Food, Story, Updates

Honey, I’m back Home.

Happy New Year! Ok, I’m a little late, but for me… I feel like my new year is just beginning. At the start of 2022, I boarded a plane to London to spend three magical weeks with my best friend, her husband, and her pup. Not only did I have the luxury of exploring the land of Harry Potter and the endless history of London and Oxford, but also was able to hop on over to the sensational cities of Madrid and Barcelona.

From eating octopus at the San Miguel Market in Madrid to the gastronomic pilgrimage across the pubs and shops of London, my mind, and waistline, were blown. The architecture, museums, and cathedrals that I was able to explore were just a sliver of what each city had to offer. I took hundreds of pictures, these are only a fraction of what I’ve decided to share.

The trip was nothing short of amazing. I can’t even begin to verbalize it all in a short blog post. The time away gave me a different perspective and a chance to reflect on my life. I was able to really meditate and think about the things I want to pursue and bring to each aspect of my life from my business, music, art, farming, friends, and family. I’m grateful to have had this opportunity and am looking forward to channeling the energy from this trip into this year. 

All this to say, I have some exciting updates for all things made by Laura Lee from music, new items in the store, and canned good happenings! So stay tuned over these next couple of weeks as I am excited to share them with you!

That Day for the Mothers & Mamas

Yea, so I have been a little quiet on the blog again. I have to say there has been no shortage of excitement here on my end! I’m completely in love with my latest and greatest venture of managing Paisley Farm and Greenhouses and all the excitement that that entails especially now that spring is upon us. On top of that, I’ve had the chance to sit down with Northshore Magazine for a lovely chat and interview as well as the craziness of getting ready for Mother’s Day!

That’s right, the day for celebrating Mama’s and all those Mama-like is getting closer. Of course, I’ve got the 2021 “I Love You, Mom” Towel ready to go in the shop and I’ve even got the Happy Mother’s Day Card to match. I highly recommend getting your orders in by May 1st to ensure arrival by Mother’s Day as the post office has been a little slower than normal lately. I’ve also got a few other new items listed in the shop as well, so feel free to browse and add to your cart. (wink, wink)

Longing for Normalcy

I don’t know about y’all, but I think we’re all getting a little stir-crazy. The Pandemic has been tough on all of us and, unfortunately, it’s not quite over with yet. Although, I am very excited to announce I got my first vaccine dose this week. While I sat post shot, I day dreamed of all of the things I’ve been longing to do. Most of which consist of having a glass of wine on a patio and… traveling.

I wasn’t exactly a jet-setter before the Pandemic, but not having the ability to hop on a plane when I want sure does make the itch to travel a little itchier. I’ve always wanted to go to Italy. I’m hoping in the next few years that could be a possibility, but until then stitching up some destination pillows is the best I can do.

For those of you that can think back to what feels like 500 years ago to November, I hosted a little custom order sale. Well, I sure had a lot of pillows to stitch over the holidays. Some of which I cannot share due to personal information being stitched on them, but this little, lovely London piece came out great. Simple, sleek, and looks great on a plush leather couch.

Again, while I won’t be able to travel anytime soon, stitching in my free time allows me an escape. One I’m very grateful for. I hope you are doing well, staying in good health, and taking time to take care of your mental health.
