Behind the Scenes || No. 05

Back to school, back to prove to Dad I'm not a fool. Sorry, I can't say or hear the words 'back to school' without referencing Billy Madison! Blake started her third and final year of Pre-K and is super excited to finally be a member of the 'Super Stars'. She is becoming such a big girl and a great helper in the kitchen.

We've been busy getting ready for our first art show this Fall, Crafty Bastards in DC. Go big, or go home - it happens to be a two-day show that is one of the biggest on the east coast. Spoiler, it went very well - more on that in a future post! How awesome is that custom counter that Greg built for our booth? And I DIY'ed my booth signage with help from a fabric transfer from Lumi - check them out for all your custom branding needs.

We took a mini, road-tripping vacation to Savannah, GA a few weeks ago. We were somewhat dreading the 9-hour car ride with two little ones but they did great and I made a lot of necklaces in the car! We traveled to spend time with family and celebrate my cousin's wedding but were able to play tourists with two littles in tow as well. 

We are so lucky that my family owns an awesome bar/restaurant in the heart of the historic district - The Distillery Ale House - a great family friendly establishment with awesome food and drink. We stayed in a lovely 2-BR garden apartment complete with a brick courtyard on Pulaski Square, very close to The Distillery. I can't recommend this place more if you ever find yourself in Savannah with kids! 

We loved the Georgia State Railroad Museum and were lucky enough to visit on a day when they were offering rides on a steam locomotive that was built in 1913. Watching the turntable was a treat too - just like on Chuggington!

Other highlights of our trip included shopping at The Paris Market, Prospector Co., and Shop SCAD; eating ice cream at Leopold's, grabbing coffee around the corner from our apt., and visiting the playgrounds at Forsyth Park - which also happened to be the beautiful location for my cousin's wedding.
