Happy Friday, y'all! What are you up to this weekend? We have friends coming in town for the football game, including baby Harper Reese, so my heart is going to be full tomorrow. Sunday we're celebrating my Dad's birthday in Atlanta, which I'm looking forward to as well! Family + southern soul food is always a good time. Also, who else is freaking out excited about the finale of "Breaking Bad?!" I love that I have absolutely no idea how it's going to end, you know? It's going to be a great weekend -- I feel it!
Thanks to those of you who left sweet comments the other day when I had an emo blogging moment. All of them made me feel so good, so thank you for the love -- I needed it. Like I said, nothing beats blogging and this community -- it has been a saving grace for me on more than one occasion for sure.
I came across another passage that really put things into perspective for me last night:
Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you do not have.
Remember that what you have now was once among the things you only hoped for. -- Epicurus
Oh so true. Putting this one in my back pocket for keeps.
Well, on to more fun, creative, pretty things:
To round out the week, above is a board of stuff that's caught my eye lately:
1. This painting by Katie Rodgers. I especially loved her step-by-step Instavideo on how she made it!
2. These starry beauties from Ludevine
3. I love a good squirrel design -- I think I'm officially inspired
4. "Ella Minnow Pea" by Mark Duna (so cute, right?)
5. I'm looking forward to the day I can break my capes out again! Cape by Leslie Tessler, $385
And a few other things worth mentioning from around the web:
I can say my work has officially been on Ruffled -- to say I'm thrilled is an understatement!
Magnets have been added to the shop...see them here
Adding prints with my florals and quotes to the shop ASAP...plus, rubber stamps! Hooray!
This almost makes me not regret moving to NYC to live with my cousin right after college
(I spy NMP fans, maps + invitations!)
I'll be sharing photos from the event next week! Have a great weekend, you guys ♥
