Things are really on an upward swing here in Northern California. I’ve got so much to be grateful for this week I’m just going to jump right into it.
1. Freelancing is a constant roller coaster of work, but I’m definitely at a high point right now. I started a new, regular styling job this week and things could not be going better. Not only are the people at this new company Great to work with, but I feel like I have something to offer that will truly enhance their business for years to come. The entire week has been a creative, collaborative fun fest for me and I could not be happier. On top of that, my phone has been ringing off the hook for other freelance work. Looking forward to collaborating with more great brands in the near future.
2. This might sound dumb, but I am so grateful to have heat in our bathroom this week. At our old house in San Diego, there were no heating vents in our bathroom, so it was really cold getting out of the shower when the morning temps dipped below 50. It’s been very cold in the mornings here and I brace myself for a chill after every shower, and am pleasantly surprised when it doesn’t come.
3. My friend and former neighbor stopped by on her way to Truckee this week with her two dogs. It was so Great to catch up with her and see the doggie best friends reunited. There’s more fun to come, because we’re heading out to Truckee ourselves this weekend to show the dogs snow for the first time. Definitely follow along with me on Snapchat @betsylife to see all their antics. It should be pretty hilarious. Beyond spending time with some good friends both 2 and 4 legged, I’m looking forward to being in the woods and just relaxing for a couple days.
4. My pantry finally arrived this week! Besides our master bedroom closet, which is still a disaster zone, the pantry was the last major missing piece to my total home unpacking and organizing puzzle. There are officially ZERO unpacked boxes inside of our house (the garage is a different story), so everything is falling into place at exactly the right time for me to start working and living normally. I still have stuff to organize, but I’m hoping to bring you a total home tour within the next month or so. Stay tuned!
So yeah, it’s been a pretty Great week overall. Hoping this trend continues! Have an awesome weekend everyone.
