I cannot thank you enough for all of the sweet calls, text and comments yesterday about our announcement. I read through every single one and got a little emotional thinking our little boy is going to be surrounded by so much love. I’ll just be over here living on Cloud 9 all weekend.Read more
Happy Friday, friends! Did everyone have a great week? A few of you have recently asked for a few updates about my job with Amy. One of my favorite parts of the job is photoshoot day (no surprises, here). Styling and flower arranging make these long days so much fun! Plus, seeing the finished projects always give me so much inspiration.
Happy Friday! Honestly, I am smiling from ear to ear as I write this because this was just an all around awesome week.
This week was all about slowing down. I came into the new year with great intentions, big goals and laser focus. This week I realized is that sometimes it is more important to slow down and let things work themselves out with time. For the last three weeks I have been going 100 miles a minute and this week (unintentionally) I decided to accept that not everything will happen all at once.
We have been experiencing some major rainy/gloomy weather in Dallas this week and my mood has taken a major hit. I don’t know if anyone feels this way, but January has been one super long month and I am ready for it to be over. Not that I want to wish away the days, but I think I always put too much pressure on myself to be perfect and to think I can meet all my goals in just the first 4 weeks of the year. This month is always a reset, a fresh start but I seem to add too much to my plate and it never ends well. For the next two weeks, I decided to throw my yearly goals aside and try to focus on what is happening in this moment.
Today, I woke up with a smile on my face and the sun starting to shine through our window. It’s going to be a great Friday!
We made it to first Friday of 2017 and I think we should all get a gold star :)
Patrick and I are headed to the mountains later this afternoon for our first ski trip of the season. I think the crisp mountain air and some skiing will be just what the doctor ordered. I have to say, I have been feeling great all week with an abundance of inspiration that has been flooding my brain. Honestly, I can’t seem to shut it off.
Oh Friday, I love you.
After what have been a few crazy weeks around here, I am excited to have a relaxing weekend to recharge and reset. Somehow we are halfway through October (how did this happen) and the holidays are right around the corner. This week I sat down to brainstorm some new content for A Dash of Details and we have some really exciting things in the works. Quick question for all of you: Is there anything specific you would like to see on the site? What kind of content is your favorite? I would love to hear from you!
“Great people do things before they’re ready. They do things before they know they can do it Doing what you’re afraid of, getting out of your comfort zone, taking risks like that- that is what life is. You might be really good. You might find something about yourself that’s really special and if you’re not good, who cares? You tried something. Now you know something about yourself.”- Amy Poheler
This week has been filled with lots of highs and lows. It has been a week that taught me something about myself. A week that made me realize I am stronger than I thought I was last week. Life has a funny way of throwing you curve balls, but I’ve realized embracing them is what make you a better person. I think without the lows, the highs wouldn’t feel as good. This week, the highs were incredible! I met Mark D. Sikes, Reese Witherspoon and spent my days catching up with “my people”. It was seriously one of those weeks where I will look back and think, did this really happen?
Do you ever feel like sometimes short weeks seem to feel longer than the rest? While I needed a few extra cups of coffee and some major sweat sessions at hot yoga this week, I ended the week feeling very accomplished. I have some really exciting projects coming up and I cannot wait to share! In other news, this weekend is extra special because my momma decided to make a surprise visit to Dallas. We had not seen each other all summer and I was in desperate need of some momma/daughter time.
