Busy week ahead!

21 May 2012

Hello, friends! Today I’m in New York on a work project. I flew into JFK yesterday, rented a car, drove it all around Manhattan picking up various packages (a hair-raising experience for this small town girl!), and then headed upstate. Once out of New Jersey, the drive couldn’t have been more beautiful! Up the side of one mountain then down the other, over and over. And in each valley, a diminutive town, reliably consisting of a church, a tree-lined main street, a few very enticing antique stores, and a restaurant or two. Farther up, the mix weighted more heavily to farmland, healthily dotted with cows. The only word for it was picturesque.

I’m glad I had that restful drive, because I’m in for a whirlwind week, y’all. Tomorrow I’ve got the big work project all day, then Tuesday and Wednesday I’ll be at the National Stationery Show. My week culminates with Marget’s long-awaited bridal shower on Saturday. I’m so excited to surprise her with all we’ve been planning! Here’s a little teaser of a project I was finished up this weekend:

Can’t wait to share!!

I hope you’re having a great trip, Em! I’m in awe of your driving skills – I’m not sure I could handle Manhattan!

Hope you had a great week and got to enjoy all our great weather up here in the north east this past week!

[…] friends! I am so happy to be back and writing to you! I survived my whirlwind week, and I did it by putting one foot in front of the other and concentrating only on the task in front […]
