The Sunday 7: Birthdays, Pillows, Sales, and Family

1. Although most weeks are filled with highs and lows, this week was the extreme. Our family has been on a roller-coaster of a ride these last couple years dealing with health issues, loss, and grief. Running a business, living life, and raising two young kids has taught us to be flexible and roll with the punches.

My Dad (G-Pa as we call him) saved the day and came to watch the girls while I went to a meeting that couldn’t be rescheduled. I came home to them playing on the porch and it was a moment I never want to forget.

2. We celebrated our California shop’s 1st birthday, announced the official trailer video to begin documenting our home build, and announced our spring warehouse sale! Oh, and we launched new designer pillows! ALL PILLOWS AND INSERTS SHIP FREE until May 1!!!

3. Friday was special. We did a makeover for my parents’ guest bedroom and my mom is making an appearance in an upcoming video! She and I basically look like sisters, so you’ll probably get a kick out of that!

In the meantime, you can catch up on all of our past webisodes HERE.

4. Our house is really ramping up and I’m there about 2x a day checking in and making decisions. It’s crazy how fast things are rolling now. Right now I’m trying to make some flooring decisions and landscaping. I think I feel about landscaping how our clients feel about design. They know what they like when they see it but feel overwhelmed getting there. 2 thing are for sure: hydrangeas and boxwoods.

5. I love following Minna So on Instagram. Her sweet and simple illustrations are always the perfect little pick me up.

6. Last week I posted quite a few picks from the H&M sale. Well, most of the things I bought already arrived and I’d like to reiterate how great these 5 pieces are in person!!!

7. Baking a treat is our favorite weekly Sunday afternoon tradition. The girls picked cake batter cookies today. PS. These nonstick gold cookie sheets I use are on sale right now!
