Last night my husband said to me, “you have logged a lot of miles in the last few weeks”. It made me stop and think about how much had happened in three short weeks. Here is the timeline:
Dec 20 -28 Roundtrip-Lake Gaston to Santa Monica, CA 5580 miles
Jan 4-6 Roundtrip-Lake Gaston to Baltimore, MD 698 miles
Jan 9-13 Roundtrip-Lake Gaston to Atlanta, GA 902 miles
The first trip was our holiday trip to visit our son’s home in Santa Monica. What a wonderful place to spend Christmas. There is no worry of snow to interfere with travel (except occasionally at a connecting airport). My daughter-in-law, Elif and I traveled with the top down in her Mini Cooper, named Coco, every outing for groceries and shopping! I love the casual yet sophisticated lifestyle of Southern California. Here is a picture of some of the highlights of our holiday. Love, love, love California succulent gardens!
The next trip came oh so quickly after we returned from Cali. Our good friends, Brenda and Quinn moved into a brand new house just north of Baltimore right before Christmas. They are still trying to get settled. The workers are still in and out. We traveled with our trailer full of furniture, accessories and window treatments to help give it the “moved-in” look. Here are just a few pictures of the fun color pallet Brenda selected. The colorful Company C furniture fits right in!
We are still recovering from our annual January Atlanta market trip. The above mileage does not include the miles and miles of market space we walked. There are about 7 million square feet of showroom space! It’s no wonder our feet hurt and everything aches after four-12 hour market days! There are so many things we fell in love with that will be arriving in our store over the next four months. Here is a picture of just a few of my favorites.
