It's a little belated, but I wanted to say thank you so very much to all of you who wrote a kind word or scooped up new decals last week! I went on a little vacation shortly after the launch and have been meaning to get back here to say thank you ever since. It brought me a lot of joy, launching this new season's decals, and all of you made it extra special. Thank you, thank you.
It feels good to be back home now, after a wonderful and much needed road trip with one of my dearest pals, Kenzie. I couldn't have dreamed up a better companion to head south with. Our destination was our friend Betsy's beautiful home in the trees in Asheville, NC.
Along the way there was an amazing farmers' market with the best tacos ever, zero visibility fog while driving, Fleet Foxes playing as we traveled through the gorgeous Shenandoah Valley (a favorite moment), lots of laughter and good conversation, lots of BBQ, lots of jam (I ended up coming home with 8 jars of jam - how did that happen?), epic downpours, some dreamy shopping, and Monticello. Our visit with Betsy was perfectly lazy, full of knitting and period dramas, snuggles with her sweet pups, and lots of great food (I'm still thinking of Betsy's pimento cheese!).
Sadly, I've no pictures of Betsy's amazing home to share. Deeply entrenched in lazy vacation mode, I wasn't feeling much like documenting. Ever get like that? I'm a little disappointed with that choice now, but the good news is I'm totally recharged and re-inspired for the next big push of work to be done. I forgot what feeling like a rested, sane person feels like. Feels pretty great.
Happy new week to you, friends, it's nice to be back here with you. xo, S
