This summer has been the busiest of my life. Projects upon projects and I've become a total late-nighter. My family has been so supportive but there is always a feeling of guilt at spending any time away from them. Time away from my kids is really difficult but the trade off is positive for our family and me as a mother. We are on our way out the door tomorrow for our only summer jaunt of a vacation and I can't wait. I'm not planning on bringing any form of distraction with me. No books, sketchbooks, audio devices or anything. I am just being with my family.
Apart from picking up my slack this summer, Dustin has taken over garden care, which has resulted in him using cute terms like "my lavender" or "my flower beds". He brought home a jasmine bush the other day for his flower beds. The photography we are enjoying today is a result of his garden.
When we leave tomorrow I am leaving behind an overflowing inbox of incredibly kind email that I have not returned yet. Pictures of project made out of my fabrics, questions about patterns, and more. I'm sorry I haven't gotten around to this-email is the one part of my business that I really struggle with. I am so touched by the kind emails that come in-if you don't receive an immediate response please don't think you are being ignored. I have an email day scheduled next week after we return. :)
I hope you are all soaking up the last bits of summer in style. I'll be back soon and we'll kick off some new fun around here.
