This week I’m grateful for:
Blooming Hollyhocks and poppies- I’ve tried for so long to make your acquaintance:
To much to do – it’s good to be busy.
The S/S collection that is almost ready to take a trip east for a high summer photoshoot.
My moma – she did the photo-shoot food shopping -to take one more thing off my plate.
That I’m learning how to hand things over – to people who know what they’re doing – so I can keep doing what I know how to do.
Slowly and surely, I’m learning to stand up for myself. What’s that great line in Fried Green Tomatos? “What we really need is an assertiveness training class for southern women, but that’s a contradiction in terms -isn’t it?”
And that there’s a vacation coming up here soon – somewhere around a bend in the road. Every so often I see a vintage-inspired bathing suit, pareo wrap and big -wide-brimmed periwinkle hat -letting me know – there is a pause button around here somewhere.
Have a beautiful weekend – find a swimming hole – I’ll be in a muddy river. Cheers!
