California Here I Come!
I'm heading out for the amazingly awesome Craftcation this weekend, and am so excited to mix and mingle with my own crafty kind. I hope to share a postcard or two with you all while I'm gone, but just wanted to say a quick hello before I leave.
In my mad rush to finish packing/errand running, I found this awesome mustard yellow vintage suitcase at my local thrift store for $7. Of course I had to bring it along (it even came with extra bags inside!)
I also took the time to point out where I'm going to the kids on our (thrifted) globe. When Liam (my four-year-old) heard I'd be staying on the beach, he told me to watch out for sharks and commenced in telling me how to safely get out of the water if there is one. Eleanor asked if I could take her on a princess airplane sometime, and Skyler was busy looking for Madagascar.
When Chris and the kids dropped me off at the airport, it was Liam who burst into tears. I gave them all hugs and kisses and walked inside tearing up myself. But I took some deep breaths and thought happy thoughts. It's going to be a whirlwind of a weekend, but renewing and life-changing I'm sure.
Hope you all have a great weekend and take time to rejuvenate, too!
