Happy Thursday, party people! It’s a frigid 52 here in south Louisiana and my toes are numb. I tell ya, in many ways my personality is better suited to living up north but my body just could not handle the cold. I’d be happy if it stayed above 70 all year.
I’ve only got one sponsor this month–the ever entrancing Little Eli. I love the juxtaposition of delicate jewelry and chunky concrete in one adorable shop. Amelia actually gifted me some of her orange mint soaps recently and they smell divine. I have one on my kitchen sink and one in the upstairs bath and they are just perfect. I plan on having a few on hand this Christmas to give as gifts. When she dropped off the soaps she mentioned that she’s working on a food-safe glaze for her concrete, so expect to see some tableware in the near future (and cat dishes! Amelia is a bonafide cat lady in the making, and I mean that as a compliment). And for you local folks, Amelia and Meghan will be at North Gate Fest on November 8th. There will be food, art, music, and entertainment from 4-11pm so go check it out. Nick and I may even bring Jack out there for an hour or two!
In other news, there’s a new blog geared toward local moms that I’m excited to be a part of. Red Stick Moms Blog is all about connecting, informing, and honoring local moms in an inclusive and positive way. No snark or mommy wars here! I’ll be posting as a contributor once or twice a month and also participating in their real-life events whenever possible. My friend Cassie and I brought our babies out to their launch party at Perkins Road Community Park yesterday–there were free POPculture popsicles, temporary tattoos, and some other stuff I didn’t notice because my toddler was having a meltdown over dropping his delicious popsicle, haha. I left covered in melted popsicle but happy to have made some new friends.
I hope y’all are having a great week! I’m looking forward to the 81 and sunny we’re supposed to see this afternoon! Thanks for reading!
