We just had one of those weekends that’s so satisfying. Saturday morning, we woke up without an alarm, I made chocolate banana bread (recipe coming Tuesday) for breakfast, then Brad and I laid back in bed for an hour and talked about the things on our minds that get missed during the habitual back-and-forth of the weekdays. In other words: we relaxed.
Then we drove down to Los Altos to check out a really cool shop the magazine featured a while ago. It’s full of DIY materials, party supplies, and every cute crafty thing you’ve ever seen on anyone’s Pinterest board. I couldn’t take enough pictures–they had a felt bar, for crying out loud.
And THEN, I found a pair of jeans that fit and were super discounted at a little boutique. And THEN, we went into a running store my new D.O. recommended and I finally got a new pair of running shoes that were also discounted. And THEN, we went home and I went running to try out my sneaks. And THEN, we spontaneously redesigned this blog.
At work I sometimes say things like, “you can really see the touch of the hand on that product” when I want to sound obnoxious, but actually, I mean that when I talk about this blog. This space is so personal. I write about the things I talk to my family and closest friends about. And when I read your comments, I want to reach out and hug you, make you a meal, and stay up late to hear about your heart, too. So we decided to simplify things here and make the only ornament something I drew by hand. Let it be known, those lines represent the highest tier of my artistic ability.
Thank you, Brad, for taking a break from your other projects to work on this one. And thank you to all of you who read. I’m thankful for you.
