I hope you are enjoying a nice big hot cup of coffee on this gloomy June day.
We are spending the weekend in Temecula to celebrate my girlfriend’s birthday. Temecula has lots of wineries and is known for its hot-air balloon festivals.
Exciting news – we’re treating ourselves to a massage! I can’t wait.
I will tell you more about the weekend next week.
How was your long weekend? Mine was great, and I enjoyed some downtime, but I feel like I missed a day this week. There are never enough hours in the day or days in the week for me.
I started my week helping my sweet aesthetician hang these darling flowers in her new location.
I love getting my monthly facials from Kathleen. It is the one treat I always give myself. It is so relaxing and just feels so good.
If you have never had a great facial, I highly recommend it. If you happen to live near Pasadena, CA. Message me and I will give you her number. She is the BEST!
We have two Springer Spaniels. Mollie is the brown and white one, and Murphy is the black and white one.
And these stinkers love my white couch!
So, I finally broke down and bought one of those stretch covers to protect it. We will see how long this lasts……..
And Miss Mollie has decided she is going to take over my spot in the bed now too, UGH.
We are such weak dog parents…. how do you keep them off the furniture?
I mean, look at that face. How could I say NO!
What’s Happening at WM Design House
Every morning, my visit to the cut flower garden is the highlight of my day. It is amazing what can happen in a garden in 24 hours. The morning glory grows about 6″ a day, I wonder if I had the patience to sit there if I could actually see them grow.
My first Limelight Zinnia bloomed today! Isn’t she a beauty?
And the Ranunculus are so pretty with all of their pink petals.
This middle picture was my lunch the other day and these snap peas were so sweet, I ate the entire bowlful.
The foxglove garden is also in full bloom with its spikes of purple blossoms. I love how these flowers come back year after year.
What Happened This Past Week
I shared one very long post this week, it was full of every detail you need to know for throwing a dinner party. And there was a gift in there for you!
I have a new FREE printable library. This is a library full of graphics I design and share with all of my subscribers. This week I launched a new program called “Dinner Party Printables” I design the table decorations and provide all of the free printables to you. This way you can re-create the table. I will do this four times a year.
