weekend+notes | 6.4.23

It has been really busy lately preparing for an unexpected adventure that materialized just a few weeks ago leading to this weekend's notes to arrive in your inbox a little late...

When I decided to change business directions back in February, I completely jumped into exploring further expansion of this website by integrating extra details, digging deeper into designing pages, working on adding more writing pieces and developing an online marketplace + taking on delayed home projects, improving photography skills and occasionally tagging along with my husband on his endless global business travel.

Most of those items have been steadily checking off the list - with the exception of fully launching the online shop and tackling some of the home projects - when an incredible moment happened...

It is with much delight to share that I have been invited to join the talented and incredibly sweet team at The Old Lucketts Store and officially opened the shop this past Saturday. It has been a flurry of intense activity and anticipation cultivating inventory + pricing merchandise initially set aside for the online marketplace in addition to planning out the space at the store - and it all has been a thrilling, surreal and fulfilling experience... I cannot thank everyone involved enough for this extraordinary opportunity.

To surprising detours, a fresh chapter + renewed discoveries.

Have a wonderful start of the week!
