Lulu Letty

new adventures = new blog

I never thought my blogging break would extend into a 4 month long hiatus. Many of you have emailed and left comments wondering about my absence and the short answer is- Cole and I bought a house!! During all the craziness that comes with purchasing your first house and moving, I kept thinking and rethinking the future of Lulu Letty and kept coming to the same decision- it was time to move on. While I've cherished each and every minute of this blog, and have had the most amazing, supportive and patient readers,  it's time for me to head in a new direction. And since it seems I can never truly give up blogging all together, I've created a new space to enjoy new adventures. I hope you'll continue to read along...

Whew, it's taken me a week to get these photos posted! I've been quite busy recently taking care of an exciting endeavor for Cole and I and if you follow my instagram (lulu_letty) you probably already know what I'm talking about. Mums the word for now. ;) This weekend is Cole's birthday. My old man turns 32!!! I can't believe this will be the 12th birthday we've celebrated together as a couple and how old that makes me feel!! Ha. Love you forever, Darling!!

I'm back from my unexpected hiatus. The last two weeks have been a bit rough with my Hashimoto's flaring up in a bad way. I'm not sure if others with Hashi's have this problem but anything from stress to illness to even bug bites can make my thyroid go berserker. And in the last two weeks I've dealt with all of the above. First was the stress of the pop-up shop, then I got a cold/flu, next came a nasty spider bite that got all gross and swollen. Bah. The good news is that I finally found a MN doctor and made an appt for Wednesday.

In other (more fun) news, Cole and I spent Saturday afternoon at SnowGrade, a men's pop-up shop, in NE Minneapolis. After seeing an excellent axe restoration demonstration hosted by Best Made and given by Nick Zdon, we walked around drooling over Red Wing boots, Faribault blankets, Best Made axes, Leather Works, MN wallets & suspenders and Levi's Vintage Clothing from BlackBlue. I kid you not when I say I really envy boys and their sartorial options. The best part of the afternoon came right as we were leaving when a lovely reader and blogger named Jess spotted me and stopped to say hi! This was the first time I've ever been approached in public and it was quite lovely! I just hope I wasn't too awkward and didn't freak her out. :o

Day Tripper

Day Trippers
Day Tripper
How was your weekend? Mine was both crazy busy and completely wonderful! Our first Band of Thrifters pop-up sale was a great success! Friday night was so packed we could hardly move around the shop! I can't thank everyone enough for coming out and supporting our new endeavor! I'm a bit behind on emails and comments but I hope to catch up early this week.

As promised last week on instagram, here I am sporting the lovely "daytrippers" set from the awesome Valentine's Day team-up of Melie Bianco and Seychelles! They're offering discount rates on different pairings of your choice and the offer ends Feb 14th! You know I have an unhealthy obsession with tassels but what could be more perfect than having them on both your bag and loafers. I say the more the merrier!
