Happy Friday

“Gratitude bestows many benefits. It dissolves negative feelings: anger and jealousy melt in its embrace, fear and defensiveness shrink. Gratitude deflates the barriers to love.”- Roger Walsh

{Getting Dressed}

belted skirt

Seriously. Getting dressed is now something I’m grateful for. I LIVE in black spandex and if I’m not careful I’ll never get dressed in real clothes. Working from home can make it hard to keep clear lines of when I’m “off” and when I’m “on”, so getting dressed is my new boundary marker. It makes me feel good 🙂

{1300 On Fillmore}

San Francisco soul food

Soul food. GOOD soul food. Our table was full of cornbread, honey butter, fried chicken, short ribs and biscuits. Highly recommend.


Shauna Niequist

Another kind of soul food. Another one I highly recommend.

Find it on Shauna Niequist’s website.

Happy Friday!
