It's Friday! This week felt long. Was it the same for you? I've got all this stuff swirling around in my mind lately and have yet to take the time to sit and be to make sense of it all yet. I (re)listened to this podcast yesterday. It reminded me that to figure things out you can't just keep doing, but rather you have to stop, get quiet, and listen. The thing is. I'm not exactly known for my listening skills. I'm good at talking, at doing, at moving. My goal right now is to try to listen.
This weekend I'm road tripping with my momma to southern Oregon to visit family. Time on the road is my favorite. I just love riding in cars for miles and miles. It gives me time to think, to write, maybe even to listen. I'm looking forward to spending some time with my mom's family. My grandparents just returned from a months long trip around the US (they've finally checked off all 50 states -- how cool is that?!) and are back home in Oregon. It's so special to be in the same state as them and see them more often.
If you're not spending most of your weekend on I-5, here are some finds from around the web...
+ Gallery wall feeling flat? Here are 12 gallery wall alternatives. (image above)
+ A magical backyard. (Can't find the source!)
+ I want to order this book.
+ Very impressed with this all seasons capsule wardrobe.
+ Speaking of capsule wardrobes, my favorite blogger is leaving blog land for a little while. (I'll still refer back to her site all the time.)
+ I need to make this pasta. (Conveniently I have Boursin in my fridge right now.)
