tree heart, found in oakland
(more love thursdays over here)

found this lovely 4 chambered heart yesterday on our walk. i love how these hearts just appear – like little secrets exposed, only they’re happy secrets wanting to be found, released and shared. and here we are, our little family of feet…this photo totally cracks me up…
our family...in a bit of randomness:
my first ever stationery line debuted at the nyc stationery show last week . although i wasn’t there to see things in action, i’m told the line did well (thank you, universe). also, a dear blog pal wrote to say she was there and saw the products and fancy displays in person. totally exciting for me. products should be up on the brush dance website soon. i’ll keep you posted…..i can’t believe i’m a girl with stationery products out in the world. omg. totally bizarre.i met someone yesterday who told me about his dear community of friends. he called them his family of intention. i’ve been thinking about it ever since – totally love this as a description of the people who we hold close in our lives. perfect. family of intention.

been thinking about jen a lot. she’s home from her incredible journey and i can’t wait to hear her stories. what an amazing woman she is. makes me want to turn my travel dreams into real.

also been thinking about how life is coming together here. how i have grown into some pretty wonderful friendships as well as into a life i love. we were on the phone this week with our mortgage broker (whose also a friend up in portland) so we can begin planning for our move back up there and i just kept thinking: man, we just got comfortable here these last few months and now here we are planning to leave later this year. such is life i suppose – a series of transitions. one after the other. i’m trying not to fight it. that part will come later, i’m sure.

book pre-orders continue to rock it. you guys are so making my life a living dream. thank you….i don’t believe i’ve shown you the new + improved cover of the book and the back of the book, too (designed by book designer extraordinaire marissa). how cool it is to see it coming together in full color, both in real life and in heart.
saw this video on someone’s blog (forgive me, i can’t remember who), but totally loved it. it speaks to the part of me that sometimes wants to throw my hands up in frustration. this woman inspires me to not give up. pretty incredible.

also been thinking about babies. yeah, i’m thinking i totally want one…..
