life lately {beginning to settle into VA}

Holy Batman, how is it the middle of September?? It was will Thanksgiving before we know it. Yesterday was the 100 day count down until Christmas, wowza! 

Last week was a bit quiet around these parts. We arrived in VA late at night Saturday the 8th. We found and rented a house by Tuesday the 11th! CRAZINESS!!

{our new house}

We will be going on week two of living in an empty house. But it is a gorgeous, huge, historical home so I cannot complain too much. 

Life is starting to get a bit crazy and the fun of summer and laid by life of hotel living is a thing of the past. 

{our entry way}

Since I will soon be unpacking all of our earthly belongings, make our house a home, growing navy wives unite and looking for work things around here are going to change a bit. It was quite nice to not be worrying about posts this last week. Therefore I think i am going to limit my posts to M/W/F, unless of course I feel like posting extra. I need and like routine. These are the days I usually write a post and know what I want to talk about.

I am also trying to decide what to do with the shop. It is has been such a great tool to learn about running my own business but I am not sure what it will look like in the future. It is a lot of work and the handmade world is kinda tricky. I feel like I am constantly trying to come up with something new and better. I am creative but not as artsy and creative as so many other shop owners. I also feel like the moment I think of something I haven't seen before I see it done by someone else and thus I am back at the drawing board. I don't know what to do, but for now the shop will remain open.
