(leaf heart found last week on the galer steps in seattle.)
*for all of your green couch love. it’s true. following our bliss = being bold + fearless, even when it comes to silly things like choosing a couch color. thanks for reminding me. i really do believe in the importance of showing up in our home spaces – filling our homes with treasures and furniture that best represent who we are today (not 10 years ago) so that we can recognize ourselves in our own homes, that our surroundings can evolve just as we do, that we can remember who we are in our own homes every single day. this stuff is so important.
*speaking of couches, i’m feeling really thankful that my favorite design/decor blog featured peeks into our home today. holly, the dear dear woman behind decor8
who i have admired forever and who writes sweet emails that encourage and warm my heart, made me leap when she featured some of our photos on decor8
today (along with some questions + answers about house stuff). thank you, holly!
*thankful for the last couple of days that have felt squarely like spring in seattle. doors open. windows open. bliss.
*thankful for the word proud.
*and for long conversations with my husband about what really matters, about how we can do better, about how we love well, about making plans to celebrate 10 years.
*thankful for old friends reaching out to reconnect
*for peanut butter + jelly sandwiches
*for tears that arrive when i listen to a friend tell me the story of belonging, of not belonging, of finding love, of losing love, of finding refuge in her work and friends and hope.
*for friends that can relate to my laziness when it comes to computer habits and workout routine (it might be time for an intervention).
*for travel plans to sunny places.
*for new stationery products coming soon (can’t wait to show you guys!). and for all the creative business goodness coming down the pipe.
*and for a sweet youtube video
about an elephant who finds and unlikely mate (thank you, jennifer, for the link).
