1000 GIFTS

Wednesday, April 18


With so much going on the past few weeks, I had sort of been falling out of fashion- not feeling creative or very inspired. Trying to catch up on everything left me struggling to balance the demands of work and school and a social life.

Lately I've begun noticing the joy in the littlest things. I've been waking up 15 minutes early to just lay in bed and watch the sun move through my big bay window and reading more novels. I go on walks with my camera in the wonderful mix of sunshine and rain. I screen calls/emails. I talk to my sister on the phone. An accomplishment fills me with a moment of peace and well-being.

Inspired by Sarah from Fairy Tales are True, I too am reading (but more like obsessed with) One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp and am excited to start my very own 1000 gifts list. I love the idea, the mindfulness. Being present. I hope to learn to be fulfilled in whatever I do, in whatever happens, that seems like the challenge to me :)

easter is always one of my favorites and this year was no disappointment. each year i'm continually captured by the sense of renewal the day brings - along with chocolate bunnies (and good books!). this easter i celebrated in a robins egg blue dress from forever 21, fresh pink tulips & appetizers at our favorite restaurant downtown with cj for dinner. love, love, love.

 lately i have been beyond overwhelmingly busy. normally this is something that immediately puts me in a bad mood, but this time it has been so different. i think its because i truly love and enjoy my work (in all forms) to the point that i'm up until crazy hours at night, and have no issues waking up just a few hours later to wrap things up. i'm sleepy, but its fun, so i can't complain too much :)
