At the Moment:
I’ve spent the last 4 weeks re-training myself to stop working in the evenings and on weekends, and to practice self-care
every day most days. We’ve been cooking real food, I’m running nearly every day, spending more time with the fam & friends and *gasp* just trying to do LESS. It’s been wonderful, and I feel better than I have in ages and I’m really going to try to carry this through the whole year.
I also was proud to walk in the Women’s March in Detroit with my daughter. That day was a powerful and inspirational day for me, and I hope it was for you, too. Love & gratitude to everyone who marched, and to those who supported it in their own ways if you couldn’t!
Della started ballet (it’s completely adorable) and Roy is like seriously reading. I mean, really reading! Books and signs and comics and I can’t hardly believe it. How’d they get so grown up already?
Reware Vintage had a great first month of 2017. Big thanks to everyone who filled out the survey I posted earlier this month – I’ve been planning out 2017 and the answers from you all really helped me focus! There’s some great new stuff in the works, and I’m really excited to carry out all these ideas and plans.
I took a couple weeks away from making anything, but then I missed crafting way too much, so I spent a week making dozens of new record earrings – including a new style! They’ll be on the site soon.
This might be the most variety in a month yet: Visqueen, Taylor Dayne, Iggy Pop, Chook Race, The Trainspotting Soundtrack, The Vaselines, Fugazi, Jodi Whatley, Van Morrison, Bruce Springsteen, Patti Smith, Human Waste Project, Toad the Wet Sprocket, ZZ Top, Leonard Cohen, Robyn, and all the news podcasts I can listen to.
Della’s fav song of the month: “How Far I’ll Go” from the Moana Soundtrack – OMG, it’s a “kids’ song”! She’s been positively obsessed with Moana – we saw it twice – and that song has been on heavy rotation ever since.
