A Weekend Mood Board

posted on: October 22, 2016


I just wanted to pop in and say that I hope you all have an amazing weekend! I was thinking about posting a little weekend mood board on the blog every Friday, or every other Friday. Do you like that idea? I've always been a little touch and go with Friday blogging. I'd rather send any inspiring links in a newsletter (sign up over to the right), and if there isn't a newsletter, save it for next week.

Anyway, lets try this for today. Here's a combination of images that I'm feeling going into the weekend.


 




And if you missed it, some musings on instagram:

Motherhood-
I don't think we choose motherhood because it is convenient. Honestly, I believe most things worth while are severely inconvenient: friendships, marriage, and family with all of its dysfunctions. But having to work to make these relationships bloom makes them that more enjoyable and beautiful. 

Marriage- 
Being two different people in two different places in life is the greatest challenge of our marriage. With couple’s therapy, I get to see that his intentions are to love me and to be a good person. Day in and day out it’s kids and dishes and work — it can be hard to remember what made us fall in love." So date your man.

Style-
I go through phases, but mostly I live for statement earrings. Especially when it's season transition and we lean on dark tones more often than not. Having statement earrings with a pop of color to off-set any look has been kind of fun.

Tech-
As we gear up to watch Dot. (an all new series about a little girl who loves tech) premiering this Saturday at 11 on@SproutChannel, I keep thinking about that time River found a boombox on a stoop here in Brooklyn. She couldn’t wait to pop in a few dusty cassettes from her father and dance with Oak before bed that evening. But instead of dragging it home, I sat River down and asked her to draw a boombox she imagined for herself on my iPhone drawing app. Later that night, as a family, we searched and bought a new (old) boombox like the one she drew. I'm sure our free stoop explorations are not over, but I feel good knowing she has the patience to express what she wants soundly and creatively through words, art, and tech. 

Enjoy your weekend!
