Sunday is Market Day

Thank you to everyone for your thoughts, prayers and well wishes! I go back this tuesday for a biopsy, I am nervous about the procedure, but optimistic that it will be ok. So this morning I woke up super early and went to the Lambertville market with 2 of my lovely girlfriends, Michele and Michele :) I have been going to the market every other weekend for most of the winter. I just discovered it last summer, so I have been hooked. This morning it was AWESOME! Packed with people and treasures! I am looking forward to an awesome summer of shopping! I have a theory that there are certain "days" as I call them, some are "button" days, "lace" days, etc... today, was a bit of both. Within the first 5 minutes I found a lovely bowl of all white buttons, alot of shell. Then it just got better from there. The best part of the day was spending time with my friends, not thinking about the biopsy and just enjoying living in the moment. I wanted to share some of these fun finds with you, there's even a bag of vintage fabric scraps that Michele spotted! Can't wait to spend more Sunday mornings out shopping with you ladies! Even Bella, got a new apron!

The Silent Witness

I have not been to present on my blog lately. I hit a bit of a speed bump. During a routine checkup my doctor found a strange blue dot in my eye. He recommended having the eye doctor check it out. So during my yearly eye check up I mentioned it to the optometrist. He was a bit perplexed by it, so he sent me to an opthomologist. After several yucky tests that included those ucky drops that numb your eye~ a totally strange, surreal feeling~ he stated that he thinks it may be a tumor. So tomorrow I am off to the city to see an Ocular Oncologist. Scary right? You just never know what life is going to throw your way. I keep thinking about my yoga teacher training and how my teacher taught us about the "silent witness", a part of your soul that is always observing. Removed from what is happening, just watching and hopefully learning. The epitome of "non-attachment". I'm not sure if we learned about this so we could try to step out of the situation and observe how we are reacting to it and take the life lesson. I know I keep thinking about warrior pose and how the strength that you feel while in that pose is something to tap into during difficult situations. I feel strong in warrior, I will be strong tomorrow. Keeping the thought in my heart that we will go to the appointment, she will look in my eye, say "it's nothing, come back in a year for a check-up" and hubby and I will have a nice lunch on South Street.

Time For Reflection

Hello dear friends. I have been quiet as of late. Quietly reflecting, observing, oh and working my butt off back at bootcamp. Back to getting up at 5:30am and feeling tired, but great. So no more late nights up staring at the glow of the monitor. The serial Etsy shopper is taking a break this week~ although I did purchase one rockin, awesome, vintage pink and white samsonite suitcase. I have been working on my spring line, in *love* with organic cotton. I cannot get enough of the stuff, it is so soft and yummy to work with. I am hoping to make it to the market tommorrow, weather is quite beautiful here this weekend and perhaps there will actually be some people selling!!! Congrats to Sara from Lushmommy for winning my giveaway!

Until next time,
