you know that feeling. the feeling of stepping foot back on your place, in your home after a long weekend of traveling.
it feels so good.
i left a hot mess & a tense ball of stress before thanksgiving. i came back
ghandi (kidding) better - a little more relaxed & energized to check off that to do list.
y'all, let's stop the small talk.
i hired a housekeeper because i haven't really dusted in a year & i can't do all the things.
my people, she comes today.
i feel like christmas is coming 24 days early. bless.
in other news, my gertrude made dress came in the mail! (!!!)
when i put on this dress, i feel like i could totally hang with the little house on the prairie gang.
"oh hey, i'm natalie. a real farm girl."
cathi, the maker behind gertrude made, & i became dear friends through the process of making my dress. i picked out my fabric & told her all of my insecurities. example: can i please have bigger arm holes because my arms are huge?! (from lifting heavy weights, of course.)
she was there for it all. she's my dress making fairy god friend.
& she just brought #dressinhappinessdaily to a whole new level.
sidenote: if you have a bigger chest & feel self-conscious/can't find a dress that fits, cathi is your girl. y'all, i feel completely comfortable & covered in this dress. it's a christmas miracle!
she is opening up her shop this thursday at 2pm (western australia time) with a ton of beautifully handmade dresses. check them out & ask santa for one of these beauties. add a bit of handmade happy to your wardrobe!
wishing you all the happiest monday, my dear friends.
may you drink copious amounts of coffee, snack on leftover thanksgiving goodies & celebrate the first day of december with a full heart!
p.s. high five to my hubby for the farm girl model pictures!
