Entries in Inspiration (153)
Saw this pin and my heart smiled. Such amazing work. I'm still recovering from a terrible fever-like bug that hit me yesterday. ICK. But hopefully rest tomorrow and then a BBQ yay! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
Hey there! So my workload is not slowing down as hoped. Sad day. This time last year I quit blogging for 6ish weeks (a pattern perhaps?). Since it pains me to ignore the blog completely, I've decided to go "blogging light" until I can work in the 15+ hrs/wk it takes to generate my own content. Until then I'll feature things that make me SWOON and that simply make the world a lovelier place.
Thank you so much for your understanding! XOXO

How fun is this tumblr? I love a well done theme—simple and straighforward. And also a good reminder about perspective. I so desperately need a reminder to keep my eyes on the true goal. Are you worried about the clouds, wainting on the sun, or resting in assuredness?

No reason for loving seafoam today. I just thought "oooo pretty!" and then made a collection for inspiration. I'm looking forward to catching up on cleaning and feeling organized. And then a superhero birthday party, haha. Anyone else have fun plans or lack of plans?
Here's wishing you a great weekend!
Are vacations overwhelming to anyone else? It's like you sandwich "relaxing" between scrambling to get ready/work ahead and then again trying to catch up on work/house chores.
Regardless—I had a BLAST last week.
We chose to drive all night from St. Louis to Maryland (WHAT were we thinking?!). It's like I was in college (young and dumb). Somehow I recovered with only a 4 hour nap and then spent an incredible afternoon on the beach in Ocean City.
The main purpose of the trip was a wedding, which was simply lovely. Held at the Mount Airy Mansion, where George Washington's daughter was also married. The same boxwood bushes still guard the entrance. Crazy.
Another highlight of the trip was sailing in the Chesapeake Bay. I've never been on a sail boat and OH how relaxing and fun it was. I wouldn't mind making it a regular activity. We stopped by USNA in Annapolis and walked around the harbor. Then also spent a night out at the National Harbor with all the wedding attendees. So fun.
Hours spent with my love. Hours relaxing & enjoying life. Hours getting to know family.
Time well spent.
Do I have any DC area readers? Or East Coast fans? Hard to believe this summer is coming to an end soon!
