Hello, from Los Angeles! We’re here for a quick wedding weekend trip, and the weather is currently AMAZING. Sometimes I wonder why I don’t live here, but then I remember that I’m not cut out for the 24/7 hustle and bustle. I also don’t think I could handle being even further from all of my East coast family. Maybe someday!
We don’t have too many plans for our trip here since we head back Sunday, but I think we may make a trip to Malibu for the first time since we’re staying in Santa Monica this go around. Any recommendations for that?! You can follow along on our weekend via IG stories!
I also wanted to take a moment to thank you all SO much for those that signed up to sponsor a family, donated items, and/or volunteered at the drive last week. The silver lining of all of the Harvey storm was seeing the good still left in people. I’m so glad we’re able to use this platform to create waves of change, not just pretty things, and we’re able to do that because of your support.
For those of you that signed up to sponsor a family, you’ll be getting emails from us with your family match this week, so keep an eye out!
Lastly, I haven’t forgotten about sharing our house and studio renovation updates with you! We obviously got a bit behind after last week, and are crossing our fingers that construction will continue as usual despite the excess working needing done in Houston now. The photo above is a sneak peek of how the living room layout is coming along so far though!
We’re using the same construction team for the studio as we are the house, so, unfortunately, every setback we get for the studio causes a set back for the house. Adulting, am I right?!
