Happy Thursday, party people! Itâ€™s a frigid 52 here in south Louisiana and my toes are numb. I tell ya, in many ways my personality is better suited to living up north but my body just could not handle the cold. Iâ€™d be happy if it stayed above 70 all year.
Iâ€™ve only got one sponsor this month-the ever entrancing Little Eli. I love the juxtaposition of delicate jewelry and chunky concrete in one adorable shop. Amelia actually gifted me some of her orange mint soaps recently and they smell divine. I have one on my kitchen sink and one in the upstairs bath and they are just perfect. I plan on having a few on hand this Christmas to give as gifts. When she dropped off the soaps she mentioned that sheâ€™s working on a food-safe glaze for her concrete, so expect to see some tableware in the near future (and cat dishes! Amelia is a bonafide cat lady in the making, and I mean that as a compliment). And for you local folks, Amelia and Meghan will be at North Gate Fest on November 8th. There will be food, art, music, and entertainment from 4-11pm so go check it out. Nick and I may even bring Jack out there for an hour or two!
In other news, thereâ€™s a new blog geared toward local moms that Iâ€™m excited to be a part of. Red Stick Moms Blog is all about connecting, informing, and honoring local moms in an inclusive and positive way. No snark or mommy wars here! Iâ€™ll be posting as a contributor once or twice a month and also participating in their real-life events whenever possible. My friend Cassie and I brought our babies out to their launch party atÂ Perkins Road Community Park yesterday-there were free POPculture popsicles, temporary tattoos, and some other stuff I didnâ€™t notice because my toddler was having a meltdown over dropping his delicious popsicle, haha. I left covered in melted popsicle but happy to have made some new friends.
I hope yâ€™all are having a great week! Iâ€™m looking forward to the 81 and sunny weâ€™re supposed to see this afternoon! Thanks for reading!
Charlotte, totally off topic, but if your toes get cold, seriously consider insulating under the floors. I cannot believe the toesies pain I suffered for SO LONG when the fix was so easy. (And not that expensive either) I am totally with you on the weather front - although I love these beautiful autumn days. I just HATE cold feet, and I swear my feel were never warm when I lived in Maine. (Or, for that matter, before I insulated the floors.)
Iâ€™m so glad to hear you say that! Weâ€™ve considered insulating the floors because our house really stays pretty cool all winter, but weâ€™ve been told that it can be more trouble than itâ€™s worth. Sounds like it might be something to look into again!
