You know we had to go... 😉 Our little TX trip is coming to a close and we’ve seen so much! Today we stopped at Magnolia and the Silos on our way back towards Dallas. One thing that was especially neat to me was the culture of excellence at Magnolia—from the people working there and their attitudes, to the way every aspect of how the customer experience was handled with care. We weren’t sure if we were going to make it in for a cupcake because the bakery was by far the most crowded line, but we did, right before closing time! (and @magnoliapress just opened in time for us!)
Current work in progress. I will always love contrast and classic, old-school type. It took a little bit of extra time to get here, but sometimes it’s just that much better because I’ve looked at it upside down and inside out and am absolutely sure that it’s the best it can be. By the way, my calendar for the rest of the year is filling up quickly due to client work and business projects, so if you’re thinking about a new look for the new year, now is the time to get in touch! Planning to spend the rest of the day tying up loose ends and packing because we’re headed to Texas tomorrow! 🤗
My challenge to you: pick a big, long book on something interesting and read it in the next week. 📚 I don’t know about you, but I know that it's easy for me to succumb to quick media consumption. Pop-culture & internet gossip, spending excessive amounts of time keeping up with people on social media, and even 5-minute self-help articles—it’s not all bad, but sometimes leaves us feeling like everything is shallow and vapid. That is why reading books is SO important. If you want your world to seem bigger, deeper and more interesting—if you want to stretch your mind and become smarter and more confident in your thinking--pick a nice fat book on an important person, idea or time in history. You will be amazed at how much it will stretch your mind, give you new ideas and refresh you on the possibilities of life. P. S. If you think non-fiction is boring, you’re out of touch. (Can I be your sassy older sister?) Try ‘Jungle of Stone’ if you want to be transported to the world of Mayan ruins and daring exploration or ‘The Curated Closet’ for styling your wardrobe and creating signature looks or ‘Messy Beautiful Friendship’ for a wonderful read on cultivating meaningful relationships. Sharing what I’ve been reading (as well as some of my favorite podcasts recently) on the blog this morning! Direct link in profile. And tell me what you’ve been reading!
New week, new work. Loving all of these bright and happy colors! ✨🍊
