After much relaxing last weekend, this week has been a busy one. How is it already Friday evening?!?
I'm way behind on blog-visiting and comment-leaving. Needless to say, I've totally neglected this blog, too!
Part of the reason for that is we weren't home for the first half of June. We took an all-out family vacation to Florida with stops at Disney World, SeaWorld, and LEGO Land.
|LEGO Land may have been my favorite theme park|
|Cinderella's Castle at Disney World|
|Cypress Gardens in LEGO Land|
|I think you can tell this is from SeaWorld :)|
And while at Disney, I met Cindy from Cottage Instincts! She's an absolute delight--which you can already tell from her blog--but meeting her in person just confirmed that.
All the theme-parking was followed by a relaxing stay on the white-sand beaches and translucent jadeite waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
And a visit to Ybor City in Tampa where I took far too many photos of the charming casitas found there. Because I want to downsize and live in a casita.
So, upon coming home, I had reality to return to, several candle orders to fill, library meetings to attend, and those sorts of thing this week. Good stuff, but busy stuff nonetheless.
I've also been prepping the house for an appearance in A Sort of Fairytale's Bloggers' Home Tour, held by the lovely Stacey, on the first of July. Which means I've decided to try to hammer out several projects leading up to that and cram too much into too little time! :)
Seriously, I'm beyond tickled to be participating. If you haven't seen the series, check it out here. Such a lovely variety of beautiful homes to behold! And while you're visiting A Sort of Fairytale, pop in and visit Stacey's new design services business, Cottage Industry. She's holding a giveaway through Monday to celebrate the grand opening!
Back to the home tour though...since I can't leave well enough alone, I'm madly repainting beadboard, trying to finish a few small furniture projects, and putting the finishing touches on the craft room. (Which, with God as my witness, will be done in time to go on the home tour!)
So here I am, coming up for a breath of air, to say hi, and hoping that your week has gone well. I'm looking forward to catching up on your blogs and seeing what you've been up to!
