Do you ever wonder what goes on between all these projects and DIY’s and stories?
Sometimes a lot of nothing and sometimes a lot of something….
…but there’s always something to share.
And a really great pair of earrings. 🙂
So here’s a little behind the scenes at Thistlewood of the week that was.
This was the week I stood outside under a Bradford Pear tree with a sky so blue my eyes hurt.
This was the week the cat stared at me……staring up at the blue sky.
I looked up.
Then he looked up to see what I was looking at.
Or he might have been looking up…..thinking about climbing up the tree and then thinking how funny it would be if I had to climb up and get him down.
This was the week I finished this project.
And the week I longed for summer cookouts and pink lemonade.
This was the week I wore these super cute shoes to Iowa.
And painted a dresser and met the BHG editors.
And the week that you cheered me on every super-cute-shoe step of the way.
This was the week that I tried to take a picture of my super-cute-shoes…..
…and my cat wanted his name in lights, too.
This was the week the forsythia bloomed.
This was the week the Wildcats made it almost all the way.
And this the week that this wonderful gift from my friend Andrea showed up on my doorstep to help me celebrate.
It’s a Kentucky silhouette painted on Kentucky barn wood.
If you are interested in your own silhouette….you can order them here.
And this is the week that I found this at Target in Iowa.
And I brought my Target treasure home and read it to my husband.
And told him I meant every word.
And this is the week that he sang me this.
This is the week that his eyes were extra twinkly and he sang me the song with the story behind it that still makes me smile.
(total aside: I have absolutely no idea what I’m doing with the i-phone video and I muted the first 20 seconds….it gets better….I promise)
Does a week get any better than that?
I hope your week is full of joy and sunshine and blue skies, too.
Happy day rock star.
