Welcome to the weekend view-
which is coming to you this weekend from beautiful Charleston, South Carolina.
Which basically means, it is a Charleston edition.
I am in Charleston for Haven Conference this weekend. Haven is a home and DIY conference that is full of blogging info and full of so many blog friends.
This Haven was also full of some pretty exciting things- Lamps Plus hosted a dinner for KariAnne (Thistlewood Farms) and I in celebration of our books. They invited some of the Haven attendees and friends and we had so much fun laughing and enjoying a wonderful evening with Lamps Plus. And I also brought one of the early editions of the book with me to share- so some folks got a sneak peek.
To celebrate- they also offered these beautiful Color Plus candlesticks that were on each of the tables at the conference to anyone who wanted to take them home. They are customizable and available in lamps as well and were snatched up pretty quickly.
And we enjoyed exploring some of the beautiful paths and areas in the morning for a bit of exercise.
The weather has been hot and humid for sure- and is pretty much sweat worthy the minute you walk out of an air conditioned room. Exploring in the heat and humidity is a bit different than I am used to for sure- but so much fun.
Of course, after the conference wrapped up- I went exploring in Charleston.
The architecture is incredible- so beautiful!
And one of my favorite things were the secret gardens and yards that beckoned you step inside and explore a bit.
I will be sharing some of my favorites very soon.
My baby baby is turning 20. She recently moved back home for a bit and I am so enjoying having her in the house again. But not sure how time has flown by that quickly and she is so grown up already!
Even so, she will always be my baby girl.
Exciting stuff coming your way this week – and will be sharing a bit more about my book and a redesign plan as well soon.
Have a wonderful rest of the weekend everyone!!
