And, I can tell you what we haven't been doing...no gutting our house, no hauling furniture everywhere, and no going days and weeks without having my husband home for dinner. The weekend after last fall's Angel's Attic Show, our family moved up to Sandpoint, ID for my husband's new job and some serious downtime for all of us. We are happy to report that we've enjoyed weekends playing Wii games, reading books, and bumming around the house for the first time EVER! We also took our first family vacation to Disneyworld in Orlando a couple weeks ago and had the time of our lives! It's been so good for us to recharge after so many years of constant stress. We tease now that we all feel almost "normal"!
After the whirlwind of selling our home, being part of several shows, going through a housing emotional roller coaster of trying to find a place to live in Sandpoint, and packing and moving two giant U-haul trucks (one unloaded in the middle of a very rainy night), I didn't want to look at another piece of furniture for a while and to be honest, I wasn't sure when I would... Family before furniture, right?! In the last few weeks, I've been pulling out my decorating books and magazines, dreaming of projects, and I even think the furniture in the garage has been calling my name :) Clearly, I've been cured from the "I just want to relax a while" phase.
I'm very excited to be planning out projects and setting some show dates for this upcoming spring which I'll keep posted here. I've also been creating some new jewelry that I can't wait to share with you!
