7 for seven

Leave a comment

7forseven_key-and-arrowLet’s face it // Mondays stink. Or at least we typically expect them to stink. That is why, every Monday, I post seven positives from the previous seven days of the week as a reminder of what I have so that the week starts out on an upswing. There is much truth in the belief that happy people attract good things, so it is important to start the week out right. Sometimes it’s the more grand, but other times, it’s the simple things.


I have to be honest, even if that makes me look ungrateful (I promise, I’m not!) — I’m busy, overwhelmed, but tremendously happy. I want to skip this week’s 7 for seven. In fact, I want to skip many 7 for sevens, but I’m going to hang in there until at least July when it’s time to renew the ol’ blog. Many changes are happening (mostly good changes), but it feels like something is in the air — something wanting to open up even bigger, if I allow it — and I’ve decided to allow it. I’m not sure what that means quite yet, but it’s time. Writing will never leave me — it will simply morph (‘simply’ seems like the wrong word). I can’t wait to figure out what that is and share that with you.

So — just a quick update for this week. Patrick and I had our WAREs opening party where he played a show with our T I M B E R + B R A S S objects on display with other makers and artists in Austin. We went out to dinner with a couple of friends before sending them off to their wedding in Kansas (so sad we can’t make it!!), and I’m nearing the end of the school year (hallelujah!). It’s been a good week, and it’ll be even better when this one is … well, the weekend. 😉

I hope to inspire you to reflect on all you have to be grateful & that your week brings you even more positivity + balance + bliss!  Feel free to share your seven with me as well / or even just a couple!

Have a wonderful week!
