Hello! Oh my ... so this is what it feels like to be blogging again. Or just checking in anyway. The sudden break I took from blogging has been quite nice, but I sure have missed it. I've been busy, y'all. But so have the rest of my blogger friends who've been doing an amazing job at keeping up with their blogs. I don't have an excuse, and I don't know when I'll be back to full speed. But, to be honest, I'm not too worried about it. I will be back 100% when it's time.
Just to give you an idea of what I've been up to -- I've been a busy little bee working at my new job with my favorite brand, and I've been doing some freelance design blogging and social media for another small business here in town. The house is also keeping us busy. I've made little progress with things like artwork and small details here and there. At this very moment we're having our heater and air conditioner replaced, like whoa. It's a huge expense, but this house is 70 years old and it's about time someone did something really nice and grand for it. Next, our fireplace is going to get a cute facelift with a fresh coat of paint.
To keep me focused on designing and styling our dream home, I'm still pinning and finding new inspiration daily. And today I discovered the new home goods line by Steven Alan. Yes, it is wonderful, and I may have found another incredible and splurge-worthy site for all kinds of things I don't yet know that I need.
I'm in love with the rich stripes and the soothing nature of the jagged textiles. From napkins to throws and ceramics of all sorts, Steven Alan has found a nice balance between something you'd find in a cabin nestled in a snowy mountain somewhere and a bungalow in East Austin. Love!
