This week has left me weak and exhausted. The past few days have been spent scrubbing, mopping and degriming my place. I am sad to say goodbye to my first apartment in Denver-- it was very, very good to me but it is time for another adventure. Today I am turning in the keys and then ,without a glance backward, boarding a plane. I am headed to Austin for the holiday weekend. I've never been there and am pretty thrilled to spend the next 5 days in the humid Texas air. I've only heard good things. The 4th of July is a holiday that is based around summer fun. I love that. I also love that I will be spending it on the lake with 4 of my most wonderful friends. I need this vacation. I simply can't wait. I'll resume posting on Wednesday, so I wish you all a wonderful (safe) Independence Day weekend! Hope there are fireworks and sparklers involved!
A few things to keep you busy while I'm gone...
Inspiration to turn moving boxes into something amazing...cardboard heaven.
Lovely strappy Swedish sandals.
A story of: stolen plants. :(
A twist on one of my favorite summer sandwiches.
Etsy love, cool coasters.
Good idea: beautiful scrapped wood wallpaper.
