I haven’t disappeared… Promise.
The last few weeks have been interesting, to say the least. We’ve had visitors from Hungary, birthday celebrations, showroom openings, two trips to San Francisco (well, David did, I just had one), people going out of town, people coming into town. I’ll spare you the details, but it was a mad house. Things are starting to get back to normal… sort of.
Right now we are reworking our furniture workroom to accommodate a more streamlined production. This means bringing more people in and shuffling work stations around without cutting into our work schedule. So what it really means is loads of overtime and a lack of sleep. Yay! On top of that big change, we had a showroom opening for one of our good friends in San Francisco last week, complete with a red carpet (and lots of flashbulbs). The party was sponsored by Luxe magazine, among others so it was a big-to-do with a veritable who’s who of the furniture design world present. It made for some great people watching.
Wanting to make the most of our time in the city by the bay, David had us booked solid with meetings the next day. We had just one hour of free time once we were dressed and ready for the day so we decided to do something that we never do when we are in San Francisco… we took pictures with the Golden Gate Bridge (and Alcatraz too).
In all of our many (many, many) trips to San Francisco, we never stopped to take a picture of the two of us (or even one of us) in front of the Golden Gate Bridge on the San Francisco side (oddly, we have several from the other side of the bridge). We decided it was time for that to change. It was an unusually clear day and we got some great shots. We also had a few spare minutes so I was able to convince David to visit my favorite spot in all of San Francisco, the Palace of Fine Arts. I seriously think that we need a second home that has a view of the Palace. Ahhh… one can dream.
