Hello! We have joined the party and are, hopefully just, fashionably late. After repeated encouragements to get the store on Facebook and talk about ongoing projects I am ready to dedicate the time to share what is going on in our world.
Being open 7 days a week, life at the store is always busy. Interior design business has skyrocketed and my long distance project (in Montana) is at its busiest time, less than 6 weeks to completion. Even with all these activities, it is important to take the time and reflect on what is inspiring us at the store and in the home.
Today, I am thinking about growing up in the South and spending those hot days drinking refreshing Southern Sweet Tea. In this month’s Southern Living they had a recipe for sweet tea and it was so easy I decided to go ahead and make it. I can’t remember the last time I had ‘real’ sweet tea, not the kind you get in a can or a bottle filled with chemical sweeteners and preservatives. It was such a treat to have the real thing. It made me think of running around summer cottages with screen doors banging and rockers swinging on the front porch. Times when families were at home together and spent hours just hanging out with no distractions, other than each other. This weekend, take the time to just ‘hang out’ with friends, family and especially moms. Enjoy the fresh air, the sunshine, the front porch and each other.
