It’s Summertime!

Happy First Day of Summer, my friends!

Here’s to lots of sunshine and pool time and fresh fruits and veggies. Here’s to blue skies and bare feet and evenings spent on the porch. Here’s to ice cream (soy, of course!) and dining outdoors. Here’s to picnics and prayer walks, stargazing, and those sapphire-sky-moon-filled nights. Here’s to new adventures and new beginnings and daring to go after our dreams.

Blessings to you and yours this summer!


Giving Thanks 6.19.12

This week, my heart is thankful for:

Summer salads piled high with fresh fruits and veggies (last night’s included fresh banana slices, raspberries, blueberries, and raspberry vinaigrette)
Timely words and encouragement from sweet friends
The promise that those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength
Refreshing rainstorms
Morning sunshine
Thrift store art journaling finds

What about you? What’s making you smile this week? :)

Like Rain

It’s been raining here today, but I can’t complain. Every so often, I appreciate a good rainstorm.

It refreshes in a way a sunny day just can’t, don’t you think?

Happy Sunday — and Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads out there. :)

Life Lately: In Photos

Lately, life looks like this: icy weather; keeping cozy; brunch dates; art journaling; cocoa + creativity; writing and brainstorming; dreaming of spring; and lots of creative inspiration + refreshment at a local arts gala event.

I’m thankful for these moments.

What have you been up to?
