back to reality after my super fun week long road trip to North Carolina. For the first time though, I felt those long hours in the car. I kept having to stop and walk around..I guess getting old is not so much fun lol. First stop was my parents house in Amelia Island. I got there late Friday night and reunited with my little friend Maisie. She is so darling and energetic. Of course, seeing my parents was fun as well.
When I packed up from this show, I headed back to Statesville and straight to Devon’s house. She invited a few friends to come and shop. That was the icing on the cake for this trip. Lots of fun girls buying jewels and drinking wine.
All in all, the most fabulous trip. So thankful for all my gracious hosts, Heather, Karen and Devon. I am also so grateful to my friend Pam for letting me stay with her the whole week! What a great time.
The only bummer of enjoying an unbelievable vacation in July is that August is horrendous. It is so hot and sticky here in Miami, it is hard to take. I haven’t even attempted to go down to my pool, and it shows in my crazy paleness. Around this time I always have a conflicted sense of being sad that summer is almost over and happy for Fall to start. Fall is always such a busy and exciting time for my business and I am ready this year to get started.
My goals for the rest of August are:
1. Clean out my closet
2. Organize all of my kp designs stuff (still in bags from my trip)
3. Have my panels made for my bedroom
4. Paint my bedroom
5. Have two chairs recovered in fabric I purchased 7 months ago.
I feel like if I put this list out there in the universe, it has a better chance of being accomplished. Most of this list is doable, but realistically, the first two are most likely to happen and I will keep working on the last 3.
I will back-post about my trip this week. It really was so much fun, but two highlights were:
Making it to the Galley to catch this sunset.
Our first attempt earlier in the week was not so fruitful…
and at my Pop Up Shop, a long time reader came who happened to be on Nantucket. Her name was Laura and she was so nice, it made my day!
Hope everyone is having a nice summer.
