Hello, hello, how was your week? It’s been exciting to get back in a good groove with work (and shoot with a real photographer again – safely, outside). The biggest news is that I had a call with Amazon and will be moving forward with a second collection this Fall. Based on the success of this past one, we’ll order more fabric to make MORE! Fall nightgowns are COMING!
Anyway, I am really, really looking forward to a chill weekend. (Do I say that every weekend? I do. Sorry.) It’s always the same over here (read, hang on the patio, make sun tea, putter around my “garden” with my plants, etc etc) but last night I went to a RESTAURANT with two of my friends (outside, socially distanced!). That was just the best thing ever. I am planning to watch some movies. Thank you so much to everyone who chimed in on this post about favorite romantic comedies. You inspired me and I feel like I will be referencing the comments quite a bit in the future. (I’d totally forgotten about Crazy Stupid Love, for example!)
