I cannot even tell you how essential it is that today is Friday.
I have been running on fumes for days now. Moving homes and opening a store was probably too much to try and accomplish so close together. Especially when you are a complete control freak and have to have your hand in everything. Trying to remember all the advice from the other week about delegating more. Especially when I have such amazing ladies around me. I had planned on introducing you to my two business partners, and our two interns-turned-full-time-co-workers this week- but we ran out of time. Next week.
I am experiencing a new kind of tired. This body of mine is surprisingly strong for its size, but it just wasn’t made to move large furniture for days on end. I think there is a unique kind of exhaustion that I think comes from using your brain and body at an intense pace all day. I have usually only ever done one or the other at a time. Switching from doing our finances, to moving couches in and out of storage, to tracking orders and managing production, to building beds…At the end of the day I am mentally and physically exhausted. But then every morning I get to snuggle with this:
Or go see progress at the store like this:
Laying out Gray’s work for a gallery wall.
Then at the end of the day I get to come home to this. Well this, and a glass of wine (or hard liquor, sorry I’m not sorry), and then all is right in the world.
I am sure y’all are getting sick of these iPhone dumps. I would love to have something else to talk about, but all I do these days is work on the store, spend not enough time with my baby, spend even less enough time with my husband, watch Bravo and sleep. I was going to try and give you taste of the design work that has managed to go on in the midst of this mayhem, and introduce you to the ladies…But that is going to have to wait until next week.
When we may or may not have an announcement at some point.
Have a good weekend everyone!
