something beautiful: good news (and a quote you'll die over!)


yes, yes it is.  you see we've been, well.......not busy.  not busy at all.  unless of course you're talking about me and the mister, because in that case, we've been Bizz-AY.

.........that's what you get for that smart-allick comment up there at the top.

lets just say that the first 20 weeks for me aren't my favorite thing in the whole world.  although I feel so incredibly lucky and so incredibly humbled and so incredibly blessed, laying at home all day (half running to the toilet and half moaning on the couch) is not my cup-o-tea.  not that I ever actually throw up.  see, that's the thing.  my body likes to play this fun game where one out of every 15 or 2 or 37 puke-inducing events, I actually WILL throw up.  so its kinda like this fun little guessing game.  I stopped running to the bathroom.  but sometimes that leaves me heaving all the way to the nearest wastebasket.

okay, enough of that.  how's about something beautiful?

I found this quote on pinterest.  it's here if you want it.  I think I'll write it out on canvas and frame it in my room.

Being tender and open is beautiful. As a woman, I feel continually shhh’ed. Too sensitive. Too mushy. Too wishy washy. Blah blah. Don’t let someone steal your tenderness. Don’t allow the coldness and fear of others to tarnish your perfectly vulnerable beating heart. Nothing is more powerful than allowing yourself to truly be affected by things. Whether it’s a song, a stranger, a mountain, a rain drop, a tea kettle, an article, a sentence, a footstep, feel it all – look around you. All of this is for you. Take it and have gratitude. Give it and feel love.
