hello, lovelies. i wanted to come share with you today about my life lately. it’s been good, fun and rewarding but incredibly hectic. i feel as though i’m coming off the busiest month of my life, and though it’s about to slow down a little, we still have a lot going on. i’ve been trying to take things slowly, and soak in each moment one at a time, but if i’m honest it’s been hard. i’m especially trying to be mindful of my body and my baby (since i’m six months along now) and though i’m feeling great, i’m trying not to take advantage of it. quilt market was amazing, and one the biggest milestones in my creative career thus far. i wouldn’t trade it for anything, but i’m still trying to recover from the trip and sleepless nights of sewing that led up to it. equally as exciting (but crazy) is that david and i are officially homeowners! today will be the last day in our rental, and we’ll be sleeping in our new place tonight (i think). we’ll be busy painting, installing new floors and cleaning up the new place all week, then hopefully moving our furniture in by next weekend. we’ve got family close and lots of friends helping so don’t worry (mom), i won’t be lifting anything heavy!
though life is crazy and hectic and exhausting, i’m so thankful. thankful for being near family, thankful for a new home and thankful for new opportunities. i’m grateful for being healthy and for carrying a healthy baby. i’m so in love with my husband it hurts. i’m inspired to create new work and thankful for the opportunity to do so. we have a lot going on but it’s a fun season in our lives.
thank you so much for hanging out with me this week and thanks for baring with me as i’ve been a little preoccupied. i’m excited to be back and can’t wait to share with you more next week!
