3 a.m Eternal

 

CGP2017_FallLouette-16

It’s 5:58 am and I’ve been up with my youngest, Rose.

All. Night. Long.

We’ve been walking the hallways, rocking, singing and everything else you do to lull a babe to sleep.

Oh, I forgot about the cursing. Not directly at my child, but at pretty much anything else. Walking, rocking, singing and cursing. Please go the F*&K to sleep!

(**Do not click on the above link if you are squirmy about the F-bomb. But DO click on the link if you have no shame).

Unfortunately, Rose has not slept through the night in basically two years. I really can’t think about it too much or I get a little depressed. Not complaining. Just stating the facts.

I always find myself singing songs to my children that just pop into my head. Madonna’s “Holiday” is a favorite, Lisa Loeb “Stay”–I know every single word.

But…this little gem came out of NOWHERE  this morning and I definitely started to laugh at myself.  Obscure? Absolutely.  Awesome? You bet your sweet 90’s tush it is.

Does anyone else remember this song??? Listen to the lyrics. Yes, KLF…3 am does feel E-T-E-R-N-A-L.  Perfect little club jam for sleepless Mothers. No one wants to be up at 3 am. It totally feels eternal. Right? Cheers to all my 90’s Mamas out there that now experience a whole new meaning to “3 am Eternal” that has nothing to do with clubbing.

 

PS- If you live on Hilton Head Island and need a caffeine jolt…visit my pals at Java Burrito Co. They just launched their Holiday Coffee drinks!

Construction has begun…

Here are some answers to your burning questions:

  1. “I love Louette!!! Is the NEW shop going to be same?” Answer: YES!!! But…better. Just like my Grandmother–her namesake shop is just getting more amazing & beautiful with age. No detail will be overlooked. We have painstakingly removed every. single. piece. of reclaimed lumber that was in our original shop (I’m using the word “we” to mean my husband and his crew.) We will be transferring everything from our original location to our new location at The Village at Wexford. Plus, we’ve been traveling throughout the South East picking up even more reclaimed material to use in the NEW shop.  CLICK HERE to see why my husband rocks!

  2. “Why are you moving?” Answer: Because I’m crazy. Well…yes, I’m crazy but that’s not the only reason we are moving. Over the past three years we have developed a strong  following from Hilton Head Island locals (which still blows my mind and makes me feel eternally grateful). We’ve begun to need a place with more available parking for our valued customers. We learned a space was available at The Village at Wexford.   I’m a huge sucker for cool concepts and amazing design–Louette’s new neighbors are unique locally owned businesses like Java Burrito, Gifted, Island Child, Needlepoint Junction and Porter & Pig (just to name a few) that are bringing truly original concepts to the island. Its the perfect fit and we couldn’t be more excited to be at the heart of shopping local. DSC_4658-THE2654PROJECT-Louette-Web                                                                                                         
  3. “Will you have all the same great clothing and gifts?” Answer: Absolutely! The concept behind Louette will remain the same. We appreciate the simple loveliness in life. Everything in the shop is hand-picked. Louette is a carefully curated selection of classic clothing, home accents & gifts. As in the past, we strive to support local and regional artists and designers. We will continue to offer a variety of locally made products.

We are now excepting resumes for part-time positions. MUST be able to work weekends and approximately 12-15 hours per week. Please email your resume to: info@louetteboutique.com
