This post is random but there are a couple things I have to share with you.
First I am sad to report that this month is my last month with our booth in Slate Interiors. Ending my time with the booth was not something I wanted to do but the simple fact is I don't have the time for it anymore :( It took a lot of time and energy finding the perfect pieces for the booth and then rehab-ing them. I've been blessed with a handful of new clients and something had to give.. I had too much on my plate. It's a good problem to have, but I'm so bummed to no longer have a booth. Amanda (my booth partner) is also retiring from the booth, but if you ever need pillows sewn she is amazing! Email me and I'll forward it on to her.
I still have a passion to find and share amazing pieces, so I'll be putting my "shop" blog back up now that I no longer have a booth. More on that later.
This week I'll be "slashing prices" to sell all my inventory at Slate so if you live in Charlotte be sure to check it out!
In other news, Today I was featured on Chassity's amazing blog Look Linger Love with a baby boy nursery I designed for her nursery series.

And I would like to address the 9/11 10 year anniversary. Yesterday was quite a deep day for me (as it was for the rest of the country). I'm still in a bit of a funk. I spent almost all of yesterday (and a little bit of this morning) watching the coverage of the 9/11 memorial and also the coverage from that day. I probably shouldn't have, but I also went onto You Tube and watched things I had never watched before... the people falling from the buildings, the phone calls from people trapped, the phone calls from people on the planes.
Ten years ago I was 17 years old in high school and deciding which college I should go to was more real to me than what had happened. Of course I, like the entire country, was stunned and devastated as we watched the news and the events unfold, but it was different yesterday when I watched everything (a lot of it for the first time). But ten years later as I watched everything it was like I really saw it all for the first time.. I think because now I am an adult with a husband and starting to think about a family of our own. It really didn't hit me until yesterday the depth of the event.
And I know it's not just me... everyone of you reading this (especially us Americans) probably feel the same way. We'll never understand, but as they say we'll never forget.
