Notice anything different about the blog? Yes! After so so so much time The House That Lars Built has a new look! Hooray! Cue the bells! I’ll be giving you tour of it all next week, but thought I’d mention the elephant in the room. There were a few hiccups getting it set and I had to add in a lot of posts that didn’t seem to make it in with the transfer, but we’re all set now and I can’t wait to give you the full debut.
In the mean time…want to hear a tragic story? I’m supposed to be in Paris right now. Yup, you heard that right, Paris, FRANCE. Grange Furniture and Kimberly Lewis Home were kind enough to fly me out for Maison et Objet, Europe’s version of the NY Gift fair, and I was beyond stoked. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for years. Well, last night I was waiting for my flight. In fact, we were getting ready to board, when they announced a small delay. “No worries, I thought.” But as I sat there, I stated to feel terrible. I hadn’t been feeling 100% in a few days but all of a sudden it was miserable. The slight delay turned into an hour and then I realized that making it across the Atlantic sounded like the worst idea. Do I dare infect others with whatever it is I have? Will this turn into the worse trip of all time? I mean, it’s Paris, but it could be awful if I’m just stuck in a hotel room in Paris.
So, I decided I had to go home.
I know! It’s the most tragic story and I can’t, myself, bear the thought of thinking of what I’m missing out on. Please tell me you’ll still be around Paris? I was so looking forward to meeting up with friends and new friends. Boo hoo hoo.
In the mean time, I spent today, still in my jammies, updating my new site. :/
Above, this pic is from earlier this week when my sister and her husband were in town. We took a trip to the nearest lake and decided to go “ice skating” which was basically me petrified 4 feet from land. The boys were a little more daring than us.
Have you ever missed out on something awesome because you felt horrible? Tell me your tragedies and let’s commiserate together!
