Weekend Plans 9/20 – 9/22 + A Few Life Updates!

Hello! So, I wasn’t planning on taking a blogging break this week but it was definitely necessary if I wanted to maintain some level of sanity. Once again I am realizing the truth of the phrase, “Everything happens at once.” See also: “When it rains, it pours.” It is all good things though! Just a lot to take on at once. The blog might be a little quieter than usual but not for long…I have some wonderful guest bloggers lined up for next month that I am super excited about. I will definitely have some exciting life events to blog about too!
So, the first bit of exciting news is…I’m moving! Not too far from where I am now, just a different part of the Dallas area. I am currently in the process of packing up my yarn (oh, and other important things like clothes…haha.) in boxes for the big move. It is all happening so fast but I couldn’t be happier! I can’t wait to share pictures of my new space. 
So this weekend I will be…
– Packing! 
– Shooting a few extra photos for my new blog design. Yeah, another exciting thing that is happening soon! The new website! Can’t wait to finally share it. 
– Working on DIY props for the final book photo shoots in a few weeks. 
– Prepping blog posts. 
– and….
…I am working on the final stages of my crochet pattern book! SO exciting. So crazy. Everything is coming together nicely I just need to remember to breathe and stay organized. I wish I could share more behind the scenes photos of the projects. When I snap a photo of something with my phone I want to share it right away but always decide against it just in case it reveals too much. I have to keep it all a secret for now! Fall 2014 seems so far away…
Kelly and I shot a few photos for the book early this week at a friend’s house. Their sweet dog Samson was so helpful all day. I wanted to take him home with me. :)

I also drove out to Ikea to pick out some furniture for my new apartment. I needed fuel before the long day of trekking through the aisles of that ginormous store, so I stopped at the cafe to try the Swedish pancakes for breakfast. The order came with the famous lingonberry jam and it was so tasty! However, the jam looks a little creepy in that photo, doesn’t it? Haha.

Anyway…it was a very busy week and it isn’t over yet! The next two months are going to be the craziest, most challenging months of my life. I am so excited and ready for change. I just need to remember the positive things when my stress levels get perilously close to the edge. Also, I am so thankful to have friends and family willing to help me move and just do whatever they can to help during this time. They are the best.

I hope you had a great week! Thank you in advance for all of your support. What are you up to this weekend?

  15. sessy says:

    oh, this is funny. I´m swedish and i have ever only heard of a few who eats lingonberry with their pancaces, and they´ve been thouroughly laughed at. Good thing it was good thought :)

  16. Wow so exciting! Good luck with the move and everthing, looking forward to finding out more about your book and new blog design :)

  17. Emily Violet says:

    I want you to know what an inspiration you have been to me. I am a young (13) blogger, knitter, and photographer, and I love reading all of your fantastic posts and looking at your beautiful photography. It amazes me how you always have great posts almost everyday, and it motivates me to manage my time and blog more often. I especially loved your little “Blogging for Confidence” series, because I am shy and afraid to show people that I blog and knit. Thank you for all the inspiration and wonderful posts!

    Also, can’t wait to see your new blog design! Good luck with the move!
