Hi, Internet! It’s been a minute.
C recently mentioned that I should update the blog, and I was all, “what’s it been, two, three weeks?” Oh, a month and a half? Mmmkay.
I didn’t intend to go dark for so long. I thought I’d take a little breather from posting while we prepared for the start of a busy retail holiday season and the relocation of our flower shop, but then one week turned to two, and then six, and… well, November 2015 may go down in history as the fastest month of all time.
Let’s catch up!
While I was out, I:
Turned 31. Admittedly, I wasn’t as easy-breezy about this birthday as my 30th — I’m officially ‘in my 30s’ now? — but my family and friends made it extra sweet and special.
Renewed my library card and read some good books.
Watched all seven seasons of 30 Rock on Netflix.
Impulsively decided all our furniture and fixtures would be cuter in the new space with some fresh color, and spent the two weekends before our move painting everything in sight.
Made and delivered dozens of Thanksgiving centerpieces.
Moved our flower shop in four days during the holiday weekend. “We’ll be closed anyway,” I said at the beginning of the month, “it’ll be a piece of cake!” [Insert the wide-eyed emoji right here. Heck, insert three.]
Learned how to successfully remove frosted vinyl and adhesive from plate glass windows.
Squeezed in some quality time with family for the holiday.
Spent a lot of time in Lowe’s.
Celebrated my husband’s birthday. Bless his heart, he spent his work vacation carrying boxes and furniture, organizing contractors, and knocking down walls in the new shop. (I love you, babe!)
Drank a lot of wine.
