1. This week was business as usual - one of our designers flew out to present for a new build in Woodside, California (you'll only have to wait a year to see it, ha!) and we are working like crazy to finish the furniture designs for another massive lake house we're working on. The finishes at the lake house are in the middle of being implemented and now we're focusing on the furniture. It is expected to be completed by Christmas, so it's go time! It will be a modern rustic style in a very different way than we have done before. I think this image with the stone/timbers/modern light gives a good idea of the direction:

2. Last night we packed a picnic dinner and spent our evening at the lake. It was easily one of the best nights of our summer. Funny how it's rarely the lavish experiences that make the highlight reel; instead it's the moments filled with windblown hair, sandwiches on an old blanket, and kids giggling, that stay in my mind for years to come.
5. I've been doing Invisalign over the last few months. I'm at the end and had one stubborn tooth, so I have braces for a week! It has been interesting trying to film videos and talk to clients while trying to adjust to feeling 12 again, ha. So if I see you at market and I do a weird grin, you'll know why ;)
6. Our newest video is finally out! We had a bit of a hiatus, but already have another one coming for you next week! Here is a very sneaky peek of the kitchen makeover:
