I'm so lucky to look at skies like these every night.
Happy Friday lovely ones. Every Friday, I've been posting some sort of fun facts, and last week I posted a list of things I loved about my week. This week, I'm doing both!
5 things about me -
I've discovered the beauty of contradictions. I used to think that it was unacceptable that I was both quiet, and full of moxie. That I was afraid to try things, and tenacious. That I was strong, and weak. etc. What a wonderous thing to embrace both all sides, and how really spectacular it is to be all of these things instead of any one. I cherish the conversations I've had on this subject.
Music is one of the things that I cannot live without. Somehow I forget for a few days or weeks, and then I put it on and my heart expands tenfold. And I remember again.
I once got up in the middle of the night to watch a meteor shower with my Grandpa, and it is one of my fondest memories ever. I think I was in my early 20's and living with my grandparents at the time. We laid on lounge chairs in the backyard looking up at the sky. Pure. Beauty. Simplicity.
I had a mole diagnosed as melanoma on my back in early 2009, and it changed my life. It was caught early, and removed. I kept almost all of my fear to myself, and I had a lot of it. What a lesson that was. It was such an intense experience...I would love to share a bit of it with you - a post will come.
I have been feeling the need to simplify, and de-clutter for some time. I've officially begun the work, and it feels good. Letting go to open up to what is yet to come!
Five things I love about my week -
painting! I worked on a piece that I've had half done, it's on its way... C said why did you ruin that piece? The truth is, I never looked at it as anywhere near being done. I can smile because no matter what anyone else thinks, I see and love the process and progress.
framing some of the prints I've had laying around. Now I can't wait to play with where they will hang....
sending off 2 lovely rings this week, and getting a love note once one of the girls made it to her new home. There is nothing better than hearing how happy someone is when they receive one of my packages. Love.
getting my hair colored! this was a much needed and wonderful treat this week.
fun with friends this weekend. We are heading down to San Diego for some R&R, and did I mention I'll be indulging in great food?
ok I'm sneaking in a 6th thing -
discussing details of a designer tag sale! Think fancy yard sale...with flea market, vintage finds, and maybe a few new unique things - mostly home related (at least for the first one). In Fall. As we figure it out, I'll share the deets.
As always, I'd love to hear from you. Either something you love about your week, or a fun fact. Please share it feels good.
