over here it's tea + toast + quilts + more episodes of doc martin than i will ever admit as my body gives me a message of "rest is the only way baby girl" in the form of a cold.
and as i've been resting in the quiet, i keep coming up with more things i want to tell you...
i might be a bit behind the crowd, but i have been totally bewitched by downton abbey. not since colin firth brooded through pride and prejudice have i been this in love with a story. oh my goodness. and the trailer for season 3? yes. please.
viv's "behind the photo" series is so so good. this post about choosing to see beauty is a must read. yes.
we've started going to the library and although EJ hasn't quite gotten the hang of the picking out the books to take them home part, we are having fun. a current favorite is Yes by Amy Krouse Rosenthal. i look forward to having a surprise "Yes Day" with Ellie.
the posts over at roots of she are filling me up. this one by darrah and this one by jen had me wanting to just hug each of them tight. (darrah's post even caused me to create a pinboard of posts and articles that will help me remember i'm not alone on those tough mama days)
between stacy's conscious queen's manifesta (and the way the words came to her) and hannah's post about "My Superpower is You," I am deeply inspired to put pen to paper and write pieces of my story that I've been holding close. Yes.
i've been a fan of rachel awes for a while now, and these simple words about love are beautiful.
Now that I am settling into my new studio and some organization, I am taking custom orders again over at my Etsy shop. You can see the lockets, bracelets, and other customizable options here.
