Today.

Ladies


Today:


I am thankful for the time I spent this past week resting, relaxing, rejuvenating, chatting, laughing, watching, walking, listening, and eating on the Oregon coast with an amazing collection of creative, inspiring, blogging women: Andrea, Jen, Karen, Kelly Rae, Andrea, Mati, Myriam, Jen, Brene, Jen, Alex, and Tracey.


I am cleaning out the refrigerator.


I am planning new weekend creative projects that will begin again in September.


I am listening to Simon tell me stories about his time this past week with Grandma + Grandpa.


I am going on a hunt with Simon for a new purple light-saber.


I am restocking the fridge + picking up some fresh flowers at the grocery store.


I am keeping the laundry going.


I am thinking about signing up for one of Aby's online organizing workshops.


I am feeling better and coming out of that early-mid pregnancy fog + sickness.


I am looking forward to a weekend at home with Simon + Chris.

    so happy you are doing well Ali! You need rest and relax - it is not easy growing new life! My husband and I always had a funny joke when I was prego... I would be resting on the couch or laying down and he would say "what are you doing?"... and I would reply "can't you see I am busy creating life!".
    You have inspired me to use add some digital elements to my pictures for layouts. Oh and for trying different sizes of pics... made this the other day:

    This for the inspiration! Can't wait to see what you are up to in Setpember!

    As usual, great post and also enjoyed your keynote last week at CKU.
    As for the purple light saber. We have hand-me-over blue and green ones and based on what is and isn't showing up from online searches you may have a challenge if you haven't already gotten one--but you did mention "hunt" and "new".
    So here you go: [Skip to the last if you and Simon are okay with waiting a few days for shipping] Hasbro looks like it's your deal

    I had no idea you were part of the 'love bombers'until after reading Andrea and Kelly Rae's posts (omg..the picture of Kelly and Miriam...stunning, radiant, so present)...
    I have no doubt you came home with SO much more than 'good pics'...(wink wink)
    ... hope you are over the barfs and moving onto'cruise'

    Fun with friends at the beach is always a good thing!
    We passed through Oregon and stayed in Eugene last Saturday night on our way home from the redwood forest. I thought of you the whole time - trying to imagine which house might be yours, where Simon plays, where you shop, and where you take photos!
    Glad to hear you are feeling better now :))
