Mood Board Monday 4.2.18

This week my husband + kiddos are off for Spring Break. Unfortunately, I’ve been fighting allergies for the last 2 weeks and they have deceptively gotten worse just when I thought I was getting better. Nevertheless, the show must go on. It’s been really busy around here lately. My son will be a teenager in a matter of days, and I’m excited to have a quick family get away on the books. The weather is changing, the days are getting longer, and my mind is full of new designs to be executed. I’m thankful for the future at hand. Some of this lighter mood is probably reflected in this week’s Mood Board, a nod to the first glimpses of summer.

Cheers to a fantastic week ahead for all of us!

Saturdays . . .

Happy Saturday, guys. Hope you had a fantastic week. All week long I’ve been working on re-entry to real life after my belated-birthday-business-trip to Carmel last weekend. Re-entry has been a little bumpy by my standards. I came back super energized, excited and ready to  push myself out of my comfort zone. But my TO DO list was major and trying to balance everything and fit it all in with homeschool has been a little challenging. Nevertheless, I know it will get done. I’m doing some “Spring Cleaning” in the shop and I’m having a special sale for my instagram followers, so if you aren’t following me on Insta click here and get in on the action. Sale will go live on Tuesday, when I get back in town. Yay!

In the meantime, be good to yourselves, Enjoy this weekend + make it a point to spend time doing something you love at some point before Monday rolls around again.

Our birthday get away was postponed, but the wait was definitely worth it!

Found my new favorite pen behind this yellow door . . .

Isn’t she pretty? The rose gold Quadro has 4 ink colors + pencil lead! . . . Perfection!

Il Fornaio for dinner . . .

Back to the hotel for brainstorming + a meeting of the minds in pj’s . . .

Last weekend Lori and I finally met up for our belated birthday weekend getaway. We usually meet in November, the actual month of our birthdays, but life happened, so we decided to meet up in February in Carmel. Let me tell you, it really was worth the wait. We stayed at Carmel Valley Ranch, a beautifully serene resort that was absolute perfection, and just what the Doctor ordered. When Lori and I get together, we cant help but talk shop, all the while encouraging and brainstorming ideas for each other’s businesses. It comes naturally, and it’s always fun.  I left there with a healthy To Do List, and a recharged mind and priorities. I look forward to implementing some of my goals immediately. I will share here with you that God has been putting it on my heart to become more visible in my  brand. It’s definitely something I struggle with, being the hardcore-introvert-behind-the-scenes-gal that I am. I’ve been working on ways to do it in a way that feels authentic to me. So be on the look out for more glimpses  of me *cringe.*  And if you see me around social media, coming out of my shell, be sure to say hi! The part that makes it worth it is getting to know you guys!
