I think every choir must dream to have a rehearsal like last night. Even though we spent a third of it debriefing about our concert last Saturday, it was an amazing time of connecting. To have so many different women in one room, to build each other up, speak some hard truths in love and also agree on one vision is something no amount of rehearsing can create.⠀
Our fearless leader, conductor and friend @elisenaccarato said it best: "One vision, one voice, one heart. The best bonding comes out of debrief sessions. A myriad of women coming together for one collective vision. I could not be more humbled to work with such an invested ensemble. My mind is calm and heart is full after tonight"⠀
Music. Sisterhood. A Myriad of journies. ⠀
The truth in our vision statement rang so loud and clear last night. ⠀
This is how I feel about it being Friday. Anybody else?! 🥳
This weekend I get to see one of my college roommates (🎉) & it’s also our spring break. I’m hoping to finish up the second part of my Brush Calligraphy Guide and get it ready for you guys! 🗒✍🏻
This new guide will include practice with finding your style, letter connections, & bouncy calligraphy. You’ve all been so helpful while I’ve been working on this new guide. And I have another question for you!
What words would you like to see broken down with letter connections?! Tell me in the comments! 💛

The sunshine keeps hopping in and out of the frame with the wind blowing fluffy grey clouds around above. Love how much we can see the landscape changing up here for miles around. Perfect views for home baking days with my boys 🌿✨

Ogni volta che mangio gli agnolotti mi creo nella mente cento storie sulle mani delle nonne che li hanno creati per anni: gli arrosti a rosolarsi, la pasta che viene tirata, la farina cosparsa perché non si attacchino, e vassoi infiniti per sfamare le famiglie immense.
E allora grazie, @pastificiodelmonferrato, per aver fatto rivivere al mio palato il gusto degli agnolotti di mia Nonna💕

*still* currently reading 📖 The People in the Trees, reflecting 💡 on my intentions for the week and thoroughly enjoying the spring weather this week (sunshine ☀️ and highs of 75💆🏽♀️)
Just some brief thoughts on my current read — it’s taking a dark turn, I absolutely obsessed with Hanya’s writing ✍🏽 and wishing I get a good bit of time to read cause it’s the kinda novel you want to have a big chunk of time to really sit with it. Think I can finish it this weekend?! That is my plan 💬 Are you starting or ending a book this weekend? tell me below 👇🏽

Lessons I’ve learned / re learned so far in 2019:
Trust actions much more than words.
Don’t get too comfortable wherever God moves and plants us, because we never know how long or short a season of being rooted somewhere will last.
No matter how much we’re did wrong, never take anything personally. Inexplicably Bad behavior is a reflection of the one who gives into using it, not the one who it’s directed at.
Not everyone we come across is meant to be a best, close or lifelong friend of ours and sometimes we’re not meant to be that to others either. And that’s ok.
We don’t have to take part in games people play, games meant to provoke and shrink us. As tempting as it can be to stoop to low levels as a response, we can always choose to be bigger than pettiness.
Sometimes God’s will, as merciful and mysterious as it can be, doesn’t seamlessly line up with ours. What we want isn’t always the best for us like we think it is.
Watch closely how people treat others who can’t do anything superficial or materialistic for them, who have nothing else to offer but a kind heart.
Double tap if you want your home to be a place where all the things bring you joy!
Simplifying isn’t about ridding your home of everything, but instead it’s about eliminating the distractions that don’t bring you joy or serve you well.
That’s a really personal thing and it looks different for everyone! We’re all on our own journey and I’m just thankful I get to share in yours. 🤗
It's supposed to snow again today, but I got out more of my Spring clothes and organized the closet, so I'm feeling pretty happy! It looks like James has 4 things to wear all Spring 😅 I'm trying to shop small and shop less!

(日本語は下) @sacredb70 has a gorgeous smile, uplifting energy and warm welcoming vibe. Is that because she is doing yoga for a long time? Or was she born this way...?
Hmm...I'm not sure, but anyway her class is perfect to energize your body and soul🥑
Have you ever had one of those moments that struck you in such a way that your outlook would never be the same?
How fast did life get thrown into the mix and that 🔥 started to burn out?
Have you had your eyes on a dream that you feel is so far out of your reach?
Don’t let all the negatives that creep into your mind make you believe that you can’t, because YOU CAN!
You don’t need others approval. You don’t need others to join you. You don’t need experience.
All you need is to get up and walk.
Walk towards your goal. Make moves each day that will get you closer to where you want to be.
You CAN change your life, your attitude, your outlook but it takes you making the first step!

Finding new things to be excited about in the dead of winter can be difficult at times, but finding @evolutionfresh kind of changed the game. This one has come with lots of ups and downs, freak snow storms and learning to go with the flow while I try and prioritize my mental and physical health all at the same time. With no added sugars, it's just all the good stuff in one bottle and keeps me going all day with the energy for whatever comes next.

A claaaaasic. It’s amazing how you can sit down to do all your work and find so many other things to do. I did a handful of emails this morning and then felt like making an avocado sauce for left over potatoes. Was it delicious? Yes. Did it help me get anywhere this morning? No, not really. I meant to work out and shower, and clean, but.... I guess it’ll all have to wait for later.
Nothing feels more productive than getting things done first thing in the morning. Started out with a morning run, and then Elliot and I drove up to Auburn to get birth certificates...because let’s be honest we didn’t have a need for them until kindergarten enrollment time. Elliot ended up falling asleep in the car because she woke up at 5:30 😴 and now that my morning was productive I think I’ll just sit on the couch for the remainder of the day.

Dzień dobry dzień dobry witam Was kochani i witam kalendarzowa wiosnę dziś oficjalnie. Pomimo, że ponuro i chłodno ( najchetniej wziełabym koce pod pache i kierunek kanapa) to daje jej szansę na rozruch może zaświeci słońcem i powieje ciepłem, by móc wietrzyć głowy i kostki🙈życzę Wam kochani dobrego dnia z mnóstwem energii. Chowacie już grube swetry, garderoba gotowa?
