This isn’t so much an agenda because of how disorganized my life is at the moment is but I am calling it one regardless. My routine is in a state of flux at the moment – a here-there and everywhere that started about two weeks ago. My husband is in his fourth year of medical school and decided to spend a month of rotation work at UNC-Chapel Hill. This started at the end of September and left me in a tizzy because I hate to be alone. Especially “left” alone – If I am doing the one leaving I am totally fine with it, ha.
For our first week apart I sucked it up, cranked out design work and ate the healthiest I have in two years (it’s just kinda hard to feed your husband something delicious and fix yourself a salad) but after about 6 days I went into a panic and called my mother. She has recently been doing a lot of painting (my mother is a fine arts major from Tulane), so tempted by the idea of getting a brush back in my hand, I packed up GADABOUT and drove the hour north for a week with my mother at the beach. And it truly was bliss. I spent the week going to bed early, drinking nice wine, painting and doing wonderful, happy client work. Between the two of us we finished four pieces! You can see two of them on my instagram, here. We had so much fun we actually entertained the idea of selling some when I get my shop back up and running. So hopefully we can make that happen soon!
I would have loved to spend the remaining two weeks with that sort of schedule but after a while I sort of remembered all those reasons why I love my husband and felt it was time to make the drive to Chapel Hill… So fast forward through a fun weekend and here I am, clicking away on my computer from a better-than-expected hotel room. Today is my first day here and I have just now gotten unpacked and settled in. Though I am terribly excited to explore the area (hello, Furbish Studio) I know that getting my head on straight will take a day or two so please bear with me.
Above I gathered a few little things that caught my eye last week. Some of the pieces I have ( The Monika Vinader bracelet was a gift from a dear friend and the love crush loafers are on order ) and others I have my eye on. All the usual black, cream, and tan, haha. I hope you enjoy them!
