Ive been all about my home this week. I think after being so busy with the Dylan shirts for a month straight, I completely lost all time and energy to put into my home, which is normally a daily thing for me. I love when my home is clean, my floors are vacuumed, things are put away. It just makes me feel less stressed. Of course its not always like that. Its a constant thing... but letting it go for weeks and weeks, it got bad! I didn't just have dust bunnies, it was more like dust monsters!!! My vacuum had been clogged up so bad it was better just to sweep, but James fixed it up for me and it works like new again. (yes, i get completely excited over my vacuum).
This weekend has brought much stress relief to my life! I finally took some time off and it felt so good. Friday afternoon James and I took a trip to Fredricksburg so I could buy this beautiful flag you see above for an upcoming lookbook, and just for my home b/c its beautiful. It will be adorning our porch soon. We walked around the town after that and grabbed some dinner at this place we had gone to with my mom many years ago. We took a back road home that we had no idea where it led to and it ended up being the LONG way home, but it was super nice. It was a small backroad with lots of ranches and cattle. We drove over about 10 cattle guards. We were just glad there was an out and we didn't have to turn around and go back to the entrance b/c it was the longest road ever!
Saturday I spent the entire day cleaning the house. Man it felt good. Its already a mess, just two days later, ha ha. But much cleaner than it was before. It instantly made me feel good. Sunday I intended to knock out all the rest of my custom orders but I felt really tired and had a hard time focusing on anything, so not much got done at all... but that was a pretty good thing in the end.
Then yesterday after work we hit some thrift stores in Bandera and had the best thrifting luck ever. I found so many things that reminded me of my mom, even found some of her broken china jewelry at one place. And an old drawing of my friends dad who passed. It was like their spirits were all around us yesterday and it was such a good feeling. Ive been missing my mom so much lately, so it was like a big warm hug.
This morning James is home and he dug up our little rock path we made over a year ago that we did wrong and instantly got buried in dirt the first time it rained. So I got out their and put my hands in the dirt with him and relaid it. Its so cute, hopefully we did it RIGHT this time! I guess well see when it rains.
Now its time to get back to work. Get caught up on customs. Before I know it well be knee deep in shirts again. This round of Dylan tee pre orders ends in two days!!!
