It's Complicated and also...Koi(!)

I am kind of all over the map today: please bear with my pre-moving self, for she is randomly grieving, celebrating, worrying and throwing caution to the wind at any given moment:
I do not claim responsibility for her written words!!

First order of business: the Leather Shop is receiving an update this afternoon: two new koi and a new customizable initial necklace!

The chain I used for the yellow Lucy koi? Thick and heavy and perfect, nickel-free cast brass, just the way I like it!

In the Soon to be Finished Long Term Projects folder is the Lovebirds Big Bag: do you remember this?

Well, it has become this!!!


And this!!! I love these two, and I love how they remind me to snuggle my Schmilly as often as possible.

I am really pulling to have this bag available before we move in the Leather Shop: it's going to be so joyous to behold: kelly green is the color of the soft leather that will make up part of the bag body.

It looks like spring!

Then there's the moving and the worrying and the stuff.

I am aching a bit over the changes that are upon us; watching your living space pile up with boxes has never done wonders for the psyche, methinks...

I will be taking a bunch of pieces out of the silver shop to put in some of my brick and mortar carrier stores, so if you love something, now would be the time to make it yours: quite a few pieces will be leaving.

That is really the general wash of my day. Today is day 18 in my yoga challenge, and I will be walking down the same lovely street
to do the same amazing poses
that have given me the one rock (besides the Anthony) that I am holding to in this time of upheaval.

Asanas.

Breath.

Focus.

Just writing those words is soothing.

Love to you all,
Allison

upheaval...change...challenge...as George Bernard Shaw once said,

"Life wasn't meant to be easy my child;but take courage: it can be delightful"!

Peace and love to you and Anthony as you embark upon this, yet another chapter in your journey together.

Lots of moving going on in the blogging community lately! My own long distance move is approaching very quickly. While there is still much to do, I can't wait until I am headed H O M E!!

If you get stressed just think of Umber and I packing too...and take a deep breath. Best wishes to you for a peaceful move.
