The past few weeks has been a time of never ending change and renewal. After a few years of pretty much being a workaholic I’ve taken some time off to get Luke settled and happy in his new school, see old & meet new friends, and to adjust to a whole new life in a bungalow on the other side of the country. I’ve also allowed myself some quiet time to focus on where my company is headed next, as big changes lay ahead in that department.
Since my “official” office is still in Virginia for just ten more days (GULP!) all that quiet is about to change. Next week we go back to DC do the final move out of our house, host an estate sale (Oct 11-3 if you are DC), shoot five design projects, charity meetings, and then the set up studio/slash office here in LA. Oh boy.
But hopefully I’ve gained clear direction on where I’m heading while doing some of this…

Visiting a slew of beaches.
Setting up our rented bungalow. Hint at my new MARK pillow sample in Iris is here.
Endless dog walks and having time to look at other people’s designs not being so caught up in what I have on my design plate.
Testing new colors for bedding. Here is coral in the Bang Bang design.
Looking at new samples. (Happy as a clam when new design the MONOGRAM pillow samples arrived.)
Obsessing over these majestic palm trees that are everywhere. They are just so insanely cool!
I’ve done some work in a very temporary home office.
Since we are all squeezed in to much smaller space I feel like there are pets everywhere! (A very tired dog the morning after her first doggy day care)
Life has been more simple and complex all at with everything.
And I of course have to mention the weather. Cool enough for a sweater overnight, but sunny and warm all day to hang bathing suits out to dry after the beach. Actually a bit disorienting is it fall…?
Have you ever had a time of change in your life? I would LOVE to hear about it.
Looking forward to conquering all the changes & challenges & adventures.
