99% of the time blogging is a solitary activity. Well, for this blogger it is. Which can be lonely.
But it’s all worth it for the 1%. Because the glorious, amazing, inspirational, pinch-myself-is-this-really-happening-to-me 1% wipes away that solitude. And loneliness.
This past week was all about the 1% …
and it was amazing!
And can I just say how amazingly gorgeous — and inspirational — Amy Howard’s home was? It’s her pied-à-terre as her new home in the country is being built. And it’s gorgeous. Do you see that collage up there? Yep. All rooms in her house …
and all rooms pulled together with amazing furniture pieces she has personally rescued and beautifully restored.
(P.S. All those photos were taken by my fellow Ace bloggers and posted on their Instagram accounts. I recommend you follow them all!).
And then there was the amazing inspirational Amy Howard workshop we attended. Taught by Amy herself. Where I learned painting techniques that I thought were well beyond my reach …
It was whirlwind.
It was inspirational.
And it was fun to get to know my fellow Ace bloggers better. We shared tips. We shared stories. And I left Memphis feeling truly inspired …
and a little less alone in this blogging world.
Now for some inspirational links for you this weekend, I encourage you to check out my Ace blogger buddies …
