Hat- Borrowed from a Friend
Dress- made by me, du ciel designs
boots- Ariat Paddock boots
Yesterday marked the official end of "summer vacation", for most. I however, will finally get my vacation. After work today, I have 9 days off. GASP! Have I ever had 9 days off in a row- when not caused by serious injury?! In addition, I was just given Sunday's off too! I have always longed to have Sunday's off. All I want is to be leisurely- drink tea, read the Sunday Times and perhaps watch some netflix. Oh what glorious times are ahead. As for these 9 days off- I have decided that 6 days will be work days and 3 days will be Love days. Although I will fully appreciate the company of my man on all 9 days, I would like to act as though I am "at the office" for 8 hours a day. As for yesterday, the "last day of summer vacation", I did my rounds of seeing the ones I loved. For breakfast I spent time with my Father, his GF- Billie, my big brother Tyler, and his Fiancée Erin- I had chocolate pancakes and icecream- oh boy... afterwards I spent a bit of time with my mother, who graciously took these photos. This is one of the dress styles that will be for sale as of next week- once I accomplish the list below... and then I ended the evening with E and a group of his friends. They prepared an amazing BBQ at the farm. All in all, it was a great day and a fabulous way to say- So Long, Farewell, adieu! to Summer.
Here are the "handful" of things for du ciel designs that I hope to accomplish during this time off.
EXCITING THINGS TO TACKLE!
1- Get Cloth labels
