Friday Perspective - Dreams

12:03 PM

It's finally Friday! This morning I didn't know what my mood would be, because I haven't been getting to bed early (I tried last night, and well - did get to be at 11:30 but then didn't actually try to sleep until 11:54!) and now have a sick baby co-sleeping next to me, so suffice to say, I haven't had any quality sleep (a measly 54%!)). Plus, last night I had this really strange dream (which must mean that last night I did get some quality sleep, right? or deep sleep? anyway..) that had these tight & upsetting feelings carry over into reality. Jax wasn't cooperating with me to get his clothes on fast enough since it turned out that I was the one who was going to be driving him to school (yes, I say school instead of daycare because really - he's learning there) and not Charlie and time was ticking away...

I had to remind myself to slow down, enjoy..hey, I get to spend time with my kiddo - one on one like I said, even though it will be for a short minute, but it's better than nothing at all. He sang, I listened (and now his song is stuck in my head, and I don't even know any of the words!). He asked me questions, I answered as best I could (you don't like the freeway mommy? Why?...Why?). He asked me to pick him up and gave me extra hugs and kisses, and even though I was somewhat late to work, it was all worth it. 

Just that little time with Jax totally changed my outlook on what the day could is good and then I get to work, and no one's there but me (yay!). I proceeded to check my inbox and saw that I had new comments (woot! thank you guys!). Getting those emails really brightens up my day. For reals. Then I scrolled down (I really need to clean my inbox!) and received an opportunity to become an affiliate for the clothing company, Shabby Apple! I was very surprised (and flattered) that they reached out to me! But you can also sign up to become an affiliate by going here.

Have you guys seen their stuff? I am in love with their retro style clothing, but am especially loving and inspired by their program for emerging designers. It has always been a (yet another) dream of mine to have my own clothing line. I went (back) to school to study pattern making & fashion design at Apparel Arts Academy in SF. It was an amazing, hands-on experience (and took me a long time to accomplish). If you've ever wanted to make clothes and are located in the Bay area, I'd suggest checking them out (I completed the program in 2003, I think). They offer intensive seminars, day and evening classes to suit most schedules. Anyway, I hope to one day, enter some of my designs to the thing at a time though first..I still have those clutches and or tote bags to make!
