Fun in the Florida Sunshine + End of Year Thoughts

Fun in the Florida Sunshine + End of Year Thoughts

Hi friends! So, I'm just gonna say this up front: I'm sorry I've been MIA for the past few months. Life with all it's ups and downs took over for a while, and I didn't have much time to sleep, let alone sew and update the blog. But I did want to get one last post in before the end of 2015 - a few photos of a family vacation in Florida over Christmas. It was the first time in years that I've seen both sides of my family in the same holiday, which made for an incredibly special and rare holiday season. Looking back over the past year, I'm so thankful for the new relationships and incredible opportunities that have come my way, including the unexpected support for this blog. Thank you so much to everyone who has took the time to read a post or leave a comment. It encourages me more than I can express.

Hi friends!

Happy day-after-Halloween! I hope you all had a safe and fun day, and partied late into the night. I love so many things about Halloween - the candy, the parties with friends, the candy, Halloween movies, the candy (ahem).....However I especially love the fact that it's socially acceptable to wear full out, ridiculous costumes in public for one night. I think I saw a giraffe, Poison Ivy, and Marty McFly walking down the street together last night while a vampire flew past on a skateboard. Pure magic.

Hey friends!

Sorry for my absence in the past few weeks. Right after the last post - BOOM! Work exploded. Not literally. That would be crazy. But there was just, like SO MUCH TO DO. It was insane.

Thankfully, the amount of work has slightly decreased, and I can see cleeaarrly now the RAIN is gone (please feel free to sing that song with me, out loud or in your head). So I finally have time for another blog post!

Which brings me to today's short and sweet, easy number:
