Good morning, beautiful people. I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th! Can I just say, the DC area has had some BEAUTIFUL weather these past few days. Being outside has been absolutely wonderful and made it fun to take Vee out, too. She saw her first fireworks for the 4th and she was cool as a cucumber. I kept thinking she would freak out but she didn’t mind one bit! It was nice to recreate a bit of nostalgia from my childhood.
Personally, I’ve been trying to create some sort of balancing act between home, work, Peety Draws, being a good wife, and mommy-hood. It’s tough, with some days being easier than others. This past week has seen more progress in the Peety Draws department. My Etsy shop has been embarrassingly bare, mainly because I haven’t created anything I felt was worth posting. That, and finding time to keep it up to date was damn near impossible. But, that balancing act is becoming more of a routine and with that, I’ve been able to get a few things together to sell. Part of that is part of the Peety Draws poster, pictured above. Stay tuned for more!
My sister shared this amazing site with me: Lost My Name. I’m totally buying this for Vee. Such a sweet book and great idea!
