March 18, 2013:
There is just so much excitement in my life right now I don't know whether to lie down with smelling salts in hand or run a marathon. Okay, let's be real, I'm not going to be running any marathons any time soon. Hell, my husband would just be thrilled if I went out and walked for 15 mins each day. It's hard to tear yourself away from the list of to dos though when there is this level of excitement.
Where do I even begin?
Margot Austin delivered me some advanced copies of a little feature we shot back in December with Stacey Van Berkel. Can I get an AMEN? #Wineva Road is in print in the upcoming House and Home Special Best Makeovers feature. If you have a subscription, this is a special issue so you still have to go out and buy it. The earliest it will be on the shelves is March 25th. I'm DYING to share it. The shoot turned out even better than I'd expected. I mean I saw the shots but there is just something about the crop + the glossy paper.... SWOOOOON.
I FINALLY made decisions about Luke's room. As you know, it is in the current issue of Style at Home and it is sweet and adorable just like him but he needs to be sleeping in an actual bed before he turns 4 or I will forever feel that I've somehow damaged him later in life. Designing the bed itself was pretty easy, but choosing the fabric for it was harder than I'd anticipated because I couldn't find the right colours to work with the existing drapery. I also wanted to reuse some amazing pillows and blankets that I had from when we had a store that are in a blue black and rich deep red. They are uber luxe so I think that his room will now have a timeless feel to it with the right amount of cheeky - just like him.
Also in the Luke department. He is a budding young artist and had his first sleep over this weekend at his grandparents' house. I arrived home later in the day to find the most amazing piece of colouring he's done to date. His progression has been rapid in terms of his artistic ability. He only started drawing stick people 3 weeks ago and then BAM he produced this piece of colouring that stopped me in my tracks and had my jaw on the floor. HE IS BRILLIANT! My fears that he would grow up to become an accountant completely unfounded!!!
I have a week of fashion shows ahead as Toronto Fashion Week kicks off. Seriously, I don't know how people can go out to events every night? I'm liking my shut in life let alone having to worry about hair/makeup/what to wear. I should have stopped eating a week ago. Oy. There's also going to be a big announcement this week in regards to another little project I've been asked to be involved in... more on that shortly!
Oh and then THIS happened....
