Just a Note…

Hello and happy Friday to you dear friends! I hope that you have enjoyed your week visiting decor8 as I’ve been busy traveling and blogging from the road although some of my posts I wrote a little in advance so I also cheated a bit. :)  I started off in Belgium on Monday, ended up in Amsterdam on Tuesday and Wednesday and wrapped up in London and now I’m home — there is no place like home!

It was a whirlwind week but I’m happy to report that all of the homes for the book project I’m working on have been shot so I no longer have to hop on planes and trains — which is one part sad and another part great since traveling so often can be a bit difficult when you are trying to run your own business, can’t it? But I’ve managed to do it all with the help of my husband and friends, so now I can spend more time on decor8 again, my first love, as I finish up some of the text in the book and it gets sent on it’s merry little way to the powers that be who are in charge of designing it and making it sparkle.

So! I’m home now after my journey — my shoes have been kicked off, I’ve unpacked, and I’m chillin’ and happy to be here. I missed my husband quite a lot but being away with time to think at night is often a good thing as I have had a lot in my mind to sort out and often that sorting is best to do alone with lots of quiet time. As a result, I arrived home last night feeling like I had a very good sense of direction and that my compass had been reset a tiny bit which is a good thing as I was starting to veer off course in a few personal areas in my life. It’s nice to feel back on track emotionally. And how about you? Are you well? I will be back in a moment to share a lovely space with you from another blogger so stay tuned…

In the meantime, you may read about Jennifer Causey over at Real Simple today — where these two lovely photos came from above.

    welcome home!!! i love being able to travel whenever i like now that i’m my own boss, however there’s nobody to take care of business while i’m gone and i tend to be swamped when i get home. i guess that’s the trade off huh?

    It sounds like you had an amazing adventury Holly! Isn’t in interesting how a whirlwind trip like that can actually help you reset yourself and refocus? I feel the same after our big east coast tour. It made me realize that I need to make some changes, and I think my life will be better for it. Have a wonderful weekend!

    Holly, I love that you referred to your inner compass. That is the best way that I have found to describe my path- day to day, week to week, moment to moment. There’s nothing better than when our compass is back on track. And nothing like lots of quiet time to make that happen. Have a lovely weekend with your husband… @ HOME, where the heart is.

    Love the shoes above – thought they might be from your travels until I read on. Blogging on the road sounds fun but after my first experience of that last month I found it was a little stressful and hard to keep up. Doing some posts in advanced is definitely the way to go.
    Have a great weekend.
