Happy weekend everyone.
Time for the weekend view full of this & that and today- a happy Father’s Day wish.
Sitting on the dock
If you follow me on instagram, you know that I was up in the Tahoe area this week for a photo shoot that involved a dock, a sunset view and a bunch of peonies.
Painting & Projects
Yesterday I painted the ceilings and walls in two rooms.
And while I am thrilled with how the rooms look- I am paying for it today.
My shoulder has decided to revolt. Which, to be honest, I knew would likely happen.
I have had shoulder issues for several years now. Yes, I have gone to physical therapy for months -3x a week- and the therapist was so surprised at how tight the muscles were in my shoulder blade area – that he could not believe I didn’t have terrible headaches all the time.
I used to think it was just from stress- but it might be an old repetitive overuse injury from years and years of competitive swimming. Either way, if you stop by for a cup of tea- my friend Ben Gay and I will put the kettle on. lol
Side note- The ceilings look INCREDIBLE with a fresh coat in semi-gloss. 🙂
Flax Linen Slipcovers
You all completely blew me away with your response to the slipcovers in my shop. The stock I had available sold out completely in just about 12 hours. Thank you so much for the enthusiastic energy- I am so thrilled you like them.
We currently have them on order and I have the listings set to Pre-Orders currently. If you would like to make sure you are able to grab your linens or slipcovers next time- you can order HERE.
Wishing all the dads & dad figures out there a very happy fathers day.
I grew up with two dads and a grandfather who all played a dad role in my life. When my parents divorced when I was 8 and we had 2 homes we bounced to and from – my dad was that rock in his house and in my childhood home, my stepdad became that guy.
I was not the easiest of kids as I got into teenage years- and I gave both of those guys a run for their money. Thankfully, they both were patient and understanding and my stepdad – who I lived with most of the time- even added a bit of humor in response to my attitude. Which of course, at the time just infuriated me more haha.
It took a few years, a 6 month stay with my grandparents in another city and a whole lot of me growing up and realizing that just because that ideal mom and dad and kids with the dog and cat version of my family changed- it was for the better. I had gained an extra dad and was lucky to have them.
