Come Let Us Have Tea and Talk about Happy Things art by Lisa Congdon

Last week I met a friend for tea at a local cafe.  We sat and talked for hours and giggled like school-girls.  We didn’t bitch about work or politics or relationships.  Without a set intent, we avoided negative topics.  When I got home that night, I was so uplifted.  I smiled for days.  This is something I need to do more often.


Weekend Wanderings 7-28-12

It’s that time again!

Lazy Saturdays and time to catch up on all of the reading and exploring I didn’t get to during the work week.  Some of the things I found interesting…

Tips for buying a new sofa from Apartment Therapy.

Lisa Congdon’s beautiful hand lettering project.

And for a lighthearted moment, Jeremiah’s “Conversation with my 12-year-old Self”

If I could talk to my 12-year-old self, I think I’d tell myself not to worry too much about the move.  It will take a while, but eventually you’ll learn to love that place.

Anything you would tell your younger self?

Weekend Wanderings

During the week I find I don’t have much time to read all the news, blogs and such that I would like.  Thank goodness for the weekend though!

I can slow down a little bit and meander through the interwebs looking for interesting, unusual or beautiful things.  In this space, I’ll share with you some of what I come across that I think is worth sharing.
