Star Sequin Cami (my newest design)
I didn't have a chance to blog last week and boy, was it a week. My kids, hubby, parents and my sister and niece all came out to Mountain View to spend time with me (and my sis) as we go through the program at 500 Startups. If you missed it, my company T&J Designs, was accepted into Batch 17 at 500. The Venture fund invests and mentor us through growth and fundraising. The program ends in August (and wish us good vibes on fundraising). Traveling back and forth from Chicago to SF has been interesting and a bit tiring but the learnings make it all worth it.
In addition to working, I had been planning a huge birthday bash for my husband in Napa. It finally happened last weekend and 10 of our close friends came out to eat, drink and spend time together. My lovely parents watched the kids while we went away for 4 days. Yes, they are amazing for doing so!
It was a great time despite feeling under the weather. We couldn't be more appreciative of our friends who flew out, drove out and got child care to spend the weekend with us. Cheers to you!
So I often get asked what my day or week looks like and this past one was so crazy I thought what a great post to show why sometimes I seem overwhelmed. Lots of good things happening, for sure, but also some surprises that round out the week.
