I’ve been neglecting you, dear blog [and anyone who reads it] – but I promise it’s been worth it.
I’ve almost completed a renovation of a 103-year-old home into an income property with #designerryan [pictures coming soon]. We still have to finish renovating the outside of the home in the spring [paint and patio and gardening] and I am still wrapping up decorating, but holy ride of our lives.
- 56 trips to home depot
- 3 “mom I don’t know if I can do this” meltdowns
- 4 falls through the bathroom floor into the downstairs unit (only 1 for me)
- 22 pizza pies
- 2 walls knocked down
- 3 kitchen sink faucets – because who can decide?!
- 6 demolition dumpsters
- 30+ gallons of Benjamin Moore paint
- 230847074612 life lessons learned
- 1 very happy couple [who kind of deserve a vacation - don't you think?]
We couldn’t be happier in our new space – and actually, [insert gasps] discussed buying our next renovation project over drinks during date night last week. I guess I could say, let the crazy begin, but it would be more accurate to say let the crazy continue… [you always knew we enjoyed our fair share of crazy].
I’m expanding my FEMPIRE! I’ve added t-shirts to my site’s products – because EMPOWERED WOMEN EMPOWER WOMEN and I think that message rules. Spread it, share it, and now you can wear it. [Link]
I’ve been ramping up for CHELSEA LEIFKEN’s debut at NY NOW in just a week and half - holy moly this girl is on fire! She will be introducing her LINEN COLLECTION + LEATHER COLLECTION + PRINTS COLLECTION which I can’t wait to share with you.
I’ve been soul-searching and 2015 planning and really giving up life’s next major steps to the universe. I don’t know exactly what this year will bring [despite all of my planning and manifesting], but I do know for sure that it will be an adventure – as always. Excited to bring you all with me.
Love + light,
