How has your summer been? My summer has been all about moving studios. I usually think about the summer as this ‘in between’ time where everything is more relaxed and things just coast for a little while. You take more time out to enjoy the sunshine and do all the fun summer things that you miss the rest of the year. And, while I have still been doing my best to enjoy the sunshine, it’s been way busier than my normal summer coasting- full of big changes and new challenges- it feels much more like fall that way.
If you haven’t been following for a while- you might not know the two big things- first (and by far the biggest) is that I’m moving my studio to a new spot- which I couldn’t be happier about! The second is that I’ve launched a YouTube Channel- and posted my first video – a vlog about moving- so you can see some behind the scenes of the move! Both of these changes are so new for me and come with challenges- but honestly I feel like I’ve just swung open a door that has a million more opportunities on the other side! If you haven’t seen that video yet- it’s a great way to get up to speed with this moving process (and I’ll be coming out with a part 2 of that vlog soon!). You can watch that here 🙂
And now on to the rest of the bra news!
