The weekend view…
Bits of rambling and this and that all rolled into one.
This week- it is all about flower market shopping, video shoots, a new project, travel plans and something fun.
Sunday is a bit of a quiet day over here.
I might hit snooze and sip coffee a bit slower before getting ready for the day. And it is always a day I spend a little time with a good old fashioned pen and paper jotting things down for the day or the week.
Last week, I spent several days enjoying the outdoors and took advantage of the spring like weather we were having to log some miles on a few mountain trails. We are not far from fields, orchards, vineyards and mountains- which means lots of scenery to choose from for getting out and getting moving.
I have noticed if I take even a day or 2 off- I am just not feeling the same as I usually do-
so I try to keep that schedule up when traveling and even if I have just a bit of time to jump in.
And it has become almost a novelty thing to go for a run in a new city and check it off.
One of my happy places
I spent some time on Friday morning at one of my happy places.
One that was filled with all the pretty blooms.
The SF Flowers Mart is one of my favorite spots to shop for all things floral.
This stop was mostly about greens with a few blooms for a new project I am working on- but you know I had to bring home a couple extras just to enjoy as well. And a bonus to shopping local flower markets- the prices are insanely good compared with florists and grocery stores most of the time. I say most… because sometimes Whole Foods will get a truckload of peonies and sell for less than the flower market.
That new project…
I cannot wait to share more about that new project I have been working on.
Truth be told, it is actually a project I have been working on for over a year- but this month, I am working on a new installment that is similar and yet… different.
Excited to finally be able to share with you and spill the beans on the first part
in just a couple of weeks.
Lights, Camera, Action
While at the flower market- I met with my Balsam Hill family for a bit of behind the scenes video shooting.
I pretty much did my usual thing- walking around stopping to admire every beautiful bloom and even snap a few photos of them- all while the camera followed me around capturing bits of this and that. I will be sharing more about what that is for soon.
I am planning ahead and putting several bits of travel on the calendar for the next couple of months.
I have several projects I am planning for- that beach bike and blooms photography project- as well as some pretty amazing travel features coming up that will be coming to the pages of Romantic Homes.
A New Romance
And speaking of Romantic Homes- so many questions from you about how I became the Editor – and so will be putting together a Q&A of sorts and answering questions about that new role of Editor in Chief (8 months of working with them already!)
And as well, will be answering as some of your questions about blogging.
Thanks again to all who filled out the survey!
And.. Valentine’s Day is coming up quickly. Are you ready?
This week I will be sharing a few ideas for Valentine’s Day that don’t involve roses.
I know- the flower queen over here- but I ask my husband NOT to buy me roses for Valentine’s Day.
Happy random weekend everyone.
