Scenes from my Week

A few moments from a much better week…pastel flower arrangement  {The prettiest leftovers from Threads & Blooms}

I’m pleased to announce that I feel significantly better than I did last week. A healthy combination of getting back to my yoga & pilates classes, mixed with a handful of solid nights’ sleep, and, as mentioned, a whole ton of soul searching have definitely contributed. And the fact that so so many of you were so kind to reach out in many different ways over the course of the last few days certainly helped.  I’m looking forward to carrying these good vibes into the weekend. And stand by the fact that if any of you ever need me to return the favor please don’t hesitate to reach out. As always, here’s a quick peek at my week in photos.

Depression and anxiety aren’t something that I talk about often here on the blog, and while I’ve done a lot of work on myself to deal with them, they’re still a very real thing in my life and something that I’ve wanted to discuss more frequently as they arise. I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of seeing perfectly perfect everything online and have recently found myself significantly more drawn to more authentic blogs and Instagram accounts. I’m craving that human connection – something that used to go hand in hand with blogging, but has fallen by the wayside as of late. And while I do my best to keep it as real as possible around here there is, of course, a lot that I just don’t have the chance to share.  Continue Reading
