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
