The Sunday Night Digest = me + a possible glass of wine + reflection on the previous weeks ongoings and a glimpse into happenings next week. You're Welcome
There is no such thing as time or days in July. Just sun and sparklers and the water.

Happy Fourth Weekend Friends,
This summer sure does look and feel a bit different, but I don’t think Independence Day could ever truly be canceled while hamburgers and lakes and family and puppies and fireworks and flags and pies continue on as the fabric of america, even during a pandemic, a divided country and These uncertain times. I hope you and yours have had your fair share of all things sweet and sparkly this weekend. I sure have.
I certainly didn’t think a 3600 mile road trip was the first thing I would do post Covid lockdown, but alas, I am always being shown I cannot predict this thing called life no matter how much I try. Here’s a little post
on my adventures so far and some advice if you’re thinking about hitting the road this summer and beyond.

Luke Brenner has a collection of work
in the gallery right now worthy of any wall and best of all - you can pop in the shop in person or shop online or order and do curbside pick up or free delivery. Don’t miss these pieces as they’re already starting to find homes - I think you will see why!
And if you’re in full blown staycation mode, I’ve been putting together some of my favorites online and in the store to make everything feel fresh and summer from Turkish towels and bags to umbrellas, paint kits and puzzles. There’s a little slice of summertime heaven

Missing this five star spangled crew this weekend after so many years of celebrating Fourth together. Yet this weekend we have been able to find pure magic with another side of our family. I can’t stop kissing Michael under the fireworks and letting Sofia indulge in a few cheeseburger crumbs from the grill and god bless this United States of America, wishing for liberty, freedom and equality for all and a very Happy Fourth Weekend to you 💥🍔🇺🇸💙🌭⭐️
Happy weekend from our family to yours
Much love XO Kristen

New work online from me... with so many more coming this week!
Composed while listening to soft waves hit the shore and kids playing on a raft that's surely about to capsize. Time to jump in!
