So, this is me posting the weekend notes on a Monday morning. My world has really been turned upside down, to say the least. The past week (including the weekend) has been a whirlwind of moving, working, working some more, tidying up the post-moving mess (no big success on that front, I'm afraid), and then working again. Our clients have gone completely nuts, deadlines have been accumulating, and yesterday, as I was working away my Sunday afternoon, I was looking longingly out the window, trying very hard not to feel resentful.

I had to remind myself that without this business that sometimes captures all my waking hours, I would never have been able to buy and renovate an apartment all by myself. I may complain sometimes about the stress and craziness that come with running a small business, but the truth is, I am nothing butt grateful for being able to do what I love and what fulfills me every single day, to help build something that's far bigger than just me, and to never wake up on a Monday morning with that feeling of time-to-go-to-work-again dread.

Sometimes, a tiny shift in perspective is all I need to really appreciate how fortunate I am. I wish you all a wonderful week filled with sunshine and positive vibes, and I'm leaving you with my favorite reads from the previous week. Happy Monday!

Weekend list: I'm moving!

Guys, I only have one thing on my list this weekend. I'll be packing my little life into bags & boxes, and moving everything to my new apartment. I could hardly be more excited! It feels like such a surreal thing, that something I've been dreaming about and working on for such a long time, is finally about to happen! Althought still not quite finished (progress, not perfection, right?), that little place of mine feels like a dream come true. For the past few months I've poured all my time, energy, and yes, all my money, into turning an old and drab flat into something new and elegant that I could call "home". And seeing my vision progressively come to life is one of the best feelings I've ever had! Honestly, just writing about it makes me a little bit emotional.

So the upcoming weekend will be spent first packing than unpacking, cleaning, organizing and tidying up. And hopefully, once everything including me is settled down, I'll be able to pop a bottle of bubbly and savor the moment to its fullest.

PS: New apartment also means no wifi, which, unfortunately means, no time to post & comment. I'm working hard on having it sorted. Until then, have a fantastic and successful week!

Eye candy: French-inspired wedding details

Images via Style me Pretty

It seems that each time I make a wish to start blogging more again, all our clients seem to go beserk and start pushing for something that could only be called deadly deadlines. I'll be spending my day putting out fires left and right. I'll at least leave you with a serious bout of eye candy - this wonderful French-inspired wedding is stuff dreams are made of, Oddly enough, it doesn't have me dreaming of wedding gowns and bouquets (no, thanks), but of adding a little more French flair to my apartment. Lavender plants for my windowsills, perhaps?

Have a lovely hump day!
