This week was a challenging one. I’m balancing the blog and Print Shop in the busy season. I had my hosting server crash for about an hour the other night making the blog not available and then the next day Shopify was down so sales for The Print Shop were not able to be processed for the entire day. I just had to roll with the punches and shift gears to make things all run smoothly. It’s a balancing act being a solo entrepreneur. I love the holiday season and I am so excited to embrace all the traditions that come with it. I have a tea and chocolate advent calendar and can’t wait to see my family for Thanksgiving. 🥳 After not seeing them last year, this year will be very special.

I joke that on my Christmas list are new socks but it is so true. Henri is my little sock monster and no matter how many pairs I buy, they seem to disappear before the end of the season. Plus, I get cold all the time so this is a way to keep me extra warm in the colder months.

  1. Rebecca, your Paris logs are so good, I can’t wait to get back. But puppy Zoe is coming in a couple of weeks, so the little mini bernadoodle will keep me home for the next two or three months.
    Thanks for all your wonderful tips.
